    Wuhan Lab Was Genetically Manipulating Deadly Nipah Virus, Expert Testifies at Senate Hearing

    By Cathy He

    August 4, 2022 Updated: August 4, 2022



    A forensic analysis shows that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) was genetically manipulating the Nipah virus, a highly lethal pathogen, in violation of the biological weapons convention, according to an expert who testified at a Senate subcommittee hearing on Aug. 3.

    The finding was another piece of evidence showing that the controversial Wuhan lab was conducting gain-of-function research—experiments that ultimately resulted in the COVID-19 pandemic via a leak from the facility, said Dr. Steven Quay, chief executive officer of Atossa Therapeutics. Gain-of-function research involves enhancing the potency or transmissibility of a virus.

    Quay said he and other scientists conducted an examination of COVID-19 patient specimens from December 2019 sequenced and published by the WIV. Through that analysis, published in a pre-print paper that has not been peer-reviewed, they found 20 unexpected contaminants that they believed were evidence of other research conducted at the lab.

    “For 19 of the 20 unexpected contaminants, we then found published research from the previous two years, confirming that the lab had indeed been working on these unexpected genes,” Quay wrote in written testimony (pdf) before a hearing on gain-of-function research held by the Senate subcommittee Emerging Threats and Spending Oversight. The hearing was only attended by the subcommittee’s Republican members.

    But one contaminant not accounted for in papers published by WIV, Quay said, was cloning vectors of the Nipah virus.

    “This is the most dangerous research I have ever encountered,” Quay said in the written testimony.

    The Nipah virus has a lethality of more than 60 percent, more than that of Ebola, though it is less transmissible than the latter virus since it is not airborne, the expert said at the hearing. The Nipah virus is also about 60 times deadlier than COVID-19.

    “[A] laboratory-acquired infection with a modified Nipah virus would make the COVID-19 pandemic look like a walk in the park.”

    This kind of synthetic biology is a breach of international law, according to the expert.
    “It’s actually against the biological weapons treaty to take the Nipah virus apart and then put it back together again,” Quay told The Epoch Times in an interview before the hearing.

    Wuhan Lab

    Quay, in the hearing, listed a series of evidence that he said pointed to COVID-19 originating from a lab leak from WIV.

    Among these is the fact that the WIV’s public database of 22,000 samples and viral sequences was taken offline on Sept. 12, 2019, before the onset of the pandemic. While the facility said that this was due to cyber hacks, Quay called this act “suspicious” and believes that the database was taken offline to remove evidence of close precursors to COVID-19, which would have been a “smoking gun” showing that the virus leaked from the lab.

    He further highlighted that WIV was the world’s leading center for the study of coronaviruses, noting that before 2019 the facility was responsible for 65 percent of all published research in the area.

    “For almost a decade, they were going into bat caves throughout China, and … back into Africa as well; 20 visits a year in bringing these samples back to the laboratory,” Quay said at the hearing.

    “They had the largest collection of raw material backbones from nature to then do gain function research on,” he added.

    “I believe it’s the confluence of those two activities … bringing things back from bat caves and gain-of-function research that led to the pandemic.”

    The WIV has repeatedly denied that it was the source of the pandemic, but the Chinese regime has persistently refused to open the lab and its records to outside authorities making an independent investigation of the hypothesis near impossible.

    A 2021 U.S. State Department fact sheet stated that WIV researchers had begun conducting experiments involving RaTG13, identified to have the closest genetic similarity to the COVID-19 virus, from as early as 2016.

    Besides engaging in “’gain of function’ research to engineer chimeric viruses,” the WIV has engaged in laboratory animal experiments on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017, according to the fact sheet.

    New York City Transit is investigating exactly what went wrong. First responders said the driver suffered a medical episode either before or after the crash and went into cardiac arrest.

    "The driver was treated for cardiac arrest. We're not sure, as your question is if it was traumatic or medical in nature, which will be identified by the hospital," EMS Division Chief Evan Suchecki said.

