“The Chinese have engaged in a massive cover-up that is going on until this day, involving destroying samples, hiding records, placing a universal gag order on Chinese scientists and imprisoning Chinese citizen journalists asking the most basic questions.”
“The more that China stonewalls, the more suspicious that it looks,” stated Metzl.
There are a number of important things that Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Peter Daszak and the Chinese Communist Party have in common. They all helped finance the Wuhan Institute of Virology. They all supported the lab’s gain-of-function coronavirus research. They were consulted on the progress of this unethical research and thought the ongoing experiments were worth the risk of a potential pandemic. These entities trusted one another for many years, while conducting the most unethical research that exploits human immune systems. These entities have also thanked one another privately and praised one another publicly during a global health crisis -- a pandemic for which they could all be culpable.
For over a year, they all lied about the lab origin of SARS-CoV-2, deflecting from their responsibilities, to ultimately downplay their role in the matter. Just as Fauci perjured himself in front of the US Senate, China has stonewalled international investigation into the lab’s gain-of-function coronavirus experiments and vaccine/virus surveillance research. Just as Daszak brags about creating lethal coronaviruses, so does China brag about continuing gain-of-function research and building more labs for virus engineering.
Metzl said China pushed the World Health Organization away in the early days of the pandemic and rejected reporters, giving the CCP the time they needed to destroy evidence and records. Evidence shows that mistakes were made in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. On the heels of the original outbreak in Wuhan, lab workers fell severely ill with a new SARS-like illness. China continues to conceal the blood work from these lab workers. Yuan Zhiming, the director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s BSL-4 lab, wrote in 2019 that maintenance at the Wuhan Institute of Virology was “generally neglected.” “Several high-level BSLs have insufficient operational funds for routine yet vital processes,” Zhiming confirmed. According to former FDA head Scott Gottlieb, the last six known outbreaks of SARS-1 have been out of their BSL labs, and China was not forthcoming about these leaks.
Metzl pointed out that Dr. Daszak is part of the coverup. In the early days of the outbreak, Daszak sought to control the narrative by coercing his colleagues at EcoHealth Alliance and the Wellcome Trust to rule out the lab leak theory completely. As a fellow investigator for the WHO, Daszak was able to coerce twenty-seven scientists to sign a letter dismissing the lab leak theory before any scientific investigation could have occurred. Published in the Lancet, that letter praised the Chinese and called anyone who disagreed with him a “conspiracy theorist.”
“By labeling anyone with different views a conspiracy theorist, the Lancet letter was the worst form of bullying in full contravention of the scientific method,” Metzl said.
Daszak also claimed “no competing interests” in the infamous letter, yet he was the one who previously bragged about making coronaviruses more lethal, while funding these unethical experiments at the Wuhan lab and collaborating with the CCP.
“We can’t give China a veto over whether or not we investigate the world’s worst pandemic in a century and then do everything we can to make everybody safe,” Metzl warned.
