Lab engineered bioweapon, let loose on the world intentionally by Fauci and friends

 The same folks that lied about the origins of this planned outbreak are making trillions from the various vaccines and killing a lot of people.

There is an aerosol version. it can spray covid upon any surface so as to continue to infect victims.I believe that the Doctors are spraying it in their offices.I had an appointment last week and called first thing,i know I was the first to make an appointment because the prior call I made just seconds before I got an actual person instead of their answer machine.They made me an appointment for 6;15 pm-which I thought was odd-and when I got home,I wasn't feeling so well.

Lab engineered bioweapon, let loose on the world intentionally by Fauci and friends

These dates and events from The Epoch times

2002-2003-In an outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), 774 people die worldwide. It’s quickly established that the virus spread from bats to civets and then to people.

2003-After the initial SARS outbreak is quelled, a secondary outbreak in Singapore is linked to a lab accident. It’s also reported that the SARS virus had escaped from high-level containment facilities in Beijing several times.

2004-Shi Zheng-Li (also known as Shi Zhengli), a director at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, discovers a natural reservoir of coronaviruses in bats living in caves in southern China.

2004-the European Union signs a decree leading to the creation of a biosafety level 4 laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

2005-Shi’s team uses human SARS antibody tests on bats to determine that “samples from three horseshoe bat species contain antibodies to the SARS virus.”

2005-2010-Shi’s team focuses their research and sampling of coronaviruses from horseshoe bats at Shitou Cave, on the outskirts of Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province in western China.

2007-Shi and her team write a paper published in the Journal of Virology that shows how horseshoe bat viruses can be manipulated to infect and attack human cells using an HIV-based pseudovirus.

2008-Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance receives its first grant from Fauci’s NIAID: “Risk of Viral Emergence From Bats.” Daszak proposes to “examine the pathogenesis of these new viruses, and a pool of available bat viruses which have not yet emerged in humans.”

2009-the U.S. Agency for International Development establishes the PREDICT program, dedicated to surveilling dangerous animal viruses that could transfer to humans, overseen by Dennis Carroll. The PREDICT program would later form a collaboration with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

A diplomatic cable signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recognizes that France is assisting China in setting up the Wuhan Institute of Virology biosafety level 4 lab. The cable warns about possible bioweapons research.

2010-Shi and others write a paper reporting additional experiments using live horseshoe bat viruses and an HIV-based pseudovirus to increase SARS-CoV infectiousness for humans.

2011-Construction begins on the biosafety level 4 laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID); his NIAID colleague Gary Nabel; and Francis Collins, director of the related National Institutes of Health (NIH), write “A Flu Virus Risk Worth Taking” for The Washington Post. The article notes that researchers have created a laboratory virus that “does not exist in nature” and that “important information and insights can come from generating a potentially dangerous virus in the laboratory.”

2011-2012-Shi, EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak, and others conduct a 12-month survey in a colony of horseshoe bats “at a single location [Shitou Cave] in Kunming, Yunnan Province, China.” They claim the first successful isolation of live coronavirus from bat fecal samples. This research is conflated with research Shi’s team conducted at the Mojiang mine in 2012/2013

2012-2013-Another bat virus causes a second epidemic, known as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). This time the intermediary host animal is camels. More than 840 people die worldwide.

2012-Tian Junhua, a virologist at the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention starts collecting bats from remote locations in China for further study at the Wuhan CDC. Tian would later admit to having captured around 10,000 bats without taking any safety precautions and acknowledge that he was frequently sprayed with bat urine and blood.

Six miners clear bat excrement from a mine in Mojiang County, Yunnan Province, China. They fall ill with COVID-19-like symptoms, and three die. Later, a virus called RaTG13 is isolated from the mine by Shi’s team and sent to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. RaTG13 to this day remains the closest known relative 

of SARS2.

Fauci reports at a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing that NIAID is funding experiments in which viruses are modified to allow for aerosol transmission. Fauci claims that “the risk-benefit ratio of such research clearly tips towards benefitting society.

OCT. 9-After the death of two of the miners from Mojiang, the Wuhan Institute of Virology tests the four survivors. All four have antibodies against a SARS-like coronavirus. A third miner would later die from his illness.

A study, financed by NIAID and published in the journal Science, genetically modifies avian influenza to make it airborne transmissible.

Fauci gives a talk called “The Way Forward in Influenza Research” concerning “the controversial issue of gain-of-function research.” He says, “If we want to continue this important work, we collectively need to do a better job of articulating the scientific rationale for such experiments.”

