China’s ‘bat woman’ says COVID-19 did not originate in Wuhan lab

November 21, 2020 

China’s “bat woman” says that a new batch of tests prove that the coronavirus did not originate at her Wuhan virology lab.

Shi Zhengli, the deputy director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology who is well known for her work on the virus, said that updated tests of blood samples taken eight years ago from a group of miners who became ill after working in bat caves in southwest China show that none of them were infected with COVID-19, according to The South China Morning Post.

Shi’s findings were published this week as an update to a paper she released in February in the scientific journal Nature, the newspaper said.

Shi, known as China’s “bat woman,” has said the genetic characteristics of the viruses she’s worked on didn’t match those of the coronavirus spreading in humans. So far, the virus has infected nearly 58 million people around the world and killed over 1.37 million, according to Johns Hopkins University.
