Sky News Australia: One of "Greatest Coverups World Has Ever Seen"

As usual, Americans must look overseas for real news.  Sky News Australia called the purported leak of Covid-19 from the Wuhan virology lab one of the "greatest coverups the world has ever seen" Monday. Sky News obtained video that claims to show bats in the lab in 2017 when it was reported there were no bats. 






Sky News published a brief synopsis of the video on its Youtube channel: 

The Wuhan Institute of Virology kept live bats in cages, new footage from inside the facility has revealed, disproving denials from World Health Organization investigators who claimed the suggestion was a “conspiracy”.

An official Chinese Academy of Sciences video to mark the launch of the new biosafety level 4 laboratory in May 2017 speaks about the security precautions that are in place if “an accident” occurs and reveals there had been “intense clashes” with the French Government during the construction of the laboratory.

 The video shows bats being held in a cage at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, along with vision of a scientist feeding a bat with a worm. 

 The 10 minute video is titled “The construction and research team of Wuhan P4 laboratory of Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences” and features interviews with its leading scientists. 

 The World Health Organisation report investigating the origin of the pandemic failed to mention that any bats had been kept at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and only its annex referred to animals being housed there. 

 “The animal room in the P4 facility can handle a variety of species, including primate work with SARS-CoV-2,” it states. 

 A member of the World Health Organization team investigating the origin of the pandemic in Wuhan, zoologist Peter Daszak said it was a conspiracy to suggest bats were held at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

 In one tweet dated December, 2020 he said: “No BATS were sent to Wuhan lab for genetic analysis of viruses collected in the field. That’s not how this science works. We collect bat samples, send them to the lab. We RELEASE bats where we catch them!” 

 In another tweet, dated December 11, 2020, he said: “This is a widely circulated conspiracy theory. This piece describes work I’m the lead on and labs I’ve collaborated with for 15 years. They DO NOT have live or dead bats in them. There is no evidence anywhere that this happened. It’s an error I hope will be corrected.”

 This month, Daszak appeared to retract his earlier denials and admitted the Wuhan Institute of Virology may have housed bats but admitted he had not asked them.

 The Chinese Academy of Sciences video was discovered by researchers investigating the origin of the pandemic who call themselves DRASTIC. 

 Digital archivist “Jesse” found the Chinese Academy of Sciences Video while the group's co-ordinator, who goes by a pseudonym of “Billy Bostickson” for safety reasons, has long complained evidence bats were housed in the Wuhan laboratories. 

The video forms part of the investigation for the book “What Really Happened in Wuhan” which is available for pre-order at Amazon and Booktopia. Mr Daszak has not responded to requests for comment.

Dr. Peter Daszak.  NIH money went to his non-profit organization, Ecohealth.  Ecohealth in turn provided $826,277 to the Wuhan lab although the funds were a small share of the lab's budget.   Dr. Daszak corralled other scientists and published the highly influential Lancet essay last year that squelched all debate on the virus's origin for quite some time. It was Dr.  Daszak who wormed his way onto the WHO investigative team and directed it away from investigating a lab-leak theory.   The good doctor might be about to find out how expendable he really is. 

This is a pretty good news story.  The assertions made might be proven to be wrong but this is what journalists are supposed to do. Investigate, report, dig some more, report some more.

Democrats win again and save Mississippians from drastic cuts to their health care options.
Pre existing conditions cannot be used to deny coverages.

Mississippi’s 60% will be “angry” that the ACA stands…all the while reaping some of its benefits. Medicaid should be expanded to allow full benefits of law to be implemented.

But the troll farm owner now wants to talk about the origins of a virus which the troll farm owner said never existed, was the flu, was a hoax, and wasn’t dangerous…..while it killed 600,000 Americans

The dystopian bent of this troll farm is really hard to fathom.

Oh…and Trump lost the election and won’t be reinstated in August people…..

Go back to work

the aussies also mandated masks and lockdowns and pretty much eliminated covid-19 outbreaks and the country only missed a beat or much different there than here.

the news story seems credible.

I watched the video.Journalists should investigate and report the facts. This report includes "claims" by an anonymous source trying to sell a book on Amazon. And Sky News is trying to sell controversy to increase views. I didn't see any real evidence.

