New media documents revealed exciting allegations about the origin of the emerging corona virus "Covid-19" and the relationship of scientists of the Wuhan Institute in China to it, and American scientists as well, so what are those allegations?
Before entering into the details, it must be emphasized here that these are all theories and allegations, and that the only way to defeat the Corona pandemic is by receiving vaccination and adhering to social distancing measures, masks and personal hygiene in accordance with the recommendations of health institutions in your country.
Wuhan scientists planned to release the Corona virus into cave bats in 2018
We start with Britain's Telegraph, where Sarah Knapton writes that scientists in Wuhan and US scientists were planning to release "enhanced airborne coronavirus particles" into bat populations to inoculate them against disease. that can be transmitted to humans, according to documents dating back to 2018.
The new documents show that just 18 months before the first cases of COVID-19 appeared, researchers presented plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles and aerosols containing "novel chimeric spike proteins" - from "bat coronaviruses" into Cave bats in Yunnan, China.
The scientists also planned to create genetically improved chimeric viruses to infect humans more easily, and requested $14 million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in the United States to fund this work.
A chimeric virus is a virus that contains genetic material derived from two or more different viruses.
The papers - which a former member of the Trump administration confirmed to be authentic - show that the researchers "were hoping to introduce specific human sites for 'bat coronaviruses', which would facilitate the virus' entry into human cells," according to The Telegraph.
The documents were published by Drastic, the online investigative team set up by scientists from around the world to look into the origins of COVID-19.
When the coronavirus was first genetically sequenced, scientists were baffled as to how the virus would evolve such a human-specific adaptation at a site on the spike protein, which is why it is so contagious.
The proposals revealed in the documents also included plans to mix high-risk natural coronavirus strains with more contagious but less dangerous strains.
The proposal was presented by British zoologist Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance, a US-based organization, which has worked closely with the Wuhan Institute of Virology to research "bat coronaviruses".
The team members included Dr. Shi Jingli, a researcher at the Wuhan Institute nicknamed "The Bat Woman", in addition to American researchers from the University of North Carolina and the National Geological Survey's National Wildlife Health Center in the United States.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency declined to fund the work, saying "it is clear that the proposed project led by Peter Daszak could have put local communities at risk," and cautioned that the team had not properly considered the risks of boosting the virus.
Angus Dalglish, a professor of oncology at St. George's University who struggled to publish work showing that the Wuhan Institute of Virology had been carrying out research on coronavirus promotion called "gain of function" work for years before the epidemic. The research might have gone ahead even without the funding.
Corona virus strains created by the Wuhan laboratory were up to 10,000 times stronger than usual
We turn to documents issued by the US Right to Know, which show that research was conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China and studied the Corona virus found in bats that were caught in a former copper mine in Mujiang, about 1,118 miles from the lab, writes Patrick Knox in Britain's The Sun.
The report quoted Richard Ebright, a biosafety expert and professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers University, that the documents show that this involves dangerous experiments that may lead to a virus leaking from the laboratory.
The report said the research appears to include making bat coronaviruses more virulent, potentially having viral loads up to 10,000 times higher than normal.
It is worrying, Dr. Ebright said, that some coronaviruses have been manipulated to make them extremely dangerous.
Corona's appearance was intentional
We turn to the claim of a Chinese dissident that the first appearance of Covid-19 was intentional and occurred in October 2019 at the Military World Games in Wuhan, two months before China notified the world about the virus, according to a report in the British “Daily Mail” and American "Fox News".
Wei Jingsheng, a former member of the Chinese Communist Party, said that the World Military Games in October 2019 may be the first "superspreader" to spread the virus.
He claimed that it was no coincidence that some of the 9,000 athletes who gathered at the event contracted a mysterious illness.
He said - in a new documentary program for "Sky News" - "I thought that the Chinese government would take this opportunity to spread the virus during the military games, as many foreigners will appear there."
He claimed that he knew "the Chinese government might use some strange weapons, including biological weapons, because I knew they were experimenting with this kind".
According to him.
He said that French, German and American athletes were among those who developed symptoms similar to the Covid-19 virus at the tournament, but were never tested for the virus.
Constant Chinese denials
China has long denied that the coronavirus came from a laboratory or was manufactured.
A few days ago, the Arabic channel of China International Television Network published an expert's call for pluralism in revealing the origins of Covid-19 to ensure "objective and reliable" results.
Humphrey Moshe, professor of economics and director of the Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Dar es Salaam, said in an article in the Johannesburg-based newspaper, The Citizen, that the use of its intelligence services by the United States to investigate tracing the origins of the Corona virus has led to some people making Scapegoating, finger-pointing and misunderstanding due to the "high-level politicization of this process".
"No one should expect reliable results in such circumstances that were and still are based on a fundamentally unilateral approach. Indeed, this approach is often biased, unscientific and subjective," Moshe added.Keywords:
