Chinese military probed Weaponising coronavirus in 2015, looking for leaked documents

Leaked Documents: The document lists some of China’s top public health figures among the authors and has been revealed in an upcoming book on the origins of COVID, titled ‘What Really Happened In Wuhan’.

Chinese military scientists are suspected of investigating the coronaviruses five years before the COVID-19 epidemic and may have predicted that World War 3 would be fought with biological weapons, according to media reports quoting documents obtained by the US State Department.

According to ‘The Sun’ newspaper in the UK, quoting reports first released by ‘The Australian’, the “bombshell” documents obtained by the US State Department reportedly show the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) commanders making the sinister prediction.

US officials allegedly obtained the papers which were written by military scientists and senior Chinese public health officials in 2015 as part of their own investigation into the origins of COVID-19.

Chinese scientists have described SARS coronaviruses – COVID as one of their examples – as introducing a “new era of genetic weapons”.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, several of which cause respiratory diseases in humans – ranging from a common cold to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

The PLA papers shown seem to think that bioweapon attacks could cause the enemy’s “medical system to collapse”.

It references work by US Air Force colonel Michael J. Ainscough, who predicted World War III may be fought with bioweapons.

The paper also claims that SARS – which struck China in 2003 – could have been a man-made weapon deliberately issued by “terrorists”.

They reportedly boast that the virus “could be misused to become a viral disease, and then be armed and exposed in an unprecedented way”.

The document lists some of China’s top public health figures among the authors and has been revealed in an upcoming book on the origins of COVID, titled ‘What Really Happened In Wuhan’.

China reported the first COVID-19 case in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019 and since then the deadly disease has become a pandemic, affecting more than 15,77,89,300 people and causing over 32,85,200 deaths worldwide.

Tom Tugendhat MP and Australian politician James Paterson said the document raises major concerns about China’s transparency on the origins of COVID-19.

Tugendhat, chairman of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee, was quoted in ‘The Sun’ as saying: “China’s evident interest in bioweapons is extremely concerning. Even under the tightest controls these weapons are dangerous.

“This document raises major concerns about the ambitions of some of those who advise the top party leadership.”

Peter Jennings, the executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), told that the document is as close to a “smoking gun” as we’ve got.

“I think this is significant because it clearly shows that Chinese scientists were thinking about military application for different strains of the coronavirus and thinking about how it could be deployed,” said Jennings.

“It begins to firm up the possibility that what we have here is the accidental release of a pathogen for military use,” added Jennings.

He also said that the document may explain why China has been so reluctant for outside investigations into the origins of COVID-19.

“If this was a case of transmission from a wet market it would be in China’s interest to co-operate…we’ve had the opposite of that.”

Among the 18 listed authors of the document are People’s Liberation Army scientists and weapons experts.

Robert Potter, a cyber security specialist who analyses leaked Chinese government documents was asked by The Australian to verify the paper. He says the document definitely is not fake.

“We reached a high confidence conclusion that it was genuine…It’s not fake but it’s up to someone else to interpret how serious it is,” Potter told

“It emerged in the last few years…they (China) will almost certainly try to remove it now it’s been covered.”

Questions remain over the origins of the deadly virus after a much derided World Health Organisation (WHO) probe earlier this year, with the organisation ordering a further investigation which factors in the possibly of a lab leak.

Most scientists have said there is no evidence that COVID-19 is manmade – but questions remain whether it may have escaped from a secretive biolab in Wuhan – from where the pandemic originated.

China is known to have been carrying out high risk “gain of function” research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) – which is near the outbreak’s ground zero at the Huanan Seafood Market.

There is no evidence so far to suggest it was intentionally released by China.

Meanwhile, in Beijing, the state-owned newspaper Global Times has criticized The Australian for publishing an article on China’s anointing.

A textbook examining bioterrorism and the potential for war-torn germs was interpreted as a conspiracy by The Australian, which deliberately and maliciously sought to establish excuses for China, Chen Hong, professor and director of the Australian Studies Center at East China Normal University, told the newspaper.

“It is a disgrace that anti-Chinese soldiers in Australia have returned their views to China without the basic ethics of journalism, conspiring to distort the true meaning of this book,” Chen said.
