Novel Coronavirus Origin

Novel Coronavirus Origin

 



I love the title of this article from "The Scientist":Theory That Coronavirus Escaped From A Lab Lacks Evidence

"The Scientist" willfully ignores the fact that the official story that SARS-CoV-2 came from a Wuhan market is immensely more lacking in evidence.

The National Institute of Health in the United States gave $3.7 million to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for the study of bat coronavirus.

This research was outsourced to the Wuhan lab because the study of such pathogens had been banned in the US. The person behind the grant was Dr. Anthony Fauci, who was at the time the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). He is still the Director of the NIAID, but he now also leads the US COVID19 Task Force (fox meet hen house).

As early as 1-19-2018 the US State Department knew that there were serious issues with the lab:
“During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory,” states the Jan. 19, 2018, cable, which was drafted by two officials from the embassy’s environment, science and health sections who met with the WIV scientists. (The State Department declined to comment on this and other details of the story.)

The Chinese researchers at WIV were receiving assistance from the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch and other U.S. organizations, but the Chinese requested additional help. The cables argued that the United States should give the Wuhan lab further support, mainly because its research on bat coronaviruses was important but also dangerous.

As the cable noted, the U.S. visitors met with Shi Zhengli, the head of the research project, who had been publishing studies related to bat coronaviruses for many years. In November 2017, just before the U.S. officials’ visit, Shi’s team had published research showing that horseshoe bats they had collected from a cave in Yunnan province were very likely from the same bat population that spawned the SARS coronavirus in 2003.
The fact that bat coronavirus was being studied at WIV cannot be denied. The fact that Fauci funded the research cannot be denied. The fact that the US was aware of serious issues with the lab more than one year prior to the outbreak cannot be denied. 

Yet

Fauci is on TV every day for months now and he never breaths a word about the research he funded.

Trump is on TV and Twitter constantly and he never breaths a word about it either.

But both of them and all of the Democrats and China and the WHO are pushing vaccines. Funny the things that these supposed enemies can all agree on, don't you think?

In Fauci's defense I am increasingly convinced that he is a prime example of the Peter Principle that we hear about so often with US government employees. He's just a know nothing patsy signing things and he has know idea what they mean or where it all leads. Whatever talent he had petered out a long time ago and now he spends his days collecting fat checks and making statements that he reverses three days later.


Botao Xiao


In February 2020 Botao Xiao, research scientist at South China University of Technology, released a report detailing his investigation of the possible origins of the SARS-CoV-2. Botao Xiao found no bats of the species in question at the Wuhan market:
The bats carrying CoV ZC45 were originally found in Yunnan or Zhejiang province, both of which were more than 900 kilometers away from the seafood market.
According to municipal reports and the testimonies of 31 residents and 28 visitors, the bat was never a food source in the city, and no bat was traded in the market. There was possible natural recombination or intermediate host of the coronavirus,yet little proof has been reported.
Two points from this paragraph that we must understand:
1. According to witnesses and the researcher, the horseshoe bat, which is the reservoir of the virus, was not to be found in the Wuhan market and there was no natural habitat within 900 km.
2. "possible natural recombination or intermediate host of the coronavirus"  meaning there is possibly some animal acting as an intermediary vector between the bat and humans.  They tell us that this animal is unknown, but I doubt this. Someone knows and this may be the key to breaking open the mystery here.
If the bats were not from the market, as we had been told by the media, then where did they come from? Botao Xiao found that the Wuhan Center for Disease Control & Prevention (WHCDC) was less than 280 meters from the market. A second lab is roughly 12 kilometers from the market. Both labs were studying Rhinolophus affinis (the horseshoe bat) at the time of the outbreak and both labs had serious contamination risk issues according to Botao Xiao. The second lab was the Wuhan Institute of Virology that the NIH had funded and that the US State Department had warned about.

Botao Xiao's report can be found on the web and I have also made it available because such things tend to disappear.

But killer viruses escaping labs is crazy conspiracy theory garbage, right? 


Recall the SARS outbreak in 2004? It was released from a Chinese lab and was the result of negligence:
Two of those infected worked with the virus in the CDC's National Institute of Virology in Beijing.Official investigation shows that it is an accident due to negligence.The cases had been linked to experiments using live and inactive SARS corona virus in the CDC's virology and diarrhea institutes where interdisciplinary research on the SARS virus was conducted.The CDC's mistakes also include allowing researchers to experiment with biological materials infected with SARS in common laboratories, and the failure to immediately report the abnormal health conditions of its researchers. 
So why now are we being told that the idea is crazy this time around when all of the available evidence cries out otherwise? We should keep our eyes peeled for heads to be rolling out of those two Wuhan labs.

