For the past few days, a video of “Project Veritas” has been circulating massively on social networks.
In hidden camera, a man who would be director of research and development at Pfizer confesses in front of the camera: his company is creating mutations of Covid-19 in order to be able to develop new vaccines.
This is not the first video of its kind published by this ultra-conservative NGO and this raises some questions.
Since Wednesday, a new video of "Project Veritas" has been massively circulating on social networks.
On Twitter, she has been liked over 134,000 times and retweeted 70,000 times as of this writing.
According to the founder of "Project Veritas", the video is now one of the most viewed on their site.
BREAKING: @Pfizer Exploring "Mutating" COVID-19 Virus For New Vaccines
"Don't tell anyone this...There is a risk...have to be very controlled to make sure this virus you mutate doesn't create something. ..the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest."#DirectedEvolution pic.twitter.com/xaRvlD5qTo

The image gives the impression of a hidden camera.
The man filmed would be called Jordon Trishton Walker and would be director of research and development at Pfizer.
The atmosphere is intimate and it's time for confession.
The alleged Pfizer employee admits during the discussion that the company is in the process of manufacturing a mutation of Covid-19.
"Don't tell anyone, you have to promise me you won't tell anyone," says the man.
It is not said to the public”.
During the discussion, Jordon Trishton Walker also explains the purpose of this mutation.
The idea would be for Pfizer to create new viruses to eventually be able to develop new vaccines.
The alleged employee also recalls the danger behind: letting the virus escape from the laboratory.
"I suspect that's what happened in Wuhan," he finally admits.
To understand what this confession is worth,
takes stock of this video through four questions.
Is this man really a Pfizer employee?
Through a Google search, we try to find a trace of Jordon Trishton Walker, who would work at Pfizer.
But no occurrence appears on the search engine, nor on the network of LinkedIn professionals.
We also attempt a search on the Yahoo search engine.
This time, bingo, "Jordon Walker employee at Pfizer" appears.
But his account has been deleted and is no longer visible.
On the SignalHire site - which references professional contact details - the profile of Jordon Walker can also be seen.
The information is taken from his LinkedIn profile, which no longer exists.
He would be director of research and development for nearly a year and a half with Pfizer.
Previously, the man would have worked as a consultant in the firm BCG.
For example, we find an article signed by Jordon Walker in May 2020. It was entitled: "Short-term prospects for therapeutic treatments against Covid-19".
In addition, the founder of "Project Veritas" James O'Keefe shared on his Twitter account elements on Jordon Walker.
He posts screenshots of the internal org chart on the Teams platform.
We see in particular those of Albert Bourla and Mikael Dolsten, respectively managing director and president of research and medical development at Pfizer.
Several names of potential colleagues of Jordon Walker are also mentioned: Allison Blum, Colin Bond, Efrain Cermeno, Eileen Elliott or even Nina So.
All have visible LinkedIn profiles and actually work at Pfizer.
The digital presence of Jordon Walker therefore remains very mysterious and it is difficult to know his real activity at Pfizer.
Either the man actually works at Pfizer but remains very secretive, or his whole identity is made up.
We have contacted Pfizer about this and have yet to get back to us.
Project Veritas was founded in the late 2000s by James O'Keefe.
From a YouTube channel, it became a non-governmental organization in 2010, explains the Conspiracy Watch site.
Still according to the observatory of conspiracy, the "Project Veritas" adheres to ultra-conservative American ideologies.
"Today, 'Project Veritas' investigates and exposes corruption, dishonesty, personal dealings, waste, fraud and other misconduct in public and private institutions to achieve a more ethical and transparent society," explains the website of "Project Veritas".
Among its investors, we find the conservative association Donors Trust, but also Donald Trump.
Is this video the first?
This is not the first video of its kind published by "Project Veritas".
In October 2021, on the YouTube channel, “Project Veritas” published a ten-minute video showing three Pfizer employees.
Still filmed with a hidden camera, the so-called scientists supported speeches that were very critical of vaccines against Covid-19, which would be less and less effective against the disease.
They also criticize their company for putting financial values ahead of ethics.
As revealed at the time by our colleagues from the fact-checking unit of Liberation, Check News, this video was part of a series called “Expose”.
As of October 2021, it included five videos in all.
The pattern is the same: Pfizer employees criticize their company without their knowledge.
Each video claims to reveal a heavy revelation fueling conspiratorial theories: creation of a virus, ineffectiveness of the vaccine or evidence on natural immunity.
What do we know about virus mutations?
The latest video published by “Project Veritas” concerns this time the mutation of the virus.
Jordon Walker admits that it is Pfizer that seeks to create this mutation to develop new vaccines.
A dangerous practice, according to the employee filmed secretly, which would lead to the escape of certain viruses.
"I suspect that's what happened in Wuhan," he admits again.
A theory born in the early hours of Covid-19.
According to many rumors, the Covid-19 would have been manufactured in a laboratory, in Wuhan.
In an article published in June 2021 in the journal Nature, scientists questioned the knowledge and the unknowns about this leak from a laboratory.
They explain that the majority of scientists opt for its natural origin transmitted from animals to humans.
But they add that characteristics of the virus challenged scientists because they were used by researchers during genetic manipulation.
Neither of the two theses has been ruled out to date.
However, the participation of the Pfizer company has never been demonstrated.
What is more, the experience described by the alleged employee is called “a gain in function”.
It is the practice of genetically modifying viruses to make them either more transmissible or more virulent.
According to an article in the magazine Québec science, the research remains very controversial.
Some researchers believe that this would make it possible to understand the emergence of new pathogens and therefore to better prepare for them.
Others feel that it is too great a risk and not very secure.
However, these practices remain highly controlled.
