From what we have been able to observe since the beginning of the pandemic, China, and more particularly the Wuhan Institute of Virology, have carried out a complex attempt at the distortion and falsification of reality. Now that the zoonosis ship is finally brutally sinking, let’s go back in time to observe the chronology of the tremendous amount of suspicious elements that indicate the implementation of a very harmful scientific cover-up, probably the biggest of the century:
2012: This is probably where it all started. Six miners fall ill with a disease very similar to COVID-19 after scraping guano in the Mojiang mine, which is an abonded copper mine in Yunnan province. The alarm raised. A team from Wuhan Institute of Virology start to collect samples from the mine and finds hundreds of coronaviruses, including 10 betacoronaviruses (9 SARS-related), but very little would be published on them. The death of the miners is attributed to a fungal infection. Only months after the start of the pandemic, the Drastic team would consecutively discover various theses from the WIV that explain what happened to the miners at Mojiang: it was probably a SARS-related infection.
September/12/19: The WIV takes its databases, containing 22,000 viral sequences, offline for no plausible reason. On December/30 China will announce the discovery of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) to the world. On the same day, Shi Zheng-Li, director of the Center of emerging diseases at the institute, will make a stealthy modification to their bat database. Later, a member of the Drastic team, internetperson, will discover this deceptive editing and another team member, Gilles Demaneuf, will do a careful analysis.
November 2019: US intelligence sources find that 3 virologists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were admitted to a local hospital in November 2019 for a serious illness. No communication of this event has ever reached us from China.
December 2019: Ophthalmologist Li Wenliang realizes that some patients are victims of a disease similar to SARS, raises the alarm on the Chinese social network WeChat and is arrested by the local police. He will later die of COVID-19, at the age of 33.
December/30/2019: The pandemic breaks out and the Wuhan seafood market is used as a scapegoat without any corroborating evidence, later it will be exonerated by China itself and defined as “just the umpteenth victim of the pandemic”.
February/3/2020: Edward Holmes and several Chinese colleagues publish a study attesting that two proximal viruses of SARS-CoV-2 have been collected and sequenced by the Chinese military medical department, Shi Zheng-Li will deny these links despite considerable evidence.
February/3/2020: On the same day of the Holmes article, Shi Zheng-Li publishes a study presenting a virus from the WIV archives, called RaTG13, that is even closer to SARS-CoV-2 (96.2% similarity). However, she avoids saying that they have already known about this virus for 8 years but called it a different name in the past: “CoV4991″. This virus was found in Mojiang mine where 3 of the 6 miners died from symptoms identical to COVID-19. The inexplicable name change was discovered by Drastic researchers, who will also later discover, via a series of analyses conducted on RaTG13, that the name change was very likely a deliberate attempt to distance the virus from SARS-CoV-2 on the SARS phylogenetic tree.
February/19/2020: Peter Daszak, a WIV collaborator, organizes a letter from 27 scientists to be published in the promiment medical journal, The Lancet, condemning both the laboratory hypothesis and whoever promotes it, on the ground that it is “a dangerous conspiracy theory”, corroborating the thesis of a zoonosis – once again, however, without offering any evidence.
March/17/2020: Kristian Andersen and Edward Holmes, along with other colleagues, publish a study in which they deny laboratory leak theory without providing any rationally valid evidence to support their claims, thus promoting the zoonotic theory. The document becomes the bible of debunkers and fact-checkers from all over the world (who are unable to verify its content) to use in discrediting the laboratory hypothesis. Afterward in a reversal of fortune, several studies (like this) debunked and fact-checked them.
March-April/2020: 4 reviewed studies [1 , 2 , 3 , 4] comes out that provided scientific credibility to the zoonotic hypothesis. The narrative was that SARS-CoV-2 originated from bats and then passed to humans via a type of anteater called a pangolin, one of the most trafficked wild animals in the world. US Right to Know (USRTK) discovered, however, that two of the four articles that contained serious errors. The other two studies also seemed to contain errors. Nature journal added in November an Editor’s Note: Readers are alerted that concerns have been raised about the identity of the pangolin samples reported in this paper and their relationship to previously published pangolin samples. Appropriate editorial action will be taken once this matter is resolved. But still today no revision of the pangolin papers has been done.
November/17/2020: Shi Zheng-Li publishes an addendum to the February 3 study where she reveals that in addition to RaTG13 there were 8 other SARS-related viruses found in the mine that had never been referenced before, and the genome sequences have not been not published.
February/10/2021: the WHO-China investigation led by Peter Ben Embarek and other collaborators (see Peter Daszak) concludes that the possibility of a laboratory leak is extremely unlikely, a scenario relegable only to science fiction films. The investigation team states, all this without providing, obviously, any concrete evidence.
May/13/2021: the Drastic team discovers 3 other theses from the WIV attesting contradictory and extremely explanatory elements on the type of dangerous research conducted on SARS-related viruses that took place in China.
May/14/2021 -the turning point-: After the herculean and tireless efforts of the Drastic team and other independent researchers (see Alina Chan), who kept fighting for the truth despite abrasive dismissal by public opinion, some important journalists courageously decided to publish the real story. Particularly influential was the science journalist Nicholas Wade, who managed -with his tremendous communication skills- to reach a large audience. His article published indipendently on Medium (later published on the Bulletin of atomic scientists), was a catalyst that prompted the world community to seek answers about what really happened.
The work by the Drastic team, independent researchers, and Wade, pushes the well known journal, Science, to publish a letter signed by eminent scientists in the field, such as Ralph Baric and Marc Lipsitch, in support of an investigation of the Wuhan laboratories. Due to these enormous international pressures, many staunch proponents of the zoonotic origin hypothesis start to change their minds. At this moment, observers notice that various newspapers have begun to change the headlines of their old articles. Additionaly, many scientists who were previously supporters of the zoonotic hypothesis claim that they have always believed that the laboratory leak possibility should not to be ruled out, a stunning reversal of what they have been saying in the past 15 months. Among these is Dr Fauci, denied the possibility of a laboratory leak until after the pubblication of the letter in Science. Dr Fauci says he believes a laboratory leak is possible, but strongly specifies that he and the NIH have never funded Wuhan’s gain of function (GOF) studies, this is an obvious lie, and there is a great deal of evidence to prove it.
May/21/2021: WIV publishes the sequences of the other 8 Mojiang mine viruses, which are very distant from SARS-CoV-2, and all extremely similar. They are so similar, in fact, that they seem to come from the same virus. This is likely yet another deceptive manipulation to silence the voices calling for investigations into the laboratory leak hypothesis.
June/1/2021: FOIA makes public thousands of Anthony Fauci email exchanges, among these, some really interesting ones emerge. Above all we consider the exchange with Kristian G. Andersen who communicates that he and his colleagues have strong doubts about the naturalness of the new virus, highlighting how 0.1% has engineered characteristics. Fauci asks him to speak on the phone. After only 3 days Mr. Andersen will communicate that the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 is artificial is just a crackpot theory. What happened in those days? What is the content of that call? Whatever they are, in these days Mr. Andersen has decided to delete thousands of his old tweets on the subject of the origins of SARS-CoV-2, at least 5,000 cancellations have been evaluated. A not very smart move given the possibility of tracing them back through web archives. The cover-up continues.
In light of all this enormous and clearly incriminating evidence, we citizens who have fully experienced the economic and health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic ask that all national and supranational bodies set up an independent international investigation to shed light on what happened in Wuhan’s research centers in recent years.
