China’s Foreign Ministry says the Wuhan Virology Lab should receive the Nobel Prize in Medicine for its role in studying COVID-19.
The virus was first recorded in the city of Wuhan in late 2019.
Last week, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhau Lijian dismissed claims that the lab itself was responsible for the pandemic, the Jerusalem Post reports.
“If those that first publish high-quality viral genomes were to be accused of making the virus, then Prof. Luc Montagnier, who first discovered the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), would be considered the culprit of AIDS rather than awarded the Nobel Prize, and Mr. Louis Pasteur, who discovered microbes, would be held accountable for the disease-causing bacteria all around the globe,” Lijian said.
“By analogy, the team in Wuhan should be awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine for their research on COVID-19, instead of being criticized.”
