- The House of Foreign Affairs has a highly illuminating report on the origin of the coronavirus.
- I cover some of the highlights of the report.
In August 2021, the House of Foreign Affairs Committee produced a report titled The Origins of Covid 19. This report is filled with unique and damning information, much of which I had never read before. And predictable, it was barely covered by the mainstream media, who prefer to spend their time bring Dr. Fauci onto programs to answer questions about wearing masks rather than investigating. However, the conclusion is precisely written above when this article was published in May of 2021.
The quotes I found of interest are included below.
The Report Concludes the Virus Was Released from Wuhan
Based on the material collected and analyzed by the Committee Minority Staff, the preponderance of evidence suggests SARS-CoV-2 was accidentally released from a Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory sometime prior to September 12, 2019. The virus, or the viral sequence that was genetically manipulated, was likely collected in a cave in Yunnan province, PRC, between 2012 and 2015. Researchers at the WIV, officials within the CCP, and potentially American citizens directly engaged in efforts to obfuscate information related to the origins of the virus and to suppress public debate of a possible lab leak.
Such an unequivocal statement from a US government entity is quite remarkable, considering that when the topic of a lab leak was first broached, it was widely called a conspiracy theory, and Big Tech actively censored this conclusion.
The Wet Market Hypothesis Should be Dismissed
Last September, the House Foreign Affairs Committee Minority Staff, under the direction of Ranking Member Michael T. McCaul, released a report on the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic. That report highlighted the possibility SARS-CoV-2 could have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). However, as we continued our investigation and uncovered more information, we now believe it’s time to completely dismiss the wet market as the source of the outbreak. We also believe the preponderance of the evidence proves the virus did leak from the WIV and that it did so sometime before September 12, 2019.
Something to note is that the wet market or zoonotic hypothesis never had any evidence to support it. The CCP and Peter Daszak proposed enormous reasons to try to point away from the Wuhan Institute of Technology. Peter Daszak has continually stated that “blaming” the WIV is a conspiracy theory and that…
Allegations and conjecture are of no help, as they do not facilitate access to information and objective assessment of the pathway from a bat virus to a human pathogen that might help to prevent a future pandemic. Recrimination has not, and will not, encourage international cooperation and collaboration.
However, following the trail of evidence to the WIV is appropriate. Furthermore, the WIV and the CCP have done nothing but cover up the source of the virus and then blame other countries for being the source. Daszak has himself pointed to farms in southern China as the source. Daszak has no problem with this “recrimination” as long as it points away from his baby — which is the WIV. Daszak puts forward the concept of “cooperation,” however, the type of cooperation he is interested in is helping the CCP and WIV cover-up that they are the source of the coronavirus. Secondly, Daszak wants cooperation in assisting the US government in covering up the fact that they irresponsibly and stupidly funded this work — with what is now clear was close to no oversight.
The lab leak hypothesis became adopted by global mainstream media without that media asking for any evidence that the hypothesis was true. This was, in my view, bizarre, as the CCP has a long history of lying and is not a reliable source of information on any topic. There was also a large number of holes in the hypothesis right from the beginning.
The wet market hypothesis is the plot of the 2011 movie Contagion. However, no evidence was ever presented that coronavirus came from the wet market in Wuhan, and we now know it could not have.
The Chinese Government Covered up the Lab Leak
The sudden removal of the WIV’s virus and sample database in the middle of the night on September 12, 2019 and without explanation; Safety concerns expressed by top PRC scientists in 2019 and unusually scheduled maintenance at the WIV; Athletes at the Military World Games held in Wuhan in October 2019 who became sick with symptoms similar to COVID-19 both while in Wuhan and also shortly after returning to their home countries; Satellite imagery of Wuhan in September and October 2019 that showed a significant uptick in the number of people at local hospitals surrounding the WIV’s headquarters, coupled with an unusually high number of patients with symptoms similar to COVID-19; The installation of a People’s Liberation Army’s bioweapons expert as the head of the WIV’s Biosafety Level 4 lab (BSL-4), possibly as early as late 2019; and Actions by the Chinese Communist Party and scientists working at or affiliated with the WIV to hide or coverup the type of research being conducted at there.
