Tiwari, posted a picture of cover and a page from American author Dean Koontz''s book ''The Eyes of Darkness'' and tweeted: "Is coranavirus a biological weapon developed by the Chinese called Wuhan-400? This book was published in 1981. Do read the excerpt."

"They call the stuff ''Wuhan-400'' because it was developed at their RDNA labs outside of the city of Wuhan, and it was the four hundredth viable strain of man-made micro-organisms created at that centre," Tiwari highlighted a paragraph.
