Ground Zero infection at the Wuhan laboratory

Must read


Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) laboratory appears to be Ground Zero for SARS-CoV-2 infection, according to a paper trail left by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) itself and explored in the video above. Its author, who has lived in China for 10 years and is fluent in Chinese, said it was not so much a theory as a revelation of publicly available information he encountered.

One of his first suspicions arose from a job posting published on November 18, 2019 by WIV, looking for someone to research the relationship between the coronavirus and bats and, in particular, how them bats can carry coronavirus but still live a long time. Another job posting at WIV, published on December 24, 2019, suggested that they had discovered a “new and terrible virus” and were recruiting people to come and deal with it.

‘Bat Woman’ researcher may have been patient zero

After delving into the staff of WIV, the author highlights Shi Zhengli, Ph.D., the director of the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases of WIV, also known as the “batwoman”. She has been studying viruses transmitted by bats since 2004, including SARS-type coronaviruses.

According to the World Society of Virology, “one of his great contributions is to discover genetically diverse coronaviruses like SARS in bats with his international collaborators and to provide unequivocal evidence that bats are natural reservoirs of SARS-CoV.1

In his book “China COVID-19: The Chimera That Changed the World”,2 Professor Giuseppe Tritto – president of the World Academy of Biomedical Sciences and Technologies, founded under the auspices of UNESCO, and internationally recognized expert in bio and nanotechnology – accuses Shi of producing a SARS-like virus with increased pathogenicity in inserting a segment of the HIV virus into a horseshoe bat coronavirus.3

Chinese officials also recently deleted some 300 coronavirus studies, including all articles published by Shi. A fact sheet released on January 15, 2021 by the US State Department, but which has since been archived, questions WIV’s research on bats and other coronaviruses prior to the COVID-19 outbreak:4

“The US government has reason to believe that several WIV researchers fell ill in the fall of 2019, before the first identified case of the epidemic, with symptoms compatible with both COVID-19 and common seasonal illnesses .

This raises questions about the credibility of WIV principal investigator Shi Zhengli’s public claim that there was “no infection” among WIV staff and students from SARS-CoV-2 or SARS-related viruses. .

Information previously undisclosed in the fact sheet indicates that accidental laboratory infections have caused several previous virus outbreaks and the Chinese government has prevented investigators and journalists to interview WIV researchers.

Additionally, WIV researchers have conducted experiments involving the bat coronavirus RaTG13 – the closest known relative of SARS-CoV-2, with a similarity of 96.2% – since at least 2016.

2018: Bat coronaviruses likely to infect people

In October 2015, Shi and his team conducted a serological surveillance on people living near caves where bats carrying various SARSr-CoV [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronaviruses] perch.5 They took blood samples from 218 villagers in Jinning County, Yunnan Province, China, which revealed that six people were infected.

“Our study provides the first serological evidence of probable human infection with bat SARSr-CoV or, potentially, related viruses,” they wrote, and “these results indicate that some SARSr-CoV may have a high potential to infect human cells. “6

Peter Daszak, President of the EcoHealth Alliance, was also part of the study, which is remarkable since he is also part of the World Health Organization team which is investigating the origins of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Daszak works closely with WIV and dozens of others on controversial research on function gain, which involves the manipulation of pathogens, including coronaviruses, to make them more infectious or deadly. He has openly and repeatedly dismissed the possibility that the pandemic was the result of a lab leak,7 and also has a close bond with Shi.

If there was any doubt, the sun,8 a British tabloid featured a conversation on Twitter in which Daszak “seems to be saying he’s looking forward to an alcohol karaoke party in a bat cave with Shi Zhengli,” GM Watch noted.9

Daszak tweets: “Looking forward to that special moment where we hit baiju and karaoke with Zhengli & Linfa [likely referring to Wang Linfa, aka ‘batman,’ another bat researcher and WIV’s chairman of scientific advisory10]. He adds, “Right now, a bat cave party just feels right to me !!”11

Report: Wuhan lab researchers had symptoms, self-quarantined

The video also mentions Botao Xiao, Ph.D., a professor at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China, who trained at Northwestern University and Harvard Medical School. In February 2020, he published a thesis on details he knew but was not supposed to talk about.

He knew, for example, that WIV researchers were infected and had already started quarantining themselves after showing symptoms. He said the majority of researchers in the lab suspected the virus was from bats, that it was not a natural infection, and that the main source of the virus was from the Wuhan lab, which, by the way by the way, measures just 280 meters (306.2 yards) from the seafood market where the virus is said to have “officially” originated.

