Lab leak latest report

NIH cancels Wuhan funding

SAGO, came together last year after widespread criticism of a joint WHO-China investigation

Lab-leak theory as ‘extremely unlikely’

China via frozen fish

WHO covid origins report

Members of the group from Brazil, China and Russia

objected to the calls for further investigation into the “lab leak” theory

WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

sent two letters,….. and further information into the laboratory hypotheses

SAGO was not provided any information related to studies conducted evaluating the laboratory hypotheses as a possible introduction into the human population.

The possibility of a breach in biosafety or biosecurity measures

possibility of novel pathogens escaping into the human population due to a breach … in a laboratory

this has unfortunately happened with other pathogens

are still lacking in most low- and middle- income countries.

Need for identification

gain of function

dual use research of concern

At the present time

available epidemiological and sequencing data,

suggest ancestral strains to SARS-CoV-2 have a zoonotic origin,

closest genetically related viruses, beta coronaviruses, identified in Rhinolophus bats

China in 2013, (96.1%)

Laos in 2020 (96.8%)

“At this point, the strongest evidence is still around zoonotic transmission,”

Marietjie Venter, chair of the WHO team, virologist University of Pretoria

However, the precursor viruses that have been identified in bats are definitely not close enough to be the virus that spilled over into humans

Humans and chimps, 98.9%

Bonobos 98.7%

Human to human 99.9%

human DNA in a banana, about 60%


so far neither the virus progenitors,

nor the natural/intermediate hosts,

or spill-over event to humans,

have been identified

Huanan seafood market in Wuhan played an important role early in the amplification

Scientific advisory group for the origins of novel pathogens (SAGO)

first preliminary report from the

to WHO

represents work that is ongoing and not yet complete.

The work of the SAGO should be read as a work in progress.

global framework to study emerging and re-emerging pathogens of pandemic potential

offers preliminary recommendations to advance our understanding of the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 into the human population

notes that there are key pieces of data that are not yet available

Further studies, follow up on several gaps in our knowledge

yet to be determined where the initial spill over event(s) occurred

Need to examine environmental samples collected from specific stalls and drains at the market in January 2020

Studies to identify possible animal sources from which the environmental contamination could have originated from have not been completed.

Clinical history and seroprevalence in humans and animals from the source farms of animals sold at Wuhan markets.

Verification analyses of human samples collected through national surveillance programs,
during the months prior to December 2019

Genetic studies of coronaviruses in wildlife species,

The SAGO notes

No new lab leak information

recommends further investigations into this and all other possible pathways.

The SAGO will remain open to any and all scientific evidence that becomes available,

to allow for comprehensive testing of all reasonable hypotheses.

  1. Do you expect them to “out” Lord Fauci? Everyone talks about this like they were doing a risky hobby by themselves whereas we have the receipts showing it was the US doing risky stuff under the direction of Lord Fauci who rented a out a lab in China.

  2. WHO, the CCP backed clowns who will soon be dictating health policies for the entire world with strong arm backing from the UN and the WEF directing the entire farce.

  3. It doesn't matter to me whether or not the virus was originally found in an animal or actually created from scratch in a lab, what concerns me is that it was trained to become more contagious. This kind of research makes bio-weaponry available to anyone who knows where to look. This is what makes me believe in a pLandemic, amongst all the other political and economic factors surrounding it.

  4. This report made me feel 60% bananas. China is too disorganized/censored to give us a solid answer and I fear we may have missed the boat on any real opportunity to find out. Totalitarian politics tends to derail scientific methodology.

  5. WHO has no credibility left. As for China, they had none to begin with. As for NIH stopping funding. Doubt that. Back doors thru Gates, et al, are probably still going on. Probably coming from Fauci (NIAID) thru back door.
    No, lab leaks happen regularly there. Wuhan Lab is known for 'leaks', sloppiness. Agree, not good 'evidence.' There were those warnings from a doctor in Wuhan Lab that warned there were leaks. Now that short video has just vanished, and so did the Chinese doctor.

  6. And, Justin Bieber's facial paralysis is possibly result of C-19 vaccine or booster…known to active Herpes zoster oticus virus causing shingles, Bell's Palsy, & Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. And, all the the post-vaccine Tinnitus is also likely related & interconnected as well…

  7. So the 2 possible events which created a pandemic were.
    A bat with virus flew out of a cave. Then found itself at the Wuhan wet market. Where it somehow passed the virus to a dead or alive pangolin creating the first species jump moment. A person bought the pangolin and ate it, creating the second species jump moment. Person became infected by virus and passed it throughout their community.
    Or, scientists entered a bat cave and retrieved bats to study potential viruses which might infect people. The bats were studied in the Wuhan lab and gain of function applied to bat DNA to transfer infection to human cells to create a vaccine. A mistake in the lab infected a scientist, who spread the virus to their family and knowingly kept quiet due to severe consequences.
    To anybody who believes the first hypothesis, I have a bridge to sell.

  8. Thanks as always for the talk.
    And much appreciated that you had your flashlight or I'd never have found my keys. Thanks for the bananas. However they're now complaining that they have any genetic similarities with "those silly humans".

  9. Seems blindingly obvious to me that the USA''s NIH is responsible for this pandemic via its funding of ludicrous research… the concern being, not the outcome of this or any report into sc2, but what else have they been doing… A cull is a cull.
