In September 2019, three months before the outbreak that will plunge the world into the largest pandemic of the century, executives at the Wuhan Institute of Virology decided to make forbidden 15 databases putting them offline. This datasets contain essential informations on thousands of viruses and hundreds of newly discovered ones. One in particular, http://batvirus.whiov.ac.cn/, should contain about 22,000 samples of viral genomic sequences, of which 15,000 come from bats. If it were not already strange enough, on December 30, 2019, authorities of the WIV modify the database. The same day of the official communication of the identification of SARS-CoV-2 by China to the world.
The institute show the will of leave anonymous the content of the change, as well as the remaining database. Director Shi Zheng-Li declared that they set them offline following 3000 hacker attacks. Totally inexplicable given that in September 2019 no one in the world had malicious intent on those databases. Peter Daszak, a member of the WHO-branded international inquiry, ensured that the content of the databases was free of suspicious elements. A certainty so great that it is not possible for the rest of the world to visualize that data.
An indipendent researcher discovered the cover-up
Thanks to the cross-work of Gilles Demaneuf (a data analyst of the independent research team Drastic), Billy Bostickson (an anonymous Drastic researcher) and an anonymous OSINT contributor, we have a 25-page report on the 15 forbidden databases that allows us to understand how concrete the attempt to cover up something was, and that the lack of clarity on this informations from states and delegated bodies is severely serious. From this report we can draw up a list of questions that we hope someone will deign to answer soon:
- Why the pathogen database associated with the project (2013FY113500) is no longer accessible?
- Are there any SARS-like CoV genome-wide sequences available in the database?
- When scientists discovered SARS-CoV-2?
- What types of practices scientists have carried out on related viruses?
- Who were the material executors of these experiments?
All this makes clear that we need, inevitably, an indipendent international investigation.
