In 2015, Chinese scientists discussed weaponising coronavirus: report

May 10, 2021 06:57 IST | By Editorji News Desk

A new document has come to light that has revealed that Chinese military scientists were discussing the weaponisation of SARS coronaviruses five years before the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Weekend Australian has reported that a document written by Chinese scientists and health officials before the pandemic in 2015 states that SARS coronaviruses were a "new era of genetic weapons". it added that the coronavirus that could be "artificially manipulated into an emerging human disease virus, then weaponised and unleashed".

The paper titled "The Unnatural Origin of SARS and New Species of Man-Made Viruses as Genetic Bioweapons" suggested that World War Three would be fought with biological weapons.

Peter Jennings, the executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), told news.com.au that the document is as close to a "smoking gun" as we've got.
