New Covid Origin Narrative from the Experts (General)

by dulan drift, Friday, August 13, 2021, 08:37 (166 days ago)

I noticed Lipkin quietly back-flipped in May 2021 when he admitted the virus could have escaped from a lower security BSL-2 lab, the Wuhan Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

He told the journalist Donald McNeil in May 2021 that he was alarmed when he learned that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was conducting research on similar viruses at a lower level of protection.

Lipkin: People should not be looking at bat viruses in BSL-2 lab. My view has changed.

(Note: Don't bother clicking on the link unless you want to be infuriated - slimy lab-leak denying journalists, Donald McNeil from NYT trying to slither his way out.)

Rachael Bunyan now reports that Peter Embarek, head of the sham WHO investigation, is doing the same, in greater detail.

Embarek: An employee who was infected in the field by taking samples falls under one of the probable hypotheses. This is where the virus jumps directly from a bat to a human. In that case, it would then be a laboratory worker instead of a random villager or other person who has regular contact with bats. So it is actually in the probable category.

It is interesting that the laboratory moved on 2 December 2019. This is the period when it all started, and you know what, when you move a laboratory, it is disruptive to everything.

You also have to move the virus collection, sample collection and other collections from one place to another.

This whole procedure is always a disruptive element in a laboratory's daily workflow, so at some point it will also be interesting to look at that period and this laboratory.

Lipkin is a known kite-flier - he was the celebrity scientist vehemently promoting the CCP's version from the beginning, then kite-flew the entire WHO investigation report months before it happened, including the 'outside China' story.

So it's interesting that he changed his tune to a possible BSL-2 related origin - and the others, such as Embarek, are following. Here's what might be coming as the new official experts' story:

A low-level lab worker from the BSL-2 lab was collecting/handling samples and failed to follow proper safety regulations and became infected.

Yes, they might just be back-flipping by degrees to cover their arses - plenty of that going on - but it could be the new narrative.

The advantages are:

  • it saves WIV from ultimate blame
  • exonerates collaborating western scientists
  • side-steps the 'engineered-in-a-lab' scenario
  • pins it on some nameless low-level lab worker
  • you can still argue, if it was collecting bat samples from a cave, that it was a natural crossover that would have inevitably happened anyway

No doubt the caveat will be 'it will take years of painstaking research - and we may never know the real answer' ...

Wuhan Lab Wanted to Genetically Enhance Bat Viruses to Study Human Risks, Documents Show

The fact that this is not a bigger story demonstrates how effectively the narrative on the origin of this virus is being controlled by the larger media. Newsweek is not a fringe source of information.

EcoHealth GoF DEFUSE project

by dulan drift, Saturday, September 25, 2021, 20:22 (122 days ago) @ dan

scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology planned to genetically alter viruses to make them more infectious for humans and release them into bat caves.

This is the latest DRASTIC revelation. How insane is that?

Says they didn't get the funding - though it was seriously considered - still doesn't mean they didn't do it. How much does it cost to release a bat virus and see what happens?

And yeah - the fact this story is not on-loop on every media outlet around the world is a sad reflection of where we are. They don't want to know.

God could come down from on high and expose the lab-leak but the media still wouldn't print it.

Surely it's way over time to bring Baric, Daszak and the rest of the EcoHealth crew in for questioning and investigate the living shit out of them. The fact that hasn't already happened worries me that they're being protected - that cover-up extends to law enforcement.

But hey, let's keep vilifying the unvaxxed!

EcoHealh/WIV Gof DEFUSE project

by dulan drift, Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 06:44 (120 days ago) @ dulan drift

Here's another article about the bat-shit crazy stuff going on with EcoHealth/WIV scientists.

The name of the project - DEFUSE - is one of those things that would be funny - if it wasn't so terrifying.

The plan was to defuse the threat of bat coronaviruses - by making worse ones.

Among the more controversial proposed experiments presented in the application were the creation of bat coronavirus chimeras that would contain human-specific furin cleavage sites (FCS), the introduction of these viruses into humanized and "batified" mice, and a grandiose plan to "vaccinate" wild bats in caves against coronaviruses.

The mention of inserting FCS is significant because scientists consider the presence of these on the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 to be one of the reasons why the virus is able to easily infect humans. Within the betacoronaviruses of sarbecovirus lineage B, the polybasic furin cleavage site is unique to SARS-CoV-2, according to News Medical Life Sciences.

