The World Health Organisation recently put together a new team of researchers to ‘investigate’ the origins of COVID-19, pertaining specifically to the lab leak theory, and declared that this time conflicts of interest would be avoided. However, one of the leading members is a scientist who signed EcoHealth Alliance head Peter Daszak’s infamous Lancet letter which attempted to shut down the theory before it had even been looked into.
The Washington Free Beacon notes that Germany’s Institute of Virology head, Christian Drosten is on the latest WHO team, and that he “signed a controversial letter dismissing the idea that the virus emerged from a Chinese lab as a ‘conspiracy theory.'”
As we have previously noted, the Communist Chinese government, along with Daszak steered the course of the pathetic WHO “investigation”, which had already dismissed the lab leak notion after only a three hour visit to the facility in February.
In addition, China has refused to cooperate with the renewed WHO probe, declaring that any attempt to look into the lab leak theory goes “against science” and claiming, contrary to U.S. intelligence and the WHO’s own conclusions, that workers in the lab were hospitalised with COVID in the autumn of 2020.
In August, the head of the WHO’s origin investigation admitted that China basically ordered his team on what to write in their report and allowed them to mention the lab leak theory, but only on the condition that they didn’t recommend following it up.
Revealing what is clear evidence of a cover up, the Washington Post reported that Danish WHO chief Ben Embarek made the admission after also commenting that he believes patient zero was a worker at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where experiments on coronaviruses were being carried out.
Embarek noted that “human error” could have ultimately led to the virus jumping to humans, but that “the Chinese political system does not allow authorities to acknowledge that.”
Embarek commented that “Somebody could also wish to hide something.”
Also, the WHO team lead considers researcher getting infected in the field in the "likely" category —as a mix of "lab-leak" and direct infection— and also says there could have been human error but "the Chinese political system does not allow authorities to acknowledge that." pic.twitter.com/sSHFmA2VVU— zeynep tufekci (@zeynep) August 12, 2021
