U.S. intelligence finds no evidence of coronavirus artificiality

The United States does not have information about the artificial origin of the new type of coronavirus, there is no evidence so far. This was reported by Assistant Secretary of State Ellen McCarthy.


McCarthy, head of the US State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR), speaking at a briefing, said that INR did not find evidence of the artificial origin of coronavirus. According to her, the US State Department also does not have information about the whereabouts of the "zero patient" and where the spread of the disease came from.

At this stage, there is no evidence that it was genetically engineered or otherwise exposed.

- she said.

A similar statement was made by the head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, who on Fox News confirmed that the USA has no evidence of the artificial origin of coronavirus, as well as information about where it came from (coronavirus).

It is worth noting here that despite his statement, Pompeo again tried to shift the blame on the Chinese, stressing that "US attempts to establish the source of coronavirus stumbled on China's ban on visiting the laboratory in Wuhan", as well as "other places where it was possible to establish it."

As previously reported, Moscow also adheres to the version of the natural origin of coronavirus. At least, the Kremlin noted, while there is no evidence to the contrary.

      They had no such task - to find out. Do they have everything done? There is a task to find bioweapons in Iraq - here they are. There is a task not to find the artificiality of the virus - here, they have not been found. Very executive intelligence! Real scouts!

        As a result, nothing was found in Iraq. However, nothing prevented the United States from bombing Iraq to the ground. In the West, the accusation, even if empty, not supported by any evidence, is considered quite a real reason for the bombing of independent countries. They don’t care if there is something there or not, the main reason. Evidence of the Skripals where? And nowhere. So what? But nothing. Of course, they did not dare to bomb Russia (it would be more expensive for themselves), but sanctions that could only be imposed by the entire collective west. So, as long as the United States exists, China will “rake out” the virus as pretty. at least sanctions, that's for sure. Yes, and Chinese money, buried in American papers, more than a trillion, there is something to hold on to.

          Pompeo stated that the USA has no evidence of the ARTIFICIAL origin of the coronavirus, as well as information about where it came from (coronavirus).
          As previously reported, Moscow also adheres to the version of the NATURAL origin of coronavirus. At least, the Kremlin noted, while there is no evidence to the contrary.

          Nevertheless, despite these allegations, at a briefing by the Russian Foreign Ministry on April 17, Maria Zakharova told TASS that the Russian Foreign Ministry drew attention to the strengthening of the American biological presence outside the United States, in particular in the former Soviet republics. Namely.
          "It cannot be ruled out that in such reference laboratories, Americans in third countries are working on the creation and modification of various pathogens of dangerous diseases, including for military purposes,"

          At the same time, Zakharova recalled that Georgia is also functioning US-Georgian Center public health named Richard Lugar who officially included in the US military system for global control of the spread of infectious diseases.
          "Moreover, according to available information, senior Pentagon officials have recently been there again, offering the Georgian authorities to expand the range of research", the diplomat added.

          Georgia also backs off from this accusation of the Russian Federation and blocks the United States.

      According to an American statesman who served as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly half a century, from 1924 until his death in 1972. John Edgar Hoover: - "The main thing, having started the investigation is not to go out on ourselves." (C)
      Nothing has changed since then.

          Here is Igor Nikulin, a microbiologist, ex-adviser to the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on bacteriological and chemical weapons, who says that the virus is artificial and all experts know it and also answers why everyone is “silent” or how the institutes repeat the mantra about “naturalness” its origin, all these "scientists" and "experts" are on grants from Americans (who want to be left without "food") or work for the governments of their countries that follow directions from Washington.

      The key word here is “artificiality” and what is meant by it. If the methods of genetic engineering - then yes, it is not necessary to apply them and formally they are right. But! The virus can be modified by traditional methods. For example, in the manufacture of vaccines, a weakened strain can be obtained by simple culture in other cells. A similar approach can be applied in the opposite direction - to derive a strain with new properties by cultivation in cells or even infection of forced people. And this strain will be practically indistinguishable from natural in the sense of provability of artificial origin. Moreover, it is already possible to apply a new strain without fear of exposure.

      They would simply provide a photo of the virus with the stigma "Made in China" and the testimony of several classified witnesses (as in the subject of the Malaysian Boeing) and everything is in openwork. You can twist China for pace.