    The driver's sister is also an MTA bus driver. We're told she was pulled off her route immediately to be by her sister's side at the hospital.

    According to EMS, 12 passengers, including children, had minor injuries.

    "I was happy she was alright," a child's mother said. "Just her leg bothering her."

    "This lady, she had blood everywhere. This mas was all banged up," a witness said.

    Transit officials said bus drivers are required to go for physicals twice a year. They said this driver passed her latest checkup in January and was deemed fit for duty on Thursday morning.

    "Right now, I think our attention is focused not only on the investigation but the health and wellbeing of the 13 folks that were on this bus," NYC Transit President Richard Davey said.

    Transit officials said there's no structural damage to the elevated subway infrastructure as a result of the crash.

    EMS: Bus driver treated for cardiac arrest

    The MTA bus driver was treated for cardiac arrest, but it was not immediately clear if that caused the accident or happened after the crash, according to first responders.

    "The driver was treated for cardiac arrest. We're not sure, as your question is if it was traumatic or medical in nature, which will be identified by the hospital," Chief Evan Suchecki said.

    The MTA said the driver has 14 years experience and was deemed fit for duty on Thursday morning.

    This “vaxxident” was not some random mishap, but, more than likely, the direct (albeit delayed) result of a decision made ten months ago by John “Janno” Lieber, who, back then, was Acting Chairman of the MTA (and who now serves as Chairman, Gov. Kathy Hochul having named him for that post).
    No doubt Lieber made that criminally rash decision after much discussion with Mayor Bill de Blasio, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office (Cuomo himself was then distracted by his #MeToo moment), and whatever federal “health” gnomes would have counseled him to mandate “vaccination” of all city employees responsible for public transportation.
    Now Lieber and all those who thus advised him should be brought to justice for whatever harm they’ve ultimately done, and, sadly, will have done—and so should every other bureaucrat and politician pushing “vaccine” mandates on the rest of us.
    Let’s also take a close look at the far bloodier collision that killed Rep. Jackie Walorski and two staffers yesterday in Indiana, when their vehicle “collided head-on with a car that veered into their lane,” as reported by Reuters—a seeming oddity the likes of which we now see every day, throughout the country and the world.
    It must not go unpunished.

    Just learned of this interview on Fox TV where Alex Berenson said some conflict words to Dr. Robert Malone.

    Dr. Malone handled the matter smoothly.

    Dr. Robert Malone vs Alex Berenson
    January 15, 2022 | sundance | 372 Comments

    I saw this last night and was actually a little taken back in the exchange. For some unknown reason (though I have suspicions), instead of Alex Berenson using his time on Fox News to confront the malicious and fraudulent manipulation of medical science, he decided to attack the credibility of Dr. Robert Malone.

    ___

    There could be nefarious motives for this; however, the Occam’s Razor perspective is simply that Alex Berenson carries a thin-skinned trait of social awkwardness and is unaware how his engagements with people can be off-putting. You decide. WATCH:

    Dr. Robert Malone expanded on his opinion of Berenson via Substack:

    “Unprofessional, rude and an arsehole to boot. But beyond that, I think we can all assume CONTROLLED OPPOSITION.”

    Vaccination and long covid

    we did not observe evidence of qualitatively different symptom clustering in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated individuals,

    with either alpha or delta variants.

    Background

    It is now evident that post-COVID syndrome presents with heterogeneous profiles,

    need characterisation to enable personalised care

    Methods

    Prospective longitudinal cohort study

    N = 336,652 subjects

    (Covid Symptom Study)

    Tested positive

    Long-COVID = lasting longer than 28 days

    N = 1,459 with post-COVID syndrome (more than 12 weeks of symptoms)

    One in 230 symptomatic, test confirmed cases

    Clustering analysis, to identify distinct symptom profiles

    Across

    Variants of SARS-CoV-2

    Vaccination status at the time of infection

    Clusters were characterised

    Symptom prevalence

    Duration

    Demography

    Prior conditions (comorbidities)

    Findings

    We identified distinct profiles of symptoms for post-COVID syndrome

    Wild-type variant

    Four endotypes identified

    Alpha variant

    Seven endotypes

    Delta variant

    Five endotypes in vaccinated subjects

    Endotype

    a subtype of a disease condition,

    defined by a distinct pathophysiological mechanism

    Interpretation

    Our classification may be useful to understand distinct mechanisms of the post-COVID syndrome, as well as subgroups of individuals at risk of prolonged debilitation.

