Lancet viral origins report

The Lancet Commission on lessons for the future from the
COVID-19 pandemic, 14th September 2022

Viral origins

The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2 remains unknown.

There are two leading hypotheses:

that the virus emerged as a zoonotic spillover from wildlife or a farm animal,

possibly through a wet market,

in a location that is still undetermined;

or that the virus emerged from a research-related incident,

during the field collection of viruses,

or through a laboratory-associated escape.

No independent, transparent, and science-based investigation has been carried out regarding the bioengineering of SARS-like viruses that was underway before the outbreak of COVID-19.

The laboratory notebooks, databases, email records, and samples of institutions involved in such research have not been made available to independent researchers.

Independent researchers have not yet investigated the US laboratories engaged in the laboratory manipulation of SARS-CoV-like viruses,

nor have they investigated the details of the laboratory research that had been underway in Wuhan.

US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has resisted disclosing details of the research on SARS-CoV-related viruses that it had been supporting,

providing extensively redacted information only as required by Freedom of Information Act lawsuits.

In brief, there are many potential proximal origins of SARS-CoV-2, but there is still a shortfall of independent, scientific, and collaborative work on the issue.

The search for the origins of the virus requires unbiased, independent, transparent, and rigorous work by international teams in the fields of virology, epidemiology, bioinformatics,

and other related fields, and supported by all governments.

In the absence of an unbiased, independent, and rigorous search for a natural origin by a multidisciplinary team of experts alongside an unbiased, independent, and rigorous investigation of the research-related hypotheses,

the public’s trust in science will be imperilled,

with potentially grave long-term repercussions.

It is therefore crucial to investigate all hypotheses fully,

not only to ascertain the source of the pandemic and to protect against future emerging infectious diseases,

but also to ensure the integrity of science itself.

The perceived lack of transparency to date by leading scientific agencies and laboratories is troubling and needs to be addressed.

Strategies to prevent research-related releases should include stronger international and national oversight of biosafety,

biosecurity, and biorisk management,

including the strict regulation of gain of function research of concern.

When investigating the origins of any novel pathogen,

potential hypotheses should not be prematurely rejected to ensure that time-sensitive data—

such as early case information and laboratory records—are collected.

  1. Anybody hear about the drilling in the bay of Bengal? Scientists reported organic matter they called ooze deep in the ice trapped for roughly 50 thousand years. That was fall of 2019, and they touched the ooze with their hands. You want a 3rd way, there you go.

  2. The NIH under the watch of Anthony fauci were funding gain of function research with covid both in the US and in China.
    Under instructions from the WEF following a nicely timed tabletop “war game” of a covid global pandemic. Anthony fauci’s covid virus was released in China during US military exercises in late 2018.

  3. Thank you, Dr Campbell, for bringing this report to our attention! The authorities ruled out the laboratory-made hypothesis at an early stage, which was difficult to comprehend. Now that the coronavirus has killed so many people, put so many more people in terrible situations and redistributed wealth in a big way, revealing what those labs do is a must for every authority that hosts those laboratories. We want total transparency because this is a live-or-die matter to possibly billions of people!

  4. It is standard operating procedures for labs to exchange 'materials'. So, that should not come as a surprise.

    Someone knows the whole story, ie where the virus came from, whether any bioengineering had been done (gain-of-function engineerinh), and who gave the order to keep the truth under lock-and-key.

    Eminent scientists who have expressed their concerns about the origin and engineering early on have been persecuted.

  5. Unfortunately a number of professors and scientists either tow the line of the money supply, sponsor, or go hungry! The USA/China effect does smell of ways to cull the human race, in the ever changing world of poverty and starvation?

  6. I like to imagine the good doctor as having had a few drinks prior to this video. He seems more breezy and unguarded. I fully support it and wish to see a video with him completely intoxicated (and uncensored) 😆

  7. And unfortunately John, your (now very quiet!) support of the Ivermectin bulldust suggests that you really need to look at yourself first before sounding off on any conspiracy theory that supports your own bias.

  8. This tension between authentic scientists, sincerely seeking to collect all relevant information and give it due consideration to arrive at reasoned conclusions, on the one hand, and unforgivable hacks on the other who are masquerading as scientists hiding essential information for non-scientific (but seemingly quite profitable) reasons while obfuscating the true situation with specious or outright false statements, simultaneously abusing their positions of authority and even political power to eliminate transparency and escape responsibility — this tension is so intense that my clenched jaw feels about to shatter my teeth.
    Thankfully, there are still truly honest and sincere researchers with unblemished moral compass like our dear Dr Campbell in thw world to help us through these depraved times.

  9. we all know that wuhan labs were messing with these pathogens funded by that little turd from the NIH, the same little turd that caused the aids screw up back in the 90's! time justice was had x

  10. There was gain of function research undertaken. An Israeli & a Pakistani scientists, in different labs, found evidence from the Wuhan lab that gain of function of SARS-CoV-2 was being conducted from 2018. They found it because the Chinese scientists changed its name in a paper, which rang alarm bells.

  11. I thought everyone already knew that America was funding gain of function research in the Wuhan lab. That there is paperwork of them asking for money for research for the change in the DNA that Corona virus sars covi 2 has. Apparently the application was rejected why I'm not sure. Reports say the China lab does not have strict enough procedures to do this kind of research. I am taking thing I formation from the Quoth the raven podcast. The conclusion I reach is America started paying this Lab to do this research and China does not have strict enough enforcement of these places to keep them in check.
    The question we will never know the answer to is this an American tactic against China that had further consequences than they planned or was it just greed. I'm my view there should be an urgent review of all labs doing research on monkey pox as if the accidently release monkey pox with gain of function we could all be in trouble.

  12. Ha ha ha man you have cherry picked this article and twisted it!!! Dr Campbell you are part of the misinformation and disinformation influencing groups that are part of what the lancet article is stating!!! Read the article before you follow this…..

  13. The moderna ceo acknowledged that the virus contains a gene sequence they created and put in a cancer fighting vaccine. His team was looking into how it got there.
    There are articles saying could have happened naturally and others saying virtually impossible to have that sequence naturally. Whos right?
    Fauci has said on video "GOF is absolutely necessary in virology."
    While always denying it was going on in the wuhan lab he funded.

  14. Here's a thought experiment. Imagine you have a loaded gun put to your head by someone . The person then asks you this question. Where did the virus come from?' The person then adds, 'Please bear in mind that I already have the answer and if you reply wrongly then I will fire the pistol"
    Would you say A. 'Oh I think a lot of evidence points to The USA or maybe even Italy , it could be either of them but it definitely did not come from China? B.Or scream CHINA CHINA IT CAME FROM BLOODY CHINA!!

  15. We were told one thing, then yet another; but quickly it changed, until something new came along; it was this, then it was that; more of the same, until it was not; I felt "up was down", and "down was up"; what should I do, what should I do. So I looked to the right, then back to the left; but saw the same thing, over and over again; my head spun on this merry-go-round, "what to believe", just made me frown. So dizzy I've been, in circles I've walked, I'm still not clear about what other people talk.

  16. What is baffling is that people still talk about "natural immunity" after getting covid. There is nothing natural about getting a virus that has escaped during a lab leak if that is the case. You would think that people would put more effort into trying to not get this shit after all of this.
