Despite the questions over the role of the Wuhan lab in the origin of coronavirus, China is set to build more bio labs. The country's government has brought into force a new biosecurity law that is aimed at providing legal security to the establishment and safe operation of bio labs in the country. The deadly virus first emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019 and then spread into the rest of the world.