After testing the miners in May, Shi and her team of scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology collect bat virus samples from the Mojiang mine. These samples are sent back to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for further analysis and storage.

Fauci writes a paper addressing the potential for a lab accident in relation to gain-of-function experiments. Fauci claims “that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks.”

A master’s thesis completed at Kunming Medical University focuses on a virus that killed three men at the Mojiang mine in 2012 and concludes that the deaths resulted from a SARS-like coronavirus from bats.

The thesis states that Shi’s previous conclusion that the SARS-like coronavirus carried by bats is not contagious to humans is incorrect.

The miners’ deaths appear to have prompted Shi to focus her work on the Mojiang mine, where she would officially discover the closest known relative to COVID-19 on July 24, 2013.

The U.S. Department of Defense funnels $39 million to Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance over a period of 

eight years.

PLOS Pathogens publishes a paper written by Tian of the Wuhan CDC and virologist Edward Holmes on their studies of new types of bat viruses personally collected by Tian.

Holmes would later play a prominent role in promoting the natural origins theory.

The RaTG13 virus is discovered by Shi’s team in the Mojiang mine. The source and location of this closest relative to COVID-19 would later be concealed by Shi.

The Galveston National Laboratory in Texas begins to train Chinese researchers for work in biosafety level 4 labs, supplanting France’s role at the startup of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s new level 4 lab.

Shi, Daszak, and others publish a NIAID-funded study claiming the first successful isolation of a live coronavirus from horseshoe bat fecal samples. Shi’s team names this virus WIV1—apparently shorthand for Wuhan Institute of Virology 1.

A Wuhan Institute of Virology thesis, supervised by Shi, mentions the Mojiang miners incident, noting that “three miners died from pneumonia.” The paper acknowledges that Shi and her team “investigated the virus carried by bats in this cave” and concludes that it “is likely that the six miners were infected with the pathogen carried by bats.”

The thesis is also the first time that RaBtCoV/4991 virus, which would later emerge as COVID-19’s closest relative, is mentioned:

“Overlap PCR was performed on the amplified bat coronavirus N gene, of which 4991, 3740(β)-N was amplified by laboratory associates.”

Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance receives a $3,700,000 NIAID grant to study whether bat coronaviruses could be transmitted to humans.

The work was to be carried out at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

James Le Duc, director of the Galveston National Laboratory, acknowledges that he is training a Chinese researcher from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in the maintenance and operations of a level 4 facility. Le Duc also claimed to “have invested considerably in our partnership with the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Wuhan [Wuhan Institute of Virology’s parent body] and is anxious to ensure its long-term success.”

The Obama administration announces a moratorium on gain-of-function research. NIH Director Francis Collins states that “these studies, however, also entail biosafety and biosecurity risks, which need to be understood better.”

MARCH-OCTOBER-Physical construction of the Wuhan Institute of Virology biosafety level 4 laboratory is completed. The lab was built in collaboration with the French government.

French certification firm pulls out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s biosafety level 4 laboratory project, citing the refusal of the French to supply the Chinese side with “deadly viruses and antivirus suits” that could be used for bioweapons research. The Wuhan Institute of Virology would later ask NIAID for “disinfectants for decontamination of airtight suits.”

Gain-of-function experiments take place at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This work is detailed in various scientific articles written by Shi and her team from 2015 onward.

Fauci’s NIAID China representative, Chen Ping, emails Fauci’s office to announce her plans to tour the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s new level-4 lab.

That visit was not allowed. Ping would not tour the facility until October 2017.

Shi’s team claims that 3 percent of villagers near Shitou Cave carry antibodies “against SARS-like coronaviruses from bats.”

NOV. 12

NOV. 9-JUNE-A NIAID-funded article in Nature notes that “a SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence.” Shi and others observe that some of the viruses that they found “replicate efficiently in primary human airway cells.” The researchers said their work “suggests a potential risk of SARS-CoV re-emergence from viruses currently circulating in bat populations.” No reference to the Mojiang mine or the deceased miners is made.

Another Nature article specifically warns about the risk that bat coronavirus experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology may cause a pandemic. Rutgers University biologist Richard Ebright tells Nature magazine that ​​“the only impact of this work is the creation, in a lab, of a new, non-natural risk.”

Shi publishes an article in a Chinese journal that marks the first time she personally admits to having obtained multiple coronaviruses, including the new SARS-like strain, from an abandoned mine in Mojiang. She makes no mention of the miners, whose mysterious illness and deaths led her to the cave. In this same article, Shi admitted that she obtained a virus called RaBtCoV/4991 from the Mojiang mine. Shi later renamed this virus as RaTG13 in early February 2020—just as the COVID-19 pandemic had begun to emerge.

