I’ve been seeing a lot of the same story being told by various media outlets. All pushing the same narrative, “scientists confirm Covid–19 is not a man–made bioweapon”. It’s only fair that I show the other side of the argument.
There is a scientist that says covid-19 is man made and was released from Wuhan lab. The story was first published on March 2. 2020.
A Taiwanese scientist has claimed Chinese microbiologists probably created coronavirus in Wuhan, China.
Based on the virus unusual structure it is most likely “man made” and there is a theory coronavirus was somehow leaked or released from the Institute of Virology in Wuhan China, said Professor Fang Chi-tai from the National Taiwan University (NTU).
Professor Fang said China’s track record with safety standards and laboratory management has been questioned in the past.
The Professor claims it was very possible that the Wuhan Chinese scientists created the deadly virus by simply adding four amino acids to an existing bat virus, which therefore makes it much easier to transmit to people.
Professor Fang added, “The mutations found in the novel coronavirus are unusual in an academic sense.
“It is indeed possible that it is a man-made product.
“From an academic point of view, it is indeed possible that the amino acids were added to COVID-19 in the lab by humans.”
I should point out that Wuhan has the Wuhan Institute of Virology. It’s a level 4 laboratory that was used to store, handle and research samples of SARS, Ebola and other deadly infectious viruses. Fang mentioned the possibility of the virus being leaked from there due to gross mismanagement. Fang also said,
Analyses of the Covid-19 virus have shown that it had a 96% genetic similarity with an RaTG13 bat virus also stored at the institute, and that the Covid-19 could be “manufactured” by modifying the RaTG13 virus.
French researchers had discovered four more amino acids in the gene sequence of Covid-19 than other known coronaviruses, which could be added artificially to make the viral transmission easier.
The following was also mentioned,
In February Chinese scientist announced the true cause of the spread of coronavirus, who broke cover and said the oubreak started in a science laboratory in Wuhan yards away from a wet market.
A scientist told how a sick bat attacked the researchers and bled on them and urinated on another, they were then forced to quarantine themselves for 14 days.
Biologists Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao published a pre-print entitled “The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.”
The report describes how “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.
“We noted two laboratories conducting research on bat coronavirus in Wuhan, one of which was only 280 metres from the seafood market.
“We briefly examined the histories of the laboratories and proposed that the coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory.
Evidence for RNA editing in the transcriptome of 2019 Novel Coronavirus
For additional evidence of human influence in the Coronavirus, I’ve provided a link to a PDF file titled “Evidence for RNA editing in the transcriptome of 2019 Novel Coronavirus”.
It comes from bioRxiv. You won’t hear anything about this in main stream news. I’ve seen 1 article and it was an attempt to debunk the discovery by accusing the scientists of running a “shabby operation”. Still, the critic never said the discovery was inaccurate.
The 2019-nCoV outbreak has become a global health risk. Editing by host deaminases is an innate
15 restriction process to counter viruses, and it is not yet known whether it operates against
coronaviruses. Here we analyze RNA sequences from bronchoalveolar lavage fluids derived from
two Wuhan patients. We identify nucleotide changes that may be signatures of RNA editing:
Adenosine-to-Inosine changes from ADAR deaminases and Cytosine-to-Uracil changes from
APOBEC ones. A mutational analysis of genomes from different strains of human-hosted
Coronaviridae reveals patterns similar to the RNA editing pattern observed in the 2019-nCoV
transcriptomes. Our results suggest that both APOBECs and ADARs are involved in Coronavirus
genome editing, a process that may shape the fate of both virus and patient.
The scientist behind this discovery are Salvatore Di Giorgio, Filippo Martignano, Maria Gabriella Torcia, Giorgio Mattiuz, Silvestro G. Conticello.

Anyone wanting to jump deeper into the rabbit hole can click the link below. It’s a link to one of my personal research archives. The document is titled “Patents filed that mentions “coronavirus” before year 2000. It contains links to at least 200 patents where the coronavirus is mentioned. Also included are patent owner, affiliations and all relevant information. All filed before the year 2000. Too much to post here at FOTM. (It’s just an archive.
