Biotechnology, synthetic viruses at the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic?

<b>Biotechnology, synthetic viruses at the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic?</b>Genetically modified viruses are created by using biotechnology to delete, insert, alter or edit parts of viral genomes. These engineered viruses can then have the ability to infect other host cells.
That's how a virus from bats can be modified to be capable of infecting humans. The SARS-COV2 virus appears to be a recombinant of a number of previously known different other viruses. It apparently has HIV and MERS components. In 2002, American researchers created the first known synthetic virus from scratch using the genome sequence for polio. The lab-built poliovirus killed mice and was almost indistinguishable from the original. Scientists in Switzerland have recently created a synthetic SARS-COV2 virus in a high-security laboratory in Bern in just a week using yeast, a published genome, and mail-order DNA. Did the Wuhan Institute of Virology P4 laboratory also carry out such manipulations? We don't know. But the Chinese government's initial cover-up and censoring of information related to the Wuhan coronavirus that has now caused a global pandemic of apocalyptic magnitude is suspicious. A 34-years-old Chinese doctor, Li Wenliang, was punished along with 7 other physicians by the Chinese government for publicly discussing the emergence of a SARS-like disease in Wuhan on social media. Li shared the warning with his colleagues on Chinese social media app WeChat on 30 December 2019. He became a whistleblower when his warnings were later shared publicly. Li died on February 7, 2020 of the virus he tried to warn the public about. Another Chinese scientist, virologist Shi Zhengli, who is the director of the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, is alleged to have successfully spliced the SARS-CoV2 virus. This could have been the key for the virus to potentially become capable of entering the human body. Shi Zhengli's special field of research revolves around SARS-like coronaviruses of bat origin. Shi Zhengli is reportedly the co-owner in China of the patent for the therapy that combines the antiviral remdesivir and chloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19. Remdesivir is currently being used to treat severe cases of COVID-19 in some countries. The drug is not yet licensed or approved anywhere in the world and has not yet been proven to be safe or effective for the treatment of COVID-19.

This should be no excuse for Trump's blundering and incompetence in the handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Investigative reporter Joshua Philipp explores the known facts surrounding the Wuhan coronavirus that causes the deadly COVID-19 pneumonia. In his investigation, Philipp explores scientific data, interviews top scientists and national security experts. And while the mystery around the origin of the virus remains, much is learned about the Chinese Communist Party's initial secrecy about the pandemic and the ensuing cover-up.
