Coronavirus is a bio-warfare weapon is one of the conspiracies that have appeared since the outbreak of coronavirus.
World Health Organisation stated that COVID-19 is a zoonotic virus and bats appear to be the reservoir of COVID-19 virus, but the intermediate host(s) has not yet been identified.
Global Times reported that the speculations circulated on social media that the current novel coronavirus may have been made in labs or as part of a bio-attack has been refuted by the Virologists who say that COVID 19 cannot be engineered by humans and people should think twice before circulating such theories at the movement.
Moreover, there are no official records or documents to prove that coronavirus is being used as a bio-warfare weapon with the deliberate release of pathogens or toxins to kill humans or animals. The coronavirus is new, and its lack of information combines to create the perfect situation for baseless conspiracy theories.
