The Biden Administration remains curiously uncurious about the origins of the COVID virus. That leaves it to other countries to ask the questions that the United States government should be asking.
Dr. Alina Chan, a researcher at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, told the UK Parliament’s Science and Technology Select Committee that the Wuhan lab is the “most likely origin of COVID” and that scientists willing to speak out about the lab leak theory have been suppressed.
From Wales Online which has a video of Dr. Chan’s testimony:
Dr Chan, said: “I think the lab origin is more likely than not. Right now it’s not safe for people who know about the origin of the pandemic to come forward. But we live in an era where there is so much information being stored that it will eventually come out.
“We have heard from many top virologists that a genetically engineered origin is reasonable and that includes virologists who made modifications to the first Sars virus.
“We know this virus has a unique feature, called the furin cleavage site, and without this feature there is no way this would be causing this pandemic.
“A proposal was leaked showing that EcoHealth and the Wuhan Institute of Virology were developing a pipeline for inserting novel furin cleavage sites. So, you find these scientists who said in early 2018 ‘I’m going to put horns on horses’ and at the end of 2019 a unicorn turns up in Wuhan city.”
Learning the truth about the origins of COVID is important. At minimum, if the virus were engineered in or escaped from a lab, that would provide powerful evidence in support of greater safety procedures at biolabs to minimize the likelihood of another leak.
There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that suggests that the virus had its origins in the Wuhan lab. Were the virus had natural origins, why would China be doing everything it can to prevent outsiders from accessing records, personnel and facilities at the lab? If someone, in this case China, is acting like they have something to hide, there’s a good chance that they really do have something to hide.
However, in the United States, the American government and the US media are giving the question on the origins of COVID a good leaving alone. US spy agencies quietly released a report in October that said very little about the origins of the virus. House Democrats show no interest in investigating the origins of COVID.
What accounts for this indifference?
– Might it be that the Biden Administration fears pointing the finger at China lest they release details of Hunter Biden’s business dealing with China and the CCP? In the October 2020 debate, Joe Biden claimed that Hunter has never “taken a penny” from a foreign country. Evidence obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop demonstrates that this was a lie. What evidence might China have of Biden family business dealings, corrupt or legitimate, in that nation or with other hostile powers?
– Might it be that the Democrats are concerned that the discovery of the true origins of COVID might vindicate President Trump who suggested the virus came from a lab?
– Might it be that scientists in America are afraid to speak their minds due to concerns about being potentially cut off from research funding from China? Or possibly, since there are indications that the NIH funded gain of function research at the Wuhan lab, that scientists are afraid of retaliation from the NIH?
Given the enormous cost and loss of life from the pandemic, it is important that we learn the origins of the COVID virus. Unfortunately, the Democrats and the Biden Administration show no interest in allowing the intelligence community or helping U.S. scientists get to the bottom of this question. We will have to look elsewhere to learn the origins of the COVID virus.
