Suspicion has grown that there could have been an “hazardous event” in October at the Chinese, Wuhan Institute of Virology.
The Wuhan Institute is were it is strongly suspected the coronavirus pandemic started from after a leak at the high security laboratory.
NBC in London obtained an intelligence report who examined mobile phone data from Wuhan, and analysts claim there was no phone data between 7 and 24 October from the lab.
Prior to these dates there was a normal frequency of calls from employees at the Wuhan lab.
Authors of the new report claim this could have been when the “hazardous event” took place, between 6 and 11 October at the Wuhan Institute.
Security and intelligence personnel are remaining cautious over the reliability of the report, saying there could be other factors in play over the levels of phone usage around those dates.
It has also been strongly believed by scientific experts and intelligence officials around the world that coronavirus outbreak happened long before the first known case on 31 December 2019.
The 24-page report “supports the release of Covid-19 at the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” which started in October of 2019.
The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last week that there was “enormous evidence” the virus originated from the Wuhan lab.
Pompeo further said this was not the first time that Chinese lab failures had allowed a deadly virus to escape.
He told ABC news, “There’s enormous evidence that that’s where this began.
“We’ve said from the beginning that this was a virus that originated in Wuhan, China.
“We took a lot of grief for that from the outset.
“But I think the whole world can see now. Remember, China has a history of infecting the world, and they have a history of running substandard laboratories.”
Adding, “These are not the first times that we’ve had a world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab.”
British and French scientists also have evidence that the pandemic started in October as those who took part in the Military World Games came down with the virus that month.
A suggestion has been put forward that this could have also helped transmit the virus around the world, as French scientists discovered last week an infected swab dating back to December 2019.
Scientists at University College London and the University of Reunion Islands who have analysed 7,000 genome sequences since January.
Their research examined mutations and now believe coronavirus jumped from the original host to humans between 6 October 11 December 2019.
