    Chinese arrogance, believing they could contain an study some of the most deadly pathogens known to man, may be responsible for this extremely deadly outbreak.


    "Scientists warned in 2017 that a SARS-like virus could escape a lab set up that year in Wuhan, China, to study some of the most dangerous pathogens in the world.

    Now, a SARS-like coronavirus has infected more than 800 there, spread to at least 10 other countries and killed 25 in Wuhan and nearby provinces.

    China installed the first of a planned five to seven biolabs designed for maximum safety in Wuhan in 2017, for the purpose of studying the most high-risk pathogens, including the
    Ebola and the SARS viruses."


    "The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory is the only lab in China designated for studying dangerous pathogens like SARS and Ebola

    Ahead of its January 2018 opening, biosafety experts and scientists from the US expressed concerns that a virus could escape the lab...But a 2017 article warned of the unpredictability of lab animals that scientists at the Wuhan lab intended to inject with viruses

    Experts say the coronavirus that's infected more than 800 people mutated in animals and became capable of infecting humans at the Wuhan seafood market"

    In 2004, a SARS virus 'leaked' from a lab in Beijing

    'After a laboratory leak incident of SARS in 2004, the former Ministry of Health of China initiated the construction of preservation laboratories for high-level pathogens such as SARS, coronavirus, and pandemic influenza virus,' wrote Guizhen Wu."

    The Chinese thought they could contain the world's deadliest pathogens in these 'preservation laboratories' - They were WRONG.

    'It's not clear what or where those labs were'....but 'The Wuhan lab is also equipped for animal research.'
