Wash Po Tried To Bury Bombshell Story About Wuhan Lab, Fortunately It Went Viral

The Washington Post tried to bury a story about the Chinese CDC lab in Wuhan written by Josh Rogin. The article is incredibly sourced and the Post tried to bury it in the “World Opinion” section of their website. The only way you could find it was in the “most shared section” because the article went viral thanks to social media. Rogin also gave an interview about his article on Tuesday and we posted at the bottom. 

Rogin reported on U.S Embassy officials that visited the Chinese research facility in Wuhan several times and the officials sent back warnings to Washington worried that the lab was conducting risky studies on the coronavirus from bats.

There have been reports from two Chinese scientists that in November there was an accident in the lab while researchers were conducted experiments on the coronavirus and bats, one month later an international pandemic started. Last week a Tucker Carlson monologue laid it out below.

In January 2018, the US Embassy in Beijing “repeatedly” sent US science diplomats to the Wuhan Institue of Virology (WIV), in 2015 the lab achieved the highest level of international bioresearch safety. WIV in English announced the visit on March 27, 2018. That visit was deleted last week on the WIV’s website however Rogan reports it still remains on Internet archives

Rogin explains:

What the U.S. officials learned during their visits concerned them so much that they dispatched two diplomatic cables categorized as Sensitive But Unclassified back to Washington. The cables warned about safety and management weaknesses at the WIV lab and proposed more attention and help. The first cable, which I obtained, also warns that the lab’s work on bat coronaviruses and their potential human transmission represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic.

“During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory,” states the Jan. 19, 2018, cable, which was drafted by two officials from the embassy’s environment, science and health sections who met with the WIV scientists. (The State Department declined to comment on this and other details of the story.)

The Chinese researchers at WIV were receiving assistance from the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch and other U.S. organizations, but the Chinese requested additional help. The cables argued that the United States should give the Wuhan lab further support, mainly because its research on bat coronaviruses was important but also dangerous.

But it gets even scarier…

“Most importantly,” the cable states, “the researchers also showed that various SARS-like coronaviruses can interact with ACE2, the human receptor identified for SARS-coronavirus. This finding strongly suggests that SARS-like coronaviruses from bats can be transmitted to humans to cause SARS-like diseases. From a public health perspective, this makes the continued surveillance of SARS-like coronaviruses in bats and study of the animal-human interface critical to future emerging coronavirus outbreak prediction and prevention.”

The research at the facility was designed to hopefully prevent another SARS like pandemic by trying to figure out how it could emerge. Many have denied that the coronavirus came from a lab but they are addressing was the thought that COVID-19 is a bioweapon. It is very possible that researchers from this facility had an accident, the Chinese government tried to cover it up, and here we are all locked up in our homes.

I would strongly encourage you to listen to the monologue from Tucker Carlson (posted above) and click here to read the entire article posted by Josh Rogin; his article was so refreshing, it was so nice to read real journalism.