          What it is difficult for the States to refuse is the ability to count money, well done guys! Why should they conduct "hostilities" on their own territory, incurring losses? Moreover, such an unpredictable weapon, like a virus, is not an explosion of twin towers. It is unlikely that the virus will strengthen the dollar.

        How are they fighting epidemics there, if, by a strange coincidence, the epidemics in Ukraine arose precisely at the locations of these laboratories, and if you recall a few dozen deceased in less than a month who were delivered dead from a laboratory in Georgia in 2015?

Yes, no. From the point of view of capitalism, these are superfluous people, ballast, "did not fit into the market." And with the economy, and so, everything went to crisis (the first time or something), now you can at least blame the virus.

      23 delegates from 17 countries of the world arrived in Tbilisi: Austria, USA, Great Britain, Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iraq, Hungary, Italy, Cameroon, Colombia, Malaysia, Mali, Myanmar, Montenegro, Kazakhstan, Chile, Uganda.

      The inspection of the center was carried out under the Convention on the Prohibition of the Production and Provision of Bacteriological and Toxic Weapons (BWC). Georgia acceded to this convention on May 22, 1996. As a member of the convention, Georgia is obliged to provide a full report and comprehensive information on its own biological capabilities.
      Experts had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the activities of the entire institution, the report said, unanimously. It also notes that the laboratory ensures the transparency of its work, and all its activities are connected only with the prevention of various diseases.

      “The facility is transparent. The group of experts did not identify anything inconsistent with the declared institution’s preventive, scientific and peaceful goals, ”the report said.




      Russian experts will visit the Richard Lugar Public Health Research Center in the vicinity of Tbilisi. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin after another round of negotiations with the Special Representative of the Prime Minister of Georgia on the settlement of relations with the Russian Federation Zurab Abashidze in Prague.

      “At today's meeting, I thanked the Georgian side for the offer to visit the Lugar laboratory for our experts. We believe that it will be very good. This is correct and welcomed, however, we agreed that experts should meet and agree on details before arriving in Georgia, ”quoted Karasin as saying“ News-Georgia ”.

      It is believed that the Maidan in Ukraine was organized in order not to comply with the decision of the former Rada to close biological laboratories.
      And here is some more interesting information on the topic:
      Who and why killed Barry Sherman, a manufacturer of drugs against COVID-19?
      The leading manufacturer of the drug hydroxychloroquine, which President Trump urged to use in the fight against coronavirus, tragically died in December 2017.
      “Someone” was already preparing for the appearance of COVID-19, and he really needed to make sure that the unique properties of the hydroxychloroquine preparation in its use in treating the symptoms of COVID-19 were not known by the time the epidemic began. Given that the drug is produced in Canada, there is no doubt that if it were not for the killing of Barry Sherman, he would have started to be used much faster, and thus would have significantly reduced the death rate from COVID-19, first in the US and Canada, and then in all over the world.

      It has already been proven that the coronary virus has a natural origin and has long been living among people. But what provoked its activity now, the big question?

      Yes, nothing provoked. Previously, just no one checked all sorts of different influenza, acute respiratory viral infections and acute respiratory infections for the type of virus that it causes. In Wuhan, there is a laboratory, which, apparently, was engaged in the development of this virus together with the United States. Understanding that this virus or some other leak could be there, people were periodically checked for infection with this virus, and just one of the scientists who took part in the development of this virus together with the United States in 2015 discovered a sick woman infected with this virus. They began to check everyone after this and found a bunch of infected people. It is also strange that the first Wei infected on December 16 allegedly turned herself not to somewhere else, but rather to the Sehe hospital at Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Simple trader and appeals to the elite center? Coincidence? I don’t think so.
      Here is another confirmation that this coronavirus has long been circulating among people:
      A team of doctors from several American universities conducted extensive testing for antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 among residents of the California district of Santa Clara. According to the results of the study, it turned out that the number of people infected with coronavirus exceeds the number of previously detected cases by several tens of times.

      Antibody tests were taken in early April from 3330 volunteers recruited from among local residents, taking into account gender, age, race and ethnicity, residential address, the presence of chronic diseases and clinical symptoms of SARS.

      50 of the samples obtained, i.e. 1,5% of the total, showed the presence of antibodies. However, the researchers corrected this result, taking into account both the incomplete representativeness of the sample and the error of the test systems themselves, which was verified in several ways. As a result, they came to the conclusion that from 2,49% to 4,16% of the population can be infected in the district.

