Ground Report | New Delhi: An American intelligence report claimed that three researchers from the Wuhan Lab fell ill about a month before the corona epidemic spread to the world. US newspaper Wall Street Journal news reported, According to the three researchers of Wuhan Institute of Virology fell ill in November 2019 and they had to seek the help of the hospital.
This intelligence report contains detailed information related to the number of sick researchers of Wuhan Lab, the time of their fall and going to the hospital.
It is expected that the information in the intelligence report will emphasize the investigation into the claim that the coronary virus has been suspected to have spread from Wuhan Lab.
The report came a day before the World Health Organization meeting in which the WHO is expected to discuss the next phase of investigation regarding the origin of the corona virus.
Current and former officials familiar with the intelligence about the lab researchers expressed differing views about the strength of the supporting evidence for the assessment. One person said that it was provided by an international partner and was potentially significant but still in need of further investigation and additional corroboration.
Another person described the intelligence as stronger. “The information that we had coming from the various sources was of exquisite quality. It was very precise. What it didn’t tell you was exactly why they got sick,” he said, referring to the researchers.
A US Security Council spokeswoman did not comment on the Wall Street Journal news, but said the Biden administration was ‘serious about investigating the origin of the corona virus.’
Earlier, a team of the World Health Organization went to Wuhan to find out the facts related to the epidemic. However, WHO then said that there is not enough facts to prove that the corona virus spread from Wuhan’s lab to the world. Former US President Donald Trump called Corona virus as ‘Chinese virus’ and ‘Wuhan virus’ and China had expressed strong objection to this.
China has also been accused of not giving full support to the World Health Organization team in the investigation and hiding information related to the Wuhan lab.
