Virologist refutes claims of coronavirus leak from lab

Shi Zhengli, one of the leading virologists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, denied reports of a suspected coronavirus leak from the institute’s laboratory and said there was no evidence of this.

The Chinese city of Wuhan became the epicenter of the spread of the coronavirus last year.

Shi Zhengli, in a conversation with journalists of The New York Times, answered with a clear “no” to the question about the presence of a source of a new coronavirus in the laboratory before the outbreak of the pandemic, the newspaper writes. She called such suspicions unfounded.

“How can I provide evidence about something when there is no evidence‚Ķ I do not know how the world came to this, constantly pouring dirt on innocent scientists,” the virologist told the newspaper, commenting on reports about the coronavirus in a laboratory in Wuhan.