      In absolute terms, this ranges from 48000 to 81000 people, while at the time of the test in Santa Clara, there were only 956 officially confirmed cases of COVID-19, that is, 50–85 times less than the study showed.

      Based on these data, scientists conclude, firstly, that the actual number of patients with COVID-19 in the United States and around the world is significantly higher than official statistics, and secondly, that the mortality rate from coronavirus infection is at least in Santa Clara, is in the range of 0,12% to 0,2%.
      American doctors confirm their findings with references to other similar studies conducted recently in Italy, Germany and Colorado, which revealed 2% to 15% of patients with COVID-19 among those tested for antibodies.

    At the same time, some states have already begun to sue China under a finger poking in his direction Trump and Pompeo. The Americans, before demanding admission to the Chinese laboratory at least once, allowed foreigners into one of their own. You can’t do them, but they are simply obliged. I doubt very much that China will pay at least one yuan in claims and will remain silent in this situation.

    Should I ask the janitors yet? Even the opinions of auto mechanics and makeup artists would have looked great. What does intelligence have to do with it? What were they looking for there? The inscription on the wall - to develop a cool virus dots Central Committee CPC dots? Ugh! The answer to the question, whether an artificial virus or not, must be sought from biologists, biochemists and virologists.
    True, scientists will give the answer that science gives. Apparently the US authorities are not ready to hear such an answer. And intelligence will carry it the way they were told. That seems to be the goal. Unfortunately, the US authorities, the evidence can not be slipped. Skeptics around, test tube shake became unfashionable ...

    23 delegates from 17 countries of the world arrived in Tbilisi: Austria, USA, Great Britain, Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iraq, Hungary, Italy, Cameroon, Colombia, Malaysia, Mali, Myanmar, Montenegro, Kazakhstan, Chile, Uganda.

    The inspection of the center was carried out under the Convention on the Prohibition of the Production and Provision of Bacteriological and Toxic Weapons (BWC). Georgia acceded to this convention on May 22, 1996. As a member of the convention, Georgia is obliged to provide a full report and comprehensive information on its own biological capabilities.
    Experts had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the activities of the entire institution, the report said, unanimously. It also notes that the laboratory ensures the transparency of its work, and all its activities are connected only with the prevention of various diseases.

    “The facility is transparent. The group of experts did not identify anything inconsistent with the declared institution’s preventive, scientific and peaceful goals, ”the report said.




    Russian experts will visit the Richard Lugar Public Health Research Center in the vicinity of Tbilisi. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin after another round of negotiations with the Special Representative of the Prime Minister of Georgia on the settlement of relations with the Russian Federation Zurab Abashidze in Prague.

    “At today's meeting, I thanked the Georgian side for the offer to visit the Lugar laboratory for our experts. We believe that it will be very good. This is correct and welcomed, however, we agreed that experts should meet and agree on details before arriving in Georgia, ”quoted Karasin as saying“ News-Georgia ”.

      That stir up - so for sure.

      Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, April 20, 2020
      “Question: Against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic raging in the world, are there any intentions to begin global negotiations to combat such bio-threats in future?

      Answer: I would like to break this question into two components. The first is the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention, which does not have a proper verification mechanism. Russia has long and consistently advocated the development of a verification protocol to this convention. At one time, when such a protocol was more than 90% ready, US unilaterally withdraws from negotiations. The work could not be completed.
      We have many ideas and suggestions on how to increase the effectiveness of this convention and what measures the international community could take as a matter of mutual assistance in situations where countries are experiencing stresses associated with certain bioagents, let's call them that. How to apply, apply, and reverse the situation with coronavirus to these our efforts? The question, of course, is super-relevant. ”

      Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, February 7, 2020.
      “The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on Their Destruction (BTWC) was approved by the UN General Assembly in 1971 (the first ever ban on a whole WMD category). Entered into force in 1975. It is unlimited. As of January 2020 - 183 participants. Depositories: Russia, USA and Great Britain.

