The MSM inadvertently covered for China because of their hatred for Trump. But now that Biden has decided to look into the origins of the coronavirus the media has admitted there might be something to Trump’s claims about the virus leaking from a Chinese lab. According to Dr. Steven Quay and UC Berkeley emeritus professor of physics Richard Muller, this virus was definitely lab leaked.
In a WSJ OP-Ed, the experts explained some of their results.
“Although the double CGG is suppressed naturally, the opposite is true in laboratory work. The insertion sequence of choice is the double CGG. That’s because it is readily available and convenient, and scientists have a great deal of experience inserting it. An additional advantage of the double CGG sequence compared with the other 35 possible choices: It creates a useful beacon that permits the scientists to track the insertion in the laboratory.
Now the damning fact. It was this exact sequence that appears in CoV-2. Proponents of zoonotic origin must explain why the novel coronavirus, when it mutated or recombined, happened to pick its least favorite combination, the double CGG. Why did it replicate the choice the lab’s gain-of-function researchers would have made?”
“There is additional scientific evidence that points to CoV-2’s gain-of-function origin. The most compelling is the dramatic differences in the genetic diversity of CoV-2, compared with the coronaviruses responsible for SARS and MERS.
Both of those were confirmed to have a natural origin; the viruses evolved rapidly as they spread through the human population, until the most contagious forms dominated. Covid-19 didn’t work that way. It appeared in humans already adapted into an extremely contagious version. No serious viral “improvement” took place until a minor variation occurred many months later in England.
Such early optimization is unprecedented, and it suggests a long period of adaptation that predated its public spread. Science knows of only one way that could be achieved: simulated natural evolution, growing the virus on human cells until the optimum is achieved. That is precisely what is done in gain-of-function research. Mice that are genetically modified to have the same coronavirus receptor as humans, called “humanized mice,” are repeatedly exposed to the virus to encourage adaptation.”
We should have handled this while Trump was in office. China was afraid of Trump, they don’t think much of Biden. You can tell since China has been dodging our diplomats, and told us to our face in Alaska, that they think we can no longer speak from a position of power. Trump would have had this handled and China would already be doling out some form of reparations to the world. But with Biden in the White House, we’d be lucky to get an apology.
