Last week, the US President agreed to Fox News report regarding COVID-19. The report said that COVID-19 was leaked by an intern of Wuhan Institute of Virology in China by mistake.
Based on anonymous sources, the Fox News claimed the above. Though the virus is naturally occuring strain among bats and not bioweapon, it was being studied in Wuhan laboratory.
The virus was first transmitted from bat to human. The “patient zero” worked at the laboratory. The virus first affected the lab employee before the latter could spread the disease among the common people outside the Wuhan city, according to Fox News.
The news platform further claimed that the Wuhan wet market never really sold bats. It was a setup established by China to shift the blame from the laboratory.
The virus was being studied in the lab as an attempt by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to “demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States,” Fox News reported citing multiple unnamed sources.