The report gets more into the database being taken offline in a later quote.
Lies by Biased Scientists Regarding the Virus not Being Man-Made
An American scientist, Dr. Ralph Baric, assisted in creating a method to leave no trace of genetic modification as early as 2005. And as early as 2016, scientists working at the WIV were able to do the same. This makes it clear that claims by the scientific community that SARS-CoV-2 could not be man-made because it has no genetic modification markers are disingenuous.
Evidence of the Cover-Up by the CCP and WHO
In the original report, we laid out many of the ways the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) went to great lengths to cover up the initial epidemic, and how their cover-up likely turned what could have been a local outbreak into a global pandemic. The CCP detained doctors in order to silence them, and disappeared journalists who attempted to expose the truth. They destroyed lab samples, and hid the fact there was clear evidence of human-to-human transmission. And they still refuse to allow a real investigation into the origins. At the same time, the WHO, under Director General Tedros, failed to warn the world of the impending pandemic. Instead, he parroted CCP talking points, acting as a puppet of General Secretary Xi.
The CCP had approval over who was part of the WHO team that visited the WIV a year after the outbreak.
- The CCP ensured that only controllable and biased scientists, like Peter Daszak, were on that team.
- The investigation by this team was a farce, and the more information that comes out of it, the more the WHO appears to be a puppet of the CCP.
In addition to covering up the ample evidence of the leak from the WIV, the CCP tried to point the blame to many other countries as the source of the virus — including the US. This was done with the full knowledge that the virus came from the WIV. The entire wet market hypothesis was a cover story also created by the CCP, with the assistance of Western scientists that had financial ties to the funding, like Peter Daszak.
The Disappearing WIV Database
On September 12, 2019 the WIV’s online, public database of samples and virus sequences was taken offline in the middle of the night between 2:00AM and 3:00AM local time. The database contained more than 22,000 entries consisting of sample and pathogen data collected from bats and mice. The database contained key information about each sample, including what type of animal it was collected from, where it was collected, whether the virus was successfully isolated, the type of virus collected, and its similarity to other known viruses.
What is amazing is this following quote has never come to my attention before.
Does the mainstream media not find the Chinese’s removal of access to a public database to be highly suspicious?
Lies from Dr. Shi on the Database Being Taken Down
The following quote covers lied told by Dr. Shi regarding the database as well as the common refrain to paint any questions regarding lies and inconsistencies by the Chinese as a “conspiracy theory. ”
In a January 26, 2021 email to someone inquiring about the database, however, Shi stated the database was taken down due to cyberattacks “during [the] COVID-19 pandemic.” She also claimed that researchers had “only entered a limit[ed] data in this database” despite it having more than 22,000 entries. In an apparent contradiction of her BBC interview, Shi admitted that “access to the visitors is limited,” but maintains: …all our work regarding the different type of bat coronavirus (partial sequences or full-length genome sequences) have been published and the sequence and sample information have been submitted to GenBank. (49) At the end of her email, Shi writes, “I’ll not answer any of your questions if your curiosity is based on the conspiracy of ‘man made or lab leak of SARS-CoV-2’ or some non-sense questions based on your suspicion. No trust, no conversation” (emphasis added).
Yet even after the database had been taken down, Dr. Shi continued to lie about it being accessible.
In August 2020, after the publication of the Committee Minority Staff’s interim report, the China Global Television Network interviewed Shi about our work. During the same interview, and in response to Committee Minority Staff raising questions about a possible lab leak, Shi again lied, claiming that all of the WIV’s research has been published and their samples available for review: Another piece of evidence that I can give you is that our lab has been doing research for 15 years, and all our work has been published. We also have a library of our own genetic sequences, and we have experimental records of all our work related to the virus, which are accessible for people to check.
This, again, is demonstrably false.
The WIV’s sequence library was taken offline in September 2019 and is not “accessible for people to check.” Given the previously discussed undisclosed coronavirus research and military activities at the WIV, it is obvious that not “all” of the WIV’s work has been published.
Some obvious questions arise from this quote.
- If the US government is funding so much of this work, why did the US managers and the EcoHealth Alliance not negotiate for control over the data generated at the lab? China is known for being behind the US in this type of research, so why is it funded in China? It appears that the WIV bat coronavirus research was provided funding by the US, but China and the WIV retained control over all the data that was created from the lab on the US-funded research. This is quite bizarre.
