Scientist: 'Smoking gun' evidence suggests Chinese created COVID-19

Long have there been questions about how COVID-19 came to be, and how it came to be released into the world, where it killed millions of people and destroyed economies wholesale.

America still has yet to recover from its impact, as uncounted others have been injured by the shots that were created and mandated, styled as "vaccines" against the threat to life.

The unanswered question is exactly where it came from, although most experts now concede it was from a Chinese lab in Wuhan that had gotten American research money and was doing experiments on bat viruses to make them more dangerous.

But China's decisions to withhold from the world information about COVID and its beginnings continue to loom.

Now one scientist says he has evidence that makes a strong case for what he believes happened: China created it.

report in the New York Post explains Richard H. Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University, said in a Wall Street Journal report that the virus actually may have been manmade in that Chinese lab.

"He cited evidence found in a 2018 document from the lab that talked of making such a virus," the report explained.

"[The document] elevates the evidence provided by the genome sequence from the level of noteworthy to the level of a smoking gun," Ebright explained.

The Post noted the papers cited by Ebright were drafts and notes regarding a grant proposal called Project DEFUSE, "which sought to test engineering bat coronaviruses in a way that would make them more easily transmissible to humans."

In the article by former New York Times editor Nicholas Wade, he suggested that the project was advanced also with funding from the Chinese Communist government after America's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency refused to give it money.

"Viruses made according to the DEFUSE protocol could have been available by the time COVID-19 broke out, sometime between August and November 2019," Wade confirmed. "This would account for the otherwise unexplained timing of the pandemic along with its place of origin."

Further, the Post reported Wade explained the specific genetics of the virus that let it hit humans right away was another indication of "the virus's laboratory birth."

Wade said, 'Whereas most viruses require repeated tries to switch from an animal host to people, SARS-CoV-2 infected humans out of the box as if it had been preadapted while growing in the humanized mice called for in the DEFUSE protocol."

While a multitude of questions remain, Ebright reports that there's also credibility to the idea that the contributions of the American EcoHealth Alliance helped with projects addressed in Wuhan.

The Post report explained that documents that were published by US Right to Know provided evidence the virus was manufactured, as they contained notes regarding Project DEFUSE and details about synthesizing bat coronaviruses to make them more transmissible.

The report said, "The researchers proposed introducing 'appropriate human-specific cleavage sites' to the spike proteins of SARS-related viruses in the lab, the same method several biologists have said could have been used to synthesize the coronavirus that led to the pandemic."

While COVID's origins still pose questions, Dr. Filippa Lentzos, an associate professor of science and international security at King’s College London, "said the world needed to acknowledge that the possibility exists that the virus was synthesized, " the report said.

"We have to acknowledge the fact that the pandemic could have started from some research-related incident," Lentzos said.
