Washington: China's propaganda campaign is going on in full swing amid increasing blows to its credibility about the leak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) from the Wuhan lab.
Jamie Metzl, a member of the World Health Organization's (WHO) advisory board, told Fox News that the Chinese administration was destroying samples and hiding records. It is giving false orders to its scientists and imprisoning its citizens and journalists for asking basic questions.
It has been further reported that China is reportedly planning to build dozens of biosafety level three laboratories and one biosafety level four laboratory over the next five years, as investigators look at the possibility that the coronavirus may have leaked from China's Wuhan laboratory.
The entire world suspects China
Metzl said that the more China wants to show itself to be innocent, the more it arouses the suspicion of other countries.
"We cannot give China the right to decide whether we should investigate the worst pandemic of this century," the WHO advisor said.
"Every effort should be made for a complete investigation in relation to the pandemic," he added.
Virus leaked from Wuhan lab
The US Government's National Laboratory gave a report in 2020, which said that the coronavirus leaked from the Wuhan laboratory of China. The Wall Street Journal has given this information citing people with access to the confidential document.
The California-based National Laboratory prepared its report in May 2020. In this, it spoke of the virus leaking from the Wuhan lab, stating the need for further investigation. The US laboratory made this conclusion through genome analysis of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Indian scientist couple exposes China
A husband-wife duo of Indian scientists have exposed China's role in creating the Covid-19 virus in a Wuhan laboratory and spreading the coronavirus pandemic all over the world.
The coronavirus originated from a lab in Wuhan, not an animal market or from a fish, as China tells the world. This has been claimed by the Indian scientist couple who are part of a global group that is trying to gather concrete evidence about the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.
Pune-based scientist couple Dr. Rahul Bahulikar and Dr. Monali Rahalkar said that strong evidence has been found in favour of the theory that the coronavirus was created in China's Wuhan lab.
Their arguments were initially rejected
Both of them had made similar claim earlier but their arguments were then dismissed as a conspiracy. Now that US President Joe Biden has ordered an investigation into the origin of the coronavirus pandemic, once again this matter has come into the limelight.
Regarding his research, Dr. Rahalkar said that he cannot say with certainty that the virus was leaked from the lab, but there is strong evidence in favor of this possibility.
Wuhan lab collected virus from Yannai mine
"We started our research in April last year. We found that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) collected the SARS-CoV-2 family coronavirus RATG12 from a mineshaft located in Mojiang, south China's Yannan province," Dr. Rahalkar said.
Workers cleaning mineshafts fell ill
"We also discovered that six laborers were sent to clean the mineshaft where there was a terror of bats. These laborers were suffering from a disease similar to pneumonia," Dr. Rahalkar said.
Suspicion of changes to the virus's genome in Wuhan lab
He said that WIV and other labs in Wuhan were conducting experiments on the virus and suspected that they had made some changes in the genome of the corona virus. It may be that the current corona virus originated during this process.
