China Claim Coronavirus Originated In India

Chinese researchers have claimed that coronavirus originated in India, in the latest attempt by academics to pin blame for the pandemic outside their borders.

A team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences argues the virus likely originated in India in summer 2019 - jumping from animals to humans via contaminated water - before travelling unnoticed to Wuhan, where it was first detected.

But western researchers cautioned that the study - which has not yet been peer reviewed - makes 'big claims' and should be treated with skepticism.
