Unearthed post from a now-deleted 2018 tweet from China Daily shows that “China’s Wuhan Lab preserves more than 1,500 different strains of virus”
Earlier today, tech investor and co-founder of startup accelerator Y Combinator Paul Graham, tweeted the following: “Now that a lab leak is becoming the default explanation for the origin of Covid-19, we owe thanks to Alina Chan, who spoke out about this possibility when it was very costly for someone in her position to do so.” For whatever reason, the post was later deleted on Twitter in just about an hour.
For over a year now, anyone who questioned the origin of the coronavirus has been censored or de-platformed on major social platforms. So, the deletion of Graham’s tweet should not come as a surprise for those who have following the news, which brings us to the next story.
While everybody is worried about one virus potentially escaping from the Wuhan Lab, we probably should be worried about more than 1,500 different strains of virus,” which if true according to the China Daily post, will be more disastrous than coronavirus.
While the debate still rages on about the possibility of coronavirus starting from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, it turned out that a newspaper owned by the Communist Party of China deleted a tweet bragging about the Wuhan Lab preserving massive bank of viruses.
Pictures taken from inside the Wuhan Lab show a broken seal on the door of a refrigerator used to hold 1,500 different strains of the virus. The pictures were first released by state-owned China Daily in 2018 and were published on Twitter on 28th March, before the newspaper deleted the tweet.
On May 29, 2018, (two years before the coronavirus pandemic), China Daily boasted of the Wuhan facility’s massive virus bank saying:
“Take a look at the largest #virus bank in Asia,” the paper wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “Wuhan Institute of Virology in Central China’s Hubei province preserves more than 1,500 different strains of virus.”