- The WIV is a well-known dual-purpose lab that is connected to the Chinese bioweapons programs. Without daily oversight of the data and WIV activities, how would the US government or the EcoHealth Alliance have any idea whether “two sets of books” were being maintained? As China seeks to develop bioweapons, why would they share their complete findings as they would be sharing the recipe of bioweapons with the US, which is the leading country China plans to use bioweapons against?
- The WIV has done whatever they want with the data, removed the database from access by the US, provided lame excuses, paid no consequences, and received no scrutiny.
There is absolutely no quality control or protection instituted by the US government or EcoHealth Alliance. EcoHealth Alliance does not seem capable of doing anything other than lobbying for GOF research and irresponsibly handing money over to the Chinese.
Lies from Peter Daszak About the WIV Database
The following is from Peter Daszak regarding the missing WIV database.
I asked the question in front of the whole team, both sides, while we were at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, about the so-called missing database. And what we were told, by Shi Zheng-li, was that there had been hacking attempts on it, about 3,000 hacking attempts, and they took down this excel spreadsheet-based database. Absolutely reasonable.
No, that is not reasonable. But secondly, why is the database in Excel if it is being kept online? Excel is not a way of displaying data online. This is just another part of the story that is very odd. Many tools can be used to show databases on a website.
It may be reasonable to take the database offline — although even that should be questioned, the WIV did much more than that. The database was not accessible by any means, including US parties visiting the WIV and reviewing the database in person at the facility. This is a clear indicator of a cover-up, and Daszek treats it as entirely normal.
Furthermore, the hacking excuse could be a deception that is just designed to justify what the WIV wanted to do in any case. The hacking claims need to be substantiated.
We did not ask to see the data, and as you know, a lot of this work is work that has been conducted with EcoHealth Alliance, and I’m also part of those data, and we do basically know what’s in those databanks.
Peter Daszak “knows what’s in those databanks” or has a duplicate of the database? Because US government agencies funded that research. This brings up the following questions.
- Why did Peter Daszak not have an agreement in place to have the data from the research?
- How can the primary funding entity be able to be locked out of the original data?
- After the database was taken down, why did Daszak not insist that the database be shared immediately with the US funding entities? Again, all of this is a pattern which calls into question if Daszak has any concern for the funders of the studies.
And I shared, I gave a talk to both sides about the work we’ve done with the Wuhan Institute of Virology and explained what’s there. There is no evidence of viruses closer to SARS-CoV-2 than RaTG13 in those databases. It’s as simple as that.
The first part of this quote is word salad, and the second part is just and evidence-free assertion of what Daszak wants the world to believe. Again, where is the original data? This is over a hundred and thirty million dollars in grants from US agencies — they should have received access to the original data and stored it on a US-based server.
The following quote is the House on Foreign Affairs analysis of Peter Daszak’s statements, which are very similar to my analysis.
This is a stunning claim given the database contained more than 22,000 samples and was inaccessible by anyone outside of the WIV after September 2019.
It was physically impossible for Daszak to remotely access the database after the SARS-CoV-2 genome was released in January 2020 in order to compare the genome to samples in the database. If not, given that no one outside of the WIV knew RaTG13 was closely related to SARS-CoV-2 prior to publication in February 2020, how could Daszak claim to know there is not a closer match in one of the 22,000 plus samples when he could not access the data? This raises the question of whether he has copy of the database.
Peter does not have a copy of the database, which is why he speaks in circles and stays away from the subject in definitive terms when asked about it.
I propose in this article, that Daszak has been acting as an agent of China and is well compensated for his loyalty to the CCP. Please see that article for a more full accounting of that topic.
A Very Dangerous Type of Research Conducted at an Incompetent Lab in China
Much of this research was focused on modifying the spike protein of coronaviruses that could not infect humans so they could bind to human immune systems. The stated purpose of this work was to identified viruses with pandemic potential and to create a broad-spectrum coronavirus vaccine. In many instances, the scientists were successful in creating “chimeric viruses” – or viruses created from the pieces of other viruses – that could infect human immune systems. With dangerous research like this conducted at safety levels similar to a dentist’s office, a natural or genetically modified virus could have easily escaped the lab and infected the community.
