Multiple Fake news claims-: News peddling in social media claims of coronavirus being created in a lab near Wuhan city. Irrefutable: The #coronavirus was engineered by scientists in a lab using well documented genetic engineering vectors that leave behind a “fingerprint”

Controversial Paper co-authored by Zheng Li Shi Scientist in BSL-4 Virology Lab Wuhan in 2015 discussing bioengineered strain of SARS-like bat- coronavirus.

It just seems awfully suspect that they can test for the coronavirus as easily as they can already. Don't you think?


Last updated on Feb 3, 2020: Miles Guo identified the Chinese scientist “Deyin Guo” to be the person who created the Wuhan Coronavirus. Wang Quishan, the vice present of China, ordered this attack. Now the Chinese Communist Party is blaming the U.S. for creating Wuhan coronavirus. Please click on the link below to read the last news.

New conclusive evidence shows it did not start in the food market but was stolen from Canadian lab in July

Facts Check Verdict: Not verified

News Verification: Many people on social media shared the news, having doubts about the coronavirus manufactured near in a lab near Wuhan city. It is claimed that the newly named coronavirus, COVID-19 is that it is human-made; created in a lab as a bioweapon in China by the Chinese scientist Deyin Guo.

News originally created on gnews on 21 Jan 2020 claiming, “Breaking news: China will admit coronavirus coming from its P4 lab”. A series of other tweets by verified twitter handle also helped in spreading this information.

As of now, we have no much proof to verify the news posted by gnews

Another website yournews published the news on Feb 3, 2020, every virology lab in the world that has run a genomic analysis of the coronavirus now knows that the coronavirus was engineered by human scientists. The proof is in the virus itself: The tools for genetic insertion are still present as remnants in the genetic code. Since these unique gene sequences don’t occur by random chance, they’re proof that this virus was engineered by scientists in a lab.

Truth: There is no proof as of now to verify the claims made by these websites or individuals on Social Media. As per WHO data, an advanced team is currently in Beijing to prepare an international mission and to determine the questions the international team will want to learn more about: from characteristics of the virus to public health response China put in place to try to contain the virus.  The WHO is closely working with the Chinese government in order to curb this menace.

As per WHO, Increasing evidence demonstrates the link between the 2019-nCoV and other similar known coronaviruses (CoV) circulating in bats, and more specifically those of the Rhinolophus bat sub-species.

However, the route of transmission to humans at the start of this event remains unclear. Bats are rare in markets in China but hunted and sold directly to restaurants for food.

Both Chinese and external expert groups are working in trying to identify the animal source of this new virus. Identifying the animal source of the 2019-nCoV would help to ensure that there will be no further future similar outbreaks with the same virus and will also help to understand the initial spread of the disease in the Wuhan area.

Truth: Most of the pictures of the lab shared in the website are from a laboratory opened near Wuhan city nearly 5 years ago. The  Wuhan P4 lab meant China was one of just a handful of developed countries operating such facilities to help handle the most “virulent pathogens”.

As per zerohedge, The reported militarization of Wuhan's P4 Lab has raised new questions about the origin of the Covid-19 virus and the apparent cover-up that has occurred since it was first made public. According to the PLA Daily reportChen Wei holds the rank of major general, and along with reports that Chinese troops have started to "assist", it strongly suggests that the PLA has taken control of the situation.
