In a shocking revelation some documents obtained by the US State Department link coronaviruses with China.

The details point out how Chinese scientists investigated weaponising coronaviruses five years even before the COVID-19 pandemic.

And they may have also predicted World War III using biological weapons. ‘The Sun’ newspaper in the UK, quotes reports first released by ‘The Australian’. Calling them ‘bombshell documents’ obtained by the US State Department show the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) commanders making this prediction.

Origins of Coronaviruses in China

As per reports, US officials obtained these papers written by military scientists and senior Chinese public health officials in 2015. This was a part of their own investigation into the origins of COVID-19.

China’s scientists call these SARS coronaviruses. COVID of them all presents a ‘new era of genetic weapons’. These papers fantasise the idea of a bioweapon attack that could cause the ‘enemy’s medical system to collapse’.

Moreover, it references work by US Air Force colonel Michael J. Ainscough. He was the one who predicted World War III may be fought with bioweapons.

These papers boast about how these viruses could be ‘artificially manipulated into an emerging human disease virus. They can then be weaponised and unleashed in a way never seen before.

The document also lists some of China’s top public health figures among the authors.

Although most scientists have said that there is no evidence that COVID-19 is manmade. But questions remain whether it may have escaped from a bio lab in Wuhan or not?

As China has been carrying out high risk gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).

Furthermore, so far, there is no evidence to suggest that China is behind the release of the coronaviruses. Therefore, more probe remains to clear the air on this.

Also, China’s state-run Global Times newspaper slamming The Australian for publishing the article to smear China calls it a deliberate smear campaign against the country.

But China has a long history of mooting over using bioweapons which still remain shrouded in mystery.
