- Although it has been suggested since the start of the pandemic in early 2020 that SARS-CoV-2, the new mutated coronavirus virus that causes COVID-19 disease, may have originated in a research laboratory, the narrative adopted globally by public health officials has marginalized that hypothesis and forwarded the idea that the virus had a natural origin and spread to humans via a bat or other animal host from a wet food market in China.
- Following recent public statements by former Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Director Robert Redfield, MD that he believes the most likely origin of the virus was an accidental release from a Chinese research lab, award winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson independently examined the evidence surrounding speculation about the origins of SARS-CoV-2.
- Attkisson’s research unearthed evidence not only of U.S. involvement in labs conducting potentially risky coronavirus research, but also in funding the research and manipulating information released shortly after the start of the pandemic.
Independent and widely respected journalist and author Sharyl Attkisson, who has won five Emmy’s and an Edward R. Murrow award for her investigative reporting, recently published a report arguing that, contrary to the theory that COVID-19 has a natural origin, there is considerable evidence indicating the SARS-CoV-2 virus causing COVID-19 disease likely originated in a research laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China.1
From the very beginning of the pandemic, there was considerable speculation about China’s WIV being the source of SARS-CoV-2,2 but this increasingly became viewed as a bogus theory and public health authorities in the United States and other countries instead insisted that the new mutated coronavirus originated with a naturally occurring jump from a mammal—either a bat or a pangolin—into humans. A letter signed by a group of public health officials and scientists that was published in the respected medical journal The Lancet in March of 2020 reads in part, “Scientists from multiple countries have published and analyzed genomes of the causative agent, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), and they overwhelmingly conclude that this coronavirus originated in wildlife.”3
Not All Public Officials Agree SARS-CoV-2 Did Not Originate In a Lab
When former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Robert Redfield, MD told CNN that he believed the SARS-CoV-2 virus most likely escaped from a research laboratory in Wuhan, China,4 the World Health Organization (WHO) immediately responded, calling that scenario extremely unlikely and reiterating their position that the new coronavirus most likely originated with a bat, either alone or passing through an intermediary animal.5
Other scientists have openly disagreed with the popular narrative that the virus jumped from an animal into humans,6 essentially agreeing with virologist Robert Garry, PhD of Tulane University, who said, “That’s the way it would be in a movie or some sort of a thriller or a comic book.”7
Natural Origins of COVID-19 Increasingly Questioned
In her May 2, 2021 podcast, “Sharyl Attkisson Investigates Covid-19 Origins (PODCAST)”, Atkisson discusses “what we know, and can prove, about the origins of COVID-19.” The information in this article is a brief summary of the topics Ms. Attkisson discusses in depth in her documented report and podcast:
- Numerous scientific insiders are signing onto the “lab origin” theory for COVID-19 and a link to controversial scientific research funded by U.S. tax dollars;
- High profile health figures who have worked to “debunk” lab origin questions are linked to funding and vaccine research partnerships with China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology;
- The U.S.- Chinese research involved genetically engineering a bat coronavirus to make it infect human airway cells in mice, in order to create vaccines and other therapeutics.
- U.S. taxpayer money supported the controversial vaccine research with Chinese scientists through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Some support came from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), led by NIAID Director Anthony Fauci, MD.8
Evidence of Chinese Laboratory and U.S. Involvement
Speaking to Attkisson, Jamie Metzl, PhD of the World Health Organization (WHO) International Advisory Committee on Human Genome Editing, said:
There are scientists all around the world who have told me that they believe the most likely origin of COVID-19, of the pandemic, is an accidental lab leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.9
Dr. Metzel added that many scientists are afraid to voice their belief that the virus escaped from a lab, calling it potentially “career suicide.”
Looking at genome sequencing, French virologist and Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier, MD postulated early in 2020 that COVID-19’s genetics had been manipulated, saying, “Someone added sequences… It’s the work of professionals, of molecular biologists… a very meticulous work.”