A Chinese doctoral thesis supervised by China’s CDC director, Gao Fu, and assisted by Edward Holmes—who would later become a main promoter of the natural origins narrative—acknowledges the deaths of three miners at the Mojiang mine in April 2012 and confirms that a team from the Wuhan Institute of Virology had subsequently collected bat samples from the mine.

According to a New York Post report, a former EcoHealth Alliance employee claims that Daszak was “approached by the CIA in late 2015.”

LATE 2016

JAN. 9-JAN. 20=Yuan Zhiming of the Wuhan Institute of Virology asks NIAID for “disinfectants for decontamination of airtight suits and surface decontamination indoor decontamination” for use at the Wuhan Institute of Virology biosafety level 4 lab. Although the lab had been open for 18 months by this point, Yuan claims that the lab “is under operation without pathogens.”

Pigs in four farms located 60 miles from the original SARS outbreak suffer “from acute vomiting and diarrhea,” and nearly 25,000 die. Researchers later determine that swine acute diarrhea syndrome (SADS) comes from a virus whose genomic sequence is 98 percent identical to that of a coronavirus found in horseshoe bats in a nearby cave.

Wuhan Institute of Virology’s biosafety level 4 lab is accredited by the China National Accreditation Service. The lab would officially open in November 2018.

The French government had refused to certify the lab in 2015 citing bioweapons concerns.

Obama issues a last minute policy guidance that lifts the moratorium he imposed in October 2014 on gain-of-function research.

Fauci’s NIAID representative in China, Chen, sends an internal email calling China’s CDC director Gao Fu a “dear friend.”

MAY 3-OCT. 1-Fauci delivers a keynote speech at Georgetown titled “Pandemic Preparedness in the Next Administration” stating that “there will be a surprise outbreak.” Fauci also notes that “people should pay attention to natural causes.”

An article published in the journal Nature warns about possible lab leaks from the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s P4 laboratory and also questions whether it will be possible to maintain the required openness of information in China.

A Wuhan Institute of Virology thesis supervised by Shi details how the institute performed experiments, replacing “the S gene without traces” on their WIV1 coronavirus.

WIV1, apparently shorthand for Wuhan Institute of Virology, was first publicly disclosed on Oct. 30, 2013, when Shi, Daszak, and others published a NIAID-funded study claiming the first successful isolation of a live coronavirus (WIV1) from horseshoe bat fecal samples.

A Chinese newspaper article details Tian’s work, including collecting 10,000 bats from remote locations in China for further study at the Wuhan CDC. Tian admits that he collected the bats without taking any safety precautions.

Daszak emails Fauci about bat coronavirus experiments being carried out at the Wuhan Institute of Virology: “We’re also doing assays to find out if it can infect human cells in the lab.”


FEB. 26-JAN. 19=Fauci’s NIAID representative in China, Chen, is finally allowed to visit the Wuhan lab. While there, Chen is forbidden from taking any photos inside the lab’s facilities.

Shi, Daszak, and others publish NIAID-funded research claiming that horseshoe bats they had collected from the Shitou cave in Yunnan Province were very likely from the same bat population that spawned the SARS coronavirus in 2003. Shi makes no mention of the Mojiang mine where three miners died and where she subsequently collected thousands of bat fecal samples.

The U.S. Embassy in Beijing sends two diplomatic cables warning of Wuhan Institute of Virology’s management and safety. “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,” one of the cables read.

U.S. Embassy officials visit the Wuhan Institute of Virology level 4 lab in the city of Wuhan several times. Two official warnings are sent back to Washington about “inadequate safety at the lab, which was conducting risky studies on coronaviruses from bats.” The warnings contend that the United States should support the Wuhan Institute of Virology “because its research on bat coronaviruses was important but also dangerous.”

NIAID’s China representative in China, Chen Ping, discovers that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is developing a new type of flu vaccine. The information on the new vaccine is deleted online later that month.

JULY 16-Shi, Daszak, and others write an article published in a Chinese journal noting that “results indicate that some SARSr-CoVs may have high potential to infect human cells, without the necessity for an intermediate host. However, to date, no evidence of direct transmission of SARSr-CoVs from bats to people has been reported.” Their paper does not acknowledge that the Wuhan Institute of Virology had already been conducting experiments to determine whether one of the viruses could “infect human cells in the lab.”

