The Nobel laureate said about the origin of the coronavirus from the lab

French virologist and Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier expressed the theory that a new type of coronavirus infection was developed in the laboratory in China.
He said he did not believe that coronavirus went from a wild animal market in the Chinese city of Wuhan. "It's a beautiful legend, it's impossible. The virus came from a lab in Wuhan," said he.

Montagnier stated that this laboratory specializiruetsya on coronaviruses in 2000-ies. He said that along with his colleague, mathematician Jean Claude Perez analyzed the genome sequence of a new type of coronavirus.

The virologist said that in this reasoning they were not the first. According to him, Indian researchers tried to publish the work, in which he stated that this genome has inserted a part of the human immunodeficiency virus is likely to make a vaccine against HIV.

Luc Montagnier received the Nobel prize in medicine and physiology in 2008 for the discovery of HIV.

On the eve of the Fox News channel, citing sources, reported that the first infected with coronavirus worked in one of the laboratories of Wuhan, which then became the epicenter of the disease. The sides of the channel noted that the virus was a biological weapon. It arose as a result of the attempts of the PRC to beat USA in the developments in the detection of viruses and fight them.
In response, the representative of the Chinese foreign Ministry Zhao Lijiang recalled that the world health organization has not confirmed the version about the artificial creation of coronavirus.
