[국제]British and Norwegian scientists say Corona 19 virus is manufactured in Chinese lab

“Discovery of artificial organic compound structures in virus spikes”
“Positive charge bands found arranged in a single row of four amino acids”
“An array that can only appear artificially created”
“Chinese research institutes study how to enhance the contagious power of naturally occurring viruses”

A paper has been published in the US media by two British and Norwegian scientists claiming that the virus was artificially created in a laboratory in Wuhan, China, amid a sharp war between the US and China over the origin of the coronavirus.

British intelligence agencies are also said to be investigating the origin of the coronavirus at a Wuhan laboratory.

Angus Dalglish, a professor at St George’s University School of Medicine in the UK, and Dr Birger Sørensen, a Norwegian virologist, have argued that the chance that the coronavirus occurred naturally is very low.

The Daily Mail in the UK and Fox News in the US obtained and reported the 22-page paper they wrote.

In the paper, they cited three reasons as to the fact that the COVID-19 virus was artificially created.

The first is that organic compound structures that cannot occur naturally were found in the spike of the Corona 19 virus, which is known to play an important role in human penetration.

An arrangement of four positively charged amino acids in a spike has been found, which is physically impossible.

They explained that this arrangement can only appear artificially, saying that this amino acid makes it stick like a magnet to negatively charged human cells.

Second, he pointed out that unique fingerprints were found indicating that the COVID-19 virus did not originate in nature.

Finally, it was based on the fact that a Chinese research institute had studied how to enhance the contagiousness of a naturally occurring virus.

They have been making this claim since last year, but they said that they were ignored by academia, and they plan to publish a paper in an international journal.

As US President Joe Biden recently ordered intelligence agencies to report back within 90 days, saying the origins of COVID-19 are mixed, attention is being paid to the impact these scientists’ papers will have.

Meanwhile, Britain’s The Times reported that British intelligence agencies are currently investigating the origin of the coronavirus at a Wuhan laboratory.
