‘Rare’ genome sequencing almost certainly proves COVID-19 was intentionally created in a Chinese lab before leaking to the world, US experts say in a bombshell essay

  • COVID-19 has the genome sequencing combination of ‘CGG-CGG’
  • Two US experts say no naturally occurring coronavirus has ever had that combination
  • The ‘CGG-CGG’ combination is extremely rare, except when used by scientists doing ‘function gain’ in labs
  • The experts conclude that it is more likely than not that the virus was therefore created in a laboratory laboratorium
  • In recent weeks, many of the world’s top scientists have pushed to determine whether the virus was leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology

Two US experts have written a damning essay stating that COVID-19 genome sequencing strongly suggests the virus was manufactured in a Chinese lab.

dr. Stephen Quay and Richard Muller, a physics professor at the University of California Berkeley, claimed in The Wall Street Journal on Sunday, amid growing speculation that the coronavirus was leaking from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).

“The most compelling reason to favor the lab leak hypothesis is firmly rooted in science,” the experts wrote, stating that “COVID-19 has a genetic footprint never seen in a natural coronavirus.”

Quay and Muller claim that the Wuhan lab was known for conducting “gain-of-function” research where scientists would “deliberately charge viruses to increase lethality.”

COVID-19 has the genome sequence ‘CGG-CGG’ – one of 36 sequence patterns. That combination is often used by scientists in gain-of-function research, but is otherwise considered extremely ‘rare’.

The experts claim that no naturally occurring coronavirus – such as SARS or MERS – has ever had a CGG-CGG combination.

‘The combination CGG-CGG has never been found naturally. That means the usual method of viruses picking up new abilities, called recombination, cannot work here,” they wrote.

“A virus simply cannot pick up a sequence from another virus if that sequence is not present in another virus.”

Quay and Muller go on to argue that those who believe COVID-19 began with transmission from animals to humans “need to explain why it happened to choose the least favored combination: CGG-CGG.” Why did it replicate the choice the lab’s gain-of-function researchers would have made?’

The couple concludes: ‘Yes, it could have happened randomly, through mutations. But do you believe that? This fact — that the coronavirus, with all its arbitrary possibilities, used the rare and unnatural combination used by human researchers — implies at the very least that the leading theory for the origin of the coronavirus must be a laboratory escape.”

In recent weeks, many of the world’s top scientists have pushed to determine whether the virus has leaked from the WIV.

The lab leak theory was initially rejected by many in the media and academic communities.

US President Joe Biden last week ordered intelligence agencies to launch an investigation into whether COVID is man-made after all.

Circumstantial evidence has long raised questions about the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where researchers were known to conduct experiments on bat coronavirus strains similar to the one responsible for COVID-19.

China early and often insisted that the virus not leaked from the lab, claiming that the crossing to humans must have taken place at a “wet market” in Wuhan where live animals were sold.

Perhaps driven by hostility to Donald Trump, who embraced the lab leak theory early on, mainstream US media and academics taunted the possibility, calling it a runaway conspiracy theory.

But new evidence, including reports of three Wuhan lab workers who became seriously ill with COVID-like symptoms in November 2019, has prompted a sober reassessment among doubters.

Frustration with China mounted this week after Beijing said it would not participate in further research by the World Health Organization.

Biden chided China in announcing the new intelligence investigation and called on allies to “pressurize China to participate in a full, transparent, evidence-based international investigation and to provide access to all relevant data and evidence.” ‘.

Chinese military scientist ‘applied a patent for a COVID-19 vaccine BEFORE the virus was declared a global pandemic and worked closely with ‘bat woman’ at the Wuhan Institute’

A Chinese military scientist with ties to the United States has reportedly filed a patent for a COVID-19 vaccine well before the disease was declared a global pandemic.

Yusen Zhou, who worked for the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), filed the papers on behalf of the Chinese political party on February 24, 2020. the Australiaa newspaper.

That date was just five weeks after China first confirmed human transmission of the coronavirus.

Zhou is also said to have “worked closely” with scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), including Shi Zhengli — the lab’s deputy director known for her research on coronavirus in bats.

Their relationship is likely to bolster speculation that the virus leaked from the lab and that China was aware it was spreading between people long before they alerted the international community.

Zhou mysteriously died less than three months after filing the patent. The New York Post claims his death was mentioned in only one report in the Chinese media, despite being one of the country’s foremost scientists.

Zhou had previously worked on research related to US institutions, including the University of Minnesota and the New York Blood Center, the paper reported.