    Dr Claire Steves, clinical lead author, King's College London

    https://news.sky.com/story/three-type...

    These data show clearly that post-COVID syndrome is not just one condition, but appears to have at several subtypes.

    Understanding the root causes of these subtypes may help in finding treatment strategies.

    Moreover, these data emphasise the need for long COVID services to incorporate a personalised approach sensitive to the issues of each individual.

    Dr Liane Canas, author

    These insights could aid in the development of personalised diagnosis and treatment for these individuals

    Vaccines Will Not and Cannot Make this Virus Endemic

    By Pierre Kory August 5, 2022


    President Joe Biden’s repeated COVID-19 diagnosis is the latest data point showing our government’s “vaccine only” approach needs an immediate course correction. If four doses of a vaccine cannot protect the leader of the free world from infection, it is time to consider other tactics.

    These measures should include generic medicines that have been dismissed by the mainstream medical community and media.

    While Americans across the ideological spectrum wish the president recovery, we must take this moment to acknowledge that a strategy blindly focused on vaccinations is not getting the job done.

    Don’t take my word for it. Use Biden’s own standard for success. Exactly one year before testing positive, the President declared, “You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.” Back then, the seven-day average of new cases in the United States was around 50,000. Today, that number is estimated to be between 300,000-500,000 when considering ubiquitous and uncounted home testing, despite two-thirds of the population considered “fully vaccinated” by the CDC.

    Yet the push for vaccines from the administration has continued unabated. Following Biden’s diagnosis, the White House tried to take a political victory lap. In their first press briefing following news of the diagnosis, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stressed the president’s vaccination status as, “what’s most important here.”

    As a lifelong Democrat and medical doctor who has helped more than 700 patients recover from COVID-19 and its complications, I have seen the effectiveness of other treatment options with my own eyes. Take for instance, fluvoxamine, an inexpensive generic medicine typically associated with depression treatment. It costs $4 per pill, is readily available at pharmacies, and has demonstrated an effectiveness combating COVID-19 in large, randomized, controlled trials published in the Journal of the American Medical Association and the Lancet.

    Yet two years after this data appeared, fluvoxamine is still getting the cold shoulder from the medical gatekeepers. Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institutes of Health do not recommend its use against COVID-19.

    Furthermore, medical professionals who deviate from the party line are callously dismissed by mainstream media outlets such as NPR, as “fringe medical doctors, natural healers and internet personalities ready to push unproven cures for COVID.”

    Science and medicine are always changing for the better. Consider the incredible shifts in the landscape that occurred between the current president contracting the novel coronavirus and his predecessor. In October 2020, there were limited options available for President Donald Trump. Less than two years later, a nearly 80-year-old president was presumed to be on a path toward recovery on the day of his diagnosis.

    Progress is a wonderful thing, but it’s only possible with an attitude of open-mindedness that challenges the status quo. Doctors and innovators should be incentivized to pursue and explore new and different approaches. Instead, we are being forced to adopt a group think or risk suffering the wrath of the establishment, or worse, loss of livelihood.

    The powerful American Board of Internal Medicine, a sprawling organization with certification authority, has been issuing threatening letters to board-certified physicians with exemplary careers, accusing them of “misinformation” when their public assessments of the efficacy of generic, repurposed therapies contradict those of federal health agencies.

