Scientists at Wuhan lab admitted being bitten while collecting samples in a cave

Scientists at the Wuhan lab admitted being bitten while collecting samples in a cave which is home to coronavirus-infected bats. 

One researcher said one animal’s fangs went through his rubber gloves ‘like a needle’.

Staff inside the top-secret facility were also shown handling bats without gloves and working on ‘live viruses’ without masks in apparent breach of strict World Health Organisation safety rules on PPE, according to footage captured by a Chinese TV crew and broadcast in 2017.
