CORONAVIRUS MAY HAVE BEEN ACCIDENTALLY PRODUCED DURING VACCINE STUDY, ACCORDING TO RUSSIAN SCIENTIST
A Russian scientist named Peter Chumakov said the coronavirus may have been accidentally produced by Wuhan scientists. Chumakov, who said scientists had been working on coronavirus for at least 10 years, claimed the virus may have been 'accidentally' produced during vaccine studies.
The Coronavirus outbreak, which has emerged in Wuhan, China and turned into a pandemic, continues to negatively affect life. In total, 2 million 732 thousand 445 people infected with the virus has cost the lives of 191,962 people. Scientists continue to work on the vaccine and treatment methods for the virus, while they continue to do research on how the virus originated.
In recent years, both politicians and scientists have made numerous explanations about how coronavirus came about. Some people believe that the virus is transmitted from bats to humans, while others believe that it is deliberately produced by a particular group and left as a threat to humanity. Now a Russian scientist says the coronavirus may have been "accidentally" produced by Wuhan scientists.
Vladimir Putin's spokesman: No person can be accused of developing coronavirus
Prof. According to statements by Peter Chumakov, scientists in Wuhan have been working on several variants of coronavirus for more than 10 years. Chumakov suggests that scientists may very likely have caused the emergence of existing Sars-Cov-2 while working to develop vaccines against HIV or immunodeficiency viruses.
These claims, put forward by a scientist in Russia, have not escaped the attention of politicians. Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, said it was unacceptable to accuse any person of developing coronavirus. The allegations are unacceptable, Peskov said, adding that the available data is insufficient to determine the nature of the coronavirus.
Russian former Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova: it's not easy to detect if the virus is man-made
Some important statements were also made by Veronika Skvortsova, Russia's former Health Minister. Skvortsova stated that it is not easy to determine if a virus that could cause a pandemic is man-made, and that in order to make such a detection, very detailed and comprehensive studies should be done, stating that the disease is 94 percent of the same as acute respiratory syndrome, 6 percent of the differences contain, she said.
This statement, made by one of the scientists seen as important in Russia, is an indication that the issue has started to be discussed throughout Russia. When we look closely at the statements of the parties, it can be seen that both sides are right in their own way. But it is not possible, for now, to say which of these allegations is true.
