The Daily Beast edition, citing the media opposing the Chinese authorities, reported on the flight of a major official of the Chinese counterintelligence to the United States. It is assumed that he took with him some secret information about the coronavirus.
In particular, it is alleged that the Deputy Minister of State Security of the People's Republic of China, Dong Jingwei, secretly left Hong Kong with his daughter, Dong Yang, for the United States. The escape allegedly took place in February of this year. The fugitive official was responsible for all counterintelligence activities in the country since 2018.
According to the publication, Jingwei took with his data on the work of the laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, concerning the origin of the COVID-19 virus. The information received from the Chinese defector, according to the authors of the material, allowed the US administration to insist on China's involvement in the artificial appearance of the pandemic virus.
Earlier, the World Health Organization sent a group of experts who visited the Wuhan Institute. The latter concluded that the hypothesis of a coronavirus leak from the laboratory is вЂњvery unlikelyвЂќ. Despite this, the US authorities consider the natural origin of SARS-CoV-2 not proven and insist on an вЂњindependent investigationвЂќ.
