‘Internet sleuths’ claim to have proof that ‘China created Covid,’ despite US intelligence reporting none — RT World News

Media outlets are promoting a book that could prove China’s creation of the SARS/CoV-2 virus. It is based upon open-source documents. This contradicts what US intelligence told the public.

The content of the book, titled ‘Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19’, was previewed by one of its co-authors, Matt Ridley, in the Daily Mail. According to the tabloid, its authors could provide evidence that Covid-19’s pandemic may have begun as an epidemic. “laboratory leak of a possibly engineered coronavirus”Then, follow by a “cover-up of epic proportions”.

This article was published days after US intelligence had declassified their own analysis of the source of the disease. Report from the US Office of Director of National Intelligence. “internet sleuths”There are many factors that go into the making of this book.

‘Viral’ promises readers “a gripping detective story”This was based upon the discovery of DRASTIC (Decentralised Radical Autonomous Search Team Investigating Covid-19). This group consists of people all over the globe who are trying to find the source of Covid-19 using open-source intelligence (OSINT).

One member is an anonymous person living in India, who goes by the moniker ‘The Seeker’. Indian media described him as a man in his 20s who is “an architect, a filmmaker and a former science teacher.” He said he used “OSINT skills (like advanced google tricks, Boolean search operators etc)”In his quest for truth.

This idea that an amateur computer wizard uses his insane skills to find damning truths out of all the available information online isn’t new. Bellingcat’s Eliot Higgins, for example, was promoted by The New York Times as being suitable to do exactly that with Syria, not because of “any special knowledge of international conflicts or digital data” but due to “the hours he had spent playing video games, which, he said, gave him the idea that any mystery can be cracked.”

Ridley’s retelling of DRASTIC’s work doesn’t seem to offer any new facts about Covid-19 and Chinese research of pathogens. This is the story of their investigation into the “keenest mystery of our lifetime”Sometimes things can take unexpected turns.

Ridley described the research done by scientists at Wuhan Institute of Virology, (WIV), but Ridley also said that they were the ones who did it. “synthesised and altered their DNA to insert specific sequences.”It is possible that these efforts may have created SARSCoV-2, the virus responsible for Covid-19. That virus doesn’t have DNA at all – its genetic code is stored in the form of RNA.

Ridley quotes US intelligence sources saying that “three of the early Covid-19 cases were workers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology”This information was. This was addressed in the ODNI Assessment. The report stated that reports had been made by several laboratory researchers. “symptoms consistent with COVID-19 in autumn 2019 is not diagnostic of the pandemic’s origins.”

The ODNI report actually stresses that the US intelligence community doesn’t believe China had any foreknowledge about Covid-19. Although it does mention that the possibility of a laboratory leak causing the disease is possible, the possibilities presented by the report are much less extreme. The report stated that someone in the laboratory could have contracted the disease from a field trip to collect samples. However, the patient may not be aware of the possibility and brought it back with them. Researchers may have mistakenly handled an unrelated sample in experimentation.

Mail published an essay that pays much attention to so-called “furin cleavage sites”SARS CoV-2 was believed to have an increased ability to infect cells by using spike proteins (FCS). Ridley suggests that the WIV researchers could have artificially added the feature to the virus.

The ODNI assessment found that China didn’t develop SARS-CoV-2 bioweapons and the virus wasn’t likely to have been genetically modified. According to it, academic literature had reported FCS. “have been identified in naturally occurring coronaviruses in the same genetic location as the FCS in SARS-CoV-2,”It is possible that this trait was acquired. “through natural recombination with another virus.”

‘Viral’ will presumably imply that WIV was conducting secret experiments with samples of coronaviruses collected in an abandoned copper mine located in Mojiang County, Yunnan. It is well-known for an incident that occurred in 2012, when six miners fell ill with pneumonia-like symptoms. Three of those workers died. DRASTIC members believe there is a link between these cases and Covid-19. WIV researchers believe that the miners died from a fungal disease.

The mine was visited by WIV scientists several times to obtain samples. Ridley claimed that “we do not know if the visits continued beyond 2015”And “what viruses they might have found between 2016 and 2019.”

That was acknowledged by the co-author. “a natural origin theory still remains plausible and deserving of proper investigation,”Before accusing China that it doesn’t allow, “a full and credible investigation”Covid-19’s origins. DRASTIC is in complete agreement with the ODNI. 

China reacted negatively to the ODNI Report and called it unscientific.
