By Joe 1of2

The Chinese Communist Party Minister of Science and Technology, Xiang Libin, announced the CCP plans to build three additional level 4 bio safety laboratories and 88 level 3 bio safety labs across the country. Xiang Libin said the CCP has approved the construction of the labs, this represents more than a 100% increase in the number of “bio safety” labs operated by the CCP. The Wuhan Institute of Virology, where many experts believe the COVID-19 virus was released, is one of the two level 4 labs China currently operates, there soon will be three more of these labs. Accidental virus leaks from labs have been the cause of previous outbreaks including the 2004 SARS outbreak that was spread around the world.
