Wuhan Lab Was Working On A “Causative Agent” Of Virus “Closely Related” To Monkeypox.

(RepublicanInformer.com)- In a newly published study, researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology identified new strains of a virus that is closely related to Monkeypox.

Reports show that the uncovered document follows another paper produced by the dubious Chinese facility that outlined the construction of new monkeypox virus strains in February 2022. The research was completed just months before the most recent international outbreak of monkeypox cases, which reached the United States.

The newly discovered study, “Identification, Isolation, and Characterization of an Ectromelia Virus New Strain from an Experimental Mouse,” was initially published in 2020 by eleven researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In 2021, it was published in the scholarly journal Virologica Sinica of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
According to reports, the paper reveals the “isolation” of a novel strain of Ectromelia Virus (ECTV) from an experimental mouse brain. The strain was identified as having a “higher replication efficiency in vivo and greater transmission effectiveness to induce respiratory illness in mice.”
Investigative reports show several Chinese Communist Party-run scientific organizations, including the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and military-linked enterprises, like the National Natural Science Foundation of China, supported the study.
The discovery comes after the Wuhan Institute of Virology admitted to doing similar research into bat coronavirus strains that potentially infect people while acknowledging that its facilities lacked basic laboratory safety measures.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers also claim that ECTV is highly similar to Monkeypox.
International media reports show that at the time of the study’s publication, the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s ECTV strain was preserved in the National Virus Resource Center. Additionally, researchers noted it could be provided as a vital virus resource for the study of poxvirus.

The first human case of Monkeypox was recorded in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1970. Clades, the organisms that produce monkeypox are called after the African areas where they were discovered.