This is insanity. The US government under Barack Obama deemed the study of pathogens, such as SARS-CoV, to be too dangerous to be undertaken within the continental United States. Yet, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the NIH funded this same research in China placing that population at great risk. This is criminal. Do we really trust these double-faced tricksters to tell us the truth about what is happening now and how to protect ourselves when it is THEY who may have caused all of this? We are being told to "trust the scientists," but is that really wise in light of their negligence, arrogance and lies?

And what of the Wuhan markets that we were told are the source of SARS-CoV-2?  

They are still operating.

But it does not matter that they are, since they had nothing to do with causing the outbreak.

There is another possibility: an unknown party who was aware of the State Department cables, had access to SARS-COV-2 and had a motive to release it. The labs may not have been involved at all. This could have been an act of terrorism. But that option has no evidentiary support, like the market story. The circumstantial evidence all points to the labs, as does precedent.

Australia has called for an independent inquiry into the origin of the virus and was met by China with a threat of economic boycott. Does that sound like the action of an innocent party? The world is to just move on and not ask questions? Seems like China has become too accustomed to thinking that they can just make people and bad press disappear.

This pathogen came from a Chinese lab. China knew exactly what it was from the start. This makes China's statements early on that it was not human-to-human transmissible a far more heinous lie. 

UPDATE 4-30-2020

We keep hearing the same talking heads repeating the same refrain on all of the Big Pharma connected media outlets "we know SARS-CoV-2 was not made in a lab because blah blah blah...." But it is possible for the virus to have been modified without leaving any of the tell tale evidence:
If you hear anyone claim “we know the virus didn’t come from a lab”, don’t buy it — it may well have. Labs around the globe have been creating synthetic viruses like CoV2 for years. And no, its genome would not necessarily contain hallmarks of human manipulation: modern genetic engineering tools permit cutting and pasting genomic fragments without leaving a trace. It can be done quickly, too: it took a Texas BSL4 lab less than 2 months to create a synthetic clone of CoV2.
And those who are making the claim that there would be evidence of genomic manipulation are knowingly omitting another possibility. Viruses can gain function by passing through a host and we saw earlier that science is already aware that SARS-CoV-2 probably has a host between bats and people. This process is routinely done in the laboratory. Researchers will pass a virus through various hosts to determine if any "useful" gain-of-function can be obtained. And if TSHTF they can just claim that nature did it. This is precisely the route that would be taken if researchers are deliberately attempting to evade efforts to trace the origin of a virus to a lab that engineered it.

But this takes us back to my comment before about the identity of the intermediary host possibly being the key here. We already know that there were no horseshoe bats to be found anywhere in Wuhan outside of the two labs that were studying them. That is damning enough. But when it is known that the as yet unknown intermediate host is also exotic to Wuhan then the final nail in the coffin of lies will have been hammered flat.

A side note to this crazy conspiracy theory is that Shi Zhengli is in charge of the research at the WIV. And her specialization? Gain-of-function in the coronavirus.

The other possibility is that there was no gain-of-function or lab manipulation at all. Perhaps it was not "made in a lab" and was only mishandled by the lab that was studying it, as has been done before with bat coronavirus in China. That would technically make all of the talking heads not liars unless you count what is not being said as a lie of omission.

If anyone out there has evidence supporting the official story or countering what is posted above I would love to see it.



UPDATE 5-1-2020

Chinese Researchers Suspect Patient Zero Had No Contact With Wuhan Market
A study by Chinese researchers claimed the first person to be diagnosed with COVID-19 was identified on December 1, 2019 and that person had "no contact" with the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market.

Wu Wenjuan, a senior doctor at Wuhan's Jinyintan Hospital and one of the authors of the study, told the BBC Chinese Service that the patient was an elderly man who suffered from Alzheimer's disease.

"He lived four or five buses from the seafood market, and because he was sick he basically didn't go out," she said.

Again, those decrying this conspiracy theory! Need to put up or shut up. These Chinese researchers are not Trump donors. Let's see your evidence. Send it to me. Cursing comments are not evidence, but since that is all that you have I will not bother posting it as we all learned to curse in elementary school and your talking points bring nothing new to the table.

