Luc Montagnier: COVID-19 comes from a laboratory in Wuhan
French virologist, Nobel laureate, Luc Montagnier said that according to him Covid-19 was developed in a laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
According to media reports, Luc Montagnier, who won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for discovering HIV, said the coronavirus was not of natural origin. He also said that the presence of HIV elements in the coronavirus genome and even elements of “malaria germs” are highly suspicious.

“This [virus] has an artificial origin, it is the work of molecular biologists,” said Montagnier in an interview.
” The Wuhan laboratory has specialized in these coronaviruses since the early 2000s. They are experts in this field, ” he added.
In recent days, various medical journals have stressed that SARS samples have previously leaked twice from Chinese laboratories.
Earlier this month, the US government said it was investigating the possibility that coronavirus was accidentally released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, after it was revealed that bats were not sold on the “seafood market” China blamed for the spread of the virus. and the first patient, like many other early cases, had no connection with this market.
Reports that the virus originated in China’s “seafood market” are a “beautiful legend” because Covid-19 was created in a laboratory, said Montagnier.

Nobel laureate scientist who discovered HIV says the coronavirus was created in a laboratory.
Professor Luc Montagnier, a French scientist, in 2008 a co-winner of the Nobel Prize in medicine for the discovery of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), joined his voice to those who believe that the new SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus was created in the laboratory. In an interview with the French channel CNews, Montagnier stated that the virus was created by molecular biologists. Indicating that it contains genetic elements of HIV, he claims that its features could not appear naturally.

When asked by journalist CNews about the purpose of these molecular biologists, Montagnier said it was not clear. ” My task ,” he said, ” is to reveal the facts .” Although he emphasized that he did not know who did it or why, Luc Montagnier suggested that perhaps the goal was to develop an AIDS vaccine. Calling the virus ” professional work … very meticulous work, ” he described its genome as “a precise sequence.”
“There is a part that is clearly a classic virus, and there is a second, mainly from a bat, but sequences have been added to this part, mainly from HIV – the virus that causes AIDS,” he said.
Increasing evidence that the virus has been ‘constructed’
Luc Montagnier also emphasized that he is not the first scientist to claim that the coronavirus was created in the laboratory. Previously, on January 31, 2020, a group of researchers from India published a document suggesting that the features of the virus show a “peculiar similarity” to HIV. To sum up, the researchers concluded that their findings suggest that the virus has gone through “unconventional evolution” and that further investigation of the case is warranted. Since the researchers later withdrew their document, Luc Montagnier said they were “forced” to do so.
In February 2020, a separate scientific article was published by scientists from the South China University of Technology, suggesting that the virus “probably” originates from a laboratory in Wuhan, the city where it was first identified. Significantly, one of the research centers mentioned in the article, the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory, is reportedly the only laboratory in China designated to study highly dangerous pathogens such as Ebola and SARS. Even before opening this laboratory in 2018, biosecurity experts and scientists from the United States expressed concern that the virus could get out of it. However, as with the article published by Indian researchers, the article by Chinese scientists was withdrawn.
Involvement of the pharmaceutical industry
Professor Montagnier has long shown that he is not afraid to question the dominant views of the scientific community. Previously, in an interview recorded in 2009 for the AIDS documentary House of Numbers, he spoke of the role of nutrition and antioxidants in combating HIV / AIDS. As co-discoverer of the HIV virus and Nobel Prize winner, Luc Montagnier gave this statement valuable support to Dr. Rath and other scientists who had warned the world years ago about the pharmaceutical business associated with the AIDS epidemic.
Similarly, his current statement that coronavirus was developed by molecular biologists raises serious doubts about the possible involvement of the pharmaceutical industry. As Luc Montagnier argues, a man-made virus whose genome consists of a “precise sequence” and contains elements of HIV could not be built by amateurs. Given estimates that overall global costs associated with coronavirus range from $ 4.1 trillion to $ 20 trillion or more, current questions about its origin are unlikely to disappear quickly.
