Reported Footage from 2017 Proves That Bats Were Kept in Wuhan Lab, Came Into Close Contact with Scientists

A new report says the bats were placed inside the Wuhan Institute of Virology many years before the 2019 coronavirus outbreak.

Chinese officials have claimed that the virus – in some unexplained fashion – has jumped from one infected bats to the one that infected the people. Its initial explanation claimed that the delivery took place at a Wuhan market where unusual animals were sold for food.

However, despite the early rejection of any possible connection, attention was increasingly focused on Wuhan lab as the source of the outbreak.

A new report from Sky News Australia along with what it said was a video by the Chinese Academy of Science from May 2017 documenting the presence of live bats at the institute of virology.

The video outlines the security precautions that are in place if “an accident” occurs and notes that it includes interviewing scientists “in the midst of one of the greatest hideouts the world has ever seen.”

The report quoted the zoologist Peter Daszak, a member of the World Health Organization team that investigated the origin of the pandemic while walking back an initial claim that it was some sort of conspiracy to suggest that bats were there.

“We didn’t ask them if they had bats,” he said.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if, like a lot of other virology labs, they’re trying to set up a bat colony. I know it’s happening in labs here and in other countries,” he said in the report.

A report on New York Post Lab workers are said to have complained in 2017 of being bitten by bats during research.

Also, a report by Business Insider noted a contradiction in what China says about and bat.

The report said that a video in December 2019 made in China boasted researchers at China’s Disease Control center collecting virus samples from bats. China’s CDC lab is also located in Wuhan.

However, the report also noted that when the WHO went to investigate the cause of the pandemic, the lab said it never stored bat viruses.

David Relman, a Stanford University microbiologist, said experts do not have access to the information they need to ascertain about the source of the virus, according to The Washington Post.

“We can’t even start talking about an agreement other than an agreement that we don’t know about,” he said. “We have nothing like the amount of data we need.”

“Any lab that handles a significant number of samples from bats or other potential coronavirus host species, or performs coronavirus engineering” should be considered as a potential resource, he said.
