The debate rages on if the global pandemic was started by exposure from a wet-market or from a lab. This scientist thinks that his study has answered that question.
Birger Sørensen, a Norwegian scientist claims that his study of SARS-CoV-2 that was published in the Quarterly Review of Biophysics shows that the virus may not be natural in origin. He says that the “spike protein” that is essentially the key that unlocks entry into human cells appears to be artificially inserted. Further, the study notes that there haven’t been many mutations of the virus which may be an indicator that it was already adapted to humans.
The study from Sørensen and British professor Angus Dalgleish show that the coronavirus’s spike protein contains sequences that appear to be artificially inserted.
They also highlight the lack of mutation since its discovery, which suggests it was already fully adapted to humans. The study goes on to explain the rationale for the development of Biovacc-19, a candidate vaccine for COVID-19 that is now in advanced pre-clinical development.
For months the government of China has denied that the outbreak of a novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China–which had a top-level virology institute that had been researching bat coronaviruses for years–was just a funny coincidence.
Except…the virus sequence that Sørensen used was released by Chinese scientists.
“The inserted sequences should never have been published. Had it been today, it would never have happened. It was a big mistake the Chinese made. The inserted sequences have a functionality that we describe. We explain why they are essential. But the Chinese pointed to them first,” Sørensen told NRK, a Norwegian news organization.
According to Sørensen, it was Chinese scientists that first released the sequences that the British-Norwegian study later claimed to have been unnatural in origin. He claims that China has since put a lid on other such studies.
The conclusion from Sørensen’s study that the virus may have come from a lab is one that intelligence agencies in the United States as well as internationally have believed to be true for some time.
Sørensen said, “When we technically describe the virus, we see that it has not come about in a natural development. It’s done by Americans and Chinese, as part of what’s called “gain of function” studies. It is done all over the world. You say you don’t, but it happens all the time in advanced labs.”
The former head of MI6 doesn’t think that the virus was let out deliberately, but does believe that it isn’t of “natural” origin but instead began in a lab.
Sir Dearlove, who was head of MI6 from 1999 to 2004, told the Daily Telegraph that the research shows that the pandemic that paralyzes the world may have started in a lab.
He suggested that a biosecurity failure might have led to the virus escaping during an experiment with bat coronaviruses. Dearlove added that he thought it unlikely to have been released deliberately, but that China had clearly tried to cover up the release.
This is consistent with diplomatic cables in 2018 warning of the lack of security at the Wuhan virology lab.
Australia, in particular, has been pushing to discover the origin of the novel coronavirus. Researchers there also say that the virus is so well-adapted to infect humans that the idea that it could have been created in a lab cannot be ignored.
Coronavirus is so ‘perfectly adapted’ to infect humans that the possibility it was made in a Chinese lab can’t be ignored, Australian vaccine researchers conclude.
Professor Nikolai Petrovsky said the virus was better at attaching itself to human cells than to any other animal, explaining why it has infected five million people.
The vaccine expert warned the investigation into where COVID-19 started, as proposed by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, was as a result urgently needed and should have begun months ago.

Some think that this is just a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory and that it doesn’t really matter–but it isn’t and it does.
If the Chinese Communist Party was manipulating coronaviruses to make them more virulent to humans, what else are they doing? Even if it was to research possible vaccines, the danger of a possible outbreak is too great to take that risk. Especially in a communist country that has been known to take shortcuts, even when it comes to a global pandemic. Despite trying to “crack down” on substandard masks, more useless Chinese-made masks were sent out.
We already knew that the lab in Wuhan had security concerns, why should we trust the Chinese Communist Party on this? They’re currently lying about their coronavirus death toll.
