Wuhan Lab Leak ‘Is Now the Most Likely Origin of COVID’ – MIT/Harvard Scientist Tells UK MPs

Wuhan Lab Leak ‘Is Now the Most Likely Origin of COVID’ – MIT/Harvard Scientist Tells UK MPs

Dr. Alina Chan also highlighted the virus’ unique feature indicating probable genetic engineering.

An MIT/Harvard Scientist went before a panel of United Kingdom’s Members of Parliament (MPs) and asserted a Wuhan lab is likely the original source of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Harvard scientist Dr Alina Chan told the Science and Technology Select Committee that it is ‘reasonable’ to believe that Covid was genetically engineered in China.

She also said that the Chinese Communist Party’s cover-up of the initial outbreak in Wuhan two years ago and attempts to sabotage the World Health Organisation’s inquiry into the origins of the pandemic made the lab-leak theory likely.

Tory peer Lord Ridley, who has co-authored a book on the origin of the virus with Dr Chan, said the fact that experts have still not found the animal host that would support a natural origin despite two years of research supports claim that Covid came from a lab.

Dr Chan highlighted the virus’ unique feature, called the furin cleavage site, as being  indicative of genetic modification of another virus.

“A proposal was leaked showing that EcoHealth and the Wuhan Institute of Virology were developing a pipeline for inserting novel furin cleavage sites. So, you find these scientists who said in early 2018 ‘I’m going to put horns on horses’ and at the end of 2019 a unicorn turns up in Wuhan city.”

The furin cleavage point on Covid-19 is part of the spike protein which helps it to enter cells.

Spike proteins are little grappling hooks which lock onto receptors on human cells. They have two sections, a binding section and a cell-entry section.

Once attached, the virus makes use of the enzyme furin – which is present in human cells – to snip away the bound section, leaving a space for the cell-entry section of the spike protein to fuse with the cell membrane and get inside. It is the reason Covid-19 is so infectious.

Chan also indicated it was simply a matter of time before the true origins of COVID-19 would become known.

Right now it’s not safe for people who know about the origin of this pandemic to come forward. It might be five years from now, it might be 50 years from now, but we live in an era where there’s so much data being collected and stored…we just need a credible, systematic investigation, she said.

Note the glacial progression of logic, here, as begrudging acknowledgment of the full scale of the evil and malevolent intent of the Chinese communist leadership becomes apparent to those dim-witted Leftists and Dhimmi-crats who are too steeped in their fanatical and obsessive Trump-hatred to think rationally and acknowledge the obvious. We’ve moved from the utterly absurd animal “wet market” theory, to the slightly more plausible “lab leak” theory. The latter conceit will eventually yield to the far more logical conclusion that the Wuhan virus bioweapon’s release represented an intentional attack; an act of war — years after this was fairly obvious to rational observers, given China’s increasingly unabashed bellicosity and viciously unapologetic pursuit of its own self-interest, in foreign affairs.

The Chinese leadership evaluated the Dhimmi-crats’ and media’s ceaseless and vicious attacks, sabotage and subversion against President Trump, and properly understood that they could rather easily manipulate the situation to their advantage, via a well-timed biological attack, helping to oust President Trump and install a meek, incompetent, corrupt, tottering, feckless, dim-witted and malleable vassal-puppet, in dotard Xi-den. U.S. intelligence agencies — already acting as de facto adjuncts of the Dhimmi-crat Party, and, already engaged in anti-Trump subversion — were only too happy to bury their heads in the sand and laughably declare the evidence allegedly “inconclusive” on the question of whether the Wuhan virus was intentionally released.

    If the Wuhan virus was intended as a bioweapon, I’d expect it to be engineered to be more deadly than the Spanish Flu for those under retirement age. It isn’t; the USA death toll (or “excess deaths”, not all of which is from the virus) is about the same as in 1918-1919, on a population two or three times the size. And it was released on the Chinese first, If that was a bioweapon, its development and release was gross stupidity piled upon gross incompetence. Not that this is impossible from any government agency, but it’s rather more likely that it was part of a “gain of function” experiment that leaked from a careless lab.

    OTOH, the response once Chinese authorities recognized there was a new, highly contagious, and slightly dangerous virus loose in Wuhan was pretty close to an act of war upon the entire world: they closed down travel from Wuhan within China, but continued international travel, all the while lying that it was not transmissible between humans.

      They didn’t say it was done to be a weapon or intentionally released in China. They simply said it was engineered in the Chinese lab, somehow got out and the Chinese government has tried to cover up the origin.
      A concern is, how many other potentially dangerous things are being done there and in other places that just haven’t escaped to cause harm in the world (yet)?
      Who knows and who authorized and supported this and how will we (we won’t) hold them accountable?

        Peabody in reply to NGAREADER. | December 16, 2021 at 10:32 am

        Even if the virus was being developed as a biological weapon, there is no way of knowing if the research was fully completed or if it was in the developmental stage at the time. The Chinese have many biological agents they are working on in various stages of development. And in Communist China there is no line differentiating between civilian and military applications. Most likely they were still working on this particular virus and it was released accidently.