If a virus were created, it would be for a virus that had only been developed in a lab and that could not have developed naturally. Also, why would anyone need to create a vaccine for a chimeric virus? Chimeric viruses, which are a combination of two unrelated viruses, can only be created in labs. This again brings up the issue of why such research would be performed.
So while the vaccine argument does not hold water, the argument for creating bioweapons does hold water. Why China would want to obtain knowledge and funding from Western countries to develop a bioweapon makes sense, but why any Western government would be so stupid as to participate does not make sense.
Peter Daszak Was Part of the Cover Up
In this addendum, we have uncovered further evidence of how top scientists at the WIV and Dr. Peter Daszak, an American scientist, furthered that cover-up. Their actions include bullying other scientists who questioned whether the virus could have leaked from a lab; misleading the world about how a virus can be modified without leaving a trace; and, in many, instances directly lying about the nature of the research they were conducting, as well as the low-level safety protocols they were using for that research.
Yes, Peter Daszak behaves undifferentiated from a member of the CCP.
The French Defense Agencies Stated Concerns With France Helping the Chinese Develop a Level 4 Facility
In addition to the ineptitude of the US government entities and EcoHealth Alliance funding GOF in China, a secondary area of incompetence was the French government helping China develop a level 4 lab, as is explained in the following quotation.
The WNBL’s BSL-4 lab was constructed as a result of an agreement between the PRC and France that was signed after the 2003 SARS pandemic. At the time, all BSL-3 labs in the PRC were controlled by the PRC’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA). Then-President of France, Jacques Chirac, and his Prime Minister, Jean-Pierre Raffarin, approved the project despite concerns from both the French Ministry of Defense and French intelligence services – Raffarin himself described it as “a political agreement.” The PRC was suspected of having a biological warfare program, and the military and intelligence services were worried that the dual-use technology required to build a BSL- 4 lab could be misused by the PRC government. The uneasy compromise reached within the French government was that the agreement would require joint PRC-France research to be conducted in the lab, with French researchers present.
This last part where there would be joint Chinese-French research was reneged upon by the Chinese government (as per usual). The French defense and intelligence services opposed this but were overruled. This was predictable as the CCP will never keep their end of the bargain when it benefits them not to.
The Chinese Requested Bioweapons Research Equipment Under the Cover of Civilian GOF Research
In 2016, the PRC requested dozens of the containment suits required to work in the lab. The French Dual-Use Commission, tasked with considering exports of sensitive equipment, rejected their request. According to French reporting, the request was “well above the needs of the Wuhan [lab].” This continued to fuel concerns within the French Ministry of Defense that the PRC was seeking to engage in military research or open a second BSL-4 lab for military means. Despite the agreement that the BSL-4 lab would be a site of joint research, and an announcement at the 2017 inauguration by then Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve of €5 million in funding, there has only been one French scientist assigned to the lab. His tour ended in 2020.
Dr. Shi, The WIV “Batlady” Cannot Stop Lying
Dr. Shi has repeatedly denied any involvement of the PLA (People’s Liberation Army) at the WIV. During a lecture hosted only by Rutgers Medical School, Shi stated:
“We—our work, our research is open, and we have a lot of international collaboration. And from my knowledge, all our research work is open, is transparency. So, at the beginning of COVID-19, we heard the rumors that it’s claimed in our laboratory we have some project, blah blah, with army, blah blah, these kinds of rumors. But this is not correct because I am the lab’s director and responsible for research activity. I don’t know any kind of research work performed in this lab.”
This is incorrect information. This statement is demonstrably false. The WIV had multiple connections to PLA researchers prior to the COVID-19 pandemic; several were listed on the WIV’s English language website. The Academic Committee of State Key Laboratory of Virology at the WIV included a Deputy Director from the Second Military Medical University and a member from the 302 Military Hospital of China. The Scientific Advisory Committee for the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases had among its members a researcher from the Institute of Military Veterinary at the Academy of Military Medical Sciences. This website was scrubbed on May 28, 2020, and the lists of committee members removed. However, archived copies of the website are available online. This raises the obvious question of why Shi, who served on one of the committees, would lie about military researchers working with the WIV. Her denial and the scrubbing of the website appear to be obvious attempts to obfuscate the PLA’s involvement with the WIV.
