Coronavirus may have originated in lab linked to China’s biowarfare program

Bill Gertz, Washington Times: The deadly animal-borne coronavirus spreading globally may have originated in a laboratory in the city of Wuhan linked to China’s covert biological weapons program, said an Israeli biological warfare analyst.

Dany Shoham, a former Israeli military intelligence officer who has studied Chinese biological warfare, said the institute is linked to Beijing’s covert bio-weapons program. It is not known whether the institute’s coronaviruses are specifically included in China’s biological weapons program but it is possible, he said.