Final visit conducted by U.S. Embassy officials to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where researchers and staff gave U.S. officials an overview of the new biosafety level 4 lab. U.S. officials would later report a lack of trained staff at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

An EcoHealth Alliance funding application, “Defusing the Threat of Bat-borne Coronaviruses,” proposes to genetically engineer a “human-specific” furin cleavage site into bat coronaviruses.

For COVID-19, the furin cleavage site would later be shown to be key for the virus’s pathogenicity.

A NIAID-funded study by Shi, Daszak, and others acknowledges the existence of animal facilities at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Daszak would later deny that live bats were kept at the institute.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology publishes a statement connecting the institute to funding from the Wellcome Trust headed by Jeremy Farrar, who would later play a crucial role in Fauci’s creation of the natural origins narrative.

JULY-The Wuhan Institute of Virology biosafety level 4 lab officially opens under director Yuan Zhiming.

A NIAID-funded study by Shi and others notes that both SARS and MERS “likely originated in bats.” The report warns that future evolution of bat coronavirus strains “may allow them to cross the species barriers between bats, civets and humans, posing potential health threats.”

A Chinese couple are removed from Canada’s only biosafety level 4 lab after it becomes known that they made unauthorized trips to Wuhan to train scientists and technicians at the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s newly opened biosafety level 4 lab.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology’s database of viral sequences is taken offline in the middle of the night. Later that day, the institute publishes a procurement announcement for “security services” to handle the “registration and reception of foreign personnel.”

The Global Preparedness Monitoring Board, a WHO-related organization of 15 politicians and scientists, issues a warning about the possibility for a global pandemic, stating that “the world is not prepared for a fast-moving, virulent respiratory pathogen pandemic.”

The report is based on a Sept. 10, 2019, study prepared by Johns Hopkins for the GPM Board, which includes Fauci, Farrar, and Gao.

OCTOBER-An increase in traffic at hospitals throughout Wuhan occurs at this time. A Harvard Medical School study would later suggest that this may have been because the coronavirus outbreak happened earlier than reported.

OCT. 6–11-A report obtained by NBC in May 2020 suggests there may have been a “hazardous event” at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The U.S. Consul General in Wuhan, Russell Westergard, states that “By mid-October 2019, the dedicated team at the U.S. Consulate General in Wuhan knew that the city had been struck by what was thought to be an unusually vicious flu season.”

OCT. 7–24-No cellphone activity could be detected in the high-security portion of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to a May 2020 NBC report.

The U.S. Agency for International Development abruptly shuts down the PREDICT program, which focused on tracking and monitoring dangerous animal viruses that could transfer to humans. PREDICT had collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

In November, “U.S. intelligence officials were warning that a contagion was sweeping through China’s Wuhan region,” according to an April 8, 2020, report by ABC News. An intelligence report by the military’s National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) states that “it could be a cataclysmic event.”

It would later be reported that NCMI concluded that the virus most likely leaked out of a Wuhan lab. NCMI’s conclusion would be included without attribution in the 2021 intelligence community assessment on the virus’s origins.

The disease worsens this month, U.S. Consul General Westergard would later write.

Three lab workers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology are hospitalized with COVID-type symptoms, according to unconfirmed reports published on May 23, 2021. Huang Yanling, a researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, is rumored to be patient zero. Her profile is scrubbed from the institute’s website.The first case of COVID-19 is detected, according to a March 13, 2020 report by South China Morning Post.

A report in The Lancet would later claim that the first known case of COVID-19 occurred on this date, in a patient with no known ties to the Huanan Seafood Market.

A March 2021 WHO report would state that the first known case occurred on Dec. 8, 2019.

MID–DECEMBER-The Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention Bio-Safety Level 2 Lab moves to a new location, just 900 feet from the Huanan Seafood Market. The new location is also adjacent to the hospital where the first group of doctors were infected during the epidemic. The lab is reported to have “kept disease-ridden animals in its labs, including some 605 bats.”

The WHO would later claim that this date saw the emergence of the first known case of COVID-19. This claim would be contradicted by a Lancet study citing Dec. 1, 2019, as the date of the first known case.In an interview at the Nipah Virus International Conference, Daszak confirms that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is experimenting with coronaviruses, some of which “get into human cells 

in the lab.”A video shows Wuhan CDC workers, including Tian, collecting virus samples in bat caves in Hubei Province. The date of the original footage is unknown.Tian has not spoken publicly for more than a year.Wuhan city officials begin to close public schools to control the spread of the disease, Westergard would later note. Westergard’s team passes this information to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing while continuing to monitor the situation.

