The head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is now claiming that his country massive coronavirus epidemic, which has even infected top advisors to the Ayatollah, may be a biological attack masterminded by United States.
As The Daily Mail reports:
Hossein Salami told a crowd in Kerman today that the virus outbreak which has brought misery to Iran ‘may be the product of the American biological invasion’.
‘We will win in the fight against the virus, which may be the product of the American biological invasion, which it first spread to China and then to Iran and the rest of the world,’ he declared.
There is no evidence to support his theory of the virus, which is believed by scientists to have jumped from animals to humans in China late last year…
Scientists are not yet certain of the virus’s exact origins, although suspicion has fallen on a seafood market in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
Members of the Revolutionary Guard have routinely engaged in spreading false conspiracies in an attempt to hold up their tottering extremist regime. But with Senator Tom Cotton himself previously suggesting that the virus could be an escaped Chinese biological weapon, could there, in fact, possibly be an element of truth in these claims?
