China Requested NIH Delete Samples From COVID-19 Patients in Early 2020

China Requested NIH Delete Samples From COVID-19 Patients in Early 2020

“The NIH confirmed that it deleted the sequences after receiving a request from a Chinese researcher who had submitted them three months earlier.”

Something smells rotten in China, and it’s not the fish from the Wuhan Seafood Market.

The Daily Mail reported an American professor retrieved files deleted by the NIH containing crucial data from the earliest confirmed COVID patients. It appears the patients came down with the virus well before the infamous “seafood market outbreak” China pointed to as the pathogen point source.

The American professor who spotted their deletion and managed to recover some of the data said they suggested Covid was circulating long before China’s official timeline.

He found the early samples of the virus were more evolved than would be expected of a pathogen that had recently jumped from animals to humans — but did not say it gave more weight to the ‘lab leak’ theory.

Professor Jesse Bloom, a virologist from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, said he believed China had removed the files to ‘obscure their existence’.

British scientists told MailOnline the findings confirm Covid was spreading in people before being linked to wet markets, ‘perhaps months before’.

The cover-up that Bloom discovered appeared in a scientific report, ‘Recovery of deleted deep sequencing data sheds more light on the early Wuhan SARS-CoV-2 epidemic’.

Forty-five positive samples had originally been uploaded to the National Institute of Health‘s (NIH) Sequence Read Archive by the Wuhan University in early March 2020.

The NIH is a US Government agency responsible for biomedical and public health research.

The samples were published as part of a study into diagnosing Covid patients using PCR tests – just days before the Chinese Government issued an order requiring approval of the publication of all coronavirus data.

Professor Bloom noted all 45 samples have since been pulled from the database, with ‘no plausible scientific reason for the deletion’.

He said the most likely explanation was to ‘abuse’ and ‘obscure’ the truth about the origins of the pandemic.

Fox News reported the National Institutes of Health (NIH) confirmed the deletion:

The NIH confirmed that it deleted the sequences after receiving a request from a Chinese researcher who had submitted them three months earlier.

“Submitting investigators hold the rights to their data and can request withdrawal of the data,” the NIH said in a statement.

Meanwhile, China says the Wuhan Institute of Virology deserves a Nobel Prize.

China is calling for the Wuhan Institute of Virology to win a Nobel Prize, while the US is investigating whether it leaked the novel coronavirus.

Zhao Lijian, a top spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry, in a press conference last Thursday criticized people for assuming that the virus originated in Wuhan because it was first found there, and dismissed the theory that the virus was made in the lab and had escaped.

“The genome sequence of COVID-19 was first identified by Chinese scientists, but that does not mean Wuhan is the source of the coronavirus, nor can it be inferred that the coronavirus was made by Chinese scientists,” Zhao said.

He later added that “the team in Wuhan should be awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine for their research on COVID-19, instead of being criticized.”

Really? As China appears to have bioengineered the virus in the first place, of course, it would have been the first to produce the genomic sequence!

But in a world where Barack Obama deserved a Nobel Peace Prize, perhaps there is a case for awarding the Wuhan labs for their “achievement.” However, a China win reduces the science-based prize to a mockery of its original intention. Moreover, it would confirm that China purchased those on the Nobel award committees.

Again you put NIH not CIH.

Is the CCP really demanding a Nobel Prize for turning loose a pandemic on the rest of the world, as a challenge to its marvelous researchers?

We really have ‘way too many dead people worldwide for them to make this kind of joke.


We knew WHO was China’s bitch. Now we see that NIH is too.

The CCP must get a good laugh at all this. Add the Hunter mess and it is like a circus here. How embarrassing.

“Submitting investigators hold the rights to their data and can request withdrawal of the data,” the NIH said in a statement.

What??? That’s insane.

    It is worth investigating how long this NIH “ policy “ has been in effect. It is overly convenient that these genetic sequences were removed at the same time Dr Fauci was discussing the virus’ origin with NIH insiders. It may be a long standing policy but inquiring minds want to know.

    What’s insane about it? Why would you even think that someone kindly sharing their data with the NIH is thereby giving up all rights to it? If that were so who in their right mind would ever do it?

    I bet all that data is in backup copies. It needs to be recovered, all of it.

    Data is usually withdrawn at the request of the investigator because fault has been found with it. Bad data should not be allowed to remain available for other researchers (it leads to GIGO). Granted, the data withdrawn was likely not bad, and the request was probably not made with the claim that it was. But the policy of allowing the withdrawal of data is probably not restricted to bad data, and likely does not require a statement of cause when requesting the withdrawal of data, in order to make the process minimally embarrassing to the researcher.

Slow-breaking scandal — vile, self-serving and patently dishonest Dhimmi-crats and “Deep State” allies slow-walked/buried intelligence showing that the Wuhan virus was rather obviously a pre-meditated attack upon the U.S. and allies, intended to help depose President Trump and to install dim-witted, feeble, tottering, corrupt, mendacious and incompetent dhimmi/dotard/vassal/puppet, Chairman Xi-den. Let’s wait for the patently obvious to eventually become exposed. Only a delusional and myopic fool would believe that it’s pure coincidence that a new disease magically shows up on our shores, at the beginning of an election in which the incumbent is cruising to re-election, given China’s increasingly unabashed and unrestrained bellicosity and belligerence in foreign affairs, over the past two decades.

With Planned Parent/hood, Planned Patient, and now Planned Pathogenic trail, too, The Chinese leftists have with pride and ethical conviction embraced the Pro-Choice religion as their own.

Sorry Xi — we’re all out of Nobels at the moment (COVID shutdown, y’know), but we have found several glow-in-the-dark Golden Globes that all of us here agree you deserve.

It’s amazing that stories like this are now just coming to light. These revelations should have been discover a year ago, we gave China another year to destroy, manipulate of hide data.

    Democrats and scientists have admitted that it was more important to make Trump look bad than actually do anything helpful about the virus. Fauci and the lot should be charged with accessories to millions of murders across the globe.

plus a year of our medical researchers to do the same as the Chinese.

“but did not say it gave more weight to the ‘lab leak’ theory”

Of course not, that wouldn’t support the narrative.

What is amazing is that Fauci diverted our tax dollars to help China do this, and it appears that he has continued to run interference for China.

Isn’t this treason?
