The book talks about how the virus called Wuhan-400, was developed in military labs around the Chinese city of Wuhan from where it got its name.
The top-secret information of the Biological weapons Program is later acquired by US intelligence from a Chinese defector.
Li Chen defected to the USA and revealed that China had created a virus in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, called “Wuhan-400”.
A weapon to destroy a city or a country with a 100% kill rate (which is all obviously not the case for the novel coronavirus though).
Could this be a coincidence? Read for yourself…
