Bundestag raises the question about the artificial origin of SARS-CoV-2
The question on the artificial origin of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 was raised by Hansjörg Muller, an MP from the right-wing German party Alternative for Germany, to the government of Germany, according to a response to a request posted on the website of the Bundestag on January 19.
“Is it unequivocal evidence that the coronavirus COVID-19 is of natural origin, with the fact that the virologist who discovered the Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier saw genetic changes in the COVID-19 virus, and if so, where does this virus occur in nature, that is, in which living creature it was ‘isolated’?”, the MP asked the German government?
State Secretary Dr. Thomas Gebhardt responded on behalf of the Ministry of Health of the Federal Republic of Germany. He explained to the deputy that SARS-CoV-2 is a beta-corona virus that has been identified as the causative agent of COVID-19. That there is no reason to believe that SARS-CoV-2 did not arise in vivo. That it originated in the bat and then changed hosts. That the intermediate host has not yet been identified.
Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier, the German state secretary honored silence, but mentioned the publication of a study that established “a link between SARS-CoV-2 and HIV, and thereby hinted at gene modification of the virus.” Gebhardt stated that “this publication was retracted in the interim due to scientific errors, and therefore this thesis should be viewed as untenable.
