It Probably Started as Just a Lab Accident

Intriguingly, when the wildlife market was closed in January, a report appeared in the Beijing News identifying Huang Yanling, a researcher at the Institute of Virology, as ‘patient zero’ – the first person to be infected.

‘Virus collection, culture, isolation, or animal infection would pose a substantial risk of infection of a lab worker, and from the lab worker then the public.’

He concluded that the evidence left ‘a basis to rule out [that coronavirus is] a lab construct, but no basis to rule out a lab accident’.

A study by the South China University of Technology concluded that Covid-19 ‘probably’ originated in the Centre for Disease Control – although shortly after its publication, the research paper was removed from a social networking site for scientists and researchers.

__ Leaked from a Lab

International authorities agree that the 2019-2020 ongoing epidemic began in Wuhan and rapidly spread outward from there. But thanks to the Communist Party of China and the World Health Organization, the details have been muddied beyond that:

China clamps down on research information related to coronavirus origins

China “disappears” research on coronavirus from internet

But we can try to piece the story together from what remains:

According to one unverified claim, scientists at the institute could have become infected after being sprayed with blood containing the virus, and then passed it on to the local community. __ DM

What seems to have begun as a simple lab accident quickly turned into a tragic viral outbreak in the city that hosted the lab. Authorities first ignored the outbreak. Then they tried to cover it up. But when it grew too large to conceal, it appears that authorities decided to consciously use the virus to make sure that China would not suffer the economic and strategic disadvantages of infection alone.

If China and the WHO had acted early, they could have slashed global spread by 95%. CCP officials made the choice to mislead the world, and destroy the evidence, instead.

The laboratory at the centre of scrutiny over the coronavirus pandemic has been carrying out research on bats from the cave which scientists believe is the original source of the devastating outbreak


Even after authorities had already learned about the deadly human to human spread of the SARS-like novel coronavirus, they allowed hundreds of thousands of travelers to leave Wuhan — and roughly 15,000 to 20,000 travelers a day to fly to the US and many more to Europe — all the while denying through the WHO that there was any danger of the virus escaping or doing harm to the world. Sadly, leaders of North American and European countries took those denials and reassurances from Beijing seriously.

ResearchGate published the South China University of Technology study, which said: “It is plausible that the virus leaked around and some of them [lab workers] contaminated the initial patients in this epidemic, though solid proofs are needed in future study.”

The study concluded:

In summary, somebody was entangled with the evolution of 2019-nCoV coronavirus. In addition to origins of natural recombination and intermediate host, the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan. Safety level may need to be reinforced in high risk biohazardous laboratories. Regulations may be taken to relocate these laboratories far away from city center[s] and other densely populated places.

One of the Wuhan CDC researchers quarantined himself after being exposed to bat blood, and also found a tick on the bat that could have spread the disease, according to the university report.

Research on recombinant forms of SARS-like coronaviruses has been going on in labs around the world, but especially in China.

Here is an example of a recombinant study on SARS-like viruses meant to help develop a vaccine:

To test a possible route of emergence from the noncultivable Bat-SCoV to human SARS-CoV, wedesigned a consensus Bat-SCoV genome and replaced the Bat-SCoVSpike receptor-binding domain (RBD) with the SARS-CoV RBD (Bat- RBD). Bat-SRBD was infectious in cell culture and in mice and was efficiently neutralized by antibodies specific for both bat and humanCoV Spike proteins. Rational design, synthesis, and recovery of hypothetical recombinant viruses can be used to investigate mechanisms of trans-species movement of zoonoses and has great potential to aid in rapid public health responses to known or predicted emerging microbial threats. __ PNAS Oct 2008

Here is a description of a 2015 “gain of function” study that augmented the ability of a SARS coronavirus to cause infections.

Both of the above experiments took place in US labs before the US government put an end to “gain of function” research on pathogenic viruses. But back in China, no such prohibition was attached to research on making viruses more lethal. In Wuhan and other Chinese lab locations, it was business as usual.

