Researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology have been studying viruses in animals, including bats, for the past nine years on behalf of the Chinese military, according to new documents obtained by the Daily Mail. The Chinese military had previously denied allegations linking them to the Wuhan lab.
The nearly decade-old project was created by the government and looked at viruses in animals, attempting to figure out the “dark matter” in biology that spreads them.
The Trump Administration had vocally accused the Wuhan lab of conducting military research throughout the Covid pandemic—one which was consistently denied by the majority of main stream media and Trump opposition.
Lianchao Han defected from the Chinese government and spoke to the Daily Mail about the development.
“Many have been working with Western research institutes for years to steal our know-hows, but China still refuses to share critical information a year after the pandemic has killed over 3 million,” Han said.
State Department weapons expert David Asher said China is likely conducting the research for its military with advanced warfare in mind.
“The Chinese have made it clear they see biotechnology as a big part of the future of hybrid warfare,” Asher said. “The big question is whether their work in these fields is offensive or defensive.”

The Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM), the command responsible for overseeing U.S. operations in the area, said in a statement that the encounter occurred on December 21, during which a Chinese Navy J-11 fighter jet flew within 10 feet (3 meters) of a U.S. Air Force RC-135, a reconnaissance plane with about 30 people on board.
According to a U.S. military spokesperson, the Chinese jet came within 10 feet of the airplane’s wing, but 20 feet from its nose, causing the U.S. aircraft to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision.
