Special services analyze information about the work of the laboratory of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. It is not known where the data got to the American side. According to sources, American specialists could hack servers related to research in Wuhan. The sources added that the United States now has data on 22 thousand viruses.
Genetic information requires a detailed study and analysis, based on which it will be possible to conclude. American intelligence agencies have already begun such work with the help of supercomputers in the laboratories of the Ministry of Energy, journalists report.
The “decoding” of the materials is complicated because the accompanying notes to the scientific papers are left in Chinese. Therefore, the United States should find not only specialists who are familiar with the specifics and language but also those who can be trusted. The TV channel added that the completion dates have not yet been approved.
In the United States, the opinion about the laboratory origin of SARS-CoV-2 has been repeatedly expressed. This possibility is not excluded by representatives of the CIA and senior officials in the administration of President Joe Biden, including the president’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan.
At the same time, the Chinese side denies such assumptions. In particular, representatives of the Wuhan Institute of Virology indicate that until December 31, 2019, the institution did not study the virus and did not encounter it.
