The COVID-19 lab-origin hypothesis has been discussed by molecular biologists and other scientists for more than a year (“COVID-19 origin dissent ‘suppressed’ by intelligence community, House GOP report finds,” Web, May 24). The binding properties and structure of the spike protein has been regarded as unlikely to have come from natural evolution. It has a strategically placed cleavage cite which enhances its infectivity. In fact, the the conspiracy theory has always been the natural-evolution ploy, not the lab-synthesis theory. To date no original virus host or intermediate host has been found to support natural evolution.
You would think that the CIA would at least make a cursory attempt at following the discussion in the scientific community. Of course they would be hindered because the technology oligarchs were censoring anything that did not come out of the Chinese Communist Party or CCP-controlled WHO.
As far as the EcoHealth Alliance or any other funding entity for virology is concerned, why would they ever own up to lab origin? Their funding, reputations and very existence would be jeopardized by the discovered lab origin of any virus that came from gain-of-function research.
The response of 98% of world governments to COVID-19 has been horrendous. The virus has caused more death and devastation than both world wars combined. Scientists attempting to object have regularly been censored and pilloried. If there were any justice, Congress would investigate the response and the origin, but it would reflect very badly on them because they all had a part in it.
There is no doubt this virus originated in a lab — and the response to it has rarely, if ever, had anything to do with scientific evidence. Every time the evidence was debated, the tech oligarchs snuffed it. This is what happens when “free speech” gets thrown in the garbage can.
