So what’s all the noise lately about the Wuhan virus not being/being a lab leak of some sort? I mean, seriously, what is it about Wuhan virus and the additional information that there is a research lab in the same city, makes anyone even doubt the possibility that there was, at minimum, an accidental leak that eventually caused a worldwide panic and not only killed 3.5 million people but crippled every major economy on the planet?
I never doubted the possibiity even when our own scientists were telling us otherwise. I mean, think about it like connecting the dots: Virus begins in the same location as a level 4 virus research lab, virus initially spreads in Wuhan. City virtually locked down by government to contain virus but still allowed international travel (?).Virus appears in Europe first, then North America, notably, New York City. Virus suddenly, because of China’s good governance, contained and extinguished in Wuhan (a population of 10 million) while the remainder of the world continue to suffer.
And yet top scientists within the US government and without claimed the opposite were true: It was transmitted by animal to human. Of course we’re now hearing from these same people, well, maybe we were wrong. Why is that suddenly so? Because Trump is not president. No, I’m not kidding. Read this. A political consideration, with a sprinkle of hubris, while the world burned. Is it now apparent why so many people who’ve trusted in science their entire lives now look askance at the same? Of course it is in the same way that a possible treatment, hydroxychloroquine was dismissed for the same reason even though there were eminent epidemiologists and virologists from around the world that claimed that it was a valid treatment. Now, due to recent studies, we know that it is and could’ve said many lives if it had been allowed to be prescribed to patients.
Simply because some in the scientific community didn’t care for the person behind the lectern, possibly many more people died from COVID than should have and the investigation into the possibility of an accidental leak from a lab, even purposeful leak, has been delayed and with Biden now as president, we’ll actually never know.
