Classified documents prove SARS-CoV-2 came from a lab – and the FBI has known about this since March 2020

Classified documents published by a government transparency watchdog in the United States have found strong evidence that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), “never existed in the natural world.” Worse yet, it appears that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has known about this since March 2020.

The documents were obtained by U.S. Right to Know (USRTK) showing U.S. scientists were planning to work with scientists from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) to develop novel coronaviruses may “explain why no one has been able to find the SARS2 virus infesting a colony of bats,” according to Nicholas Wade, former science editor for the New York Times.

The documents “provide a recipe for assembling SARS-type viruses from six synthetic pieces of DNA designed to be a consensus sequence – the genetically most infectious form – of viruses related to SARS1, the bat virus that caused the minor epidemic of 2002,” Wade noted. “Prior independent evidence already pointed to SARS2 having just such a six-section structure.”

The EcoHealth Alliance submitted the DEFUSE (Defusing the Threat of Bat-Borne Corona Viruses) proposal to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, proposing experiments to increase the transmissibility of bat coronaviruses to humans. The application included a request for a $14 million grant to conduct this research.

“The grant proposed to ‘introduce appropriate human-specific cleavage sites’ into SARS-related viruses, a procedure that could have led to the creation of SARS2, with its distinctive furin cleavage site, depending on the starting virus used for the manipulation,” Wade wrote.

However, the DEFUSE proposal concealed plans to conduct this research at the WIV, the USRTK documents revealed, and also left out the name of a Chinese researcher – Shi Zhengli, sometimes referred to as the “Bat Lady” – who was involved with this research.

“The new drafts show the authors planned to synthesize eight to 16 strains of SARS-type bat viruses, selected for their likely ability to infect human cells,” Wade said, “to make a vaccine to immunize bats in regions that military troops might have to enter.”

Haslam noted that while “U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) vaccine approval for humans takes 15-20 years,” for research conducted on animals, the approval period is “just two to five years.” He described this as a “bureaucratic loophole” that “created a huge incentive for live bat research.”

There were close similarities between SARS-CoV-2 and the DEFUSE proposal and contradict virologists who claim COVID-19 developed naturally, Wade said.

“The genome of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, matches the viruses described in the research proposal,” USRTK wrote, while according to Wade, “When SARS2 first appeared in the world, it had all the unique properties that would be expected of a virus made according to the DEFUSE recipe.”

“Instead of slowly evolving the ability to attack human cells, as natural viruses must do when they jump from animals to humans, SARS2 was immediately infectious to people, possibly because it had already been adapted in humanized laboratory mice to the human cell receptor,” Wade added.

The FBI has known about SARS-CoV-2’s origins since March 2020

Further reports, including investigations from reporters Michael Shellenberger and Alex Gutentag, noted that the FBI received credible intelligence that SARS-CoV-2 was not a naturally occurring virus and that it had leaked from the WIV since at least March 2020.

According to Shellenberger and Gutentag, information from multiple sources revealed that a “Chinese national from Wuhan, working as a confidential human source for the FBI, told their handler at the FBI’s Chinese Intelligence Squad.”

“[COVID-19] didn’t have anything to do with the wet market or the bat soup story they were going with,” the sources told the FBI, referring to the supposed natural origins of COVID-19.

“The fact that the FBI knew COVID came from a lab at least as far back as March 2020 raises questions about why other U.S. government officials, including Anthony Fauci and researchers he had funded, continued to insist that a lab leak was implausible for several more years,” wrote Shellenberger and Gutentag.