DEC. 31-DEC. 31-The full genome of COVID-19 is sequenced. The CCP does not share this data with the outside world.

Shi is reportedly informed of a new coronavirus outbreak. Shi claims that “such viruses were most likely to originate in South China” and that she “never expected this kind of thing to happen in Wuhan, in Central China.”

Patient samples arrive at the Wuhan Institute of Virology after the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention detects a novel coronavirus in two hospital patients with atypical pneumonia.

Fifty-nine suspected cases with fever and dry cough begin to be transferred to a designated hospital.

An epidemiological alert is released by the Wuhan local health authority.

JAN. 4-JAN. 1-JAN. 3-Taiwan warns the International Health Regulations (Taiwan is not a member of the World Health Organization [WHO]) that the new disease is transmitted from human to human. Its warning is not shared with other countries.Taiwan also starts monitoring all incoming travelers from Wuhan.

Daszak sends a 19-tweet thread culminating with the claim that human-wildlife-livestock interface is the likely source of the outbreak in Wuhan.

The Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan is shut down.

Chinese officials provide information to the WHO “on the cluster of cases of ‘viral pneumonia of unknown cause’ identified in Wuhan.”

WHO sends a tweet that “China has reported to WHO a cluster of pneumonia cases —with no deaths— in Wuhan, Hubei Province. Investigations are underway to identify the cause of this illness.”


JAN. 12-The Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center’s Zhang Yongzhen and his team publish the COVID-19 genomic sequence on open platforms. According to Holmes, a collaborator of Zhang’s, Chinese and Western scientists obtained the full sequence a week prior, but were pressured by Chinese authorities not to publish it.

Holmes would be listed as a co-author of Kristian Andersen’s Feb. 16, 2020, “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2” paper, which promoted the natural origins theory.

Chinese authorities reportedly form “an expert team of physicians, epidemiologists, virologists, and government officials” shortly after the Dec. 31, 2019, alert.

Holmes obtains the full genomic sequence of COVID-19. He does not share it publicly due to pressure from Chinese authorities.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology obtains the genomic sequence of COVID-19.

The laboratory at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center is ordered to close for “rectification,” one day after professor Zhang Yongzhen’s team published the genomic sequence of COVID-19 on open platforms. The closure order was issued by the Shanghai Health Commission.

JAN. 21-WHO posts a tweet citing Chinese authorities as saying there was no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission.

Kristian Andersen sends a tweet praising China’s virus response. Andersen would later take on a prominent role in Fauci’s creation of the natural origins narrative.

Fauci donates Remdesivir samples to China for an experimental clinical trial to test its effectiveness against COVID-19. Remdesivir was developed with taxpayer funds by Fort Detrick scientists and the American pharmaceutical company GILEAD.

The world’s largest banquet, attended by more than 40,000 families, is held in a populous district of Wuhan to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology registers the Chinese patent for Remdesivir.

JAN. 30-?????Lockdown measures go into effect in Wuhan.

A study is published in The Lancet that shows that three of the first four identified patients–including Patient 1–had no known exposure to the Huanan seafood market. One-third of all known patients had no exposure to the market. The market, which reportedly also sold butchered animal meat, did not sell bats. Chinese authorities would later rule out the market as the source of the pandemic.

The CDC reports the first case of person-to-person transmission in the United States.

The WHO claims person-to-person transmission outside of China has been limited.

The WHO declares the coronavirus outbreak a global public health emergency. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director of the WHO, says, “The speed with which China detected the outbreak, isolated the virus, sequenced the genome and shared it with WHO and the world are very impressive.”

FEB. 3-President Donald Trump halts flights from China.Andersen tells Fauci’s teleconference group he’s “60 to 70 percent” sure the virus came from a laboratory. Holmes tells the teleconference group he’s “80 percent sure the virus came out of a lab.”

Secret Teleconference Timeline Below.

Biden criticizes Trump’s travel ban in a tweet: “We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”

China officials respond to Trump’s travel ban by claiming that it is “neither based on facts, nor helpful.” “Many countries have offered China help and support through various ways. In contrast, the U.S. comments and actions are neither based on facts, nor helpful at this particular time,” foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said in a statement.

Shi and her collaborators state in a new article that scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology had a close match to the virus that causes COVID-19. It would later be discovered that the virus that Shi referenced was actually RaBtCoV/4991, the virus that was taken from the Mojiang mine back in 2012.

FEB. 6-Fauci, Daszak, Andersen, and other scientists are invited to a meeting organized by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) to “help determine the origins” of the COVID-19 virus. The meeting is organized on short notice at the request of White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Director Kelvin Droegemeier. Fauci gives a 10-minute presentation.

