In a shocking revelation, The Daily Telegraph report has revealed that barring one all the signatories of the Lancet letter, which dismissed Wuhan lab leak theory, have links with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology is the epicentre of this controversy as new findings have revealed that the Covid-19 virus might have leaked from the Wuhan Institute.
Celebrated medical journal, The Lancet, published an article by 27 scientists in February last year claiming the Wuhan Lab leak theory was a conspiracy theory.
This dismissal buried the Wuhan lab leak theory. Although they never explained how they reached the conclusion in about three months.
The presence of Covid-19 virus was reported in November/December 2019 and the Lancet article was published in early February 2020.
Now, there is ample evidence to suggest the virus might have leaked from the Wuhan institute.
The WHO initiated a probe into the origin of the virus but China did not cooperate. As a result, the probe remained inconclusive.
Peter Daszak’s organization, the US-based EcoHealth Alliance, funnelled $3.4 million in grants from the National Institute of Health to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study bat coronaviruses between 2014 and 2019.
Peter Daszak was one of the prominent signatories of the Lancet article.
Although The Lancet later published an addendum about the link of Peter Daszak with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, it has not yet published any clarification regarding the link of other authors of the article.
