After about a year of being dismissed and marginalized, those who have questioned whether or not COVID-19 originated from the Wuhan lab are being vindicated as more details emerge.
Speaking on Fox News, David Asher, leader of the Trump Administration’s COVID-19 investigation origins, said the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) was doing “some very hairy stuff with synthetic biology.” He added that the US government estimated the probability of COVID-19 “evolving” naturally was 1-in-13 billion.
The investigation probe found “almost no evidence that supported a natural, zoonotic … evolution, or source of COVID-19 … the data disproportionately stacked up as we investigated that it was coming out of a lab or some supernatural source.”
Regarding the purpose of activities begin conducted within WIV, Asher said, “the pathogenicity or the virulence of coronavirus vectors that were radically unnatural.”
Asher went on to say, “They were not similar to anything that resembled what could occur a natural evolution. In fact, I had biostatisticians at one of our national labs calculate the odds of this evolving in nature. And it was like one in 13 million, and then they later revised it to about one and 13 billion. So you know, to say this came out of a zoonotic situation is sort of ridiculous.”