Fauci and the other scientists push the natural origins theory but are ultimately ignored by NASEM in a Feb. 6, 2020, response to the White House.

A paper by Chinese researchers Xiao Botao and Xiao Lei states that the coronavirus probably originated from either the Wuhan Institute of Virology or the Wuhan CDC. The authors reveal that the Wuhan CDC, located a mere 900 feet from the Huanan Seafood Market, kept live animals for research. The paper is quickly removed from ResearchGate

In addition to the labs operated by the Wuhan institute, China’s CDC also operates a separate level-2 biosafety lab in Wuhan that was experimenting with bat coronaviruses.

WHO Director Tedros issues his “Report of the Director-General,” which includes a call to “combat the spread of rumours and misinformation.” Tedros states that “social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Tencent, and TikTok have also taken steps to limit the spread of misinformation.”

In an article published in the journal Emerging Microbes & Infections, researchers at Wuhan University (separate from the Wuhan Institute of Virology) write that they found a close relative of COVID-19 in a Chinese database called RaBtCoV/4991. It would later be learned that this is the same virus that Shi renamed as RaTG13 two days earlier on Feb. 3, 2020.

Dr. Li Wenliang dies of COVID-19. Li had attempted to warn colleagues about a mysterious new respiratory virus over online forums.

FEB. 16-Andersen, Holmes, Robert Garry, Andrew Rambaut, and Ian Lipkin’s article “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2,” claiming that the virus has natural origins, is published online.

According to Garry, the first draft of this article was finished on Feb. 1, the same day that Andersen told Fauci’s teleconference group he was “60 to 70 percent” sure the virus came from a laboratory. Holmes told the group at the time that he was “80 percent sure the virus came out of a lab.”

Lipkin, who would later retract his opinion, was the only author who didn’t participate in the Fauci teleconference.

Rutgers University’s Ebright, who had warned about the Wuhan Institute of Virology in 2015, tells Caixin that data indicated that either the virus began infecting people naturally or it entered the population due to a lab mishap.

Shi posts on Chinese social media: “The novel 2019 coronavirus is nature punishing the human race for keeping uncivilized living habits. I, Shi Zheng-Li, swear on my life that it has nothing to do with our laboratory. ... 

I advise those who believe and spread rumors from harmful media sources, as well as those who believe the unreliable so-called academic analysis of Indian scholars, to shut their stinking mouths.”

Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping calls for legislation on a new biosecurity law to be accelerated.

Ebright says the lab leak theory cannot and should not be dismissed.

FEB. 24-The Lancet publishes a letter claiming that the coronavirus originated in wildlife and condemning theories of a non-natural origin as conspiracy theories that “do nothing but create fear, rumour, and prejudice.” It would later be revealed that Daszak orchestrated the letter and that 26 out of 27 signatories are linked to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. A number of signatories would later retract their support for the letter.

Chinese military scientists file a patent application for a COVID-19 vaccine. China’s early work on a vaccine raises concerns that China was aware of the virus earlier than publicly acknowledged.

A participant in Fauci’s secret teleconference, Marion Koopmans, admits 

on Dutch TV that coronaviruses were being “changed,” “modified,” and “added to” in China.

Shi tells Scientific American that she initially feared the virus might have come from her lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Shi claims she breathed a sigh of relief when the results came back and none of the sequences matched those of the viruses her team had sampled from bat caves. “That really took a load off my mind ... I had not slept a wink for days.” When asked about the Mojiang mine, Shi states that the miners’ illnesses and deaths stemmed from an unrelated fungal infection.

Trump announces “15 days to slow the spread.”

MARCH 17-University of Innsbruck bioengineer Rossana Segreto notes that the RaBtCoV/4991 virus, which had been in Shi’s possession for seven years, is an exact match for COVID-19’s closest relative. Shi had concealed the source of this virus by renaming it RaTG13 in her Feb. 3, 2020, paper.

Andersen’s Feb. 16, 2020, “Proximal Origin” article is republished in Nature. The article claims that the virus has natural origins. One author would later retract, claiming that he did not know that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was working on bat viruses in a lab with insufficient biosafety.

China lifts lockdown on Wuhan.

President Trump suggests he has seen information suggesting that the pandemic started at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

CNBC reports that the intelligence community “is examining whether the virus that caused a global pandemic emerged accidentally from a Chinese research lab studying diseases in bats.” Intelligence agencies have reportedly “ruled-out” that the virus was “man-made.”

