In the liturgy of articles written about the Wuhan Institute of Virology, one name continues to tie the whole story together: Dr. Peter Daszak. Daszak, president of the EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit that has been funding viral research around the world for more than 20 years, has been influencing the narrative about the origins of COVID-19 even before much was known. about the virus. As previously reported, Daszak orchestrated the signing of a letter, eventually published in The Lancet, by numerous scientists who allegedly “debunked” the lab leak theory by emphatically stating that the origin of the virus was due to a natural mutation. That letter was drafted in late January 2020 and distributed to numerous scientists via email to request additional signatories and support; however, ironically, less than half of those contacted signed the letter.
MSM and Big Tech then used the Lancet letter as a means of suppressing reports of information coming from China that simply suggested there was evidence of a lab leak, although there was not a single shred of evidence or data to support the conclusion. in that letter.
When the narrative tide began to turn and people began to accept the potential for a lab leak, the Lancet again came to the defense by launching an absolutely ridiculous commission to investigate the origins of COVID-19, headed by none other than Peter Daszak. Of the 12-member panel, six were among the signatories to the original Lancet Letter, and one was a Facebook fact-checker who was hired to reject the lab leak theory. It’s hard to believe they would build a commission with such bias, headed by a man who had been orchestrating an unproven narrative defending the lab before the United States had any COVID-19 cases. With Daszak becoming a central suspect in the potential development of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, he had to step back in his defensive defense on behalf of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, including recusal from the Lancet Origins Commission.
Now another member of the Lancet Commission, Facebook’s Fact-Checker, Dr. Danielle Anderson, has taken on the role of advocate for Wuhan. Over the course of the past week, Anderson found his way to inform the media about the potential for a lab leak. Googling Danielle Anderson provides a list of results showing Anderson opposing the escape theory, which would obviously call into question his impartiality as a member of the COVID-19 Origins Commission.
Half-truths and distorted information have obscured an accurate account of the laboratory’s functions and activities, which were more routine than have been portrayed in the media, he said.
“Not that it was boring, but it was a normal lab that worked the same way as any other high-containment lab,” Anderson said. “What people say is not how it is.”
Interestingly, Anderson is calling the reports on the origins of the virus “half-truths” and “distorted information” considering that the Chinese government went to great lengths to determine what information was available to the public. The chief scientist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zhengli, withheld information from the international community about the genomic makeup of the virus. As previously reported here on RedState, Chinese officials applied for a patent on a COVID-19 vaccine in February 2020. That development was also denied to the international community. Anderson’s defense should be dismissed as partial nonsense.
Additionally, Anderson, who was the last foreign scientist to work at WIV, claims that there were absolutely no Chinese military members there when she was there, which is contradicted by State Department officials who were investigating the origins of the coronavirus. , who say other foreigners Lab scientists saw Chinese scientists wearing military lab coats, as our Jennifer Van Laar reported today.
In fact, anyone at arm’s length from Peter Daszak should be excluded from any oversight or role in investigating the origins of COVID-19. At this point, his influence has been so toxic that nothing related to man can be trusted.