      The immediate effects from the virus and the vaccine are minor compared to the
      effects to follow in the months and years to follow.

      alaskabob in reply to markm. | December 16, 2021 at 4:18 pm

      One of the ideas is that the release of inadvertent but China decided it wasn’t going to take the hit alone and taking down the whole world was the option. We don’t know everything but we know the China hid a lot. Run the bat virus through “humanized” mice with ACE-2 receptors and push gain of function. Test communicability with ferrets…successful. Oh.. and ferrets are kin to mink and guess what has happened to the mink farms across the world… yep.. catastrophic deaths from Covid. Upon release and suppressed news… China did let the release become a bioweapon.

      “If the Wuhan virus was intended as a bioweapon, I’d expect it to be engineered to be more deadly than the Spanish Flu for those under retirement age”

      Are we sure about this? Think about what is going on in China? It is beset with a rapidly aging population that will be a burden to support by the dwindling youth population. Shedding the aged and sick would help out from a fiscal perspective very well, and free up resources from taking care of the old to other more youthful ,vigorous, and glorious pursuits.

      So perhaps it was not engineered to attack the West, but to cull it’s own increasingly aged, frail, and dependent population.

      There is no evidence of this as far as I know, but there could be, as depraved as it is, a rationale for intentional development and release.

      However, given the reaction of the PRC to the release, its lies and draconian response, which we very unfortunately emulated, I do not think it was an intentional release, though it was intentionally created.

    Wait until people realize that our government was the one funding the gain of function research into corona viruses at the Wuhan lab.

      Ben Kent in reply to Dathurtz. | December 16, 2021 at 6:22 pm


      It’s already known that Fauci had a meaningful role in funding “gain-of-function” research at the Wuhan Lab AND then covered up his role in funding gain of function.

      Of course the Covid virus was engineered – why would they try to cover it up unless it was engineered.

      Fauci did the cover up AND he lied to Congress. Dems are making a BIG mistake by supporting this guy. He will become a liability to Dems as more people come to realize that the evil-scientist villain in this story is FAUCI.

    Watching this is painful… like watching the ape in 2001 who wants to approach the black monolith, but is terrified to come closer, reach out, and touch it.

Sure, why not after a year of denial so complete that you could be banned from various social platforms and have entire YouTube channels demonetized it is now ok to think this thought.

The next question is how it got loose?

Was it an accidental release that infected lab workers and spread from there? Or, did the PLA engineer an outdoor test of the virus that went horribly wrong?

    mailman in reply to MattMusson. | December 16, 2021 at 9:59 am

    The only people dumb enough to do a live outdoor test are Democrats. I suspect this is more in the realm of accidental release than anything else.

    Peabody in reply to MattMusson. | December 16, 2021 at 10:42 am

    “The next question is how it got loose?”

    It’s not surprising that it got loose. They are not too careful in China and the Chinese government is not concerned about accidents or injuries. They have different priorities in China.

      NGAREADER in reply to Peabody. | December 16, 2021 at 9:02 pm

      They have a lot of spare humans, a billion or so, and little regard for their lives, as long as they aren’t the ruling party elites.

Once again, that which was censored in social media not that long ago turns out to be fact. It should speak volumes that this happens so consistently.

It does not take an educated mind to see that this is manufactured and an intentional act of war. Beijing should be leveled.

CuriousJustice | December 16, 2021 at 9:04 am

This is why censorship has to stop. Anyone last year who even suggested that this was a possibility was banned and silenced. Same as with everyone who said Rittenhouse was not guilty.

If Trump or DeSantis was present-the strategy would be two fold-first raise sanctions and tarffs on China to the point where China would be prostrate economically. If the CCP refused to give access to the lab, then level it with a drone and let the CCP’s globalist partners pay the bills for any collateral damage.

The 1977 flu was a thawed out 1955 flu that China accidentally released while testing vaccines.

So there’s precedent for China screwing up vaccine research.

Suppose missiles could drop bombs on cities and there were no way to tell who launched them? And no one interested in developing the technology to find out who did it?

Every major nation does biological weapons research, and the scientific community thinks it’s wrong to find out the origin of a massively lethal pandemic.

Not just wrong to sling accusations, but wrong to investigate.

Yet those of us the said this very early on were savaged. I’m waiting for the real apologies.

I do not trust anything Anthony Fauci says about Wuhan or the virus. Fauci is not an elected official and therefore does not have to disclose his finances, but R F Kennedy Jr said that Fauci’s commercial interests bypassed the rules at the agency. Without an investigation there is no telling how many things Fauci is invested in and how much this has affected his work.

The Wuhan Flu seems it wasn’t potent enough but to already weakened people, but the Democrats Propaganda Ministry and likes of Governors who upped the death toll, and counting everyone with it who died as a Covjd fatality did what the Wuhan Flu missed.
Either way it locked down the population, make mass mail voting possible and got rid of Orange Man.

    Ben Kent in reply to Skip. | December 16, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    True. All the Chinese goals were achieved.

    First question to ask when considering suspects to a crime — “who benefitted most ?”

The next question is whether the Gain of Function Research on bat coronaviruses paid for by NIH/Fauci had any role in the development & spread of this virus

They will probably release “information” that Dr. Alina Chan comes from some diehard anti-Communist family and thus discredit her.

Leak my ass.
This was no accident.