APRIL 27-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggests that the pandemic started at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Fauci dismisses the possibility of a lab origin 

for the virus, citing Andersen’s “Proximal Origin” paper (see Feb 16, 2020), and claiming not to remember Andersen’s name.

Trump tasks the National Security Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency with looking into the origins of the pandemic. It would later become known that one of the experts consulted by the intelligence community was Daszak.

Trump terminates Daszak’s grant for his research with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Despite Trump’s cancellation, Fauci would soon award Daszak a much larger grant, on Aug. 27, 2020

A video is uploaded to YouTube showing dilapidated conditions and waste accumulation on Wuhan Institute of Virology grounds.

MAY 18-During a White House event, Trump again suggests a possible leak at a lab in Wuhan. “When asked whether he had seen evidence that suggested that the virus originated at the Wuhan lab, Trump responded: 'Yes, I have.' When asked about specifics, Trump stated: 'I can’t tell you that. I’m not allowed to tell you that.'”

In addition to the labs operated by the Wuhan Institute of Virology, China’s CDC also operates a separate level-2 biosafety lab in Wuhan that was experimenting on bat coronaviruses.

The U.S. intelligence community issues a statement claiming that the virus likely had “natural origins.”

The Lancet’s editor-in-chief appears on Chinese state-run media, praising the Chinese government’s response to the virus and dismissing lab leak theories.

Fauci says there is no scientific evidence that the virus was made “in a Chinese lab.” He adds that he sees no difference between the virus being brought to a lab and escaping and the virus spilling over in nature.

An internet user locates a 2013 Chinese master’s thesis that references the three deceased Mojiang miners. The thesis reveals that China’s “hero of SARS,” Dr. Zhong Nanshan, was brought in to diagnose the new disease. It concludes that the miners’ death was from a SARS-like coronavirus from horseshoe bats. Additionally, a 2016 Chinese doctoral thesis is 

found that confirms that a team from the Wuhan Institute of Virology collected bat samples from the Mojiang mine.

JULY 15-Samples taken from animals at the Huanan Seafood Market all test negative for SARS-CoV-2. Chinese CDC director Gao Fu states: “At first, we assumed the seafood market might have the virus, but now the market is more like a victim. The novel coronavirus had existed long before.”

Former MI6 head Richard Dearlove says he believes the virus escaped from a Chinese lab and that evidence of the leak has likely been destroyed by the Chinese regime.

In an apparent reference to the deaths of three miners at the Mojiang mine, Shi collaborator Linfa Wang tells National Geographic: “When we have prevented small outbreaks, people don’t care. It doesn’t get media attention. ... In Wuhan, if three people died and it was controlled, would we know it? No. This is happening all the time. It’s just in remote villages where people die. You bury them and end of the story, right?”A paper by European scientists presents evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was engineered.

Shi gives a lengthy statement to Science in which she denies that the virus came from her lab.

NOV. 7-NBC News is the first foreign news organization that is granted access to the Wuhan Institute of Virology since the start of the outbreak. During interviews, officials “strongly [deny] that the virus could have originated at the institute” and claim that “scientists at the institute obtained their first samples of the coronavirus after the disease had begun to spread among the public.”

Daszak denies that the virus could have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. He acknowledges that he worked with the institute for 16 years.

Andersen and Daszak receive large grants from Fauci’s NIAID.

It is unknown why Fauci awarded this new, larger grant to Daszak after his previous grant had been terminated by Trump on April 24, 2020.

Daszak’s cumulative grant funds are reported to total $7.5 million.

Ralph Baric, who co-wrote the NIAID-funded Nov. 2015 paper that triggered warnings about the pandemic risks of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s experiments, tells Italian TV: ​​“You can engineer a virus without leaving any trace. The answers you are looking for, however, can only be found in the archives of the Wuhan laboratory.”

Daszak celebrates Biden’s win online and looks forward to hitting the baiju (Chinese liquor) with Shi.

JANUARY-During a conference call later aired on Danish TV, the lead origins investigator for the WHO, Peter Ben 

Embarek says the Wuhan CDC was handling coronaviruses “without potentially having the same level of expertise or safety or who knows.”

Embarek would later note that the pandemic “may well have been started by an employee at one of [Wuhan’s] laboratories.”

None of this information is contained in the formal WHO report.

Shi publishes an addendum to her Feb. 3, 2020, article admitting that bat samples collected from 2012 to 2015 were actually from the Mojiang mine. Shi also admits that she renamed RaBtCoV/4991, the closest known relative to COVID-19, to RaTG13 in her Feb. 3, 2020, paper.