      <...> a serious drawback of the Convention is lack of a mechanism for verifying compliance by participating States with their obligations. The Special Conference of States Parties to the BTWC (1994) established an Ad Hoc Group of Experts of the States Parties to develop an international legally binding document (protocol) to strengthen the Convention (formally, the mandate of this Special Group continues to operate). The developed draft protocol contained mandatory declarations of certain types of activities in the field of biology, measures to verify compliance (including site visits and investigations of any alleged violations of the BTWC), as well as measures to improve cooperation and scientific and technical exchanges.
      In 2001, on the eve of V OK, the United States unilaterally thwarted the adoption of the draft protocol to the BTWC. Washington’s position remains unchanged - the refusal to develop a legally binding protocol, especially containing verification elements. ”

      And here, one more "news" from the USA arrived, and what a great deal! Everything within the framework of the rule — if you want to find the culprit in a given situation — determine to whom it is beneficial:
      In the United States, a three-year ban on the production of deadly viruses in the laboratory was lifted. According to the BBC on April 20, the decision in the US government was explained by the fact that "the potential benefits of research offset the potential risks." According to the source, laboratories can now synthesize influenza viruses, SARS and the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).

      According to updated instructions, laboratories must conduct research responsibly, respond quickly and minimize potential risks. In addition, they are obliged to take the necessary measures in case of accidents, non-compliance with the rules and procedures, as well as possible safety violations.

      Research institutions must demonstrate that their work is ethically justified. They must also have enough resources to ensure safe operation, the decision of the US government says. In addition, research institutes are also responsible for the potential causative agents of the epidemic.

      Opponents of innovation say experiments with hypermorphic mutations can trigger epidemics. So, epidemiologist Mark Lipsich from Harvard University in a commentary on Nature magazine said that such experiments would hardly help in preparing for epidemics, and at the same time they could cause outbreaks of disease.
      The publication recalls that the ban on research was introduced after several government agencies violated the safety rules when working with viruses, including the causative agents of anthrax and bird flu. Thus, according to the BBC, in 2014, two resonant cases occurred due to oversight: in June, 75 employees of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta found themselves in an area presumably infected with anthrax bacteria, and in July an orphan box was discovered in a research center near Washington in which were old test tubes with smallpox virus. In addition, there were concerns that published research on pathogens could be used to create mutant viruses.

      It turns out that this is the nature of our "bioterrorist", and the United States as a "holy warrior" will fight it (with nature) by the proactive creation of new viruses .... yes Now tell me that the supporters of the existence of a world conspiracy against humanity are wrong and their words are not true that the last meeting of the “Cabinet 300” adopted a strategy to reduce the Earth’s population in all available ways. wink

        - Zhengli-Li Shi, Chinese internationally recognized virologist as a "bat"
        "<...> to study the potential for the occurrence (that is, the ability to infect humans) of circulating CoV in bats, we created a chimeric virusencoding a new, zoonotic CoV spike protein - from the RsSHC014-CoV sequence that was isolated from Chinese horseshoe bats 1 - in the context of SARS-CoV adapted to main chain mice. The hybrid virus allowed us to evaluate the ability of a new spike protein to cause disease independently of other necessary adaptive mutations in its natural skeleton. Using this approach, we characterized the SHC014 spike protein mediated CoV infection in human primary airway cells and in vivo. We tested the efficacy of available immune therapies against SHC014-CoV "

        “Fundamental research related to the passage of SARS-CoV-like bat coronaviruses in cell cultures and / or animal models has been going on for many years in biosafety level 2 laboratories around the world, and laboratory leakage documented SARS-CoV. Therefore, we must explore the possibility of inadvertent laboratory release of SARS-CoV-2.

        Theoretically possiblethat SARS-CoV-2 acquired RBD mutations (Fig. 1a) during adaptation to the passage in cell culture, as was observed in SARS-CoV studies. ”

    The stump is so clear that it’s natural, only subjected to selection (well, or whatever it is called scientifically correctly). The technology itself is simple. The virus culture is taken, introduced to the intermediate carrier. From the intermediate to primates, from primates to humans. The technology is known from the beginning last century, and even earlier

Vasily Ivanovich arrived from India and tells Petka how he studied yoga there: “They brought me, Petruha, to some kind of temple, and there the bearded people started to twist me, and they knitted me for a knot! I lost consciousness from pain, woke up - right in front of my face someone’s big smelly opa sticks out. I couldn’t stand it and how I’ll bite it with all the dope! Imagine it was mine, my own ... "
