Conspiracy mongers of the Internet users claim that the new strain of the Coronavirus was made up in the laboratory as a biological arm.
The virus according to those gossipers was launched perchance to bring havoc to China and other countries in the world.
USA agencies have warned for two years that an unknown destructive virus would escape a laboratory in China.
Scientists around the world affirm that there is no concrete evidence proves those assumptions linked to the conspiracy theory at all.
Some people pretend that the Chinese government runs a secret laboratory in Wuhan, the epicenter of the Coronavirus that broke out late in December, to study a number of the most dangerous viruses across the planet.
The scientists have studied the novel strain of Coronavirus thoroughly and affirmed that there is no clue that the virus made by humans in the lab.
It seems that the mutations of the virus are mere natural grades, not unexpected deformations resulted from human factors.
Dr. Trevor Bedford, the senior researcher at Fred Hutchinson Center for Cancer in Seattle, USA, said that the coronavirus has developed in the environment naturally.
Another researcher who studies the deadly virus pointed out that the virus which is known officially now as COVID-19 is not a product of generic geometry.

The viruses cope with many challenges in the environment so they change deeply.
The new strains of the viruses make treatment more complicated.
The deadly virus killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands in China alone.
