In early 2020, reports began circulating that the COVID virus may have leaked out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Communist China’s level 4 virus lab located in Wuhan.
The lab was studying both bats and the COVID virus, and it was scientists at the South China University of Technology in Hong Kong who first suggested the possibility. There were also suggestions that the lab was manipulating the COVID virus DNA. READ: Did coronavirus originate in Chinese government laboratory? Scientists believe killer disease may have begun in research facility 300 yards from the Wuhan wet fish market:
Shortly after the report was released, 27 scientists came out in defence of the Wuhan lab, stating in a letter in a medical journal, The Lancet, that these allegations were nothing but conspiracy theories.
Of course, the mainstream media began broadcasting this news, which initially curtailed any investigation into this theory.
However, the Daily Mail is now alleging that 26 of the scientists who signed the letter have links to the Wuhan lab, which is now causing some to question their impartiality.
The Daily Mail writes:
However, an investigation by The Daily Telegraph newspaper into the signatories has found that 26 of the 27 had some link to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where the leak was suspected – calling into question their impartiality.
Signatories include Dr Peter Daszak, the British president of EcoHealth Alliance, which funnelled money into controversial research at a Wuhan Institute of Virology, and UK Government scientific adviser Sir Jeremy Farrar.
Only one – Dr Ronald Corley, a microbiology expert from Boston University – has been found to have no links back to funders or researchers at the Wuhan institute.
According to the Daily Mail, several scientists who initially signed the letter have since changed their minds and are calling for further investigation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
