    The BBC and the Associated Press (AP) recently reported that Chinese authorities prevented their journalists from visiting mineshafts and bat caves in China’s Yunnan Province, where a team of Chinese scientists conducted research on the source of the CCP virus, which sparked the COVID-19 pandemic.Meanwhile, the World Health Organization will send a team of scientists to China this month to investigate the origin of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, known by the scientific name SARS-CoV-2. But the international community has questioned WHO’s role in enabling the Chinese regime to conceal the spread of the virus in the early stages...

    As the World Health Organization and other China puppets struggle to assemble a 'natural origin' theory for COVID-19, the CCP has been going to great lengths to quash non-sanctioned investigations that may instead point to a lab escape from research facilities which made international headlines in 2015 for dangerous 'gain-of-function' research - by which they were manipulating coronaviruses to better infect humans.'Batwoman' Shi Zhengli, known for bioengineering bat coronaviruses, was criticized over dangerous 'gain-of-function' experimentsAnd while mainstream news outlets spent the better part of 2019 flatly rejecting lab-origin evidence as 'debunked conspiracy theories' - which earned ZeroHedge a temporary Twitter...

    Christian Post ^ | 12/12/2020 | John Stonestreet and G. Shane Morris
    Several years ago, in a documentary called “Religulous” (clever, right?), Bill Maher claimed that most of the story of Christ, especially the parts about His birth, were cribbed from pagan mythology. After all, Maher claimed, the Egyptian God Horus was born of a virgin on December 25th, was baptized, had twelve disciples, performed miracles, and ultimately died and rose again. Christianity, said Maher, is nothing but a cheap knockoff. The problem is, as numerous critics have pointed out, Maher’s claims are complete nonsense. No original source material backs up his description of Horus or, for that matter, of Mithras or...

    The Chinese communist regime recently began another propaganda blitz to claim that the COVID-19 pandemic originated in other countries, misquoting scientists and their research. Some experts have since publicly rejected such claims and questioned the regime’s motives.Misquoting European Scientists’ ResearchOn Dec. 2, English-language state-run newspaper China Daily cited research from the National Cancer Institute in Milan, Italy, to claim that COVID-19 infections likely appeared in Italy in September 2019, before the outbreak in China.In an interview with Radio Free Asia (RFA) published on Dec. 7, Giovanni Apolone, the institute’s scientific director, responded to the China Daily claim, pointing out that...
  • Coronavirus hunters pick up another piece of the trail in Italy: New research suggests the pathogen infected people across the country months before it was detected in China

    The virus that causes the Covid-19 disease has now infected more than 54 million people across the planet, but the question of just where it came from remains a mystery. Researchers may have found a new link in this puzzle after discovering evidence suggesting the pathogen had infected people across Italy as early as September last year, or months before it was first identified in the Chinese city of Wuhan. The unexpected finding “may reshape the history of [the] pandemic”, said the team led by Dr Gabriella Sozzi, a life scientist with the National Cancer Institute of Milan, in a...
  • Why I Think The Wuhan Virus Was Likely Man-Made But Escaped By Accident: A suspicious gene sequence, the location of the COVID-19 epicenter, lab funding, and missing scientists

    The Federalist ^ | 10/13/2020 | David Willhite
    Chinese scientist Li-Meng Yan recently published a paper claiming SARS-COV-2 was engineered in a Wuhan lab and released intentionally. Several other papers have emerged on the origin of the novel coronavirus, with some claiming the origin was natural. Online rebuttals to Yan’s work have also come out, including one recently featured in The Federalist, which took a skeptical tone to Yan’s claims.If we want to engineer a virus, we manipulate the biological sequence. A sequence means the order in which the basic biological “letters” occur, and this order determines the function or purpose of the sequence, just as the...

    Guest post by Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.)There may be some culpability involved, but the huge resistance being mounted by the international scientific elite, the media and vested financial interests against conducting an objective analysis of the origin of the COVID-19 virus is primarily about money. If it would be determined that the COVID-19 pandemic resulted from a laboratory leak of a genetically engineered virus, it would not only disrupt the flow of huge sums of research funding, but adversely affect the investments of those vehemently opposed to President Donald Trump’s efforts to make the U.S. economy less dependent on...

    After nearly one year, questions remain unanswered about whether the Chinese coronavirus was natural or man-made and whether its release into the world was accidental or malicious.Chinese scientist Li-Meng Yan has stirred up media attention with her claim that the coronavirus connected with COVID-19 is the result of Chinese bioengineering. SheÂ’s been saying this for a while, but the renewed attention follows a paper she and her coauthors uploaded to a public research repository. Tucker Carlson recently interviewed her on his popular Fox News show, where she went so far as to claim that Chinese authorities not only created...
  • Coronavirus is 'uniquely adapted to infect humans': Top Australian vaccine scientist says it could only have come from an animal through a 'freak of nature'

    Daily Mail ^ | By IAN BIRRELL
    A team of scientists has produced evidence that the pandemic virus is ‘uniquely adapted to infect humans’, raising fresh questions over whether its origins were natural or could have occurred in a laboratory. Professor Nikolai Petrovsky, a top vaccine researcher who headed the Australian team, said the virus was ‘not typical of a normal zoonotic [animal to human] infection’ since it appeared with the ‘exceptional’ ability to enter human bodies from day one. He said the virus should have emerged from an animal through ‘a freak event of nature’ but the possibility that it had leaked from a laboratory could...

