Is the cat out of Wuhan virology lab?
The Wuhan institute director admits: That a team in the lab had been doing research on bat coronavirus SARS since 2004 and it has three live strains now; and, That the strains have (only) 80% similarity to SARS-CoV-2 which is devastating the world currently.

BEIJING, May 25: The director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Wang Yanyi, has refuted US President Donald Trump's insinuation that novel coronavirus came out of the Wuhan lab by mistake, accidentally or deliberately as "pure fabrication."

In an interview to State brroadcaster CGTN published last week, Wang disclosed that the laboratory had three strains of bat coronavirus but none had any close similarity with the new coronavirus.

She said a team headed by Prof Shi Zhengli had been doing research on bat coronavirus since 2004 (The first SARS epidemic broke out in 2003). The director said the team had been focused on "source tracing of SARS."

Wang said SARS-CoV-2 has only 80% similarity to SARS." The Wuhan lab received samples of the new coronavirus on December 30 last (as the virus was spreading in the province.) The lab determined the viral genome sequence on January 2 and submitted the findings to the WHO on January 11, she said.