UPDATE 5-3-2020

I saw Fareed Zakaria in CNN and he is repeating the same lies as the rest of his ilk. Zakaria stated "All of the scientists I have talked to are of the consensus that the virus originated in a Wuhan wet market." Zakaria is either a liar or the stupidist man on earth. He is supposedly a journalist and you would think that critical thinking is a desired skill for one of those, but Zakaria does not seem to have it. He keeps repeating that all the scientists agree, but he never points to any damned evidence. I will issue a challenge right now to him. Show a scrap of evidence. I bet he cannot even name a single name of any "scientist" that he is speaking of. I gave you the evidence above for it coming from a lab. It is circumstantial, but it is a hell of a lot more than the evidence for the wet market story. And the greatest evidence against the virus originating in a wet market is the fact that they are still operating. 

You are what you eat. Therefore, Zakaria must eat mockingbirds every day. I wonder if he knows it.

I will just say it. Zakaria is spewing his talking points because the research at the Wuhan lab was funded under the Obama administration and CNN is a lie factory for the left side of the dialectic. 

Zakaria is now running extended programs on CNN where he does blame China for "mistakes" it made in handling the out break, but he continues to push the wet market red herring as the origin of the virus. You'll never hear a word from him about the NIH funding the coronavirus research in Wuhan. It's like Chris Cuomo denigrating hydroxychloroquine when he himself took quinine and his brother purchased 70,000 doses of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 treatment. These people are shameless liars and hypocrites with no conscience. 

UPDATE 5-9-2020

Germany pours cold water on Chinese denial.
The World Health Organization denied reports on Saturday by German magazine Der Spiegel that Chinese President Xi Jingping had asked Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to cover up news about the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan.

On January 21, Xi reportedly asked Tedros not to announce that the virus could be transmitted between humans and to delay any declaration of a pandemic, the German intelligence agency BND found.
The BND concluded that the delay caused the world to waste four to six weeks it could have used better preparing to fight the outbreak. The WHO did not end up declaring the virus an international emergency until the end of January. (Jerusalem Post)
Pandemic Bonds looking more and more like ponzi scheme:
“The whole mechanism is highly unfortunate. The objectives were to help the poorest countries respond quickly to outbreaks. Infectious disease spreads exponentially and the coronavirus has a very rapid growth rate. But the bonds only get triggered when the disease has spread for a long time.”

“so convoluted, it is not at all clear whether they will pay out at all. It is too little, too late – and in this case, maybe never."

“What’s obscene is that the World Bank set it up this way. It waits for people to die.”
But critics say the “insanely complicated” terms of the high-interest bonds are heavily skewed towards investors, while for the victims any payouts may come too late, if at all. (The Guardian)
In the story from JPost we are told that Xi asked China to delay declaration of pandemic. This plays into the bond story, because bonds do not pay out unless pandemic is declared. 

Pandemic Bonds Fail

Pandemic Bonds Investors Face Big Losses

I am wondering if the delay in declaration of pandemic was held up by the investors? Is Xi's alleged request to delay declaring a pandemic connected? Xi and the bond investors both benefit from the delay. Who are these people? I need a list of names. Was it wiped from the server yet?

According to DW, the Class A and B bonds were set to pay out rates of 7% and 11% (respectively) in July 2020.


missed it by that much!

UPDATE 6-6-2020

 

The Lancet study that was being touted globally as a death knell  for hydroxychloroquine has been exposed as a deception! 

Lancet has issued a complete retraction:
After publication of our Lancet Article, several concerns were raised with respect to the veracity of the data and analyses conducted by Surgisphere Corporation and its founder and our co-author, Sapan Desai, in our publication. We launched an independent third party peer review of Surgisphere with the consent of Sapan Desai to evaluate the origination of the database elements, to confirm the completeness of the database, and to replicate the analyses presented in the paper.
Our independent peer reviewers informed us that Surgisphere would not transfer the full dataset, client contracts, and the full ISO audit report to their servers for analysis as such transfer would violate client agreements and confidentiality requirements. As such, our reviewers were not able to conduct an independent and private peer review and therefore notified us of their withdrawal from the peer-review process.
We always aspire to perform our research in accordance with the highest ethical and professional guidelines. We can never forget the responsibility we have as researchers to scrupulously ensure that we rely on data sources that adhere to our high standards. Based on this development, we can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources. Due to this unfortunate development, the authors request that the paper be retracted.
We all entered this collaboration to contribute in good faith and at a time of great need during the COVID-19 pandemic. We deeply apologise to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused. 
The study was rigged. It was just a hit piece to sink cheap and effective hydroxychloroquine.

And what was the motivation? 

Money. Hydroxychloroquine is off patent and very cheap. 

Who stood to benefit from the specious study?
In light of these studies, the World Health Organization decided to halt global trials of the drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to treat COVID-19 in order to focus on novel drugs like Gilead's remdesivir. After the studies were retracted, the WHO trials were resumed.
