Wuhan lab staff sought hospital care before Covid-19 outbreak disclosed

FLIP-FLOP FAUCI The Dr. has completely reversed his position on the origins of COVID from a year ago

The Wall Street Journal first reported on the intelligence report over the earlier hospitalizations.

A joint study into the origins of COVID-19 by the World Health Organization and China published at the end of March said it was "extremely unlikely" that it had escaped from a lab. "We're not going to make pronouncements that prejudge an ongoing World Health Organization study into the source of SARS-CoV-2".

Three researchers from the Chinese Institute of Virology in Wuhan (WIV) were treated in a hospital in November 2019.

"It's a complete lie", director Yuan Zhiming told Global Times.

Metzl said the USA and other countries are dragging their feet on properly investigating his claim because of China's deep "political influence".

A senior Chinese official in May 2020 confirmed that China's National Health Commission (NHC) had in early January ordered labs throughout the country to destroy coronavirus samples.

"Through field visits and in-depth visits in China, the experts unanimously agreed that the allegation of lab leaking is extremely unlikely", Zhao said.

On Monday, Fauci told Weijia Jiang of CBS he still believes that Covid-19 originated naturally.

Released five years ahead the Covid-19 outbreak, it nails Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronaviruses as a "new era of genetic weapons" that can be "artificially manipulated into an emerging human edisease virus, then weaponised and unleashed in a way never seen before". But they admitted to not having viewed the raw data and original records from the lab, including safety records.

Many still uncertain about AstraZeneca as their second dose
The WHO initially asked them to hold onto the vaccines until it could establish whether they could be still be used. As 55,000 of the remaining doses are set to expire at the end of May, pharmacies said they can respond quickly.

Psaki did not comment on the Journal report, but instead made clear that the White House is committed to getting answers through an "expert-driven evaluation of the pandemic's origins that is free from interference or politicization". On the other hand, the same story skews what the forum is bound to consider as its chief priority: interventions to end the pandemic, much less reconfiguring a multilayered COVID-19 origins inquiry to suit adverse expectations.

Fauci and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) clashed in the course of the listening to over whether or not the USA authorities funded "gain of function" analysis on the Wuhan lab - a course of of creating a virus stronger in a managed lab setting as a solution to generate higher vaccines to defeat it.

"That possibility certainly exists, and I am totally in favour of a full investigation of whether that could have happened", Fauci replied. Intelligence reporting about possible November infections among Wuhan Institute employees "can't be dismissed" by USA researchers, the source added.

Another person described intelligence as stronger. The findings were on a State Department fact sheet that said they went to the hospital "with symptoms consistent with both COVID-19 and common seasonal illness".

CNN report The process of declassifying the Intelligence Fact Sheet took a long time, and certain details were edited from the released version.

"Do you think it's possible that COVID-19 arose from a lab accident ... in Wuhan, and should it be fully investigated?"

One of the challenges in developing any certainty is access to the lab itself.

Third, Chinese lack of transparency during the conduct of investigations to determine the origin of the pandemic at Wuhan has further strengthened the lab escape proposition. "What we do share, everyone in this country, is a desire to know how this started, where it started, and prevent it from ever happening again".
