Everyone should remember the moment when they first heard of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, which had first emerged from China. The main question that everyone wanted to be answered wasn’t complicated at all: Where did the virus come from?
Since the beginning, we have pushed that the “Wuhan Lab Theory” had some truth in it all along even after China quickly said that the virus emerged at one of their largest “wet markets” in Wuhan.
Wuhan also happens to be the home of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, one of the communist nation’s most advanced biological research laboratories.
The World Health Organization investigated the origins of the virus during a month-long-fact-finding mission in China. That investigation concluded it originated in bats and passed to people through an intermediate animal.
But then-President Donald Trump wasn’t convinced. With China offering no proof the virus occurred naturally, Trump repeatedly mused that it came from a lab, either deliberately or accidentally.
That prompted social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to ban any discussion of where SARS-CoV-2 originated (both would later ban Trump altogether from their platforms). No one was allowed to mention that maybe — just maybe — the virus didn’t come from a bat at a wet market and spread across the entire world, killing more than 3.5 million people.
The new interest in the origin of the virus comes amid reports that three researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were hospitalized with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 in November 2019, weeks before China officially announced the emergence of the virus.
Some “journalists” at liberal “news” outlets suddenly are openly admitting that they put the kibosh on the story because of Trump.
ABC News’s Jonathan Karl’s own network ignored the story saying “a lot of people have egg on their face” for dismissing the COVID-19 lab leak theory simply because it came from Trump, saying not everything is false just because “Donald Trump says them.”
“This was an idea that was first put forward by Mike Pompeo, secretary of state, [and] President Donald Trump. And look, some things may be true even if Donald Trump said them. Because Trump was saying so much else, it was just out of control. And because he was — you know — making a frankly racist appeal, talking about ‘Kung Flu’ and the China virus, he put forward this notion … and it was widely dismissed,” Karl said.