    To be sure, demonstrably false “misinformation” can be dangerous, and a topic worthy of discussion. But with overwhelming evidence to support the statements in question, advocating different courses of action toward COVID-19 is far from misinformation. In fact, the suggestion from the White House that the vaccine lessened Biden’s symptoms more closely meets the standard for misinformation since it is an impossible standard to prove.

    Of all people, Biden should be open to new ideas. He was elected with a clear mandate to implement a fresh approach toward the pandemic. Two summers ago, he castigated his predecessor, saying, “the president still does not have a plan.” He went on to say, “More than 170,000 Americans have died — by far the worst performance of any nation on Earth.”

    Today, that number has — sadly — topped 1 million. Many more lives have been lost on this president’s watch than the last one. These are sobering statistics. Biden has fallen short of promise to “shut down” the virus.

    It’s clear COVID-19 is going to be with us for the foreseeable future. How we address it is up to us. Now is the time for a change in approach. Let’s hope our elected leaders and medical professionals take heed.

    A version of this first ran on Fox.

    Dr. Mercola: CDC Got Caught Hiding Data, "Beyond Shocking" Vaccine Guidance For Toddlers. (EpochTV)

    FDA Approval of COVID-19 Vaccines for Infants and Young Children Is ‘Egregious’: Dr. Mercola

    By Masooma Haq and Roman Balmakov

    August 5, 2022 Updated: August 5, 2022


    The various national public health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have capitulated and surrendered to pharmaceutical companies, said Dr. Joseph Mercola.

    Mercola, a practicing physician of over 25 years, has been educating the public about healthy, disease-free lifestyle choices based on natural medicine since 1997 through his website, mercola.com.

    In an Aug. 3 interview for EpochTV’s “Facts Matter” program, Mercola discussed the FDA’s June 15 decision to approve COVID-19 vaccines for infants and young children, saying it has a shocking resemblance to what happens in totalitarian societies.

    “It’s probably one of the most egregious and outrageous decisions ever reached in American medicine,” he said. “It’s just shades of Nazi Germany with what they’re doing.”

    Infant Vaccines Scientifically Unjustifiable

    The Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), a 21-member panel with the responsibility to “review and evaluate data concerning the safety, effectiveness, and appropriate use of vaccines,” unanimously voted to recommend COVID-19 shots for children aged 6 months to 5 years.

    During the voting process, Dr. Cody Meissner, a professor of pediatrics and director of the pediatric infectious disease division at Tufts University School of Medicine, voted to approve the authorization. But he urged that there be clear messaging to parents about the very low risk of infection or hospitalization their infant and preschool aged children will have from COVID-19.

    “I think that has to be communicated clearly to parents so they can participate in the decision of vaccinating a child in this age group,” he said.

    Meissner said the number of deaths among preschool age children over the course of the pandemic were about 440, and spread out over the course of two years, those numbers show that children are more likely to be struck by lightening than to die from COVID-19, he said.

    “We’re talking about a very rare event,” said Meissner.

    “There was no justification to it [the approval for infant vaccines],” said Mercola “There’s no risk. Plus, there’s no benefit,” Mercola said of the vaccines for children.



    Profits Before the Public Well-being


    Mercola criticized the FDA and its advisory panel members for not putting the well-being of the public before profits. He said these agencies started out protecting the public but that this is no longer true, and that the agencies are now just acting in the interests of the drug companies and the government.

    According to a 2018 report in Science magazine, of the 107 advisers who voted on FDA committees over the course of 4 years, 40 earned more than $10,000 from the makers of drugs that the panels voted to approve, or from firms competing against the makers of drugs they voted not to approve. Another 26 received more than $100,000, and six people received over $1 million.

    Mercola said many former FDA doctors go on to work for drug companies.

    “They want to make the public believe that there’s some type of regulatory action going on to protect them, but nothing could be further from the truth,” he said. “It’s a sham. It’s a charade.”

    An FDA spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email that all advisory committee members are required to disclose any conflicts of interest according to U.S. law.

