Emails Show Top Scientists Knew COVID-19 Likely Came From a Lab But Lied to the Masses to Protect China

Released emails have revealed that top scientists understood that COVID-19 emanated from a laboratory but lied to the public because they wanted to protect the reputation of their Chinese masters.

Reporting from The Express has shown that top scientists, such as Sir Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust, said that the COVID lab-leak hypothesis was “a likely explanation” for the genesis of the global pandemic.

Additionally, the email addressed to Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) said that scientists “accidentally created a virus primed for rapid transmission between humans.”

Farrar justified suppressing the truth because he wrote that “further debate would do unnecessary harm to science in general and science in China in particular.” Dr. Collins, who led the NIH at the time, said that telling the truth to the public would harm “international harmony.”
