Two prominent U.S. scientists are pointing to anomalies in the COVID-19 virus they believe point to a man-made origin. Their findings were reported Sunday in the Wall Street Journal and were quickly picked up by other outlets.
The scientists, Richard Muller of UC Berkeley and Dr. Steven Quay, a physician and founder of Atossa Therapeutics, said, “COVID-19 has a genetic footprint that has never been observed in a natural coronavirus.”
The details of the explosive claims, which bolster observations by other researchers, involve certain gene-level sequencing patterns. According to Muller and Quay, the “CGG-CGG” pattern in the COVID-19 virus is not found in nature but is common in lab situations with scientists who have performed “gain-of-function” experiments.
The scientists wrote:
“The CGG-CGG combination has never been found naturally. That means the common method of viruses picking up new skills, called recombination, cannot operate here. A virus simply cannot pick up a sequence from another virus if that sequence isn't present in any other virus.”
That science-based bombshell dovetailed with another weekend report citing former FDA head Scott Gottlieb. Gottlieb revealed that Dr. Anthony Fauci briefed world leaders in the spring of 2020 that the strain of COVID-19 “looked unusual” and may have originated in a Wuhan, China bio lab.
For much of Fauci’s COVID reign, MSM outlets and social media platforms made the Wuhan lab possibility verboten at his word and shielded him from criticisms about his conflicting dictates regarding lockdowns, masks, social distancing, and other COVID policies.
Our 18 May Trends Journal article, “BATSH*T CRAZY: WUHAN WALLS CLOSING IN AROUND FAUCI” forecast the media wall protecting the U.S. COVID czar was about to crumble.
The Trends Journal was the first to forecast a worldwide over-reaction to the COVID-19 that would be more devastating than the virus itself. (See our 28 January 2020 issue titled, “CORONAVIRUS: 106 DEAD IN CHINA, 1.4 BILLION STILL ALIVE: THE NEW BLACK PLAGUE?”)
