Wuhan Lab Leak: Uncovering the Truth about the Origins of COVID-19

The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic recently held a hearing on the origins of COVID-19. The hearing brought forth many pieces of evidence that point towards the possibility of the virus originating from a lab in Wuhan. As Select Subcommittee Chairman Brad Wenstrup emphasized, determining the virus's origin is crucial to prepare for future pandemics, protect national security, and ensure public health.

Understanding the Importance of Investigating the Origins of COVID-19

The hearing opened with the chairman emphasizing the importance of knowing the virus's origins. The Select Subcommittee is committed to investigating the issue truthfully and responsibly to protect future generations from pandemics. As Dr. Jamie Metzl stated during the hearing, "the victims of the next pandemic, our children and grandchildren, will ask us why we failed to protect when we knew what was at stake and had the chance."

COVID-19 May Have Emerged from Wuhan Lab

Dr. Robert Redfield, the former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other witnesses testified that evidence indicates that COVID-19 may have originated from an accidental leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). Dr. Redfield's testimony is based on the virus's biology and unusual activities that occurred in Wuhan in 2019, such as gain-of-function research at the WIV.

Dr. Nicholas Wade, a former science and health editor at the New York Times, testified that Drs. Fauci and Collins ignored the lab leak theory and chose to stick to natural transmission, using unverified data. Moreover, Dr. Jamie Metzl testified that the Chinese government destroyed samples, hid records, imprisoned Chinese journalists, prevented Chinese scientists from sharing information about the pandemic's origins, actively spread misinformation, and obstructed evidence-based investigations.

The Role of the Mainstream Media in Discrediting the Lab Leak Theory

During the hearing, Dr. Nicholas Wade pointed out that the mainstream media downplayed and denied the lab leak theory, allowing scientists to follow the natural origin theory, led by Drs. Fauci and Collins. Moreover, the media failed to challenge the forced narrative, and scientists who spoke against it risked losing their government grants.

The Need to Investigate Gain-of-Function Research

Subcommittee Chairman Dr. Wenstrup raised concerns about gain-of-function research, which involves modifying a pathogen to increase either its transmissibility or pathogenicity. Dr. Redfield confirmed during the hearing that the Wuhan Institute was conducting such research on a batch of coronaviruses.

Take Action: The Possibility of COVID-19 Originating from a Lab is not a Conspiracy Theory

All witnesses at the hearing agreed that the possibility of COVID-19 originating from a lab is not a conspiracy theory. Investigating the origins of COVID-19 is critical to prevent future pandemics and protect public health.
