China ordered scientists to destroy coronavirus samples at the start of the COVID-19, according to a secret memo that has just been uncovered.

The Beijing government instructed the handing over of the lab samples on January 3, 2020, in an apparent effort to cover up the initial outbreak of the virus, reports The Daily Express US.

The order came just two days before Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market – a wet market connected to multiple early cases of COVID-19 – was shut down. Its closure was the first public warning of the spreading virus.

The secret report revealed that the Chinese government also banned labs from sharing viral samples or publishing information without its permission.

Non-profit public health research and journalism group US Right to Know (USRTK) uncovered the report through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department.

After the group translated the report, they discovered that it reads: “No institution or individual may release any relevant information to the outside world without authorization.”

It adds: “Opinions that have not been scientifically verified and reviewed must not be publicly disseminated to the public.”

Since the outbreak of Covid, many scientists and intelligence officials have accused the Chinese government of manipulating Covid research, and this report could back up these claims.

This theory that the virus may have leaked from a Wuhan lab now seems significantly more plausible.

Tracing the origins of SARS-CoV-2 relied on inspection of early viral sequences, scientists say. Yet this research was thwarted by the government’s clamp down on the sharing of data and the reported destruction of samples.

Virginie Courtier-Orgogozo, an evolutionary biologist at the French National Center for Scientific Research, said: “Having access to additional sequences from the early days would greatly help researchers to infer what happened in Wuhan in 2019 and to distinguish between the different scenarios.”

Of the 100-plus individuals with symptoms that were sampled in December 2019, only 20 genome sequences from these patients have been made available to international researchers, she added.

But, China and the Wuhan Institute of Virology have denied all allegations. The most widely accepted explanation for the outbreak was the virus originated from a natural, zoonotic transmission – an explanation at least four Government agencies have pushed.

But Matt Ridley, co-author of Viral, told The Daily Express US: The Search for the Origin of Covid-19, said that he is more convinced by the explanation that the virus came from a Chinese laboratory – the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV)

The Chinese regime is still withholding the “identity and characteristics of the first cases and the dates”, he revealed.

Ridley said: “Who were the first cases? Where did they live? What were their professions? Were they scientists or people working in the market? That kind of information undoubtedly exists and has not been shared.”
