Despite what the Fauci-worshippers say, there is far more evidence that SARS-CoV-2 came from a lab and did not originate in nature.

Researchers in Hungary found traces of what appears to be an early variant of the “novel coronavirus” in soil samples that were sent to them.

Along with the “early COVID-19” samples, researchers also found genetic material from Chinese hamsters and monkeys suggesting that the virus was being examined in the lab.

From the Daily Mail:

Scientists in Hungary found traces of a unique variant of coronavirus while examining DNA from soil from Antarctica that had been sent to the firm Sangon Biotech in Shanghai.

The researchers also found genetic material from Chinese hamsters and green monkeys, which may suggest the virus was being examined in a lab, using either the animals themselves or their cells.

Some of those who support the lab leak theory suggest Chinese scientists engineered the virus in a lab to make it more dangerous as part of an experiment, before the virus escaped.

Viscount Ridley, author of Viral: The Search for the Origin of Covid-19, suggested the latest evidence may support the lab leak theory due to the presence of ‘three key [Covid] mutations’ that are characteristic of the earliest sequences of the virus.

The Daily Mail warns that this news should be taken with a grain of salt. The article states that it could simply be contamination that happened in the lab because someone working there had an early version of COVID and was handling the samples.

Ok, fair enough.

But how does that explain the animal DNA in the samples?

There is a truckload of evidence that this virus originated in a lab and almost nil that it was of natural origin other than scientists insisting that genetically it’s quite likely.

Despite COVID being able to infect pretty much anything with lungs, there is still no trace of an intermediate host animal that spread the virus from bat to human.

Over 50,000 animals in China have been tested in the desperate search for the “zoonotic carrier” that spread the virus to humans — but the scientists have come up empty-handed.

Meanwhile, we know that the genetically closest match to SARS-CoV-2 was a virus that came from horseshoe bats in China that were being studied at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

And there’s that whole Fauci-approved gain-of-function research grant to EcoHealth Alliance that wasn’t exactly gain-of-function because it was using a novel virus instead of a known one…

And then there’s China’s absolute dogged resistance to cooperate in investigating the origin which is… pretty fishy.

It’s still unclear what the origin of this virus is and we may never know for absolute 100% certainty.

But the actions of the Chinese Communist Party throughout the pandemic certainly appear to be what a government that wants to cover up the origin would do.

They’re still only reporting fewer than 5,000 COVID deaths in two years. Does anyone believe that?
