Dr. Deborah Birx: Covid “Came Out of the Box Ready to Infect”

Dr. Deborah Birx: Covid “Came Out of the Box Ready to Infect”

After pushing hard to impose “two weeks to flatten the curve” that morphed into more than 2.5 years of covid hysteria, Scarf Lady is back and trying to regain credibility.

The last time we checked on President Trump’s former covid advisor, Dr. Deborah Birx, she was retiring after being ousted in late 2020 for hypocritically defying her holiday get-together guidance issued to the general public.

The infamous Scarf Lady is back. In a recent interview with the U.K. Daily Mail, Birx indicated that the SARS-CoV-2 virus (which causes covid) could have leaked from a Wuhan laboratory where scientists were working on vaccines for similar viruses.

Infectious diseases expert and former presidential Covid adviser Dr Deborah Birx told The Mail on Sunday that coronavirus ‘came out of the box ready to infect’ when it emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2020 [Date should be 2019, not 2020 as The Daily Mail wrote].

The adviser said most viruses take months or years to become highly infectious to humans. But, Dr Birx said, Covid ‘was already more infectious than flu when it first arrived’.

She said that meant Covid was either an ‘abnormal thing of nature’ or that Chinese scientists were ‘working on coronavirus vaccines’ and became infected.

‘It happens, labs aren’t perfect, people aren’t perfect, we make mistakes and there can be contamination,’ she said.

Birx pointed a finger directly at China, indicating that Chinese officials covered up the leak and how transmissible it was between humans.

Birx said Covid’s infectiousness was consistent with a virus which had been experimented on in a lab.

‘In laboratories you grow the virus in human cells, allowing it to adapt more. Each time it passes through human cells it becomes more adapted,’ she said.

Because people can catch Covid asymptomatically – meaning they don’t show symptoms – Dr Birx argues a Wuhan scientist could have easily walked out of the lab with it.

‘Someone working in the lab with one of the strains could’ve caught it and not known they had it,’ she said.

Dr Birx also added that lives could’ve been saved if China had admitted the virus spread asymptomatically, when it was first discovered.

As a long-time supporter of the lab-leak theory for covid’s origins, I would have welcomed her statements more if they had been issued in early 2020. It was challenging to get information and share it once the media followed Dr. Anthony Fauci’s narrative that we lab-leak proponents were ‘conspiracy theorists.’

A review by Jeffrey Tucker of the Brownstone Institute completed of Birx’s book, “Silent Invasion: The Untold Story of the Trump Administration, Covid-19, and Preventing the Next Pandemic Before It’s Too Late,” may offer a hint as to why Scarf Lady is back trying to burnish her credibility.

It is clear that lockdown mania and the next vaccine craze have been devastating to the country and much of the world. In her book, which was published in April of this year, Birx appears too willing to impose mandates without having any available date for herself to justify it.

Recall that it was she who was tasked – by Anthony Fauci – with doing the really crucial thing of talking Donald Trump into green-lighting the lockdowns that began on March 12, 2020, and continued to their final hard-core deployment on March 16. This was the “15 Days to Flatten the Curve” that turned into two years in many parts of the country.

Her book admits that it was a two-level lie from the beginning.

“We had to make these palatable to the administration by avoiding the obvious appearance of a full Italian lockdown,” she writes. “At the same time, we needed the measures to be effective at slowing the spread, which meant matching as closely as possible what Italy had done—a tall order. We were playing a game of chess in which the success of each move was predicated on the one before it.”


“At this point, I wasn’t about to use the words lockdown or shutdown. If I had uttered either of those in early March, after being at the White House only one week, the political, nonmedical members of the task force would have dismissed me as too alarmist, too doom-and-gloom, too reliant on feelings and not facts. They would have campaigned to lock me down and shut me up.”

In other words, she wanted to go full CCP just like Italy but didn’t want to say that. Crucially, she knew for sure that two weeks was not the real plan. “I left the rest unstated: that this was just a starting point.”

“No sooner had we convinced the Trump administration to implement our version of a two-week shutdown than I was trying to figure out how to extend it,” she admits.

It appears that the book is the work of a fabulist, so I will not be reviewing it.  Personally, I loathe Birx just a little less than Fauci. She needs to go back to private life and scarf shopping.

That woman needs to put a cork in it and slink off to retirement where the likes of Lois Lerner are found.

