British intelligence suggests that the coronavirus may be of laboratory origin. However, this version needs to be checked according to The Sunday Times, citing sources in the British intelligence services.
It is noted that the intelligence of the United Kingdom took a fresh look at the data of scientists, after which they admitted that the version of the creation of the SARS-Cov-2 virus by Chinese virologists in Wuhan is plausible.
Note that this week, US President Joe Biden called on intelligence officials to "redouble" efforts to investigate the origins of Covid-19, including the theory of a virus leak from a laboratory in China.
The US president claims that opinions are divided in the US intelligence community: some believe that the pandemic was the result of an accident in a laboratory, others that the virus appeared as a result of human contact with an infected animal. Biden asked both groups to present their arguments within 90 days.
In turn, China has warned against politicizing the investigation into the origin of the virus.
