Covid did leak from a Wuhan lab, secret report suggests

Reading time: 2 minutes

The Covid-19 virus probably did escape from a laboratory in Wuhan. A secret US intelligence report has discovered that three scientists from the facility needed hospital treatment in November 2019 for ‘Covid-like’ symptoms—countering the official line that the first cases happened a month later and were the result of eating produce from a fish and meat market in the city.

But the discovery that the scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were displaying Covid symptoms a month earlier suggests the laboratory was engineering bat viruses, and that one result—the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes Covid-19—leaked from the facility, probably that November.

Around 200 scientists are demanding transparency and have called for an independent review of the evidence, especially after a World Health Organization (WHO) investigation failed to determine the origin of the virus.

Even Dr Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to the President, is admitting the ‘possibility’ that the Covid-19 pandemic—which has so far killed upwards of 4 million people, and wrecked whole economies—was a man-made virus that leaked.  He is also facing perjury charges after lying to Congress about a US funding programme that was bankrolling research at the Wuhan lab.  

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a division of the National Institute of Health, was funding ‘gain of function’ research at the lab until 2014 when President Obama banned the work, and from then the funding was siphoned through the EcoHealth Alliance, a New York based group that researches the impact of animal viruses on human health.

The Alliance’s chief executive, Prof Peter Daszak, was also the lead investigator of the WHO team that visited Wuhan last January.
