We are being told that the coronavirus outbreak which is currently escalating at an exponential rate probably started with a snake. Perhaps that is true, but a lot of researchers are now pointing out some really odd “coincidences” regarding this outbreak. For example, China’s very first biosafety-level-4 lab is located just 20 miles away from where this outbreak supposedly originated. And a news report about this lab from a few years ago specifically stated that it would be “studying the pathogen that causes SARS”. Of course SARS was caused by a coronavirus, and now a “new coronavirus” has been unleashed in the only Chinese city where coronavirus research was being conducted.
I will discuss this more later in the article, but first I want to talk about the very odd “coincidence” that a U.S. patent for “an attenuated coronavirus” was granted not too long ago. As you can see right here, the patent was filed in July 2015 and it was granted in November 2018.
So it has just been a little over a year since the patent was granted.
According to a summary of this patent, this attenuated coronavirus “may be used as a vaccine for treating and/or preventing a disease”…
take our poll - story continues below
The present invention provides a live, attenuated coronavirus comprising a variant replicase gene encoding polyproteins comprising a mutation in one or more of non-structural protein(s) (nsp)-10, nsp-14, nsp-15 or nsp-16. The coronavirus may be used as a vaccine for treating and/or preventing a disease, such as infectious bronchitis, in a subject.
This patent was filed by the Pilbright Institute, and as Stefan Stanford has pointed out, some of the major backers of the Pilbright Institute include the World Health Organization, the European Commission, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Okay, that is more than just a little bit weird.
Could it be possible that researchers at the biosafety-level-4 lab in Wuhan were studying this “attenuated coronavirus”?
We don’t have an answer to that question, but what we do know is that this biosafety-level-4 lab was the very first one to be constructed in China.
According to an article that was published by Nature in February 2017, this lab would be working “with the world’s most dangerous pathogens” once it opened…
A laboratory in Wuhan is on the cusp of being cleared to work with the world’s most dangerous pathogens. The move is part of a plan to build between five and seven biosafety level-4 (BSL-4) labs across the Chinese mainland by 2025, and has generated much excitement, as well as some concerns.
Some scientists outside China worry about pathogens escaping, and the addition of a biological dimension to geopolitical tensions between China and other nations. But Chinese microbiologists are celebrating their entrance to the elite cadre empowered to wrestle with the world’s greatest biological threats.
There are less than 60 such labs on the entire planet, and they are equipped with cutting edge equipment. The following comes from the Daily Mail…
It was the first ever lab in the country designed to meet biosafetey-level-4 (BSL-4) standards – the highest biohazard level, meaning that it would be qualified to handle the most dangerous pathogens.
BSL-4 labs have to be equipped with airtight hazmat suits or special ‘cabinet’ work spaces that confine viruses and bacteria that can be transmitted through the air to sealed boxes that scientists reach into using attached high-grade gloves.
The lab cost approximately 44 million dollars to build, and the Nature article specifically mentioned that future plans for the facility included “studying the pathogen that causes SARS”.
In other words, coronavirus research was to be conducted in this lab.
Perhaps it is just a wild coincidence that the coronavirus outbreak began in the only city in China with a biosafety-level-4 lab that was conducting coronavirus research.
An article that was just posted by LiveScience seems to think that this is actually a fortuitous development…
As an escalating viral outbreak unfolds in China, only one lab in the country meets the required biosafety standards needed to study the new disease.
The lab happens to sit in the center of Wuhan, the city where the newly identified coronavirus first appeared, according to the Hindustan Times, an Indian news outlet. The facility, known as the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory, is housed within the Chinese Academy of Sciences and was specifically designed to help Chinese scientists “prepare for and respond to future infectious disease outbreaks,” according to a 2019 report published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Nobody in the mainstream media is likely to connect the dots, and we shouldn’t expect them to do so. But it is very interesting to note that the SARS virus “has escaped from high-level containment facilities in Beijing multiple times”…
But worries surround the Chinese lab, too. The SARS virus has escaped from high-level containment facilities in Beijing multiple times, notes Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey.
Of course those facilities were not biosafety-level-4 labs, but it does show a pattern of past negligence that is definitely quite alarming.
The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory is located approximately 20 miles away from the Huanan Seafood Market where this outbreak supposedly originated.
Perhaps the lab had absolutely nothing to do with this outbreak and instead a really sick snake unleashed this pathogen on the world.
You can believe that if you want, but for many of us the “coincidences” are starting to become too startling to ignore.
