The Chinese Communist Party selected a training course on laboratory safety created by the Wuhan Institute of Virology – the facility believed to be the source of the COVID-19 pandemic – to be used by other Chinese research facilities engaged in biological research. The training program was adopted by the country’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security’s “Advanced Training Project Plan,” according to a March 30th post on the Wuhan lab’s website. The certification comes amidst America’s top health and intelligence publicly supporting the theory that COVID-19 escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, whose safety precautions raised concerns among
Email exchanges between virologists in February of 2020 reveal lab-based transmission of SARS-2 – the virus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic – in a Beijing-based facility under the control of the Chinese Communist Party. Obtained by the U.S. Right To Know Foundation under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the email exchange is the latest piece of evidence to affirm the lab origins of COVID-19. A February 14th, 2020 email exchange reveals Ohio State virologist Shan-Lu Liu admits the former director of a lab he previously worked at – The National Institute for Viral Disease Control and Prevention (NIVDC) –
The National Institutes of Health hosted Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers at a 2011 conference focusing on scientific research that could pose a “significant threat” to human health – including manipulation of bat coronaviruses. At the event, the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s Deputy Director repeatedly asserted that his controversial lab had “no regulation” on this form of risky research, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal. The 2011 event – Continuing the Global Dialogue with the Scientific and Science Policy Community with a Focus on Asia and the Western Pacific – was sponsored by the U.S. government’s National Institutes of Health
The Senate unanimously passed a bill requiring the federal government to declassify “any and all” intelligence on the relationship between the origins of COVID-19 and the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Authored by Republican Senators Mike Braun and Josh Hawley, the bill would give the Office of the Director of National Intelligence 90 days to declassify “any and all information relating to potential links between the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the origin of the coronavirus disease.” Speaking from the Senate floor, Senator Hawley emphasized that Americans “deserve to know how this terrible pandemic that has ravaged the globe and our
The Editor-in-Chief of the Chinese Communist Party-run media outlet Global Times asserted it's "reasonable to maintain suspicions" about the role of the Wuhan Institute of Virology in spawning COVID-19.
President Joe Biden terminated a Trump-era probe into the Wuhan Institute of Virology for its potential role in spawning in COVID-19.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology scrubbed the U.S. National Institutes of Health as one of its research partners from its website in early 2021. The revelation comes despite Dr. Anthony Fauci insisting no relationship existed between the institutions. Archived versions of the Wuhan lab’s site also reveal a research update – “Will SARS Come Back?” – appearing to describe gain-of-function research being conducted at the institute by entities funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). On March 21st, 2021, the lab’s website listed six U.S.-based research partners: University of Alabama, University of North Texas,
Nearly 20 scientists from America’s top research institutions penned a letter calling for a genuine investigation into the origins of COVID-19, insuring the “lab leak” theory is “viable.” Published in Science magazine, the report also slams the recent World Health Organization investigation for basing itself on faulty evidence and not sufficiently debunking the theory that the virus could have escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology: “The information, data, and samples for the study’s first phase were collected and summarized by the Chinese half of the team; the rest of the team built on this analysis. Although there were no findings in
