Piers Morgan says China should be punished for mass MANSLAUGHTER if Covid leaked from Wuhan lab as Trump said

PIERS Morgan has called for China to be punished for mass manslaughter if the lab leak theory proves to be true.

The TV firebrand has hit out amid growing suspicions that Wuhan Institute of Virology engineered the virus to be more deadly before it escaped and globally killed millions of people.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Covid-19 has infected 172,457,078 and killed 3,707,631 people worldwide.

Last week, a bombshell study claimed Chinese scientists created Covid-19 in the lab before orchestrating an elaborate cover-up when it leaked out.

The report alleges that China then reverse-engineered versions of the disease to make it seem like it was naturally sourced from bats.

In light of this, Piers asked in his column for the Daily Mail whether Donald Trump right all along about a Covid-19 leak and cover-up?

It comes as:

Piers said “very uncomfortable questions now gathering ferocious momentum” after President Joe Biden ordered a new 90-day investigation into the outbreak to “redouble their efforts” in determining the truth.

He said: “This is potentially shaping up to be the biggest scandal and mass manslaughter case in modern history.

“If China knew the virus erupted from one of its labs, either accidentally or nefariously, and then covered it up to the world, how should it be punished?”

Beijing’s credibility in this crisis, he said, was already severely damaged from the start because of its refusal to be transparent.

He said: “Since then, Chinese officials have continued to spread disinformation in a desperate effort to avoid blame, even suggesting that Covid-19 could have started in myriad other countries from Italy and India to the US or arrived in China via frozen food.”

And if the lab virus engineering and lab leak theory proved true, Piers asked, where would it leave the reputation of top White House virus expert Dr Anthony Fauci?

He said Dr Fauci has dismissed the theory while having “potentially conflicting ties to China’s top scientists and the very lab under suspicion”.

What do we know about the Wuhan Institute of Virology?

THE WUHAN Institute of Virology is the highest security lab of its kind in all of China – and can be found right at the heart of the origins of the global pandemic.

Various theories have been swirling about the lab, which is headed up by Chinese scientist Dr Shi Zhengli, known as “Bat Woman”.

Most scientists do not believe the virus leaked from the lab, and the lab itself has categorically denied the claims.

The lab specialised in bat-borne viruses and had been carrying out experiences on them since 2015.

Airlocks, full body suits, and chemical showers are required before entering and leaving the lab – the first in China to be accredited with biosafety level 4 (BSL-4).

BSL-4 labs are the only places in the world where scientists can study diseases that have no cure.

Scientists from the lab even tested mysterious 

virus which killed three miners 1,000 miles away in Yunnan province back in 2012.

It has been suggested this fatal mystery bug may have been the true origin of Covid-19.

Experts at the lab also engineered a new type of hybrid ‘super-virus’ that can infect humans in 2015, according to medical journal Nature Medicine

Despite fears surrounding the research, the study was designed to show the risk of viruses carried by bats which could be transmitted to humans.

There is no suggestion the facility’s 2015 work is linked to the pandemic.

The lab was also recruiting new scientists to probe coronaviruses in bats just seven days before the outbreak.

China has began tightening security around its biolabs with President Xi Jinping saying it was a “national security” issue to improve scientific safety at a meeting last February.

The announcement of the US into the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic was criticised by China, with foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian saying that the US does not care about “facts or truth”.

An editorial published by Communist Party-run Global Times claimed the American government is “full of arrogance”, blasting the theory that the pandemic began following a lab leak in Wuhan.

The article also accused the American government of “playing political games to hijack science” by demanding that the WHO should “serve the political interests of the US”.

British intelligence are said to be recruiting Chinese whistleblowers on the dark web over fears Covid leaked from the Wuhan lab.Experts have reportedly assessed the theory and upgraded its likeliness from “remote” to “feasible”, according to The Sunday Times.