And Chinese scientists likely made use of their liberties to explore viral lethality combined with viral contagiousness. Scientists made expedition after expedition to Chinese bat caves to collect specimens for their advanced bat virus research.

Results of the research were published in November 2017 under the heading: ‘Discovery of a rich gene pool of bat SARS-related coronaviruses provides new insights into the origin of SARS coronavirus.’

The exercise was summarised as: ‘Bats in a cave in Yunnan, China were captured and sampled for coronaviruses used for lab experiments.

‘All sampling procedures were performed by veterinarians with approval from the Animal Ethics Committee of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

‘Bat samplings were conducted ten times from April 2011 to October 2015 at different seasons in their natural habitat at a single location (cave) in Kunming, Yunnan Province, China. Bats were trapped and faecal swab samples were collected.’

Another study, published in April 2018, was titled ‘fatal swine acute diarrhoea syndrome caused by an HKU2-related coronavirus of bat origin’ and described the research as such: ‘Following a 2016 bat-related coronavirus outbreak on Chinese pig farms, bats were captured in a cave and samples were taken.

Experimenters grew the virus in a lab and injected it into three-day-old piglets. Intestinal samples from sick piglets were ground up and fed to other piglets as well.’

Senior Ministers say that while the latest intelligence does not dispute the virus was ‘zoonotic’ – originating in animals – it no longer rules out that the virus first spread to humans after leaking from a Wuhan laboratory. __ DM

Mainland China is frantic to stamp out rumors of either accidental or intentional spread of Wuhan CoV-19 on the part of Chinese scientists or officials. The communist party has recruited large news organizations in North America, the UK, and Europe in the attempt to stamp out any investigation into Beijing’s culpability in either the creation of or the spread of this recombinant novel coronavirus.

But the coverup is often more costly than the original crime. In this case, both the knowledge that the CCP was probably trying to create a more communicable and lethal SARS (the original crime) AND the coverup that has allowed millions around the world to be infected with Wuhan CoV-19 — and hundreds of thousands to die — are yet more evidence to hold against mainland China’s bloody regime.

Many fingers point to at least one of the Wuhan labs as ground zero for this global pandemic.

Whole genome analysis of SARS-CoV-2 revealed ~96% genomic similarity with bat CoV (RaTG13) and clustered together in phylogenetic tree. Furthermore, RaTGl3 also showed 97.43% spike protein similarity with SARS-CoV-2 suggesting that RaTGl3 is the closest strain. However, RBD and key amino acid residues supposed to be crucial for human-to-human and cross-species transmission are homologues between SARS-CoV-2 and pangolin CoVs. These results from our analysis suggest that SARS-CoV-2 is a recombinant virus of bat and pangolin CoVs. Moreover, this study also reports mutations in coding regions of 125 SARS-CoV-2 genomes signifying its aptitude for evolution. In short, our findings propose that homologous recombination has been occurred between bat and pangolin CoVs that triggered cross-species transmission and emergence of SARS-CoV-2, and, during the ongoing outbreak, SARS-CoV-2 is still evolving for its adaptability. __

The CCP Aims to Cover Up the Virus’ Origins

How to explain this extreme paranoia on the part of the CCP?

How Beijing muzzled the “bat woman:”

The director of the SOAS China Institute in London, Professor Steve Tsang, said that the Chinese government is more concerned with ‘controlling the narrative’ surrounding coronavirus than public health or economic fallout.

He told The Guardian: ‘If these documents are authentic it would suggest the government really wants to control the narrative about the origins of Covid-19 very tightly.’

The source who found the cached versions of the websites said they were concerned at what appeared to be a governmental coverup. __

Recovery and Immunity Are Increasing; Infection Rate Declines

Incidence Rates Decline


In the United States and Canada, the weekly-averaged daily compound growth rates of confirmed cases of infection are now about 8%, down from the benchmark values of 23% and 17% respectively that obtained in the three weeks to March 14, when Mr Trump declared the pandemic to be a national emergency. _ WUWT

Infection rates are slowing, more people are recovering, and we are learning from random testing that a lot more people have had very mild infections — and are recovered — than anyone realized.