    “In reviewing the information provided, the FDA seeks to identify all potential financial conflicts related to the particular matter before a committee by reviewing not only the financial interests of a potential advisory committee participant and his immediate family, but also the financial interests, of which he has the knowledge, of the participant’s business partners, organizations for which he serves as an officer, director, trustee, general partner, or employee, and any prospective employer of the member (if there are ongoing employment negotiations or an agreement regarding future employment).”

    Because most healthy children do not get severe reactions from COVID-19, and the vaccines do not stop transmission, there is no a rational reason for recommending or requiring the vaccine for children, he said.

    “They’re basing these strategies on the assumption that most people that they’re targeting have lost their critical thinking skills,” he said.



    Many People Are Hypnotized by Fear

    Mercola said although his recent examination of CDC data found that only 2 percent of children under 5 were vaccinated, the push to get children vaccinated is “reprehensible medical malpractice and negligence” and “literally crimes against humanity.”

    Mercola discussed the idea of “mass formation” hypnosis and mentioned Mattias Desmet, author of the book, “The Psychology of Totalitarianism,” which explains how large swaths of people can be brainwashed when they’re in a state of isolation and free-floating anxiety, leading them to follow the FDA guidance without thinking critically.

    A large part of the public is suffering from mass formation hypnosis, and “Big Tech” companies such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook had a major hand in that, Mercola said.
    Besides perpetuating fear, Big Tech companies censor data that competes with the dominant narrative.

    “Almost all of the natural medicine has been heavily censored and essentially removed from the internet, not only my site but many, many others,” said Mercola.

    The reason they do this is that western modern medicine was purged of any alternative and natural components about 120 years ago, said Mercola, with the publication of the Flexner Report of 1910. This document changed the face of modern medical education, he said.




    Drugs Are Over-Prescribed

    “What I didn’t mention earlier is that what happened [as a consequence of the 1910 Flexner Report] is that they excluded the entirety of natural medicine, all nutrition,” he said. “It was deleted from the medical school curriculum, and it was replaced with this total focus on using drugs as a solution.”

    Two of the wealthiest individuals of the time—John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie—funded the Flexner Report through their organizations, and Rockefeller contributed millions to the medical establishment.

    For four generations, medical doctors have been taught to use the disease model of medicine, which excludes natural medicine, said Mercola.

    “[Doctors are] just brainwashed with this perspective that drugs are the answer,” he said.

    “You learn to diagnose a constellation of symptoms with a disease label, and that disease label has a wide variety of drug options.”

    In a paper about the impact of the Flexner Report, Dr. Thomas P. Duffy states that “American medicine profited immeasurably from the scientific advances that this system allowed, but the hyper-rational system of German science created an imbalance in the art and science of medicine.”

    Although Mercola started his practice adhering to these hyper-rational medical practices of prescribing medication for every ailment, he soon realized there is a deeper and more holistic method of treatment, so he started integrating natural medicine and preventative care into his practice, which slowly flourished.

    Besides natural treatment, anything that is contrary to the narrative the medical establishment and governments wants to push is censored, much like the early treatments for COVID-19, said Mercola.


    Few Doctors Oppose Government Mandates

    The reason more physicians do not voice objections to irrational policies and mandates is the fear of losing their livelihoods, said Mercola.

    “The majority of physicians in this country, they typically create so much debt when they’re going through medical school—maybe it’s a half a million dollars of debt would be a typical case—they are essentially slaves to a system,” said Mercola.

    “But fortunately, there are a fairly significant number of brave and courageous physicians who’ve spoken up and frequently, at great threat to their health, their professional careers,” he said, mentioning Dr. Peter McCullough specifically.

    Over the course of his career, Mercola has been labeled by Big Tech and some media outlets as “unscientific,” most recently for opposing the COVID-19 vaccine’s widespread use. But people can see the truth, Mercola said, and his business has flourished despite attacks.

    “The website’s become so big,” he said. “And even with the censorship, we’re still the most visited natural health site in the world and have been for the last 20 years.”
