(Natural News) Former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, recently revealed new evidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) was the point of origin for SARS-CoV-2. Pompeo has called for an international investigation into the laboratory, yet China refuses to let anyone investigate the lab.
In the fall of 2019, several laboratory workers from the WIV fell ill with a peculiar set of symptoms that matches the most serious symptoms associated with SARS-CoV-2. This new intel contradicts the public testimony of Shi Zhengli, the senior researcher at the WIV who claimed there was “zero infection” among the laboratory staff. Pompeo is calling Shi Zhengli’s testimony into question and challenging the CCP’s secret gain-of-function research on coronaviruses.

The intel reveals further that the WIV researchers were studying a bat coronavirus that is 96 percent similar to SARS-CoV-2. The researchers were also manipulating “gain of function” properties of these viruses to make them more transmissible and more lethal. This highly unethical research is shrouded in secrecy by the Chinese Communist Party, and this lab in particular is secretly linked to the Chinese military.
Mike Pompeo believes a full investigation is warranted and has called on the World Health Organization to investigate. Pompeo did not charge that the Chinese military released the virus on purpose, because intent would be nearly impossible to prove. Instead, Pompeo believes the virus simply broke containment at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and the matter should be fully investigated, the offending party held accountable. Pompeo did warn that the Wuhan lab is connected to the CCP and has worked on “secret projects with China’s military” in the past. He says that the researchers have not been forthcoming with their work on RaTG13 and other gain-of-function research.
“The WIV has engaged in classified research, including laboratory animal experiments, on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017,” Pompeo warned. Pompeo revealed that WIV researchers were manipulating bat coronaviruses since 2016. These viruses are known as RaTG13 and are 96.2 percent similar to SARS-CoV-2. The researchers obtained the viruses from a cave in the Yunnan Province in 2013, after a respiratory virus caused the death of several miners there.

Will President Joe Biden hold China accountable for unethical bioweapon release?
Even though newly-elected President Joe Biden, plans to rejoin the World Health Organization (WHO) and begin pumping American dollars into the corrupt network; it remains to be seen whether Biden will push for a full investigation into China’s controversial Wuhan lab. In the final week of the Trump Presidency, a research team from WHO arrived in Wuhan, but were stopped by the CCP and blocked from conducting any investigation into the lab. Chinese authorities have instructed the WHO to investigate the “wet market” that they claim is the source of the first cluster of infections. The WHO, led by Tedros Adhanom, will likely do as they are told because the CCP asserts that no investigation will be conducted on the Wuhan lab whatsoever.
Pompeo commented on China’s brazen, dangerous secrecy: “Beijing continues today to withhold vital information that scientists need to protect the world from this deadly virus, and the next one.”
The State Department wrote that accidental infections have occurred before, causing virus outbreaks in China and elsewhere. The 2004 SARS outbreak in Beijing, for example, went on to infect nine people and claimed one life. By the end of 2019, it became all too apparent that a new strain of SARS was infecting people around the world, and the virus exhibited enhanced properties, allowing it to initially attach to lung cells and avoid detection by human immune systems, before succumbing to host adaptation over time.
World leaders must stand up to China.
