The world is still recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic, one of the biggest crises of the century, which originated in China’s Wuhan. And the danger is not over yet, as the pandemic is still haunting parts of the globe with its new variants.

Meanwhile, a new report has surfaced that revealed - Pakistan and China are working in partnership to create pathogens deadlier than Covid-19 virus. As per the report, scientists from both countries are researching the bioweapon at a top-secret facility in Rawalpindi. 

According to a report by the news agency ANI, citing Geo-Politik, the ‘evil’ project is being carried out by Wuhan Institute and the Defense Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO).

However, Pakistan's Foreign Office refuted the reports, saying, there is nothing secret about the Bio-Safety Level-3 (BSL-3) Laboratory mentioned in the report, as per Geo-Politik.

As per the report, the top-secret facility is in Rawalpindi’s Chaklala cantonment, a highly secure zone headed by a two-star General.

Other media reports have also indicated that the Chinese Communist Party is trying to develop deadly viruses with the potential to incur far more damage than Covid.

China’s strict Zero Covid Policy

The Xi Jinping-led government has imposed its draconian ‘Zero Covid Policy’ because of surging Covid-19 cases in the country. China is recording at least 1,000 Covid cases every day. The strict policy, which aims to curb the spread of Covid-19 virus, however, caused fear, anger and confusion among the Chinese people. Due to the programme, thousands of people are under house arrest and forced to live in appalling conditions.

People from time to time had expressed their anger on social media platforms. An unknown person put a banner near the venue of the National Congress, which read, “"Say no to Covid test, yes to food. No to lockdown, yes to freedom. No to lies, yes to dignity."