Virus Gain of Function Research Considered Very Risky
Fearing repercussions, many of her sources for information remain unnamed, but the scientists willing to speak with Attkisson were critical of U.S. researchers joining up with the Wuhan lab on experiments to increase the infectiousness of bat coronavirus in efforts to create a vaccine. As a general rule, this type of gain of function research theoretically “could create a lethal virus that escapes and causes a pandemic” and was considered so risky that the U.S. temporarily stopped such studies in 2014. According to Attkisson, they made an exception in the case of coronavirus research: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) not only approved the study but also paid for it with six grants of tax dollars, including money from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), headed by Dr. Fauci.
Other funding was provided through EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit headed up by virologist Peter Daszak, PhD, who studies viruses that can be transmitted to humans by animals. Working with Dr. Daszak was Ralph Baric, PhD from the University of North Carolina, who works with genetic modification of the coronavirus, one purpose of which is to increase the ability to quickly develop vaccines. Teaming up with Chinese virologist Shi Zhingli, PhD at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the researchers engineered “genetic hybrids of bat coronaviruses, successfully getting them to infect human airway cells grafted in mice.” Dr. Daszak said, “You can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily…”10
Many have objected to this type of scientific research with China, pointing out, for example, that a novel coronavirus which is fully capable of reproducing in human cells presents a danger to the public health because “If the virus escaped, nobody could predict the trajectory.”
State Department Visited Wuhan Lab in 2019
A year before the start of the pandemic, diplomats from the U.S. State Department visited the Wuhan laboratory. They conceded that the work being done was important but also expressed concerns over the safety of the lab and warned of a risk for “a new SARS-like pandemic.”
Despite his involvement in the research being conducted at the Wuhan lab, Dr. Daszak was included in the team investigating the origins of COVID-19.The report from that team concluded that it was extremely unlikely that the virus came from a lab.
When Attkisson asked Dr. Metzl about who was behind the controversy over questioning the possible lab origins of the virus responsible for COVID-19, he pointed to Dr. Daszak. Dr. Metzl indicated that Dr. Daszak and his EcoHealth Alliance had driven the efforts to discredit any possible suggestion of lab origins of the virus and also noted that Daszak was the instigator of the letter published in The Lancet 11 labeling the lab origin questions as “conspiracy theories,” without disclosing their own ties to the Wuhan research lab.
According to Dr. Metzl:
This letter was considered at the time, very credible. There were a number of Nobel laureates who signed it. And only later did it come out through a Freedom of Information request that the entire process had been managed and manipulated, and it really took the better part of a year.12

OK. Many people have suspected this was/is the case, now what? What does this mean in the real world? If Fauci & Co were involved in funding the research, what does that mean? What consequences if any are there for those involved? How can this information change the trajectory of what is happening around the world?
EXACTLY why aren’t the criminals behind bars – MOST AWAKE people know Fauci and Gates have committed CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY –
What is everyone waiting on?????
THERE IS NO NEED OF ANY EXPERIMENTAL GENE THERAPY INJECTIONS when the recovery rate is95 percent- REALLY WHAT CAN YOU NOT SEE IN THAT????
Great point! Now what? Even if the people involved do come forward (which they probably will not, at least for a long, long time), then what are all the governments who chose to herd people to wear masks, destroy economies and livelihoods, and now are pushing for vaccination, going to do? who will fully accept responsibility for the misunformation and the devastating effects it had on people?
Nobody has yet to admit of possible link to human mishandling for the HIV epidemic which started (at least officially) 40 years or so ago, so how could we make the world aware of the issues with this virus, and what would it change truly? the virus is out there, no matter where it came from and now we also have to deal with being exposed to those who are vaccinated to make matters worse. It is really looking like a science fiction storyline turned bad. The only hope is that the wise will stick to building a healthy lifestyle and continue refusing being guinea pigs.
Absolutely nothing will happen it will be glossed over and put aside with something else to divert attention.
Should we start calling SARS-CoV-2 the “Fauci Virus” then? Looks like he may be the father of the virus (having paid for its creation).
It was a Plandemic!! China, Gates, Dems, and Fauci were all in on it!! Just shows how desperate the left was to remove Trump from office. May the God’s rain ashes upon their heads!!
