Documents obtained by the Department of State (DOS) revealed that Chinese scientists have been preparing for a third world war fought with biological and genetic weapons, including coronaviruses, since 2015. According to the document, they will be “the core weapon for victory” in a conflict of that magnitude.
Titled “New Species of Man-Made Viruses as Genetic Bioweapons,” the documents outlined the perfect conditions to release a bioweapon and documented the impact it would have on the enemy’s medical system.
Analysts determined that the set of documents has 18 authors working at “high-risk” labs.
Attacks using bioweapons should not be carried out in the middle of a clear day as intense sunlight can damage the pathogens while rain or snow can affect the aerosol particles, according to the authors.

Instead, it should be released at night, dusk, dawn or under cloudy weather with “a stable wind direction so that the aerosol can float into the target area.”
The authors also noted that such an attack would result in a surge of patients requiring hospital treatment, which “could cause the enemy’s medical system to collapse.”
Next world war “will be biological”
The documents’ authors insisted that the next world war “will be biological,” unlike the first two wars which were described as chemical and nuclear respectively. “Following developments in other scientific fields, there have been major advances in the delivery of biological agents,” the authors wrote.
“For example, the new-found ability to freeze-dry microorganisms has made it possible to store biological agents and aerosolize them during attacks.”
The reports made by People’s Liberation Army (PLA) scientists and health officials examined the manipulation of diseases to make weapons “in a way never seen before.”
This brings up China’s alleged gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). Gain-of-function research refers to the serial passaging of microorganisms to increase their transmissibility, virulence, immunogenicity and host tropism by applying selective pressure to a culture.
The WIV has been collecting numerous coronaviruses from bats ever since the SARS outbreak in 2002. The lab is just eight miles from the Huanan wet market, which is where the first cluster of infections erupted in Wuhan.
Scientists at WIV work with Chinese military
Scientists studying bat diseases at WIV were engaged in a massive project to investigate animal viruses alongside leading military officials – despite the country’s denials of any such links. A fact sheet released by the DOS stated that WIV “has engaged in classified research, including laboratory animal experiments, on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017.”
