Scientist who worked at Wuhan lab says COVID virus was man-made

A scientist working at a controversial research lab in China has claimed COVID is a man-made virus that leaked from the facility, according to a report.

Andrew Huff said COVID leaked from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology two years ago, blaming authorities for the “biggest US intelligence failure since 9/11,” Britain’s The Sun reported on Saturday.

The lab has been the focus of heated debates about the origins of COVID, with both Chinese government officials and lab staff denying the virus leaked from the facility.

Huff, an epidemiologist said in his new book: The truth about Wuhanthat the pandemic was the result of US government funding of coronaviruses in China.

He said China’s gain-of-function experiments conducted with lax safety precautions led to a lab leak at the Wuhan lab.

“Foreign laboratories did not have the proper control measures in place to ensure proper biosecurity, biosecurity and risk management, which ultimately led to the laboratory leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” he said in his book, published exclusively in the newspaper.

“Foreign laboratories did not have the appropriate control measures in place to ensure adequate biosecurity, biosecurity and risk management…” wrote Dr. Huff in his book.


Over the past two years, mounting evidence has suggested the virus was man-made.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology, a state-run and funded research facility that houses China’s riskiest coronavirus research, has been under immense pressure from the ruling Chinese Communist Party to make scientific breakthroughs to improve China’s global status despite lacking resources, according to one recent research published by ProPublica/Vanity Fair.
