Why is the origin of COVID being suppressed in the media? There is clearly a joint effort by China and the US National Institute of Health (NIH) to stop a full exposé of how COVID was made in a laboratory. Why are they shutting down this issue? The immediate answer is that Peter Daszak, President of EcoHealth Alliance, commissioned the Wuhan Institute of Virology to work on the genetic engineering of coronaviruses and the US National Institute of Health under Dr Anthony Faucci funded EcoHealth Alliance.

Why is the origin of COVID being suppressed in the media? There is clearly a joint effort by China and the US National Institute of Health (NIH) to stop a full exposé of how COVID was made in a laboratory. Why are they shutting down this issue? The immediate answer is that Peter Daszak, President of EcoHealth Alliance, commissioned the Wuhan Institute of Virology to work on the genetic engineering of coronaviruses and the US National Institute of Health under Dr Anthony Faucci funded EcoHealth Alliance.
The main business of the Wuhan Institute of Virology is the
collection and genetic engineering of coronaviruses (see Note 1). The
chance that an outbreak of COVID caught from animals happened in the same city as hosts the
most active research centre for coronaviruses in the world is less than 1
in a 100. Why did COVID start in Wuhan? Why not Beijing or Shanghai or even Taipei or Hanoi? The obvious conclusion is a lab escape occurred, especially given that no animal host has been found and the Huanan market exonerated (China Global Times 26th May 2020).
The virus was made in China using US money in a laboratory built by the French. EcoHealth Alliance acted as an agency to put the NIH in contact with the cheapest researchers in the world without regard to safety (see Note 2) and the naive and arrogant "West" supplied China with a biowarfare development centre. No wonder the organisations that did this want to steal away into the shadows and avoid all blame.
The appointment of Peter Daszak as a lead scientist in the "Impartial" WHO investigation of the origins of COVID shows just how far everyone is going to stop the truth coming out. (BTW the appointment of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the WHO President, was largely due to backing by China).
OK, we can accept that this happened but what we must not accept is the mass media and social media reaction to the disaster. Most of all we must ask how the system of scientific publications has become controlled by China, large corporations and the NIH.
Social media was particularly reprehensible with Twitter actually banning users who suggested that the virus was a lab escape. Social media was using "fact checkers" to assess whether posts were fake news and these factcheckers had been nobbled, probably by China and the NIH. It turns out that the fact checkers do not even read the scientific papers that they use to assess the "truth".
As an ex-scientific researcher I am utterly appalled at the refusal of publishers such as Springer and Elsevier to publish articles that show COVID was man made. There have been quite a few articles showing that COVID was made in a lab but almost none of these have been published in the journals. The latest of these papers: "The Evidence which Suggests that This Is No Naturally Evolved Virus A Reconstructed Historical Aetiology of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike", by Sorensen and Dalgleish was rejected by Nature. Sorensen and Dalgleish are senior and respected scientists so Nature said: "..this is not a criticism regarding the importance of the matter or the quality of your analyses, but rather an editorial assessment of priority for publication...". "Science" also rejected the article saying "We do not publish papers that are critiques of works in other journals, so we cannot consider something along these lines.", given that all breakthroughs in science contradict previous work this was a fatuous ground for rejection that was declaring that only the first paper in a field can be published. Both these rejections seem to have come from senior management and were basically saying that the journals were banning any data on COVID being man-made.
The worst case of rejection by the journals was of the work by Li-Meng Yan et al which demonstrates how the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID19 could be synthesised in the laboratory. Li Meng is a virologist who had actually spoken to the virologists in China who had been involved with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. I thought at the time that this was it, someone who had spoken to whistle blowers in China, we will now learn the truth. The incredibly brave Li-Meng had to flee Hong Kong to bring this report to the notice of the world. Surely the mainstream media could not just ignore this new information? I was wrong, Li-Meng was subjected to a barrage of abuse by the media.
