It has been revealed that the European Union financed the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) of tens of thousands of euros the last six years.
The European Commission is set to send over £122,000 to the Chinese laboratory which foreign and British intelligence agencies say it is “feasible” the WIV created the global pandemic following a leak.
British Professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen have said that the lab had manipulated the virus and then tried to cover it up.
Both scientists have said that is it is “beyond reasonable doubt” Chinese scientists created Covid through “laboratory manipulation” which has “no credible natural ancestor.”
Romanian MEP Cristian Terhes has demanded that the European Commission disclose exactly what research they have funded with the WIV.
Tehres said, “The European Commission must disclose in detail what research they financed at the Chinese labs in Wuhan and why?
“Such clarification to the European taxpayers is imperative especially after President Biden as well as multiple researchers have credibly raised the possibility that the Covid-19 virus was man-made and leaked, intentionally or not, from the Wuhan labs.”
It has been reported that the EU spent around £34,000 on projects at the Wuhan lab between April 2015 and July 2020, which also includes helping to produce PCR tests.
The EU Commissioner Mary Gabriel, she said in response, “As the project has not yet delivered its final report, the total amount claimed by Wuhan Institute of Virology under this grant is not known yet.
“WIV delivered the first SARS-Cov2 genome sequence, which enabled partners of the European Virus Archive to design the widely used polymerase chain reaction (PCR) diagnostic test for COVID-19.”
The EU Commissioner added, “Payments are made only if the costs claimed by the beneficiary can be accepted. Constant monitoring is ensured until the end of any project.
“In addition, even after the end of the project, the Commission may check its proper implementation and compliance with the obligations laid down in the grant agreement.”
A Taiwanese scientist and a Chinese microbiologists have also said Covid was probably at WIV.
Based on the virus unusual structure it is most likely “man made” and there is a theory coronavirus was somehow leaked or released from the Institute of Virology in Wuhan China, said Professor Fang Chi-tai from the National Taiwan University (NTU).
Professor Fang echoed Professor Angus Dalgleish’s claims and said, “The mutations found in the novel coronavirus are unusual in an academic sense.
“From an academic point of view, it is indeed possible that the amino acids were added to COVID-19 in the lab by humans.”
Biologists Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao published a pre-print entitled “The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.”
The report describes how “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.
“We noted two laboratories conducting research on bat coronavirus in Wuhan, one of which was only 280 metres from the seafood market.
“We briefly examined the histories of the laboratories and proposed that the coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory.
“Our proposal provided an alternative origin of the coronavirus in addition to natural recombination and intermediate host.”
The scientists in Wuhan said, “In summary, somebody was entangled with the evolution of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.
