Journals Published ‘Flawed’ Studies on COVID Origin, Scientist Says
U.S. Right to Know says papers lack sufficiently reliable data, independently verifiable data sets and transparent peer review and editorial process.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019, scientists have searched for clues about what led to the emergence of its causative agent, the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Uncovering the source of SARS-CoV-2 could be crucial for preventing future outbreaks.
A series of four high profile studies published earlier this year provided scientific credence to the hypothesis that SARS-CoV-2 originated in bats and then jumped to humans through a type of anteater called a pangolin — among the world’s most trafficked wild animals. While that specific theory involving pangolins has been largely discounted, the four studies known as the “pangolin papers” continue to provide support for the notion that coronaviruses closely related to SARS-CoV-2 circulate in the wild, meaning the SARS-CoV-2 that caused COVID-19 probably comes from a wild animal source.

Great reminder that it is much harder to push a snowball up the hill after it’s been allowed to roll down.
In short, because of the major initial push for a “zoonotic” theory, the very real possibility of lab origination has been thwarted, but this Gillam states that all of the papers supporting this initial theory are flawed due to: unreliable data, the lack of independently verifiable data sets, and lack of transparent peer review and editorial process.
This initial focus on a wild animal source stunted investigations into the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where they have genetically manipulated and stored coronaviruses for a long time.
The article then goes through the serious problems with the studies. It also mentions the “silence of the journals” regarding ongoing investigations. But we’ve heard about that before: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/06/12/former-french-health-minister-blows-whistle-criminal-pressure-from-bigpharma-on-publications-means-theres-no-longer-any-real-science/
On Nov. 5, U.S. Right to Know filed a lawsuit against the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for violating provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., seeks correspondence with or about organizations such as the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the EcoHealth Alliance, which partnered with and funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Sadly, this is all very reminiscent of the Lyme/MSIDS debacle where it’s quite probable Borrelia burgdorferi and/or other pathogens have been tweaked in a lab for biowarfare purposes: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/08/04/lyme-disease-amendment-passes-house-tells-dod-ig-to-investigate-the-bioweaponization-of-ticks/
‘Authorities’ probably don’t feel they are lying when they state these things are of ‘natural’ origin because originally they are, but then they are ‘enhanced’ in a lab to be more difficult to find, more virulent, and more difficult to treat. The very definition of bioweaponization:
