The current situation of the coronavirus in China is from a political standpoint highly dangerous because while China is a major manufacturing power, she is also weak and could be pulled into a war against India if not careful in the future. There has been a quiet shift among businesses from China to India in all sectors that the Hindu powerhouse, emboldened by the rise of Hindu Nationalism, is using to build herself up into a formidable opponent.
One statement of power flexing recently came from the Indian government when they declared that they would probe the Wuhan institute of virology in light of the current situation with the virus.
The Indian government has ordered an inquiry into a study conducted in the Northeastern state of Nagaland (close to China) by researchers from the U.S., China and India on bats and humans carrying antibodies to deadly viruses like Ebola, officials confirmed to The Hindu.
The study came under the scanner as two of the 12 researchers belonged to the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s Department of Emerging Infectious Diseases, and it was funded by the United States Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). They would have required special permissions as foreign entities.
The study, conducted by scientists of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in the U.S. and the Duke-National University in Singapore, is now being investigated for how the scientists were allowed to access live samples of bats and bat hunters (humans) without due permissions.