Globalist criminals from all Nations. Contrary to the myth, our governments, in any country, not just USA, but also China, in Canada or UK is the enemy. You will notice how China not just the US neocons, are pushing for Agenda 21. China and USA are the head of the snake and all the denounciation by Trump was just that, theater since the Deep State was never under threat and Trump kept Dr Fauci, which is the main criminal behind the US collaboration with the Wuhan Laboratory. COVID 19 real goal is MASS EXTERMINATION and MASS STERILIZATION of humanity by stealth. The bio weapon by the way in not the virus but the deadly expirimental vaccines.
…..while Wuhan BL-IV may have been the LAST place where modifications were made to whatever this biologic ACTUALLY is – it, nor ANY other so-called ‘viruses’ have ever been proven to exist through application of either ‘Koch’s postulates’, nor Rivers’ less-rigorous criteria requiring (re)isolation of a distinct agent, what’s NOT being investigated yet are the American centers (Fort Detrick & University of North Carolina, likely MIT and Harvard) but ESPECIALLY, European points of development (France – L’Institut de Pasteur under a Frederic Tangy; Switzerland – at behest of WEF, Belgium, possibly Denmark…..)
There must be consequences. Kriminals like Fauci and the German counterpart Drosten need to be locked up.
Redpill great questions that no one is asking Fauci or WHO. Fauci was doing this research here in the US during the Obama Admin and once Obama realize how dangerous it was he told Fauci to shut it down but Fauci with the Bill Gates Foundation moved it to Wuhan. He needs to answer these questions. We need someone other than WHO and China really investigating what happened but no one is doing anything. Where is our government!!!
Dr Mercola has been saying this right from the start. A brave and honourable man 7
What this means is —NOTHING!
Nothing will ever be done and no one will ever be held accountable! That’s how the system works!
Fauci funded the research done by the Chinese and Daszak provided a cover story for the fact that the Deep State (incl. Fauci et al) elites released a bio weapon on the world to purposely reduce its population and sicken people who’ll need ongoing drug support to minimally survive. VAERS has a partial record of Fauci’s crimes.
I believe all those involved should be prosecuted and spend time in jail. Begin with Dr. Fauci and work your way to Bill and Melinda Gates.
Show the evidence, a scientific paper that shows that SARS Cov 2 has been purified and isolated. That means the original pure undiluted particle of this alleged new virus. Not one study has proved the existence of such a pathogen. However, there is lots of “ridiculous scientific” so called studies that end in consensus with no actual facts.
Mr Fauci seems very obviously to have to end up in jail! Along with other conspiracists… just about time for a clean up!
My question exactly — who should/will be held accountable for the utter devastation this has caused. It makes me sick to think that no one will be.
Check this out!
A lot of questions need to be asked i.e.
1. The connections between Fauci, Gates and other proponents of a world depopulation agenda and via bio weaponry.
2.The re naming of a gene therapy as a being a vaccine which is misleading to a non suspecting the public.
3.Then all the money that is being made from the injection.
So We The People approved (our) taxes for funding the laboratory, to genetically change the DNA of a germ, in order for inventors to create an experimental vaccine to fight the mutated germ. Ironically there was planning for a pandemic, a year before one actually happened. When the covid pandemic did occur, the experimental products were unleashed, knowing ‘The Perfect Storm.’
I also heard that Fauci & Co patented the virus and the associated vaccines. What I’d like to know if what vaccines were they trying to manufacture? They felt creating this virus through gain of function was key to manufacturing vaccines? Which vaccines other than those for COVID-19? Was it nefarious and merely a money-making scheme, was it bio-warfare gone bad, or was it a production method that went very, very bad?
Redpill: I “second your motion” – the answers to your questions will go along way to overturning this horror show, i.e., cv-virus/gene therapy-jab.