Birx isn’t trying to “burnish” her credibility. She is trying to establish she still has credibility by fessing up. Sorry but by sacrificing science on the altar of politics, she also sacrificed her own professional credibility. She also contributed mightily to wrecking the credibility if the scientific community itself. Now “science” has been reduced to becoming a gospel to the religion of the Fourth Reich. Oaths and personal integrity mean nothing anymore.

I don’t care where on Earth the dastardly deed was done: it was financed with American tax dollars.

The complacence of American taxpayers and our willingness to turn over decisions to “experts” will be the cause of our demise (and I don’t mean demise from “Covid”).

And yet morons still argue the Deep State ‘doesn’t exist’ and we’re ‘just being paranoid’.

This woman is the absolute epitome of everything that we’ve said about the Democrats and their lies.

They lie themselves into a ‘compromise’, and literally before the ink is dry they’re plotting how to get more.

So Birx admits ‘coronavirus ‘came out of the box ready to infect’ . No sh*t, Sherlock. That’s what happens when you treasonous morons build viruses in weapons labs with the enemy.

Sorry, we already have a Captain Obvious, so we’ll just call you Bruce.

“Dr Birx said, Covid ‘was already more infectious than flu when it first arrived’.’

Well, your lot PAID the commie lab to weaponize it, so imagine how pissed you would have been if it had been a dud.

It came put of the box accidentally? Maybe it came out the box intentionally. I wouldn’t put anything past the CCP. Does anyone notice how Faux-xi lied to Rand Paul and is not being prosecuted for perjury? She and Faux-Xi and their snake oil nostrums are one reason some of us no longer trust “scientists.”

It is gonna be a tough pill to swallow when people realize we intentionally fund bioweapons research outside of our country at facilities where we can say “Oops! Escaped!”

Wuhan is just one of those. I wonder how many and where they are.

Is she looking for a gig on CNN or MSNBC?

Every in the “real – science ” trump administration told her that –

Is she just now figuring it out? May she should not have been listening to NPR < nbc, etc,

I take exception with this statement: “ Because people can catch Covid asymptomatically – meaning they don’t show symptoms – Dr Birx argues a Wuhan scientist could have easily walked out of the lab with it.”

This was one of the main drivers of the panic. Because this was broadcast time after time, it apparently became a truth. Nature magazine posted a study, I have linked in the past that did blood assay analysis on 10 million Wuhan residents from which 300 were found to be asymptomatic carriers, but, none of these carrier’s contacts ever developed symptoms. Further, the CDC was confronted with this asymptomatic transmission premise and they admitted they have no actual documentation that supports transmission from “asymptomatic carriers”.

    Took me a second or two. I see this as empirical evidence

      I don’t know of any evidence that the virus we mustn’t name is spread by people who caught it and show no symptoms. This having been said, I invite you to consider who published the article (after getting government clearance). I also invite you to read the entire article and tell us how credible you find some other statements in it.

Welcome to the show, pal!

Does anyone know if she broke any laws or lied to Congress?
What a rat.

way too many people, including this author, like to look towards lab LEAK w/o considering PURPOSEFUL spreading.
short sighted position really.

It’s little wonder why these people always look like death warmed over, evil rots from the inside out.

Better lose the scarf…”she didn’t hang herself.”

Dr. Birx boasted of getting Mike Pence’s support in undermining Scott Atlas’s advice and making sure it wasn’t followed. Has a single reporter bothered to ask Pence whether this is true?

    henrybowman in reply to retiredcantbefired. | July 21, 2022 at 2:55 am

    Pence and Trump are backing competing governor primary candidates in Arizona — Pence is backing the McCain machine candidate, Trump the charismatic newslady. I suspect the Republican voters of Arizona are going to let Pence know quite resoundingly how they feel about him. And McCain.

      retiredcantbefired in reply to henrybowman. | July 21, 2022 at 11:31 am

      Of course, I would like to see Mike Pence’s preferred candidate get clobbered in the Arizona primary. But if Pence did what Birx is now saying he did, he should become persona non grata throughout the Republican party.

There was no accidental “lab leak”. The evidence is clear that this was a purposeful release of a virus that both the left in the US and the CCP knew would be highly contagious, and that they could and would use it to steal an election they other wise had no ability to win.

Fauci, Birx, the NIH, the CDC, and the WHO were all part of it.

I wish to heaven she had been removed along with her mentor at the beginning of this thing if not earlier
