The main culprit seems to be Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, an outstanding Chinese scientist, born in Tianjin.
This story was published on Oct. 3, 2019. A Canadian government scientist at the National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg made at least five trips to China in 2017-18, including one to train scientists and technicians at China's newly certified Level 4 lab, which does research with the most deadly pathogens, according to travel documents obtained by CBC News. Xiangguo Qiu — who was escorted out of the Winnipeg lab in July amid an RCMP investigation into what's being described by Public Health Agency of Canada as a possible "policy breach" — was invited to go to the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences twice a year for two years, for up to two weeks each time. "This will be third-party funded, and therefore no cost to [the Public Health Agency of Canada]," say the documents, obtained through access to information requests. The identity of the third-party was redacted. During a Sept. 19-30, 2017, trip, she also met with collaborators in Beijing, the documents say, but their names have also been blacked
In July 2019, a rare event occurred in Canada, whereby a group of Chinese virologists were forcibly dispatched from the Canadian National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg, a facility they worked in, running parts of the Special Pathogen Programme of Canada’s Public Health Agency. Experimental infections – including aerogenic ones – of monkeys with the most lethal viruses found on Planet Earth comprise nearly a routine therein.
Four months earlier, a shipment of two exceptionally virulent viruses dealt with in the NML – Ebola and Nipah viruses – was on its way from NML, ended in China, and has thereafter been traced and regarded to be improper, specifically put as “possible policy breaches”, or rather but an “administrative issue”, ostensibly.
NUSADAILY.COM-SHANGHAI- Israeli intelligence suspects that the horrendous coronavirus is a runaway Chinese biological weapons virus. The Wuhan Coronavirus which has shocked the world seems to have traced its origins. The brother of the virus that caused the SARS epidemic also originated not far from ‘his brother’. Reporting from the Washington Times, Radio Free Asia this week has re-broadcast Wuhan local television reports from 2015.
Scientific director Dr. Frank Plummer says the lab obtained the virus from the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The Dutch lab was the one that first identified the new virus last June in a sample from a Saudi man who had died of a mysterious illness. Plummer says the coronavirus arrived at the Winnipeg facility on May 4. He says the lab is growing up stocks of the virus and will use it to assess diagnostic tests being used in Canada. As well Winnipeg scientists plan to do some work to see which animal species can be infected with the new virus.
WINNIPEG -- Dr. Frank Plummer, the former scientific director of Canada’s National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg, is being mourned as a “maverick.” He died Tuesday at the age of 67.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Tuesday, January 28, 2020 Harvard University Professor and Two Chinese Nationals Charged in Three Separate China Related Cases The Department of Justice announced today that the Chair of Harvard University’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department and two Chinese nationals have been charged in connection with aiding the People’s Republic of China.
Plummer reportedly died of a heart attack, Fowke said.
The former scientific director of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory who had experimental brain surgery to battle alcoholism has died.
Dr. Plummer was working to develop an HIV vaccine at the time of his death, and was believed to be the first recipient in North America to receive DBS (deep brain stimulation) to treat alcohol-use disorder, in an experimental trial.
No confirmed cause of death has yet been released

Shi was born in May 1964 in Xixia County, Henan, China. She graduated from Wuhan University in 1987. She received her master's degree from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 1990 and her Ph.D. from Montpellier 2 University in 2000.
From 2014, Shi Zhengli has been the recipient of a number of US Government grants as well as grants from the National Basic Research program of China, the Chinese Academy of Science, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and from the Strategic Priority Research Program of Chinese Academy of Sciences, to assist in funding research into coronaviruses.
During the 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, Shi and other 12 scientists formed an expert group on the research of Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
