This expert in nanotechnology has been arrested, but has nothing to do with the COVID-19. However, there are those who say that Charles Lieber it is a spy chinese and that with the creation of this virus was destabilize the united States.
Charles Lieber he was the director of the department of chemical biology of the Harvard University, specialized in nanoscience between the years 1991 and 2011. In 2013 he became a ‘Scientist, Strategic Technology University of Wuhan (WUT) participating in the program ‘Thousand Talents Program’ (The Plan of Thousand Talents), one of the plans of recruitment of foreign researchers in a hidden way. However, in 2018, Lieber admitted that I never participated in that Plan.
To Lieber he is accused of lying about its links with the chinese government, which funded his research in the field of nanotechnology. The office american points out that it would have participated in the ‘Plan of Thousand Talents’ carried out in China, whose purpose was to recruit foreign researchers while you were receiving federal funds americans for their studies.
‘The New York Times’ published the american scientist received each month up to $ 50,000 as salary and 150,000 per year in quality costs on the part of the University of Wuhan. Also received a million and a half dollars the chinese university and the Government of Beijing to build a laboratory in Wuhan. At the same time, his research team at Harvard had received 15 million from the National Institute of american Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense since the year 2008.
His arrest by alleged theft of intellectual property is part of the operating american of chinese scientists working in the universities of the united States or are visiting the country, but not by the creation of a virus. Today it is not confirmed if the origin of the coronavirus whether natural or human, although the investigations point to the first.
