Iraqi political analyst Sabah Al-Akili said in a February 5, 2020 interview on Al-Etejah TV (Iraq) that the Coronavirus epidemic in China serves American interests and is part of a biological war being waged against China by the United States. He elaborated with a claim that there have been analyses that say that in 2015, an American delegation to a military conference in China released "electronic flies" that spread the virus. It should be noted that "electronic flies" is the Arabic term for "bots," but it seems that Al-Akili believes them to be actual flies that were released in China.
Sabah Al-Akili: "There are analyses that say that in 2015, there was an American delegation that came to China to take part in a military industry conference. According to these analyses, this epidemic was spread there, and according to some analyses, electronic flies [sic] were spread in that region. Whom does this virus serve? According to this analysis, the virus serves the USA. China's losses are estimated at $500 billion since the beginning of the crisis. This affects [China's] situation. The United States has taken some measures with regard to China, like preventing Chinese products from entering the U.S., and preventing Chinese citizens from entering Europe and the United States. So this is a war against China, waged by means of this epidemic.
"According to Chinese analyses, the United States is behind this attack, which is a part of the biological war against China. The United States has conducted experiments in this field."
