Isang 2008 Nobel Prize Recipient sa pag diskubre ng Human Immun0deficiency V1rus (-HIV-) ay tumimbang sa kontrobersiya ng pinagmulan ng c0ronavirus disease 2019 at iginiit na ito ay gawang laboratoryo.
Apat na araw bago si US President Donald Trump nagbigay ng banta sa bagong tariffs laban sa Beijing, claiming na mayroong ebidensiya na nag-uugnay sa c0vid-19 sa isang laboratoryo sa China’s ground zero city sa Wuhan.
Siya ay French Scientist Luc Montagnier na naka diskubre ng -HIV- na nagsasabing ang cov1d-19 ay isang creation ng eksperto.
Ayon pa sa ulat ng GMA News:
Interviewed on the CNews channel in France, Montagnier asserted that the v1rus had been designed by molecular biologists, stating that it contains genetic elements of H-I-V, and that its characteristics could not have arisen naturally.
Asked by the CNews interviewer what the goal of these molecular biologists could be, Montagnier said it wasn’t clear. “My job,” he said, “is to expose the facts.”
Montagnier said that “he didn’t know who had done it, or why,” but suggested that possibly the goal had been to make an A-I-D-S vaccine.”
But he said that the lab v1rus is “a professional job… a very meticulous job,” describing its genome as being a “clockwork of sequences.”
“There’s a part which is obviously the classic v1rus, and there’s another mainly coming from the bat, but that part has added sequences, particularly from H-I-V–the A-I-D-S v1rus,” he said.
Other experts, however, are not buying Montagnier’s explanation, with one even calling it “absurd.”
Virologist Etienne Simon-Lorière from the Pasteur Institute in Paris said suggesting that the v1rus was man-made because of the “small… pieces of genomes” in it that are anyway found in other viruses of the same family simply “does not make sense.”
Montagnier asserted that questions on the true origin of the v1rus would continue to be raised for a long time as the whole world has already spent trillions of dollars in the fight against the pandemic.
He inferred that the allegedly man-made v1rus, whose genome consists of a “clockwork of sequences” and includes elements of H-I-V, could not have been assembled by amateurs.
And questions about its origin and purpose would not escape scrutiny, and are unlikely to disappear soon.
