Daily Mail: New Study Claims COVID-19 “Has No Credible Natural Ancestor”

If the lab leak theory is true and COVID-19 was created a lab, shouldn’t virologists have been able to tell by looking at the virus? Shouldn’t they have known it was created in a lab early on in the pandemic?

Daily Mail:

“An explosive new study claims that Chinese scientists created COVID-19 in a Wuhan lab, then tried to cover their tracks by reverse-engineering versions of the virus to make it look like it evolved naturally from bats.

The paper’s authors, British Professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen, wrote that they have had ‘prima facie evidence of retro-engineering in China‘ for a year – but were ignored by academics and major journals.   

Dalgleish is a professor of oncology at St George’s University, London, and is best known for his breakthrough creating the first working ‘HIV vaccine’, to treat diagnosed patients and allow them to go off medication for months.

Sørensen, a virologist, is chair of pharmaceutical company, Immunor, which developed a coronavirus vaccine candidate called Biovacc-19. Dalgleish also has share options in the firm. 

The shocking allegations in the study include accusations of ‘deliberate destruction, concealment or contamination of data’ at Chinese labs, and it notes the silencing and disappearance of scientists in the communist country who spoke out. 

The journal article, exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com and slated for publication in the coming days, is set to make waves among the scientific community, as the majority of experts have until recently staunchly denied the origins of COVID-19 were anything other than a natural infection leaping from animals to humans. …

While analyzing COVID-19 samples last year in an attempt to create a vaccine, Dalgleish and Sørensen discovered ‘unique fingerprints’ in the virus that they say could only have arisen from manipulation in a laboratory. …

Dalgleish and Sørensen claim that scientists working on Gain of Function projects took a natural coronavirus ‘backbone’ found in Chinese cave bats and spliced onto it a new ‘spike’, turning it into the deadly and highly transmissible SARS-Cov-2. …”

Lets assume for the sake of argument that this is true.

What would be the implications for the political establishment, the public health establishment and the corporate media? What would be the implications for our foreign policy?

Note: I’m not taking a firm position on this. The debate is heating up though. It is important to keep in mind that there are interests which are deeply invested in the lab leak theory being true like Trump and equally interests like Wall Street which are deeply invested in it not being true.

  1. The “virus” was a bad flu, if that. COVID was nothing more than a display of how government “experts” can create and destroy “pandemics” by control of information and a stupid population unable to critically think. Now it’s being used for anti-China. Let me tell you, I’m pro-China and anti Globo-Homo.

  2. To not realize that the virus was a purposeful attempt (yet another) to knock President Trump out of office) you are either a pea-brain or an incredibly wishful thinker.

  3. What would be the implications for our foreign policy?

    A strong prima facie case for the world’s nuclear powers to band together and launch a first strike on China.

    Nuke the gook.

  4. Fauci is on record stating that Dump would face a pandemic crisis: not “might” – WOULD.

    So who’s to blame for this colossal, mass-murderous goatfuck? The slipshod chinks? The gain of function-funding guinea? Both, probably. But then you’ve got those trying to use the issue to justify aggression against the main opposition to total world control by the (((US))).

  5. That’s the first semi-plausible theory I heard. I don’t believe in the US bio-weapon attack on China which Unz is so deeply invested and entrenched in. Not buying it. Israel wouldn’t allow Pompeo or Bolton or whichever “Deepstate Neocon” to do it. But I don’t really believe that China deliberately attacked “the West” with a bio-weapon either. Would immediately lead to WW 3, totally insane. And the lab-leak stuff is also too simplistic.

    >Chinese experiment on something found in nature
    >Make it more contagious, add “perks”
    >Most likely in an experimental accident it spreads where it shouldn’t
    >most importantly: China in “OH SHIT!” mode and trying to engineer different strains to make it look like it appeared in nature to save face
    >disappear, censor and threaten, or buy off the few who know

    That sounds like something China could do. But ultimately no one of us is a virologist, so we can’t have a qualified opinion on its origin. I like this theory, because I don’t have to believe the Chicom, US, EU government or some NGO for it and it sounds like the way the Chinese often operate: high-tech and third-worldism right next to each other, deception to save face. Just like stubborn Americans think wearing masks and lockdowns are somehow Nazicommunism.
