PublicNews18: Coronavirus Is there any evidence that the virus was removed from the laboratory?
The laboratory is located in the city where the first Coronavirus outbreak was reported.
US President Donald Trump says the US government is now reviewing anecdotal information that the virus spreads from a laboratory to the world.
What does this claim about the outbreak of the current Coronavirus epidemic mean?
The Washington Post published these sources after receiving diplomatic posts.
According to these posts, in 2018, US scientific diplomats were sent to China’s Research Laboratory for multiple inspections.
These scientists twice warned the United States that the laboratory lacked adequate safety measures.
According to news reports in the Washington Post, the American scientific diplomat in China was upset over the security and administrative weaknesses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) and requested further assistance.
According to the news, diplomats were worried that research on the virus spreading bats in this Chinese laboratory could pose a risk of a serous-like outbreak.
According to the US newspaper, after the diplomatic missions, the debate within the US government caught on whether Wuhan’s laboratory or any other laboratory in China was the cause of the outbreak.
In addition to the Washington Post, US TV channel Fox News also reported a news that reinforces the Corona virus’s reaction to launching a lab.
The outbreak came to an end late last year when some of the virus-infected patients were linked to a food market in Wuhan.
Despite widespread online speculation, there is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 caused by COW-19 was actually accidentally dispersed from a laboratory in China.
The laboratories that carry out research on viruses and bacteria, and the safety measures they implement, are called BSL, biosafety levels.
The laboratory consists of four levels of BSL depending on which biological agents are being investigated.
Biosafety Level 1 is the lowest level and laboratories are practiced while researching known types of biological agents that are in no way dangerous to humans.
Level 4 laboratories have research on the most dangerous pathogens, some of which contain only vaccines or treatments: the Ebola, Marburg virus and smallpox to the extent of Russia and US laboratories.
These standards are not implemented under any contract, but the BSL World Health Organization has published a manual.
Workers at the lab want to protect themselves or their community from being infected with these viruses, Dr. Philipa says, and best practices have been introduced to prevent accidental emissions of those viruses.
According to them if you are working on a project with partners globally, then in the laboratory you have to ensure the application of relevant standards.
In fact, in addition to help from US investigative agencies, the Chinese research firm, Wuhan, in Wuhan, is receiving US funding.
The short answer is that what is published in the Washington Post does not tell us what was wrong with Wuhan’s laboratory security system.
However, there is usually some information about the mistakes that labs can make when researching microbes.
According to Dr. Philippe, who has access to the lab, the training of scientists and technicians, record keeping procedures, list of microbes, accident reporting procedures and emergency procedures.
Accidents happen. In 2014, in a research center near Washington, small boxes of smallpox were found in cardboard boxes, which were mistakenly left in the containers. In 2015, the US military accidentally sent samples of live anthrax to nine laboratories nationwide, including a South Korean military base.
In large numbers of research laboratories have different safety systems.
Laboratories made in accordance with BSL-IV are very strict arrangements because they work on extremely dangerous microbes. Wikipedia lists 50 such laboratories, including the WHI located in Wuhan, but no final list of such laboratories is available.
The BSL-4 lab works on hazardous microbes and has to ensure optimal safety. For this reason, lacking in any of these lab safety measures is very important.
