Waking Up to the Truth About the Wuhan Biolab
In 2017, after years of searching in caves, a team of scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology found the source of SARS in the bodies of horseshoe bats.
They began studying – and manipulating -- the deadly and risky bat coronavirus in their high-containment laboratory, which in 2015 had become China’s first biolab to achieve the highest level of international bioresearch safety (known as BSL-4).
The trouble was, the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s biolab was a pandemic waiting to get started.
In 2018 a group of U.S. diplomats and scientists who visited the lab told the Trump administration that its staff was not properly trained and was not following the protocols to safely operate a level 4 biolab.
The White House was actually warned that the Wuhan lab’s “work on bat coronaviruses and their potential human transmission represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic.”
Biden appears to be catching up to the reality of China’s third-rate biolabs now, but he’s always known better.
It was the Obama administration that in 2015 helped China get the international OK it needed to raise the Wuhan lab’s rating from level 3 to 4.
By getting a higher accreditation, the biolab was allowed to handle the deadliest, riskiest viruses from anywhere in the world.
It also gave it the ability to do the testing and manipulation of coronaviruses that gave it the potential to become a biological weapons facility.
But don’t blame Obama, Biden or Dr. Fauci for endorsing the Wuhan biolab’s upgrade. The whole world signed off on it.
