Before reading any of the below, anyone who rushes into the head mask, buys a month long lasting food, obtains a firearm against the zombies without carrying a gun, and is now taking five milligrams of Vitamin C is important to understand: some parts of it can be factually justified, and although they may sometimes prove to be partially true, they are often the result of human imagination.
Wuhani Super Lab released the virus?
There is a virus research lab in Wuhan (National Biosafety Laboratory) where you can experiment with some of the world's most dangerous (usually deadly) viruses, a fact. For what there is no tangible evidence, but in conspiracy theories, it is almost a basic assumption that the coronavirus is not released from a local market, but is, in fact, boldly believed to be a biological weapon. But what do we know about the laboratory and the conditions here?
In mainland China, five to seven new BSL-4 biological labs (which are also capable of storing and researching deadly viruses) were planned for 2025 two years ago, two of which were previously located in Tajani. The announcement also concerned the political and scientific world, as the existence of such labs is in itself a “status symbol”, and there have been voices that China must be planning to produce biological weapons in them.
Although the Beijing BSL-4 lab is the headquarters of the network, Wuhan was the first in the construction plan and was earmarked for about $ 44 million (300 million yuan). The lab was built in a flood protected area to withstand a magnitude 7 earthquake, according to the Richter Scale, although none of this area is a natural phenomenon. The Wuhan Laboratory was created with the help of French professionals, who have more experience in setting up such laboratories.
The lab's goal is to research, store, and develop new viruses, a reference laboratory for WHO that is linked to other labs in the network
– said Juan Zsiming, director of the lab, professor at Wuhan University of Virology in 2017, Nature Science Journal.
According to the article, it has been reported in scientific circles after the announcement that new labs may release a virus. Molecular biologist Richard Ebright (Rutgers University, New Jersey) told the newspaper that such an incident had already occurred in China: The SARS virus was repeatedly released from high-security Beijing laboratories.
And biosecurity expert Tim Trevan stressed that having an open society is also very important for the safe operation of such a laboratory, which is not exactly the case in China with a hierarchical structure. Diversity of viewpoints, a flat organizational culture where everyone can speak freely, and openness to information are all very important, he added.
This opinion sounds strange at first, but when you think about it, in a society where people are accustomed to freedom of speech and employees are not afraid to admit their mistakes, such a controlled lab can work better because it is because somebody makes a mistake , that soon becomes clear. You don't have to worry about being cruelly retaliated or silenced. In such a lab, breaches of security protocols, minor incidents (such as a ripped dress or a missed report) can be a serious problem. Juan Zsiming, director of the Wuhan Lab, told Natures in 2017:
Wuhan Lab Director Juan Zsiming told Naturen in 2017:
the most important thing that employees need to understand is to report everything they have done or failed to do. Transparency is the basis of the lab.
Of course, Chinese microbiologists have been delighted to finally be able to research the world's most dangerous biological threats in their labs, not all nations you can tell about yourself. (Hungary, by the way: yes, there is such a security class 4 laboratory at the University of Pécs).
A few days ago, the Washington Times was a former Israeli military intelligence officer asked me whether there is any real basis for the production of biological weapons in the laboratory of the virology institute in question. Dany Shoham, who also studied Chinese biological weapons, told the paper:
Some of the institutes' labs may have been involved in the production of biological weapons, as far as research and development are concerned, if not incidentally, not specifically in the mainstream of the Chinese biological weapons program.
The expert also added that biological weapons are created through civil-military dual research, and it's definitely a secret activity. China officially denies producing a biological weapon, but the US State Department said last year that they suspected the opposite was true, the paper wrote.
In addition, the fish market in Wuhan, formerly confidently the starting point for the virus, was probably not, or at least not, the only source of the virus, we've written in detail here.
It is very important to keep in mind that the great powers, including the United States, obviously did not look good, either two years earlier or today, that their counterparts are planning to deal with deadly viruses in seven super-security labs, so they look suspicious for Chinese virus research. You will probably never find out if the human error in the lab has released the virus, but the facts known so far do not support the suspicion that the laboratory or the Chinese government had anything to do with the epidemic.
Zombivirus and Resident Evil
While it is truly scary to read that tens of millions of people have been quarantined and more than 100 have died from the coronavirus, one of the funniest and viral viral theory is that the Wuhan Virology Institute and Lab are actually the real Umbrella Corporation evil) from a video game and a film series made from it. The photo below shows that on the one hand the logo of an allegedly Wuhan company is very similar to the movie Umbrella Corp (the real Umbrella Corp) and on the other hand that the English word “corona” does not coincide with the word “Racoon” the name of the city from which a zombie virus destroying humanity was released from a super-secret lab.
The Snopes fact-checking page points out in his article, the logo and the biotech company did exist, it was operating, but in a city 500 miles away in Shanghai (as can be seen on the caption below the logo) and no trace of the company can be found today. And the Racoon story also fails to spell the city as Raccoon in the game.
Bill Gates told me in advance
Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft a year earlier at a Massachusetts Medical Society health conference, predicted that a global epidemic would soon start in China, killing 33 million in the first six months – writes The Sun. According to Gates, there is little progress in healthcare, which is preparing for national-level epidemics. When we are preparing for a biological threat, we are not fast enough.
The world should be prepared just as seriously for epidemics as it is for war.
Bill Gates then presented a study by the Institute for Disease Modeling, which models how quickly a new disease can spread. The time lapse video below shows how a virus can spread from China from day one to month six, leaving a total of 33 million dead in the world.

As a matter of truth, Bill Gates has for many years said in numerous interviews and lectures that humanity is not prepared for a global epidemic, though one will happen and have serious consequences. Whether or not your prediction is coming true is too early to guess. Some researchers are already claiming they have found an effective antidote for the virus.