And this lie.
In August 2020, after the publication of the Committee Minority Staff’s interim report, the China Global Television Network interviewed Shi about our work. In the resulting article, Shi denied that Major General Chen Wei took over the BSL-4 lab:
Liu Xin: The report actually went further and said that the lab has been taken over by the Chinese military. It says that Major General Chen Wei has succeeded Yuan Zhiming as the Director of the WIV and Chen Wei is a Chinese military medical sciences expert.
Shi Zhengli: This is a rumor; there is no such thing.
Liu Xin: You absolutely deny that the Chinese military has taken over the WIV.
Shi Zhengli: Yes, it is a rumor.
This is demonstrably false. As previously discussed, posts made on CCP-controlled forums announcing Chen’s arrival acknowledged her takeover of the lab. The report stated, “PLA Maj. Gen. Chen Wei has been in Wuhan for more than 10 days. She took over the P4 lab as if it were a ‘reassurance pill.’”
And this lie.
In a June 2021 interview, Shi told the New York Times, “my lab has never conducted or cooperated in conducting GOF experiments that enhance the virulence of viruses.”
This is a bizarre claim given the years of published research, often designed and led by Shi, that explicitly sought to make coronaviruses more infectious to humans. In the same interview, Shi lied about WIV researchers falling ill in the fall of 2019 – “The Wuhan Institute of Virology has not come across such cases.”
This is despite the State Department’s January 15th 2021 fact sheet and confirmation from a Dutch virologist on the WHO’s investigative team that several researchers were sick.
This is a constant feature of Dr. Shi in that she constantly lies and is continuously caught in her lies. Dr. Shi is brazen in that she lies about things that were easily contradicted once the House of Foreign Affairs put the effort in to examine her claims. Yet, I do not recall reading that Dr. Shi is a false information machine. Peter Daszak has a reputation as a liar that is widely known in scientific circles, but Dr. Shi continues to retain credibility.
Peter Daszak and Dr. She as False Information Machines
Since the pandemic began, Peter Daszak and Dr. Shi have been a one-two punch of lying and have communicated large quantities of false information.
Here is Daszak backing up Dr. Shi’s lies.
The annexes of the WHO’s report on the origins of COVID-19, issued in March 2021, include multiple examples of CCP disinformation that have been repeated by Daszak. This include a discussion of “conspiracy theories,” which include the lab leak hypothesis and questions regarding the possible genetically modified nature of SARS-CoV-2. It also refers to the WIV’s sequence database that was taken offline as a “rumour about missing data.”
Dr. Shi’s Likely Excuse for Lying
The CCP would not accept if Dr. Shi did not lie, and those who have not lied for the CCP have been disappeared. Therefore Dr. Shi can simply argue that she fears for her life and for the lives of her family. Therefore she cannot be held accountable for lies.
And this defense would be accurate.
For example, when the CCP puts pressure on people, they threaten them and threaten their families. However, Dr. Shi’s response also applies to all people under the control of the CCP. It applies to Chinese scientists working in the US who steal intellectual property and send it back to China. The CCP uses the fact their families are still back in China to coerce them (not that all of them need to be coerced.) Nothing CCP controlled scientists or other individuals matters or is reliable as it is all whatever the CCP wants them to say.
- As Dr. Shi is a demonstrated constant liar, as is Peter Daszak. Why were over a hundred million dollars of US government funding given to people it was easy to determine constantly lie?
- The CCP is also constantly lying. Why would the US fund any research, much less dangerous research with bioweapons dual-use in China?
Visits to Hospitals Around the WIV Spiked At the Beginning of the Outbreak in Dec 2019
The location of the outbreak does not match the CCP claim that it was around the wet market in Wuhan.
