The Wuhan Institute of Virology assembled a monkeypox virus genome, allowing the virus to be identified through PCR tests, using a method researchers flagged for potentially creating a “contagious pathogen,” The National Pulse can reveal. Support our important research by clicking here. The study was first published in February 2022, just months before the latest international outbreak of monkeypox cases which appear to have now reached the United States. The paper, which was authored by nine Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers and published in the lab’s quarterly scientific journal Virologica Sinica, also follows the wide-scale use of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests to identify
A scientific journal published by top Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers shared studies appearing to engage in gain-of-function type research, a controversial method of studying pathogens that can increase their lethality. The Wuhan Institute of Virology is believed to have engaged in the risky form of research regarding bat coronaviruses, as now-deleted webpages reveal the lab manipulating bat coronaviruses to “replicate efficiently in primary human airway cells and achieve in vitro titers equivalent to epidemic strains of SARS-CoV.” Now, the latest edition of the lab’s journal, Virologica Sinica, appears to contain a similar style of research with the H7N9 virus in
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
A signatory of the controversial Lancet journal letter – which prematurely dismissed the theory that COVID-19 traced its origins to the Wuhan Institute of Virology – was privately telling colleagues that it was impossible to “definitively state that the virus could not possibly have come from that lab,” internal emails have revealed. The news confirms that while the general public were being told to believe something under penalty of censorship, those demanding such beliefs were, in fact, not convinced of their own claims. The February 2020 Lancet statement – which concluded that COVID-19 occurred naturally, in animals – was leveraged by politicians, scientists,
EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak was reportedly tapped to serve as a World Health Organization COVID-19 investigator at the demand of the Chinese Communist Party, according to a former staffer from group. Daszak’s nomination to serve as an investigator for the World Health Organization’s (WHO) mission to uncover the origins of COVID-19 would likely have been supported by Beijing, as he retains deep connections (and conflicts of interest) with the Chinese Communist Party’s scientific community. Daszak, who has led conferences sponsored by Chinese Communist Party-run scientific organizations, has co-authored studies funded by the Chinese government and participated in conferences conducted by
Dr. Shi Zhengli – the notorious Wuhan Institute of Virology’s coronavirus researcher – was elected to a leadership role for the American Academy of Microbiology, which receives millions of dollars from U.S. taxpayers. The Academy has also advised the federal government to “remove hurdles for international collaboration” in high-level biosafety labs, The National Pulse can reveal. Also known as Wuhan’s “Batwoman,” Dr. Shi runs the controversial Chinese laboratory’s Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases and has received grants from Anthony Fauci’s National Institue of Health (NIH) agency to manipulate bat coronaviruses to become deadlier to humans. To many, this is where COVID-19
The Wuhan Institute of Virology, which manipulated bat coronaviruses resembling COVID-19 to become deadlier to humans, appears to have carried out similar research on influenza, The National Pulse can reveal. An article posted to the Chinese-language website of the military-linked lab, which many public health and intelligence officials believed to be the source of COVID-19, details how researchers sought various avian influenza viruses (AIV) that had “zoonotic potential with human infections.” The post, titled “Scientist in WIV achieves a progress in study on reassortment of influenza viruses,” details how Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers hunted these viruses in the wild.
A new study authored by several scientists from EcoHealth Alliance – the controversial organization collaborating on bat coronavirus research with the Wuhan Institute of Virology – including Peter Daszak is funded by Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The publication of the study – “A Strategy to Assess Spillover Risk of Bat SARS-Related Coronaviruses in Southeast Asia” – follows intense scrutiny over Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) agency sending taxpayer dollars to fund the Daszak-led group’s “longtime collaboration” with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Both Daszak and Fauci have lied about the type of research occurring