“A year before the start of the pandemic, diplomats from the U.S. State Department visited the Wuhan laboratory. They conceded that the work being done was important but also *expressed concerns over the safety of the lab and warned of a risk for “a new SARS-like pandemic.”*
So the government admitted the virus could escape and create a respiratory pandemic, yet this was later labelled a ‘conspiracy theory’? They should try to get their stories straight, when attempting to mislead the entire world. 🙁
We will never get any truth from China, big pharma, the medical mafia, gates, fauci, the CDC, FDA, WHO, Joey, Congress, or even your pretend statewide expert medical agency…this is etched in stone for the next 10,000 years. So we have courageous people with some expertise trying to find the truth and solid answers. And many of them can agree with overall ideas, but often disagree on the details. The exact truth will remain a mysterious fact that is as evasive as capturing the wind.
My current truth is that the pandemic is fake, there may be a virus of some kind (covid-19) which is similar to the average flu which varies from person to person in its severity and 90% of the numbers since day one of the great covid fear-panic are contrived and beyond useful. The gene altering therapies (fake vaccines) are useless, extremely dangerous and totally untested to any meaningful degree. Even if it is the year 2031 and they prove to not be poisons, harmful or of some efficacy, I would never submit to any of them. My body, my life, my choice my consequences. Unlike a politician or most of the pretend leaders of the world, I will accept the consequences of my choices, made directly by myself and if I die…that’s life.
None of you fake, insane, arrogant, control freaks who feel you have the need to make everyone’s life miserable and filled with fear, can pass me by for I refuse to be intimidated by the likes of you.
What they really need to be investigating is whether or not the virus actually exists according to Koch’s Postulates (or Rivers). I read one of the CDC studies and the paper actually says that it DOES NOT meet Koch’s Postulates for identifying a new pathogenic Virus. IN FACT NO Virus ever has met these rules for proving they are a pathogenic virus. LOOK it up and research this for yourself. Here is a list to start with. Virus Mania, Dr. Tom Cowan, Dr. Andrew Kaufman, Dr. Stephan Lanka, virustruth.org, truthiverse.com.
PS: I know this sound totally crazy, and at first I thought so too, but not anymore. Just at least look into it. For the sake of your health and everyone you care about.
If this virus was in fact manufactured in a lab, will the vaccines that are available at this time have any effect on it?
I am not a doctor or a scientist or an investigative reporter. I am just an American with a brain and a gut instinct, both of which told me from the very beginning of this crisis that such a destructive coronavirus strain could only have occurred on the worldwide stage with such suddenness and such lethality if it had been genetically altered–on purpose, by humans, in a lab. The only thing I didn’t know was why. Thank you, Ms. Attkisson, for doing the due diligence that has been so badly needed to root out the one person at the foundation of this debacle. I only hope that now that he’s been outed, he doesn’t disappear to some country without an extradition agreement before he can be arrested and charged with crimes against humanity.
Knowing the unethical genesis of this agent and the dishonesty of the principals involved in its creation, we remain far from discussing the possibility it was deliberately released as a bioweapon for nefarious purpose(s).
Of course they were all involved. Along with the Chinese, Bill Gates, Big Pharma, Big Tech, News Media, and even the Vatican. Somehow we need to get this information out ~ we need to be informed before making the decision to get jabbed by this FRANKENCINE. Or worse, to be mandated to take it and spend the rest of our lives as pariahs of society. Remember what happened in Germany, April, 1933 ? ~ and it CAN happen here. Everyone should have access to and inform themselves about the TRUTH which the media is desperately trying to censor: PLEASE pass this to all Social Media sites you have access to before it is too late. Thank you. https://www.patrickcoffin.media/truth-over-fear-covid-19-the-vaccine-and-the-great-reset/

Hello? Knock Knock Knock I know the lights are on with many people because they recognize a scam is occurring but just can’t grasp the motives for the widespread blatant lying and theatrics of once trusted leaders and professionals. I think the Chinese and Central Bankers are planning to substitute a new Global electronic currency to replace the now hated petrodollar and end Saudi Arabia’s OPEC shenanigans. Since I have no real evidence other than a G. Soros interview in 2009: I admit speculation only. HOWEVER the focus of my comment is to suggest those who KNOW something not good is going on … take a long moment to think about the FACT that SARS-1, SARS-2 & HIV nave never been isolated for confirmed identification or colonized for hands on research. NEVER … Bottom Line: This author is speculating about how a virus which is speculated to exist was created. If we ever hope to grasp the real meaning of events today, we need to read between the lines to discover what really happened in the past. QUESTION EVERYTHING!