When people get sick, they are likely to seek healthcare near their home or work. Each of the hospitals that saw a rise in traffic with patients complaining of COVID-19 symptoms are located within 6.5 miles of the WIV Headquarters and are connected by public transit lines. Around the time the WIV’s virus database went offline, car traffic at hospitals in downtown Wuhan began to increase. Researchers from Boston University School of Public Health, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Harvard Medical School used satellite imagery to examine parking lot volume of hospitals in Wuhan for the two and a half years prior to December 2019. They found that five of six hospitals analyzed had the highest relative daily volume of cars in the parking lot in September and October 2019, before the first reported cases of COVID-19.
This quote is the first time I have seen this information about the analysis performed by US entities that geographically isolated the epicenter of the contagion.
The CCP Lied About Wuhan Being Under Lockdown During the International Military Sports Council Military World Games in 2019
This quote provides more information that has not been publicized but is utterly damning evidence of a cover-up.
The PRC government recruited 236,000 volunteers for the games, which required 90 hotels, three railroad stations, and more than 2,000 drivers. An archived version of the competition’s website from October 20, 2019, lists the more than thirty venues that hosted events for the MWGs across Wuhan and the broader Hubei province. The live website is no longer accessible – it is unclear why it was removed. During the games, many of the international athletes became sick with what now appear to be symptoms of COVID-19. In one interview, an athlete from Luxembourg described Wuhan as a “ghost town,” and recalls having his temperature taken upon arriving at the city’s airport. In an interview with The Financial Post, a Canadian newspaper, one member of the Canadian Armed Forces who participated in the games said:
This was a city of 15 million people that was in lockdown. It was strange, but we were told this was to make it easy for the Games’ participants to get around. [I got] very sick 12 days after we arrived, with fever, chills, vomiting, insomnia.… On our flight to come home, 60 Canadian athletes on the flight were put in isolation [at the back of the plane] for the 12-hour flight. We were sick with symptoms ranging from coughs to diarrhea and in between.
The CCP knew it had an epidemic and could have canceled the games and not allowed the athletes from around the world to come. However, they decided “the games must go on.”
- The CCP is criminally negligent for allowing the games to go forward.
- A great deal of spreading of the virus occurred from these games, as is covered in the following quotation.
..the 2019 Military World Games in Wuhan appears to be a key vector in the global spread – it other words, potentially one of the first “super spreader” events.
Dr. Shi Helped the CCP Cover Up the Virus
As the following quote explains, Dr. Shi, along with the CCP, did everything in their power to keep the rest of the world in the dark about the spreading coronavirus.
It is highly unlikely Shi and her coauthors would have written this paper the same day they submitted it, meaning they were aware for days or perhaps weeks that the virus was spreading via from human-to-human transmission and did not alert the world. According to a study by researchers at the University of Southampton, implementing appropriate restrictions based on human-to-human transmission just one week before this paper was published would have reduced the number of cases in Wuhan by 66%.
A close examination of the paper, and the corrections published months later, reveal inconsistences in the researchers’ claims. Several of the statements made in the above quotation are simply false. After months of criticism and questioning about RaTG13, Shi and the other researchers were forced to publish an addendum on November 17, 2020.
The inability of outside researchers to verify the genome of RaTG13, and the above efforts to obfuscate when the WIV collected and sequenced RaTG13, raises multiple questions: Why leave out of the February 2020 article that the virus sequence was renamed? Why lie about when the full-length sequence was obtained? Why only issue a correction almost ten months later? Why was this sample destroyed via testing when others weren’t?
A Lab Working on Infecting Humans With Bat Corona Viruses
To reiterate, WIV researchers created chimeric coronaviruses able to infect humans in 2017, before the WNBL BSL-4 lab became operational. This work was jointly funded by NIAID (no. R01AI110964), USAID’s PREDICT program, and the PRC government (including grant no. 2013FY113500).
Research by Shi and others at the WIV on how to alter the spike protein of non-infectious SARS-like coronaviruses so that they can bind to human ACE2 receptors; Repeated collaboration between Shi, Hu, Daszak, Wang, and other researchers on genetically manipulating coronaviruses to increase their infectiousness in humans; A new PRC Strategic Priority Research Program, run by Shi, that was actively manufacturing chimeric viruses in BSL-2 and BSL-3 conditions and seeking out novel viruses; Evidence of ongoing collaboration between Shi and the other scientists who first isolated a live coronavirus in 2013; A second grant awarded to Hu to test novel coronaviruses against human immune systems in BSL-2 and BSL-3 conditions; A stated effort to develop a broad-spectrum coronavirus vaccine.
