Video From 2018 Shows Chinese Scientists Working On Coronavirus In Wuhan Lab

State media report warned “mankind must actively monitor the viral infections in bats and other wild animals.”

Video footage aired by Chinese state media has revealed Chinese scientists at the Wuhan Institute of virology studying ‘a novel coronavirus’ that they discovered within bats in 2018, less than two years before the outbreak.

The video was broadcast by communist mouthpiece CCTV in April 2018, but has since reemerged on the web following the global coronavirus spread.

The so called ‘bat woman’ Shi Zhengli, a lead researcher from the institute, has claimed that the pathogen scientists were working on in the video is different from the current strain of coronavirus that has now killed hundreds of thousands around the world.

The video highlights that the virus was found in rufous horseshoe bats, native to East and South Asia, but not found naturally in Wuhan.

Separate research has found that the coronavirus we have come to know is 96% identical to the strain in these bats.

The strain was found to be responsible for a large outbreak of fatal disease in pigs in southern China just one year earlier.

In a previous paper Shi noted that the outbreak emerged in the province of Guangdong in 2017 and caused the death of more than 20,000 piglets.

The CCTV footage notes that “The research shows that mankind must actively monitor the viral infections in bats and other wild animals.”

According to a report in the Australian Daily Telegraph this week, the so called ‘Five eyes’ intelligence co-operative – agencies in Australia, Canada, NZ, UK and US, are all investigating senior scientist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Peng Zhou, with regards to the potential of the coronavirus leaking from the lab.

The report also notes that the Australian government co-funded Zhou’s research into bat borne viruses, in co-operation with the Chinese government.

It reveals that the scientist also spent three years at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory between 2011 and 2014, as part of a study involving transporting bats from Queensland to the lab to be dissected and studied for viruses.

China has denied the US access to the Wuhan lab, according to US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. The facility has come under increased scrutiny after it was revealed that the US government under the Obama administration funded researchthere for a number of years.

In addition, a world renowned Russian microbiologist claimed last week that the novel coronavirus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic was the result of Wuhan scientists doing “absolutely crazy things” in their lab.

Furthermore, a University of Texas Medical Branch lab director who visited the Wuhan institute in 2017 says that it would be foolish to dismiss the idea that the coronavirus escaped from the facility, and that “Accidents happen” in such labs.

Report: Yale Students Warn That COVID Tyranny Has Turned Campus Into Stasi-Like ‘Surveillance State’

School issuing compliance warnings to anyone caught violating restrictions and reported to the authorities by fellow students

Some students at Yale are warning that the litany of restrictions and rules, and the system the university has implemented to report anyone seen to be breaking them, has transformed the campus into a “surveillance state” policed by Stasi-like students who are annoyed at others violating the ever changing decrees.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that complaints are being registered anonymously against anyone not wearing a mask, or indulging in “handshakes, hugs, and high-fives.”

In one example cited in the report, one student was in the library watching a movie without anyone else around, but was caught and filmed committing the cardinal sin of not wearing the mask.

Forty eight hours later the student received a warning from school officials declaring that he had “failed to meet the commitments you agreed to in the Yale Community Compact.”

The note stated that the student would be allowed to tell his side of the story and then officials would “review the matter and decide whether [his] conduct poses a risk to the health and safety of [himself] or other community members.”

After a fortnight passed, the student was sent another warning stating “Should you continue to engage in behavior that violates the Yale Community Compact, you will be placed on Public Health Warning and may face more serious outcomes, including the removal of permission to be on campus.”

The Beacon notes that this is far from an isolated incident, with one student telling reporters that most are against the restrictions, but have become a “silenced majority” in fear of enduring “shame” and “administrative consequences” if they resist.

Another student who was reported to the authorities anonymously said “I have no clue who reported me,” adding “The system has had a lot of success in keeping people scared.”

The report also notes that students are finding themselves in the crosshairs for posting unmasked photos on social media.

In an Instagram post relating how he had been reported for dining outdoors without a mask in violation of a Yale off campus dining ban, a student noted “This is too much power to put in the hands of students,” urging that “People can be petty and get classmates in trouble with standards that are changing every five minutes.”

Yale and other universities like it are microcosms of the outside world where anyone seen to be of an opinion that doesn’t match exactly with what the authorities demand is duly ‘exposed’ and ostracised.