Anyone who buys into the gain of function proposal knows nothing about the HIV fiasco and how CDC, WHO created out of thin air…..the “killer” RNA – HIV retrovirus and big pharma cashed in with AZT derivative drug treatments. Montagnier, Gallo, Fauci (just coming on board), all part of the lie. Montagnier has recanted somewhat. HIV was GRID correctly diagnosed by the “other” scientists/virologists including the great genius Duesberg. WHO/CDC/PHARMA DON’T NEED A VIRUS!!!!! Read; Inventing the AIDS Virus – Duesberg // Fear of the Invisible by Jeanine Roberts, Poison by Prescription by John Lauritsen // the documentary; House of Numbers. Drosten is behind all this and his rushed sample to WHO for PCR test for Covid19……never was the gene segment taken from a novel isolated virus from infected patients blood, mucus, tissue in full intact whole virus particle AND in millions of viremia. RNA virus are in us all the time passing codes….and in animals. They are weak inefficient highly unstable, highly mutating single strand RNA retroviruses….not suitable for gain of function revisions. Long known to science as passenger, associated, symbiotic viruses. Scientists now doubt they’re viruses at all but exozomes. And this red herring gain of function supposes that CDC change of death certificate “more often than not” covid classification didn’t vastly raise the death by covid numbers. Or that ventilators didn’t do their part in raising death rates. And 20-21 flu season now it’s evident was used as COVID, Fauci admits, flu season didn’t happen!!! Un-effing-believable!!
Thr consequence for treason and crimes against humanity is execution. I’d like to see Fauci, Birx, Gates, Schiff, ALL of the vax manufacturers and brokers, i.e. FDA, CDC, AMA get all 70 of the recommended ‘vaccines’ they think every human needs! Give them all at once — adding to dose for height/weight. No big deal. They’re safe right?
We are in the midst of the propaganda technique coined as the “Big Lie” more than 80 years ago by an infamous dictator, “based on the premises that people may be more likely to believe colossal untruths because they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously”.
So here we are a handful of people trying to shed light to the rest who are just more than willing to just go along with whatever mandates because looking at evidence to see the truth is too much work or seem impossible.
We need to continue passing the words along as Nancy stated even if we are labeled as “crazy” or much worse.
This lab escape theory is just another scapegoat to hide the real source of the virus. This particular story plays into China’s favor because it distracts from the actual intermediate host and is unlikely to be taken seriously enough to actually explode in China’s face.
Mink are the intermediate host for the virus. This is why covid so easily infected mink in Europe. There are tons of mink farms in the provinces surrounding Wuhan. This is a huge money making industry and it is being shielded by the Chinese government with the help of all these distractions.
This might be Chinese made electronics but this is not a virus.

He says that the symptoms look like Oxygen deprivation. That is exactly what Dr Jack Kruse predicted we would see from 60GHz 5G wireless radiation as it effects the ability of hemoglobin to uptake O2 in our lungs.
With many comments in regards to those responsible for the bioweapon ( Corona virus) that causes covid-19 in humans that nothing will be done to these criminal psychopaths that unleashed this virus upon the world, that is not true, world renowned criminal lawyer Dr. Reiner Fuellmich has filed criminal charges against the CDC, WHO and the Davos group ( which many of the worlds billionaire elites are part of ) in the International Courts for crimes against humanity, filed May 6 2021. In which every international laws from the Neurenburg Trials were broken by these groups, many others involved will also face the same charges as this case unfolds, Dr. Reiner Fuellmich has a team of over 1000 lawyers and over 10,000 doctors and scientists with indisputable evidence.
If you ever wondered WHO is owned by, take a look.