Here is the ridiculous claim again. The stated goal is to create a vaccine — for a virus that could never develop outside of a lab. They cannot apply for funding under the logic of creating a bioweapon, so of course, it must be to fight against a virus.
Covid 19 Is Remarkably Good At Doing Exactly What Dr. Shi, Daszak, and the WIV Were Manipulating Viruses to Do
The highly contagious nature of SARS-CoV-2 has been a hot topic of conversation since the virus began to spread around the world. Some scientists and other experts point to the incredibly high case numbers as evidence that SARS-CoV-2 is inherently different from known natural betacoronaviruses. For example, MERS first appeared in 2012 and has infected less than 4,000 people. SARS first appeared in 2002 and infected less than 10,000. At the time of writing, less than two years from when it has first appeared, SARS-CoV-2 has infected more than 196.4 million people.
SARS-CoV-2 also has a highly unusual affinity for binding to human ACE2 receptors over other hosts. In February 2020, American researchers examined this issue closely. They found that SARSCoV- 2’s spike protein “binds at least 10 times more tightly than the corresponding spike protein of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)–CoV to their common host cell receptor.” In other words, SARS-CoV-2 binds more than 10 times more tightly to human ACE2 than the virus that causes SARS. The researchers found this likely explains why the virus is so contagious.
This topic requires getting into corona’s spike protein, which will be covered in more detail further in the article.
A Virus Uniquely Adept at Infecting Humans?
Australian and British researchers also examined how SARS-CoV-2 binds to the ACE2 of various animals, publishing their research in Scientific Reports on June 24, 2021. The scientists found that SARS-CoV-2’s spike protein binds the strongest to human ACE2. They reported:
“This finding was surprising as a zoonotic virus typically exhibits the highest affinity initially for its original host species, with lower initial affinity to receptors of new host species until it adapts. As the virus adapts to its new host, mutations are acquired that increase the binding affinity for the new host receptor. Since our binding calculations were based on SARS-CoV-2 samples isolated in China from December 2019, at the very onset of the outbreak, the extremely high affinity of S protein for human ACE2 was unexpected.”
The first preprint version of this paper went further, concluding,
“the data indicates that SARS-CoV- 2 is uniquely adapted to infect humans, raising important questions as to whether it arose in nature by a rare chance event or whether its origins might lie elsewhere” emphasis added. This research provides evidence that SARS-CoV-2 is uniquely well adapted to humans, suggesting a non-zoonotic source of the outbreak.
It is curious how the language changed in the earlier draft of the article. The article directly questions how such a virus that is so adapted to bind to humans could have arisen naturally. Why would a naturally occurring bat virus bind better to humans than to any other mammal?
- Why would it be uniquely adept at spreading among humans?
- Humans do not usually have very much interaction with bats. They are not touched by bats or bitten by bats. There is no selection pressure to cause a natural evolution of a coronavirus to bind to human cells uniquely. It is illogical or impossible that such a virus would naturally evolve in the wild. Let us review that point again. The coronavirus or C19 can’t have not been made in a lab.
The Feature of Covid 19 That Makes it Spread So Easily Among Humans
One of the most discussed questions centers around the furin cleavage site (FCS) of SARS-CoV-2. The FCS is part of the virus’ spike protein, which enables it to bind to and enter human cells. In February 2020, French and Canadian scientists reported SARS-CoV-2 contains an FCS that is absent in other coronaviruses of the same clade, or branch of viruses believed to have a similar common ancestor.
Yes, the furin cleavage site does not come from the coronavirus family. Furin is common in human lung and nasal tissue, as is explained in the following video.
Do you recall earlier where the WIV discussed creating a “chimeric virus?” That is where you combine take attributes of one virus and insert them into another virus. Furin cleavage sites are routinely added to viruses to see if they can bind to humans.
WIV Lied About Having the Precursor Virus to SARS CoV-2
If SARS-CoV-2 was genetically modified, this could represent a viable model for how. RaTG13’s RBD, or full spike protein, could be replaced using the WIV’s reverse genetic system.
