Former MI6 Head: Coronavirus Is Man-Made, Released From A Lab

The former head of MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove, has said that he believes the coronavirus is man-made and was accidentally leaked from a a lab in China.

Dearlove, who was chief at Britain’s equivalent of the CIA from 1999 until 2004, cited a report written by Professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital, University of London and Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen which presents evidence suggesting the virus was manufactured in a laboratory.

The paper examines Covid-19’s genetic sequence, and concludes that key elements were “inserted” and are unlikely to have evolved naturally.

The scientists pointed to “inserted sections placed on the SARS-CoV-2 Spike surface” that enable the virus to specifically bind itself to human cells.

“I do not think that this started as an accident,” Dearlove said during an interview with The Telegraph’s Planet Normal podcast.