Why are you so obsessed with this? No links to reporting that SARS-CoV-2 was in the US before Christmas 2019?

11:32, this website is mostly read by OANN viewers. See comments on just about any post. They could give a shit about “real evidence.”

11:07: You lying scumbag and that is putting it mildly.

SHOW where I said or wrote the virus was a hoax. Prove it.

March 18, 2020, I subbed for Kim Wade and for two hours I said over and over how serious and deadly this virus was. Rene Shakespeare was on the air with me.

I posted the Joe Rogan interview with Dr. Osterholm that spelled out how the virus operated. Other articles and videos were posted on the same subject. Most of the Health Department press conferences were covered, recorded, and posted on this website. Daily totals were posted for quite some time. This website treated the virus as a serious public health matter.

You're just lying to stir crap up.

Per Jon Stewart's diatribe on Colbert, the burden of proof should be with the laboratory. Everything so far appears to be a smoke screen.

Wonder when the next lock down occurs with this so called end of mankind disease. I'm still not convinced that the dreaded Covid actually killed 600K Americans and maybe 4 Million worldwide. "The Spanish flu, was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic caused by the H1N1 influenza A virus. Lasting from February 1918 to April 1920, it infected 500 million people – about a third of the world's population at the time – in four successive waves". No one ever put out a formal definition of the so called related death reasoning for Covid 19. I've read many different definitions from many different sources. Politicized science is not science but only politics. Many many sheep out there.

The average person crowing about the Wuhan lab has been wrong about at least a dozen major COVID-related issues in the last year.

To be fair, COVID lockdown enthusiasts also have been wrong too, but less frequently.

In either case, the frustrating thing is that they'll take literally anything suggesting they may have been partly right about one aspect of COVID as evidence that their entire worldview is right and the other side is populated entirely by charlatans and fools.

You cannot have a discourse, particularly on something as complex as this, when people prioritize pulling for their partisan team above intellectual honesty, and where there is no good faith ability to admit error.

Shocking! Labs actually have lab animals?!

The Chinese aren't an open society?!

We can't know if the lab animal brought the virus into the lab or the virus existed in the lab or even for sure, that it was a bat. Perhaps, a lab person was sick after being careless and shopped at the Wuhan market before being symptomatic but contagious.

Why is this a divisive issue. The milk is spilt. All we can do is try to find the facts to prevent another disaster.

Some of us always knew that anything said by anybody about the origin was at best, " an educated guess" and worse, speculation by idiots who see conspiracies where ordinary mistakes combined with a government or human who can't own a mistake and makes everything worse is the usual explanation.

How y'all managed to get through life without noticing humans don't like to admit mistakes and make excuses astounds me.

Not the stuff of conspiracies...the stuff of screw ups.

Calm Down said...

The lab is the source. The only question is when the leak/release occurred. In either case, China deliberately built the hype to convince the world that lockdowns of the population was the answer.

The real scandal is that the US was funding the research, knowing how dangerous it is.

StarRider said...

My my my...the question is what do we do about this if it turns out to be true?

The Australian news agencies ( left or right) have always been famous for reporting only facts.

Plus ... they don't waste 15 minutes every half hour talking about goofy stuff such as the average speed from Brandon to the "stack" during the morning commute.

"We" can do nothing about it. Those who are able to do something about it, will preen like a peacock, pontificate to no end, and flock to the nearest camera, like the attention whores they are. All the while doing "nothing". As an aside, my browser language tool says that, whores, maybe offensive, I certainly hope so. That's the reason it's written that way. As another aside, if there are any "real" street walkers, working girls, "ladies" of the evening, or Housewives of ______ fill in the blank, reading this blog, you hard workers know to whom I speak, I humbly, sincerely, apologize for associating your "honest" profession with the slimy business of politics. Anyway, "we" can do nothing.

Wow! The paid trolls must get automatic notifications, whenever someone discusses Sky News on the Internet. They seem to be outnumbering real people, in the comments here. If someone is paying these creeps to attempt to discredit Sky News, that's all the verification I need. Sky News must be pretty great, and telling the TRUTH.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