If one of the many unpublished coronaviruses in the WIV’s possession was modified, and the resulting chimeric virus was then exposed to hACE2 expressing mice or civets, the resulting virus could become better adapted to infecting humans – just like SARS-CoV-2. According to scientists – including those working at the WIV – ID4991/RaTG13 is more closely related to SARS-CoV-2 than any other publicly identified virus.
It’s now clear WIV researchers had this virus as early as 2013, several years before the WIV began genetically modifying other coronaviruses found in the wild.
Given the largest difference between RaTG13 and SARS-CoV-2 is at the spike protein – precisely where the WIV modified various coronaviruses for years – and that WIV researchers renamed the virus and lied about when they sequenced, ID4991/RaTG13 could be a source of genetic material if SARS-CoV-2 was indeed genetically modified.
To emphasize, the WIV had a nearly identical virus to SARS-CoV-2 and modified it to spread to humans very easily. This was done at the spike protein. More about the spike protein is explained in the following quote.
The spike protein is located on the outside of a coronavirus and is how SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus) enters human cells. Its location on the outside of the virus. – Nebraska Medicine
The spike proteins are what gives the coronavirus its name. It looks like a crown or “corona” if one looks at a crown from the top.
This issue with the precursor RaTG13 virus is explained in the following quotation.
In all the discussions of the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic, enormous scientific attention has been paid to the molecular character of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, including its novel genome sequence in comparison with its near relatives. In stark contrast, virtually no attention has been paid to the physical provenance of those nearest genetic relatives, its presumptive ancestors, which are two viral sequences named BtCoV/4991 and RaTG13. BtCoV/4991 and RaTG13 were collected from a mineshaft in Yunnan province, China, in 2012/2013 by researchers from the lab of Zheng-li Shi at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. – Independent Science News
The WIV — Helping the World by Increasing the Transmissibility of a Coronavirus to Humans?
The spike protein is precisely what the WIV team was working on making bind to humans and what the CCP and WIV have covered up, as explained in the following quotation again from the US House of Foreign Affairs report.
A December 12, 2017, interview with Hu was pulled offline after it began circulating on Twitter. In the article, Hu discusses monitoring and collecting samples from the bat cave in Yunnan and his work using the reverse genetic system to insert spike proteins into live coronaviruses. Interestingly, he discusses how Shi Zheng-li “often personally leads the team to take samples.” It is likely that this article was pulled down for drawing attention to the cave where RaTG13 was collected.
House on Foreign Affairs Recommendations
Foreign governments considering entering into bilateral agreements with the PRC are advised to be aware that based on the information presented within this report, the PRC conducts scientific research without regard for adequate safety protocols in place, in a manner that does not comport with international safety standards, and without adequate assessment of the risks scientific research may pose to the environment, test subjects, or humanity. It is the recommendation of the Committee Minority Staff that such agreements be avoided.
Until such time as the Chinese Communist Party lifts its self-imposed veil of secrecy, explains its lies regarding the early stages of the pandemic, and provides access to the WIV’s archives and sample database, questions will remain as to the origins of SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Until that day, it is incumbent upon the United States and likeminded countries around the world to ensure accountability, and implement the reforms necessary to prevent the CCP’s malfeasance from giving rise to a third pandemic during the 21st century.
There is so much more material in the report that is incriminating to the CCP and WIV and many US government agencies that funded the GOF research than I included in this article. Reading the report and processing it, it took me several days.
The report is excellent and thorough in how it supports all of its claims with evidence. It brings a whole host of areas of evidence that you can be sure the mainstream media will not address and that they and the interested parties do not want to be generally known.
All parties involved with the disaster of creating the coronavirus in a lab do not want anyone to read this report. And this includes people that are continuing to develop US coronavirus policy, like Dr. Fauci. The DOD, USAID, the Department of Health and Human Services, and several other US government departments do not want their involvement in funding the creation of coronavirus known. They, much like the CCP and the WIV and Peter Dazsak, also want anyone who follows the chain of evidence to be labeled as a conspiracy theorist. However, now the US House of Foreign Affairs must be added to that list of “crazed conspiracy theorists.”
Finally, everything in the report that I had previous knowledge of matched my previous research.