According to the video, he also said that the researchers were doused with the collected bat urine and blood samples, along with a timeline of those events, and he knew how many bats were collected. . In an October 19, 2020 report, however, Dr. Peter Breggin revealed that the CCP forced them to retract and the document was withdrawn, “perhaps because it was written so convincingly and fairly.12

Patient zero is missing

Huang Yan Ling was a researcher at WIV who worked closely with Shi. According to the video, many believe Ling is Patient Zero for the COVID-19 pandemic, but she is now missing. Her profile and biography are missing from the WIV website, but after rumors surfaced that she was presumed dead, the Chinese government posted a notice on the WIV website saying she was alive.

No evidence was offered, however, and the author suggests that if the CCP wanted to stop the rumors, the first thing they would have done was make him make a public appearance. But “no one saw her.”

A message reportedly appeared on the Chinese messaging service WeChat, claiming to be from Ling and stating, “To my teachers and classmates, how long don’t you talk. I am Huang Yanling, still alive. If you receive an email [regarding the Covid rumor], please say that is not true ”, but she has since disappeared from social media.13 The UK Mirror further reported in January 2021:14

“The year-long hunt for Huan Yan Ling continues amid an alleged ‘state cover-up’ after the scientist went missing when reports were published online last February naming her ‘Patient Zero’… State officials and lab officers quickly dismissed the reports. at the time and delete them from the Internet.

They claimed Huang was safe and had simply moved out, with a Chinese news agency even claiming to have spoken about his new employer. But China has yet to produce the scientist physically despite numerous requests from the US State Department to stop hiding information. Their reluctance fueled the theory that she was either dead or state-owned to cover up the institute’s role in the pandemic… ”

SARS-CoV-2 perfectly suited for human infection

Daszak told The Associated Press in November 2020 that SARS-CoV-2 could have passed from a wildlife poacher to a trader who brought it to Wuhan,15 and others have also pushed the idea that SARS-CoV-2 arose and evolved naturally, passing from one animal species to another before eventually developing the ability to infect humans.

There is no direct evidence that the virus appeared zoonotic,16 However, while Lawrence Sellin, Ph.D., a former researcher at the US Army Medical Research Institute, detailed several unique characteristics that make SARS-CoV-2 exceptionally well suited to human infection:17

  • A very high infection rate, because it is more selective for the human ACE2 receptor than SARS-Cov-1 (the virus responsible for the 2003 SARS pandemic)18
  • A unique furin cleavage site not found in any closely related bat coronavirus, which allows the virus to fuse with human cells, thereby improving its pathogenicity and transmissibility19,20
  • Certain advanced protein structures which are similar to those found in the MERS-CoV virus, which allow the virus to attach itself using not only the ACE2 receptor but also the DPP4 receptor, such as MERS-CoV. This dual receptor strategy could be responsible for its ability to infect a wide range of human tissues21

Jean-Claude Perez, Ph.D., a retired interdisciplinary researcher from the IBM European Center for Artificial Intelligence Research, also claims to provide “formal proof that the 2019-nCoV coronavirus is in part a synthetic genome” due to the presence of fragments of the HIV1 retrovirus.22

Will the WHO team investigate a possible laboratory leak?

In an editorial published in the Journal of Human Security, Colin Butler of the Australian National University, a former WHO adviser who not only worked in China but also previously worked with Daszak, argued that there are “Striking” evidence that COVID-19 could have leaked. a laboratory.23,24

The AP noted, however, “according to the agenda published by the WHO25 for its research on the origins, there are no plans to assess whether there could have been an accidental release of the coronavirus at the Wuhan laboratory.26 Going further, GM Watch reported that Daszak “had already poured cold water on calls for a forensic investigation”:27

“An article in Science28 quotes him as saying, “ Some of the most anti-Chinese rhetoric out there, about, we have to go into the lab and look at the video cameras, that kind of stuff, it’s unrealistic, it’s not is not what is happening. ”

This prompted Rutgers’ Richard Ebright to comment,29 “Daszak’s claim that calls for a thorough and credible investigation, as opposed to a superficial and conflict-torn investigation, is ‘anti-China rhetoric’ is selfish nonsense.

In February 2021, it was reported that the WHO team had spent 3.5 hours at WIV, with little actual information released afterwards. Daszak vaguely stated on Twitter, “Extremely important meeting today with WIV staff including Dr Shi Zhengli. Frank, open discussion. Key questions asked and answers. “30

Yet, given the dire need for a full and independent investigation into a possible laboratory leak, many called on Daszak to quit the WHO investigative team,31 as evidence accumulates that a lab leak cannot be ruled out.
