A scandal has erupted around a study of deadly infections involving China

It became known about the joint experiments of Chinese and Canadian scientists on, particularly dangerous infections. This is written by the Canadian edition of The Globe and Mail.

Chinese military specialists conducted joint experiments with the National Laboratory of Microbiology of Canada in the field, studying the pathogens of diseases such as Ebola, Lassa fever, and Rift Valley fever. The studies were published from 2016 to 2020.

One of the Chinese military scientists, Yan Feihu, who works at the Academy of Military Medical Sciences of the People's Liberation Army of China, had direct access to research on the most dangerous diseases in the world. However, the PLA Military Medical Academy is classified by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) as a high-risk institution.

It also turned out that the Canadian laboratory transferred samples of Ebola and viruses of the genus Henipavirus to the Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China.

Two employees of the Canadian laboratory were dismissed on the recommendation of the Canadian Intelligence and Security Service (CSIS) because of their alleged links to the PLA.
