Well here's a news story that got many people censored, canceled, and thrown out of polite society when it became clear more than three years ago.
Covid-19 escaped from the Wuhan lab where it was created as a military bioweapon by researchers trying to concoct a new super-virus for warfare purposes, according to US investigators.
There was a time when you weren't even allowed to say it came from China, but the latest evidence shows that all of the wildest "conspiracy theories" were completely true.
Researchers in Wuhan, China working with the Chinese military were genetically manipulating the world's deadliest coronaviruses to create a new mutant virus right around the time that the Covid-19 pandemic began, according to the Sunday Times, which has reviewed hundreds of documents, "Including previously confidential reports, internal memos, scientific papers and email correspondence that has been obtained through sources or by freedom of information campaigners in the three years since the pandemic started."
All of the worst fears now appear to be true.
From The Sunday Times:
Investigators who scrutinised top-secret intercepted communications and scientific research believe Chinese scientists were running a covert project of dangerous experiments, which caused a leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology and started the Covid-19 outbreak.
The US investigators say one of the reasons there is no published information on the work is because it was done in collaboration with researchers from the Chinese military, which was funding it and which, they say, was pursuing bioweapons.
Holy crap, Batman.
Communist China released a deadly bioweapon that wiped out millions of people worldwide and ushered in authoritarian rule throughout the globe and they'll likely face no consequences.
The institute was engaged in increasingly risky experiments on coronaviruses it gathered from bat caves in southern China. Initially, it made its findings public and argued the associated risks were justified because the work might help science develop vaccines.
This changed in 2016 after researchers discovered a new type of coronavirus in a mineshaft in Mojiang in Yunnan province where people had died from symptoms similar to Sars.
Rather than warning the world, the Chinese authorities did not report the fatalities. The viruses found there are now recognised as the only members of Covid-19's immediate family known to have been in existence pre-pandemic.
This is pure mad scientist evil villain stuff. Communists, man!
The US investigators believe that the purpose of the program was to make the mineshaft viruses MORE infectious and dangerous to humans and then, after years of research, one of the viruses likely leaked causing the 2020 global pandemic.
They found evidence that researchers working on these experiments were taken to hospital with Covid-like symptoms in November 2019 — a month before the West became aware of the pandemic — and one of their relatives died.
An investigator said: "We were rock-solid confident that this was likely Covid-19 because they were working on advanced coronavirus research in the laboratory. They're trained biologists in their thirties and forties. Thirty-five-year-old scientists don't get very sick with influenza."
We literally told everyone this is exactly what happened from the beginning. Then they spent years telling us it was from some bad bat soup and that even saying it came from China was RACIST.
Separate analysis shows the centre of the initial outbreak of Covid-19, which has killed more than seven million people, was close to the institute's laboratory, rather than at the city's "wet" wildlife market as had been thought.
This is absolutely unacceptable.
We know Biden won't do anything about it, but the next president has to hold China and all of the US politicians and government officials who covered it up ACCOUNTABLE.
P.S. The Wuhan Institute of Virology is working on many other viruses still. Who knows what the next "accident" could bring...