    To date, no one has stated the urgent universal need to aggressively investigate the true origin of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19, better than Karl and Dan Sirotkin in their August 12, 2020 article “Might SARS‐CoV‐2 Have Arisen via Serial Passage through an Animal Host or Cell Culture?” “Despite claims from prominent scientists that SARS‐CoV‐2 indubitably emerged naturally, the etiology of this novel coronavirus remains a pressing and open question: Without knowing the true nature of a disease, it is impossible for clinicians to appropriately shape their care, for policy‐makers to correctly gauge the nature and extent of the...

    Ever since its outbreak in Wuhan, China back in December of 2019, scientists have been trying to look into the origins of COVID-19 with several theories as to where the virus came from. According to a leading scientist, the virus that is COVID-19 reportedly came from a military lab and not from a wet market. Express reports Dr. Li Meng Yan, a virologist at Hong Kong’s School of Public Health, who went to the United States, claimed that the coronavirus strain that is currently plaguing the world today actually came from a military lab in China. Speaking on a live...

    American Thinker ^ | 07/24/2020 | By Mark Andrew Dwyer
    Could the coronavirus that caused the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic evolve naturally?  Based on what is publicly known at this time, it probably could, but there is no scientific evidence that it actually has.  As of today, no animal has been found to carry the coronavirus that infected Chinese individuals in Wuhan with COVID-19 in the fall of 2019.  Yet the mass media and their so-called "fact-checkers" keep propagating the unproven speculation that the virus did not leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, as if it were some kind of "settled science." A Washington Post article titled "State Department releases...
  • On the origin of the new Coronavirus; the “Wuhan wet market” hypothesis and the pangolin hypothesis have already been ruled out by experts.

    07/15/2020 9:07:36 AM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 37 replies
    On the origin of the new coronavirus In the June update it was shown that renowned virologists consider a laboratory origin of the new coronavirus to be “at least as plausible” as a natural origin. This is due to some genetic peculiarities of the virus in the area of receptor binding, which lead to particularly high transmissibility and infectivity in humans.In the meantime, further evidence for this hypothesis has emerged. It was already known that the virus most closely related to SARS-CoV-2 was found in 2013 in southwest China. This bat corona virus was discovered by researchers from the Wuhan...

    Guest post by Dr. Lawrence Sellin, Ph.D.After six months of exhaustive investigation, the global scientific community has been unable to identify the natural source of COVID-19, that is, the when, where and how it “jumped” from animals to humans. Some now imply that we may never know the natural origin of COVID-19.In a news article recently published by the international science journal Nature, the progress, or lack thereof, identifying the natural source of COVID-19 was reviewed. According to the article, COVID-19 probably originated in bats, specifically horseshoe bats, which host two closely related coronaviruses, named RaTG13 and RmYN02, whose...

    Townhall ^ | 06/17/2020 | Betsy McCaughey
    China is determined to block investigations of where COVID-19 came from. But worse, influential American scientists are going along with censoring any inquiry. They're declaring their "solidarity with the scientists and health professionals of China." That's a deadly problem. Conquering this virus and devising a vaccine will require unbiased research, no matter where it leads. The best weapon to fight this virus is the truth. The biggest mistake is to limit scientific inquiry and pander to China. We need scientists to be scientists, not political censors. When Australia called for a formal inquiry into the pandemic's origins, China explicitly threatened...

    The Wall Street Journal has published a piece today which highlights China’s conspicuous silence about its ongoing investigation into the origin of the coronavirus. This has been a sort of slow-motion story happening in the background for several months. As time passes, it is getting harder and harder to explain China’s reluctance to pin down where the virus originated. Around 1 a.m. on Dec. 31, Lu Junqing woke to a phone call from his boss at a local disinfection company. Get a team together and head to the Huanan market, he was told: “Bring your best kit.”Mr. Lu knew...

    China will not invite international experts to investigate the source of Covid-19 until after securing the "final victory" over the virus, Beijing's UN ambassador in Geneva said Wednesday despite mounting calls for an independent probe into China’s handling of the outbreak. China's priority is first beating the pandemic -- and then countering what Chen Xu called the "absurd and ridiculous" US politicisation of the coronavirus crisis, he added in an online press briefing. The World Health Organisation (WHO) says it is waiting on an invitation from China to take part in its investigations into the animal origins of the virus,...

    U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said statements by senior officials about the origins of the CCP virus are “entirely consistent,” rejecting allegations that there were conflicting opinions within the administration about where it came from. “Every one of those statements is entirely consistent,” he said at a May 6 press conference. “Lay them down together, there is no separation. We are all trying to figure out the right answer. We are all trying to get the clarity. There are different levels of certainty assessed at different places. That’s highly appropriate.” He added that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark...

    China has refused repeated requests by the World Health Organisation to take part in investigations into the origins of COVID-19, the WHO representative in China has told Sky News. "We know that some national investigation is happening but at this stage we have not been invited to join," Dr Gauden Galea said. "WHO is making requests of the health commission and of the authorities," he said. "The origins of virus are very important, the animal-human interface is extremely important and needs to be studied. "The priority is we need to know as much as possible to prevent the reoccurrence." Asked...

    After spending weeks attempting to obscure the origin of the coronavirus, the government of China has now issued an order that all research papers on the topic must pass through China’s Education Ministry before they can be submitted to journals. The directive was supposed to remain quiet but was published online by at least two Chinese Universities. The increased scrutiny appears to be the latest effort by the Chinese government to control the narrative on the origins of the coronavirus pandemic, which has claimed more than 100,000 lives and sickened 1.7 million people worldwide since it first broke out...
