Why life-threatening viruses always leave China, Shiv Sena wonders

MUMBAI: Affirming that life-threatening viruses often originate in China, Shiv Sena said Friday that the world community should find out if pathogens as a novel are emerging from efforts to produce biological weapons.

The outbreak of a new coronavirus was detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan earlier this month. The epidemic has killed 170 people and infected more than 7,000 worldwide.

In his spokesman's editorial, '' Shiv Sena noted that several developed countries, including the U.S and Japan are fighting the new virus.

But you must also track how these viruses are always generated that threaten life in China. China has a biological laboratory where the coronavirus was found (first), he said.

Experiments are carried out on different animals there ... The world community should also find out if those viruses are emerging from efforts to produce biological weapons of mass destruction for the future, the party said.

The Seine, who runs a coalition government, also suggested that special squads be formed as a precaution in the northeastern states of India that share the border with China to stop the spread of the disease.

In Maharashtra, at least 12 people have been quarantined in government hospitals for possible exposure to the virus, although no confirmed cases have been found.
