Coronavirus: pathogen could have been spreading in humans for years, study says

Stephen Chen in Beijing

  • Virus may have jumped from animal to humans long before the first detection in Wuhan, according to research by an international team of scientists
  • Findings significantly reduce the possibility of the virus having a laboratory origin, director of the US National Institute of Health says (See link for article)



Important quote:

The study, found here: is also a topic of Lyme advocate Carl Tuttle’s recent post titled, “The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2”:

Tuttle’s focus is on an article debunking the Nature article claiming COVID-19 definitely wasn’t from a lab.  Article found here:  (You can also sign a petition in the link asking for a moratorium on all dual-use gain-of-function research.)

The author debunking the Nature article asserts COVID-19 either –

  • “spontaneously mutated and jumped to humans at a wet market or deep in some random bat cave which just so happened to be 20 miles from China’s only BSL-4 virology lab, a virus with an unusually slippery never-before-seen genome that’s evading zoological classification….”


  • “Chinese scientists failed to follow correct sanitation protocols…, something that had been anticipated since the opening of the BSL-4 lab and has happened at least four times previously, and accidentally released this bio-engineered Wuhan Strain – likely created by scientists researching immunotherapy regimes against bat coronaviruses, who’ve already demonstrated the ability to perform every step necessary to bio-engineer the Wuhan Strain COVID-19 – into their population, and now the world....this virus appears to have been bio-engineered at the spike-protein genes which was already done at UNC to make an extraordinarily virulent coronavirus. Chinese efforts to prevent the full story about what’s going on from getting out are because they want the scales to be even since they’re now facing a severe pandemic and depopulation event. No facts point against this conclusion.  

Supporting the second case are Chinese researchers:

“In summary, somebody was entangled with the evolution of 2019-nCoV coronavirus. In addition to origins of natural recombination and intermediate host, the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan. Safety level may need to be reinforced in high risk biohazardous laboratories. Regulations may be taken to relocate these laboratories far away from city center and other densely populated places.

Great video with Dr. Mikovitz explaining Coronavirus:  (She explains numerous issues raised in this article)

Circling back to the Nature article, one of the authors, Ian Lipkin, is known as “The Virus Hunter.”  He’s currently involved in a sex discrimination lawsuit alleging concerning issues that should cause us to question his credibility: (takes credit for others’ work, diverts and misuses funds which delays publication of others’ work, undermines relationships with a colleague’s collaborators and donors, wrongly adds himself as principle investigator to grants, and sex discrimination):  

Also, Lipkin, a staunch critic of Dr. Andrew Wakefield wrote this paper titled, “Anti-Vaccination Lunacy Won’t Stop”:

Any researcher biased enough to call those who dare to question vaccine safety lunatics has tipped his hand that he is not at all open to new scientific findings

Here, you can read an astute criticism of Lipkin’s CDC-AAP sponsored report, “Lack of Association between Measles Virus Vaccine and Autism with Enteropathy: A Case-Control Study,” and that it actually in the end validated Andrew Wakefield’s findings:

Please also remember that it was none other than NIH’s AIDS czar, Anthony Fauci, who asked his friend Ian Lipkin to settle the claim by microbiologist Judy Mikovitz on whether XMRV is behind chronic fatigue syndrome.  Lipkin blamed a man-made contaminant, despite Lo and Alter’s paper showing 6.8 percent of healthy controls were positive for MLV-related infection:

For the background

Similarly to how research for Alzheimer’s was hijacked for decades by the amyloid beta issue, ME/CHS research studying viruses was hijacked by Lipkin, despite this 2019 article stating that although XMRV has not been proven yet to cause CFS, it has not been ruled out, and that results of research shows that XMRV is a candidate for causing human disease: 

Lipkin is directly involved with research involving cancer, Autism, and vaccines – hot topics tightly controlled by powers that have vested interests.
Hopefully it is clear from the numerous posts on this website that those who depart from the controlled narrative are skewered alive.

But, Lipkin never departs from the accepted narrative.

Tuttle has a valid point not trusting authorities on COVID-19 that have also been involved in a

“thirty-year deception on the American public that Lyme is a simple nuisance disease through its network of paid academics (now defendants in a racketeering lawsuit) [2] how much trust should we lend to your work Dr. Lipkin?”

If you haven’t signed Tuttle’s petition, please do so:

There is continued resistance by government agencies to acknowledge and provide information pertaining to chronic Lyme disease on their websites and in their programs despite Lyme disease being around 45 years. They also control all testing and suppress any other lab doing Lyme/MSIDS testing.
