A former boss of the UK intelligence agency MI6 told The Telegraph he believes the Coronavirus was engineered and escaped from a lab in Wuhan.
“I do think that this started as an accident,” Sir Richard Dearlove told the Telegraph, citing a peer-reviewed paper by Professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital at the University of London, and the Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen.
The authors say hey believe the virus has been engineered to bind to humans.
“We are aware that these findings could have political significance and raise troubling questions.”
Dearlove added: “[A]s this debate about the virus develops, I think all this material is going to be in print and is going to embarrass a number of people, I think. Let’s suggest that the Chinese maybe have too much say in their journals, in what appears and what doesn’t.”
He added: “Look, the Chinese understand us extremely well. They have made a study of us over the last decade or longer, particularly through attending our universities. We understand the Chinese very poorly. It’s an imbalanced relationship in that respect.”
