Somehow the media fail to fully probe an urgent pandemic issue, the increasingly strong indications that this insidious, unrelenting, and almost diabolic virus haunting the world was at least in part concocted in a Chinese laboratory — perhaps in collusion with a lab in the United States. We had a “special report” on this more than a year ago.
It is urgent because if this pathogen indeed has synthetic components, which it appears to many geneticists (though certainly not all) that it does, it could grant us an idea of what the final trajectory might be — where it could go, how many more mutations it may have up its sleeve, what can best medicate victims, how further to battle it, and perhaps even when the pandemic will finally end.
Shockingly, it is now coming to light that there are what they call “cleavage” sites on the coronavirus that made them more readily attach to human protein sites (far more transmissible) — too readily; suspiciously so. The virus, notes one journalist who has investigated, gained that functionality without going through the number of mutations normally seen when a pathogen simply jumps to humans directly from animals. In other words, from the starting gate it seemed “ready-made” for humans.
The news last week that the infamous lab in Wuhan (led by “batwoman” Dr. Shi Zhengli) had applied to the U.S. military’s Advanced Research Project Agency for a huge grant to make the coronavirus both more transmissible and more dangerous (lab speak: augment its “pathogenicity”) only furthered suspicions.
That grant application was done by way of a New York-based group called EcoHealth Alliance, which has funneled money to researchers such as Dr. Zhengli.
Ostensibly, they then wanted to develop an immunization procedure in bats that would halt such a dangerous virus from spreading in the event, someday, of an outbreak.
That was the stated purpose, and it sounds good on the surface — “gain-of-function” alterations in the name of seeing how bad a virus might get and how then to battle it.
But curious it is that the pandemic erupted soon after. Astoundingly, the Wuhan scientists wanted to release the genetically-enhanced virus into bat caves.
Though the U.S. government denied the request for that particular project, the Chinese scientists may well have gone forward anyway, using “humanized” and “batified” mice in development of the enhanced virus. (“Humanized” and “batified” mean rodents that had been altered to have certain human and bat cells or genes for testing).
This opens several dramatic possibilities. One is that the greatly enhanced virus (perhaps made to carry a viral load ten to 10,000 times higher than normal) escaped directly from the lab; got away while in transit (perhaps between labs or to a bat cave); or spread in a cave and then worked its way to intermediary animals.
Bear with this all another moment, for it becomes yet more intriguing.
Note that the request for U.S. grant money (which DARPA denied due to the dangers) was in 2019, and that even before that — in 2014 — the National Institutes of Health (which includes in its hierarchy Dr. Anthony Fauci) awarded a five-year grant to EcoHealth Alliance, though not for direct gain-of-function research. A key collaborator was a U.S. scientist in great need of investigation: Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina. He worked alongside the Wuhan lab and Dr. Zhengli.
In 2015, a mouse infected with the coronavirus bit a worker at the North Carolina lab — leaving us with the possibility that this virus has escaped more than once, and in various parts of the world.
According to ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative publication, “reports indicate UNC researchers were potentially exposed to lab-created coronaviruses in several incidents since 2015″ [our italics]. That’s years before the December 2019 outbreak commonly cited as the pandemic’s beginning.
Anyway this matter is sliced (or spliced), the “bottom line” is that a virus made so transmissible — with no need for further mutation — would nearly be destined to escape — and may have done so a number of times, in both China and the United States. It also opens the possibility that the altered virus has been around longer than thought.
Might this be why some “flu” viruses as early as the beginning of 2019, if not sooner, bore a resemblance to covid, which then apparently escaped with a greater load in Wuhan? Did the Wuhan scientists bring any of their altered viruses to the U.S. during the grant process, or to the North Carolina lab for further work — or take an altered pathogen from UNC home to Wuhan with them for further meddling?
And might it have escaped during that transit (if transit there was)?
A true mystery.
While no one is saying that UNC created the covid coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), alone or with Wuhan, and while the lab was conducting what it calls “critical” research to understand what viruses exist in nature and how, theoretically, they could affect humans (and how better to combat them), the possibilities for accidents are obvious.
Think about it: this idea that both American and Chinese scientists were playing around with an immensely transmissible “Frankenstein” concatenation — one made to be deadlier not just due to transmissibility, but in its pathogenicity — its very actions, upon the human organism (all in the name of science).
