NEW DELHI, India, 30 November 2020

Chinese researchers have now claimed that Wuhan virus originated in India with a Chinese study hinting that the human-to-human transmission may have started in India months before the outbreak in Wuhan.

The research said that the outbreak may have happened in India in July-August 2019 when an unbearable heatwave in May-June that year forced animals and humans to share the same water sources.

“All countries need to devote efforts into tracking the virus origin because multiple theories are backing the idea that novel coronavirus may have existed in multiple places before being spotted in Wuhan, Global Times quoted the Chinese experts as saying.

The expert further said that the international community “should stop politicizing the scientific topic or blaming each other.”

According to a report by ET, various state-run Chinese media outlets have been carrying reports that a number of imported food products from different countries, including a consignment of fish from India, had traces of the COVID-19.

It is highly likely that China is spreading this propaganda alleging that the virus may have entered the country from foreign nations.

There is consensus in the international community that the deadly virus originated in Chinese “wet markets” where live games were sold.

A 55-year old man from the Hubei province whose identity remains unknown was believed to be the first patient of the deadly virus. This case was reported on 21 December.

In January this year, scientists from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that the deadly outbreak began at Hunan Seafood Wholesale Market.

However, later, the Chinese regime rejected the Hunan market origin theory and also arrested and punished whistleblowers for raising alarm on the COVID-19 outbreak.

In April, Wuhan revised confirmed cases and deaths of the novel coronavirus disease admitting that many cases were “mistakenly reported” or missed entirely.

The total number of confirmed cases as of the end of 16 April was revised to 50,333 from 325 and the number of fatalities up to 3,869 from 1,290.