Several U.S. schools have threatened to completely cut off basic services, including internet access for students if they do not fully comply with all COVID restrictions on campus.

As we have previously reported, colleges are being used as testing grounds for technology to enforce draconian distancing, mask and lockdown measures:

Universities are also threatening to suspend students who dare to leave pre-determined ‘bubble’ areas around campuses, or visit non “approved businesses” without permission.

Other universities have gone as far as issuing demands for students to wear masks while having sex, even if it’s sex with their own hands.

    Speech Therapist: 364% Surge in Baby and Toddler Referrals Thanks to Mask Wearing

    Young children developing cognitive problems due to widespread use of face coverings.

    A speech therapist says that mask wearing during the pandemic has caused a 364% increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers.

    Jaclyn Theek told WPBF News that before the pandemic, only 5 per cent of patients were babies and toddlers, but this has soared to 20 per cent.

    Parents are describing their children’s speech problems as “COVID delayed,” with face coverings the primary cause of their speaking skills being seriously impaired.

    As young as 8 months old, babies start learning how to speak by reading lips, a thankless task if parents and carers smother themselves with masks to comply with mandates.

    “It’s very important kids do see your face to learn, so they’re watching your mouth,” said Theek.

    The news report featured one such mother, Briana Gay, who is raising five children but having speech problems with her youngest.

    “It definitely makes a difference when the world you’re growing up in you can’t interact with people and their face, that’s super important to babies,” said Gay.

    According to Theek, since the pandemic, autism symptoms are also skyrocketing.

    “They’re not making any word attempts and not communicating at all with their family,” she said.

    As we previously highlighted, Forbes deleted an article written by an education expert who asserted that forcing schoolchildren to wear face masks was causing psychological trauma.

    A study by researchers at Brown University found that mean IQ scores of young children born during the pandemic have tumbled by as much as 22 points while verbal, motor and cognitive performance have all suffered as a result of lockdown.

    Michael Curzon noted that two of the primary causes for this are face masks and children being atomized as a result of being kept away from other children.

    “Children born over the past year of lockdowns – at a time when the Government has prevented babies from seeing elderly relatives and other extended family members, from socialising at parks or with the children of their parent’s friends, and from studying the expressions on the faces behind the masks of locals in indoor public spaces – have significantly reduced verbal, motor and overall cognitive performance compared to children born before, according to a new U.S. study. Tests on early learning, verbal development and non-verbal development all produced results that were far behind those from the years preceding the lockdowns,” he wrote.

    Perhaps all the virtue signalers who think of themselves as such morally upstanding people for wearing masks will change their behavior given they are literally contributing to causing major cognitive problems in children.

    Or maybe they simply won’t care, given that the mask is now a political status symbol above anything else.

    Canadian Walmarts Install Vaccine Passport Scanner Booths to Screen Customers

    Welcome to the new normal.

    Published

    on

    Twitter

    Photos from the entrance of a Walmart in Quebec, Canada show plexiglass vaccine passport scanner booths set up to screen customers entering the store.

    According to Walmart, “The dividers are for associates when they scan vaccine passports.”

    Welcome to the new normal.

    Perhaps in the near future, the booths will be staffed by on-site nurses who will dole out regular injections for those who have forgotten to take their 24th booster shot.

    It was initially suggested by some on Twitter that the booths were actually holding pens for the unvaccinated.

    That’s not true, but it is true that big box stores like Walmart and Costco will now have employees accompany the unjabbed as they walk around the store.

    That’s to comply with a new government decree with forbids the unvaccinated from purchasing any other items besides food and pharmaceutical drugs.

    “For pharmacies located in big-box stores, such as Walmart or Costco, an unvaccinated person must be “accompanied at all times during his or her travels by an employee of the business, the pharmacy or any other person mandated by them for this purpose,” reports CBC, citing the decree. “This person may not purchase products other than those related to the pharmaceutical service they are receiving.”

    This of course has little to do with stopping the spread of the virus – given the fact that there’s no evidence vaccine passports even work – and everything to do with punishing the unvaccinated for disobeying the regime.

    As we previously highlighted, authorities announced a ban on the unvaccinated being able to purchase marijuana or hard liquor, another arbitrary punitive measure that makes zero sense whatsoever from a public health perspective.