Scientists who favor the lab-leak hypothesis point to the unusual presence of the FCS as an indication of manipulation in a laboratory. Advocates of the natural origin hypothesis argue that although the FCS is not documented in other sarbecoviruses, it does appear in other distant relatives such as MERS.

From what i've investigated about MERS, it's origins are also very very murky. The official narrative about it's emergence from bats to camels to humans was written by ... guess who? Daszak and Lipkin!

EcoHealth DEFUSE project doc link

by dulan drift, Saturday, October 02, 2021, 11:55 (115 days ago) @ dulan drift

The DEFUSE project - to release GoF bat viruses into wild bats - to somehow defuse the threat of bat viruses - by making more of them! - was broken by DRASTIC.

@billybostickson has posted links to the leaked docs here.

He's come to the same conclusion i did - just because it didn't receive funding doesn't mean they didn't go ahead with it.

Only problem i see is, I would imagine, and reports are, that massive numbers of bats and other animals have been tested without finding the virus. For no-lab leakers, evidence of the virus in bats would be a get out of jail free card.

Therefore, if WIV/EcoHealth did do their crazy DEFUSE project, then it may not have been with Covid. Unless they succeeded in infecting themselves but failed to get it to take hold in bats.

Even Xi Jinping thinks it was a lab-leak

SCMP:
China must increase its oversight of laboratories handling dangerous pathogens, President Xi Jinping
has told the Communist Party leadership.

Biosecurity is an important part of national security and a force that “affects and can even reshape the world”, Xi told the Politburo, the party’s top policymaking body on Wednesday, according to state news agency Xinhua.

It was the Politburo’s first ever group study session specifically focused on biosecurity, highlighting the importance the Chinese leadership has attached to the issue since the onset of the pandemic.

It looks like he assumes it's going to keep going strong as well.

China has built a 5,000-room quarantine center for overseas arrivals. It could be the first of many

"Travelers will be transferred on buses directly from the airport, and confined to their rooms for at least two weeks. Each room is fitted with a video chat camera and an artificial intelligence-powered thermometer, with three meals a day delivered by robots -- all designed to minimize direct contact with staff members."

No doubt each room will be fitted with additional video and AI capabilities not mentioned here. No thanks. I think I'll pass.

Is China about to flip on origin?

You can (be) check(ed) in any time we like - but you can never leave ...

Here's my take on what's going down with the latest hints coming out of China. It's very similar to the original 'fictional' novel i conceived a year ago.

1. EcoHealth/WIV created the GoF bat virus.
2. It either escaped - or was deliberately released.
3. CCP went into cover-up mode - in conjunction with the west - for the common good blah blah blah
4. CCP is now having second thoughts. We are the victims here - we should never have let those fucking UK/US/Aus scientists (EcoHealth) into our top lab! The natural origin pangolin story that they promised would work has collapsed - now everyone is blaming us!
5. We throw Daszak and Baric to the wolves - say we had no idea what they were up to - Bat Lady was duped. For our domestic audience we say they were agents working for the US intelligence service. Look here's proof they were being funded by USAMRIID!!! (which they were) The whole thing was a plot to bring us down!

In the novel they were arrested/tried/jailed in China - but that's probably unlikely as it's hard to see Daszak and Baric going back there in this atmosphere.

New WHO narrative

by dulan drift, Wednesday, November 03, 2021, 19:00 (83 days ago) @ dulan drift

Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO investigator: We think between now and the end of 2022, this is the point where we get control over this virus ... where we can significantly reduce severe disease and death.

Reuters: By the end of 2022, the WHO aims for 70% of the world's population to be vaccinated.

Van Kerkhove: If we reach that target, we will be in a very, very different situation epidemiologically.

Currently only 3% of the 1.2 billion in Africa are vaxxed - so you'd want to get cracking.

But we're also told the virus will likely continue to mutate, requiring annual booster shots tailored to the latest circulating variants which we actually need bi-annually according to current health expert advice - so it sounds like a tail-chasing exercise.

Reuters: In the meantime, she worries about countries lifting COVID precautions prematurely.

They'll never let go of their restriction lever - even as they say we're transitioning from a pandemic to an endemic.

It's an interesting article - a lot of big statements from scientists suddenly downplaying Covid. I wonder if it's really over - or do they mean it's the same - but now that we've got the bio-state ruling everything, we're not going to talk about deaths so much as before?