It is blindingly obvious what is happening. France by supplying the only BSL-4 lab in mainland China, corporations and their agents such as EcoHealth Alliance and the NIH of the USA have treated China as a harmless and cheap source of scientific work without realising that China is the greatest threat to global security since the Third Reich in 1937. They had no understanding that Chinese virological labs are used by the Chinese army for bioweapons as well as for research so that lab escapes would be covered up and propagated. The truth must come out. The people such as Faucci who are full of the hubris of 70 years of Western dominance must be sacked.
The system of scientific publishing, where Springer and Elsevier dominate almost all of the prestigious publications, must be overhauled. A malicious power such as China can easily gain control through off-shore intermediaries. Even advertising, such as the 6 pages of expensive, glossy Chinese advertising that has been a feature of "Science", can give China massive leverage.
A major evaluation of Chinese penetration of the media and mass media is also needed. This should have due regard to the use of offshore companies to control corporations and the universal ability of China to hack Western communications for the purposes of blackmail and control. Sympathisers with Maoism, Postmarxism and Chinese National Socialism need to be removed from key positions, especially in the media.
Perhaps if the truth does come out it will shake the West out of its apathy towards China.
Springer abuses its power
Springer Nature, on the 17th of March 2020, within a few weeks of the WHO declaring a pandemic, published an article, "The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2, by Kristian Anderson et al", which says in the abstract that "Our analyses clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus". Anyone who bothers to read the article can see immediately that the analyses do not support this claim at all. All the fact checking sites on the Internet quote Kristian Andersen and his paper as the gold standard of scientific opinion on this issue. But the actual paper does not support its conclusion.
Springer Nature asks "how high" if China says "jump!". It has been caught out for allowing the Chinese government to censor content for political reasons in the past. Kristian Andersen works for the Scripps Institute which receives Chinese funding. What the Chinese have on Andersen is not known. Andersen has been appointed by the mainstream media as the official font of truth on COVID and leads the tirades of abuse against anyone who suggests COVID was man made.
Andersen was the leading abuser of Dr Li Meng when she brought information about the origins of COVID to the West.
It is also fascinating that Kristian Andersen had publicly dismissed the Sorensen and Dalgleish study before it was released and before he had read it: "Andersen last week told Sky news that Sørensen’s and Dalgleish’s work was “complete nonsense, unintelligible, and not even remotely scientific – leading the authors to make unfounded and unsupported conclusions about the origin of SARS-CoV-2”. However, Andersen has not had an opportunity to read the second, unpublished article." Minerva
Andersen seems to either be a hired gun or subject to pressure behind the scenes. Andersen is a strange case because he initially declared that COVID was
man-made. Yes, this most quoted opponent of the man-made account of
COVID initially said it was man-made. He also, initially, said that Faucci was part of a cover up. What do the NIH/China have on Andersen? Was it simply fear of being sacked and deprived of a career that has controlled him?
Andersen is by no means the most senior virologist in the world yet he is used as the font of all Establishment wisdom on the matter. There are more senior virologists than Andersen who are convinced that COVID is artificial, for instance Professor Luc Montagnier, the winner of the Nobel Prize for medicine for
discovering HIV, agrees that COVID19 was a lab escape. He said: "“With my colleague, bio-mathematician Jean-Claude Perez, we carefully
analyzed the description of the genome of this RNA virus,”.."in order to
insert an HIV sequence into this genome, molecular tools are needed,
and that can only be done in a laboratory." Yet the mass media and "fact checkers" always turn to Andersen - why?

Zhang is a WIV worker and this paper shows how WIV was competent to do reverse genetics research (man made viruses that show no signs of recombination).
Note 2: Biosafety at Wuhan was appalling and in 2018 this caused a visiting team of specialists to voice serious concern a year before the COVID outbreak
"the lab’s work on bat coronaviruses and their potential human transmission represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic."
"During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory" (Washington Post).