Daszak writes in a tweet that no bats were taken to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. He later deletes 

the tweet.

The BBC’s China correspondent reports that he was repeatedly thwarted by Chinese authorities from accessing the area of the Mojiang mine.

Embarek gives a press conference in Wuhan 

where he makes the claim that the virus had natural origins. He says that the lab leak hypothesis is “extremely unlikely.”

FEB. 12-Daszak makes informal comments to reporters following the WHO’s Wuhan press conference, stating that the Huanan Seafood Market was the source of the virus.

Tedros says that “all hypotheses are on the table.”

A WSJ article states that the Chinese authorities refused to provide raw data on early COVID-19 cases to WHO investigators.

Roland Wiesendanger of the University of Hamburg publishes a study tracking how bat virus experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology over the past decade aligned with the emergence of COVID-19 from the institute.

The WHO publishes a report titled “WHO-Convened Global Study of Origins of SARS-CoV-2: China Part.” A laboratory incident is considered to be “extremely unlikely.”

Tedros states that he believes the WHO’s assessment was not extensive enough.

The United States and 13 other governments call for a “transparent and independent analysis and evaluation, free from interference and undue influence, of the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Former New York Times science editor Nicholas Wade publishes an article laying out the case for a lab leak.It’s reported that congressional Republicans are conducting at least two investigations into the lab leak scenario.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells a Fox affiliate network that he has “seen enormous evidence that suggests that the most likely initial point of transmission was the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

Eighteen prominent scientists, including Shi’s collaborator Ralph Baric, write an open letter in Science calling for the investigation and consideration of the lab leak hypothesis.

Lipkin, co-signatory of Andersen’s “Proximal Origin” letter, says that he has now changed his view on whether the virus came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology: “It shouldn’t have happened. ... People should not be looking at bat viruses in BSL-2 labs.”

The WSJ reports that the Chinese authorities have set up checkpoints leading to a Yunnan Province mine where three miners died from COVID-19-like symptoms in 2012. A WSJ reporter is detained while mountain biking in the area.

Trump states that he is near certain that the virus leaked from a Wuhan lab.

The Biden administration announces an expanded investigation into the origins of COVID-19.

Former President of the White House Correspondents’ Association Jonathan Karl claims that the lab leak scenario was dismissed by the media because Donald Trump supported it.

JUNE 1-3Embarek tells Danish TV2 that the lab leak hypothesis is likely correct, stating: “A lab employee infected in the field while collecting samples in a bat cave—such a scenario belongs both as a lab-leak hypothesis and as our first hypothesis of direct infection from bat to human. We’ve seen that hypothesis as a likely hypothesis.”

This information is not in the WHO report, and Embarek had previously publicly stated that a lab leak was “extremely unlikely.”

Fauci admits that the virus may have originated from a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Asked about the virus origins, Secretary of State Antony Blinken calls for China to be “held accountable for what happened” and “for their failure to cooperate.”

Sky News publishes footage from the Wuhan institute of Virology showing that live bats were kept in the institute’s laboratory.

Biden acknowledges at 

the G-7 summit that COVID-19 may be the result of a laboratory experiment gone awry.

JUNE 18-Virologist Jesse Bloom publishes a paper that shows that the Huanan Seafood Market was not the origin of the pandemic. He relies on recovered data that had been deleted from an NIH database at the behest of a Chinese researcher.

The Lancet issues an addendum to the Feb. 19, 2020, “Proximal Origins” letter, clarifying Daszak’s competing interests.

Farrar states that Andersen was initially 60 to 70 percent sure the virus came from a laboratory. Farrar states that Andersen later changed his mind and concluded the virus had natural origins.

Farrar’s claim ignores the fact that Andersen was privately telling Fauci on Jan. 31, 2020, that the virus was engineered while publicly claiming the opposite at the same time.

Andersen was one of several recipients of large grants from Fauci’s NIAID on Aug. 27, 2020.

Embarek’s June 2021 interview is aired on Danish TV. In it, Embarek claims that Chinese scientists and officials withheld information and pressured the WHO’s team to drop the lab leak theory. After a 48-hour discussion with Chinese authorities, they agree to allow the lab leak theory to be mentioned, but only “on the condition we didn’t recommend any specific studies to further that hypothesis” and that it was deemed to be “extremely unlikely.”

None of this information is contained in the formal 

WHO report.The Director of National Intelligence releases a declassified summary of the Intelligence Community’s assessment of the origins of COVID-19. The report fails to come to a conclusion, finding that both a “natural exposure to an infected animal and a laboratory-associated incident” are plausible