… in the town of Gangelt, one of the epicenters of the German outbreak, a random sample of 1000 residents taken by researchers at the University of Bonn found that, though only 2% of the sample showed symptoms, 15% had been infected and showed antibodies. Yet the confirmed cases reported by Germany as a whole to April 11 were just 125,452, or 0.15% of the population of 84 million.

In short, the confirmed cases, which tend to be the more serious ones, appear to undercount the true extent of infection by two orders of magnitude. This came as a surprise to many, but to those who have been following these daily updates it will have been no surprise, because, based on casting back deaths three weeks, I was able to discover that the number of cases of infection was being under-reported by somewhere between 1 and 3 orders of magnitude.

This is good news for two reasons. First, we are much further along the road to population-wide immunity than the confirmed-case counts had suggested. Secondly, the case fatality rate appears to be a great deal smaller than the ratio of deaths to reported cases had indicated. My original rough-and-ready calculations based on casting back deaths in the U.S. population suggested a case fatality rate of 0.34%. The German researchers concluded that it was 0.37%.

Immunity after recovery is not forever, but it should be long enough to give us some time to make better treatments and vaccines.

Antibody testing shows SARS-CoV immunity peaks at around four months and offers protection for roughly two to three years. As Preeti Malani, chief health officer and a professor of medicine at the University of Michigan, said in a video interview with JAMA Editor in Chief Howard Bauchner,this period presents “a pretty good time line for thinking about vaccines and therapeutics” for COVID-19. __

This story is murky and dark, and leads to the vilest reaches of the human mind and heart. The dark question remains, why such a virus would be actively sought after by Chinese communists, and what potential uses were intended for it and others on the shelf beside it — before its accidental release into the city of Wuhan and an apparent subsequent decision to actively propagate the virus to the rest of the world?

The ongoing CCP coverup is perfectly reasonable for the propagandist regime, for what nation wants to be suspected of planning mass biological warfare on the rest of the world? Such global suspicions would make all of its other plans more difficult to carry out. Fortunately for mainland China, there are plenty of journalists and politicians for sale, all around the world.

The documentary that looks at possible laboratory origins for the Wuhan virus


  • go to work
  • stay away from crowds
  • maintain a 2 meter distance
  • wash your hands
  • wear a mask in public
  • don’t touch your face
  • don’t shake hands
  • keep public surfaces clean/disinfected
  • wear cotton gloves in public

In the grocery store:

  • Go shopping at a time that’s less busy. If you type in the store’s name and location in Google search, a box often will pop up showing when foot traffic there is highest.
  • Take germicide with you. Use it to wipe your hands and the cart before and after you shop.
  • Use a credit or debit card. That way, you don’t have to hand over bills or receive change. Also, use your own pen to sign receipts. If you can, use a virtual payment system like Apple Pay so that you don’t have to open your wallet at all.
  • More at source

    Ending the lockdowns

    What are they trying to hide here, anyway?

    Leaked from labs

    It is clear that communist China and the WHO intentionally lied to governments in North America, Europe, the UK, and elsewhere. As a result, the Chinese viral lightning bolt caused far more damage to the free west than if those places had been properly warned. No other conclusion can be drawn other than that the effort to mislead — and cause maximum damage — was intentional.

      Who says one person cannot change the world? Just think of the Chinese lab tech that did not wash the blood droplet off his shoe.

    2. bob sykes says:

      There is no evidence whatsoever that COVID-19 is a synthetic, lab virus. Coronaviruses occur naturally and include the common cold. Occasionally, we get a bad one like SARS-CoV in 2003.

      COVID-19 in not the flu. Influenza viruses are a different category.

      All these viruses are naturally generated by the Chinese rice paddy system, which mixes humans, wildlife, pigs and chickens in close proximity. The human and animal viruses mix, recombine, and mutate, and produce new diseases annually. Last year a pig flu wiped out the Chinese pig herds. In 1918, we got the Spanish Flu.