If that’s what occurred, it is the first time such a disaster has happened on such a scale in human history.
And it would go far in explaining the coronavirus’s bizarre range of effects: none for some, or just minor ones, comparable to a common “cold”; while others lapse into comas, develop severe long-term lung, kidney, or heart problems, suffocate from pneumonia, and even lose use of their limbs).
Reports ProPublica, “Records show that during the five years before the pandemic began, at least six UNV researchers were required to undergo medical monitoring following four incidents where they were potentially exposed to what the NIH now confirms were types of lab-created SARS coronaviruses.”
Where are you, New York Times? Washington Post? Fox News? CNN?
“In November 2015, UNC scientists published a research paper detailing how they had created a lab-made hybrid coronavirus called SHCO14-CoV found in Chinese horseshoe bats into a SARS virus to see if lab-made hybrids — called a chimera — could efficiently infect human cells.” (It could and did.)
Fascinating it is that in looking at the research history of the group of viruses that fall under the umbrella of “coronaviruses,” Spirit Daily noticed that in the early days of research, the virus could not be cultivated using standard techniques which had successfully cultivated other viruses for study. In 1965, however, two scientists named David Tyrrell and Malcolm Bynoe successfully cultivated the “novel virus” by passing it through an organ culture of human embryonic trachea — in other words, cells derived from an aborted fetus.
If cell lines derived from abortion were used in the early days of coronavirus research, the question is whether they also were deployed at Wuhan, in North Carolina, or both to devise the allegedly synthesized one that has caused this nefarious pandemic?
Has abortion come back to haunt us, in ways never imagined?
It also raises this rumination: Is the natural immune system equipped to adequately respond to something so unnatural — something synthesized? The virus is a single strand of RNA. Is an opposing RNA needed to combat it?
This gets into the area of vaccines, which one can no longer calmly debate in a “toxic” and at times ridiculously contentious sociological atmosphere. We’ll therefore steer clear from it. The question for personal discernment: Which is more perilous, a synthetic vaccine or a synthetic pathogen? (The Holy Spirit knows; go to Him.)
As for that question of how long the pandemic may last, we may well have gotten a notion from the chief executive at Moderna, Stéphane Bancel, last week. Contrary to those who fret over an endless pandemic, he sees the end of it coming about a year from now.
That’s pretty good news (contingent, of course, on no additional, potent variants).
“If you look at the industry-wide expansion of production capacities over the past six months, enough doses should be available by the middle of next year so that everyone on this earth can be vaccinated,” he said in an interview with a Swiss newspaper, Neue Zurcher Zeitung. “Boosters should also be possible to the extent required.” Asked if that meant a return to normal in the second half of next year, he said: “As of today, in a year, I assume. Those who do not get vaccinated will immunize themselves naturally, because the Delta variant is so contagious. In this way we will end up in a situation similar to that of the flu. You can either get vaccinated and have a good winter. Or you don’t do it and risk getting sick and possibly even ending up in hospital.” Meanwhile, those who are exposed but don’t become seriously ill — a majority — would likewise develop antibodies to ward off covid.
The main “takeaway”: that with natural immunity (in the unvaccinated, as well as in those who are “breakthrough” cases) and artificially-induced immunity (in the vaccinated), this may devolve soon (God willing) into something similar to annual influenza.
It’s a good notion, and one likewise we must hold in prayer.
The monoclonal antibodies as a wonder medication?
These certainly have been proved effective, though their administration is intravenous (an IV is needed) — and, like some of the vaccines, they involved cell lines derived decades ago from an aborted baby (HEK293T ) in their development.
But there is further good news: Scientists are working on an anti-viral pill to treat COVID-19 in its earliest stages. Antivirals are already essential treatments in other diseases, such as hepatitis C and HIV, according to NBC News.
“Antivirals have the potential to not only curtail the duration of one’s COVID-19 syndrome, but also have the potential to limit transmission to people in your household if you are sick,” explained Dr. Timothy Sheahan, a virologist and assistant professor at the Gillings School of Global Health at the University of North Carolina, to a news outlet.
The best medicine?
That would be massive repentance — starting with abortion.
