Biden receives inconclusive report on origin of COVID-19 | Digital Trends Spanish

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, received an inconclusive classified report prepared by the intelligence of his country on the origin of COVID-19. This document does not determine whether the virus jumped from an animal to a human or left a laboratory located in Wuhan, China. This was at least announced by two officials who were able to access the document, in a conversation with The Washington Post. Both have explained that the United States Intelligence now seeks to declassify some fragments of the report to release them publicly. In May, Biden commissioned US agencies to carry out an investigation within 90 days that could provide a definitive conclusion on the origin of COVID-19. This report was ordered after another document pointed to the Wuhan laboratory, as severa...

China Opposes New Pandemic Investigation | Digital Trends Spanish

China is opposed to carrying out a new investigation into the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic in its territory, following a request made by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Did the nightmare return? Wuhan detects new infections | Digital Trends Spanish

After a year, Wuhan has again detected positive cases of COVID-19. There are three infected and five asymptomatic cases.

Coronavirus: Lost Genetic Sequences Found in Wuhan | Digital Trends Spanish

Although the planet has been dealing with the serious consequences of the pandemic for more than a year and a half, the real causes of the disease are still unknown. Last year, the genetic sequences of more than 200 samples from the first COVID-19 cases in Wuhan disappeared from a database. They were thirteen partial genetic sequences deleted from Google Cloud, which were part of some of the cases that appeared in this Chinese city. Fortunately, a scientist has been able to find some of them. Getty Images / Digital Trends GraphicJesse Bloom, virologist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, has written a report describing his finding, noting that the deletion of these sequences is suspicious. "It seems likely that the sequences were removed to hide their existence," he says. "...
