Prominent Scientists Warned In 2013 Of Chinese Labs ‘Appalling Irresponsibility’ With Viruses

Experts warned of danger that new viral strains could escape from labs and cause a global pandemic.

A number of leading western scientists issued a stark warning in 2013 that Chinese researchers in virology labs were playing with fire by mixing animal viruses with human pathogens, and that the new strains could leak into the world, causing a killer pandemic.

The Independent published a piece covering the scientists’ concerns on Thursday 2 May 2013.

The article states:

Senior scientists have criticised the “appalling irresponsibility” of researchers in China who have deliberately created new strains of influenza virus in a veterinary laboratory.

They warned there is a danger that the new viral strains created by mixing bird-flu virus with human influenza could escape from the laboratory to cause a global pandemic killing millions of people.

The piece concentrates on experiments with bird flu, but it is a known fact that scientists in China were also experimenting with bat borne coronavirus at this time.

The research was condemned by former UK government chief scientist Lord May of Oxford, who warned it was dangerous and was doing nothing to further the understanding and prevention of flu pandemics.

“They claim they are doing this to help develop vaccines and such like. In fact the real reason is that they are driven by blind ambition with no common sense whatsoever,” Lord May told The Independent at the time.

“The record of containment in labs like this is not reassuring. They are taking it upon themselves to create human-to-human transmission of very dangerous viruses. It’s appallingly irresponsible,” he said.

Another scientist, Professor Simon Wain-Hobson, an eminent virologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris said at the time that “It’s a fabulous piece of virology by the Chinese group and it’s very impressive, but they haven’t been thinking clearly about what they are doing. It’s very worrying.”

“The virological basis of this work is not strong. It is of no use for vaccine development and the benefit in terms of surveillance for new flu viruses is oversold,” he added.

Coincidentally, Lord May died this week at the age of 84. The Scientist notes that “May’s modeling legacy extends to the current outbreak of COVID-19.”

“The models being used to guide the management of the coronavirus pandemic all have their genesis in the seminal work Lord Robert May undertook 40 years ago with Sir Roy Anderson,” the piece notes.

The warnings were there, and this article from seven years ago shows that investigating the bio-labs in Wuhan and the rest of China should indeed be the number one priority of every government in the world right now.

As we have exhaustively covered, several experts are on record as saying that the coronavirus pandemic could have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In addition, the Chinese government knew its labs were a ticking time bomb, and were aware safety measures needed improving.

Video: Man Flying Back Into Canada Refuses Airport COVID Test

Canadians who test positive forced to undergo quarantine in government facility.

After a new policy mandating Canadians take an airport COVID test to determine whether they will have to undergo quarantine at a government facility was introduced yesterday, a viral video clip shows a man refusing to take the test before being issued with a fine.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau outlined the details of the new policy in a tweet yesterday afternoon.

“Update: If you’re flying back into Canada, you’ll need to show a negative PCR test result before you board the plane – and as of today, you’ll need to take another PCR test when you land. You’ll then have to wait at an approved hotel, at your own expense, for your test results,” Trudeau tweeted.

Under the rule, if the test is negative, Canadians are still forced to quarantine in their own homes, a policy that will be “enforced” according to Trudeau.

Those who test positive for COVID-19 are forced to quarantine in “designated government facilities” for 14 days. Another PCR test is then required towards the end of the quarantine.

However, a video clip posted to Instagram by Chris Sky shows him arriving at an airport in Canada and refusing to take the test. The video has received over 500,000 views.

“Got my bags, we’re gonna go outside and refuse their stupid test and tell everybody to refuse their stupid test,” says Sky in the clip.

The video shows Sky being asked why he is not wearing a mask before he explains to officials that the COVID test is a “violation of our charter rights section 6 and a violation of the Emergency Act 14.1 – so I’m going to be declining your test today.”

Sky then tells the other people in the queue to deny the test if they are Canadian citizens, claiming “they cannot stop you, they cannot force you, you are a citizen, you have rights.”

Police then ask Sky for identification before asking again if he is refusing to take the test.

“I refuse to take your test a million percent,” he responds.

After being told he is getting a ticket, police refuse to say how many people have been “convicted,” with Sky insisting the number is “zero.”

“Why? It’s a violation of our charter rights, so when that ticket goes to court, they throw it the fuck out – it’s that simple,” states Sky.

After being issued with the fine, Sky was presumably allowed to leave the airport and re-enter Canada without undergoing a COVID test or being told to quarantine.

UK: Health Authorities Announce Not a Single Case of Flu Detected This Year

Professor suggests keeping mask mandates in place during winter.

Health authorities in England have announced that not a single case of influenza has been detected this year, with one professor suggesting that mask wearing should be kept in place during winter to drive down flu deaths to “zero.”

“The social restrictions brought in to curb transmission of coronavirus, combined with an increased uptake of flu vaccine, have both been credited with driving down infections,” reports the Independent.

Of the 685,243 samples tested at the PHE’s laboratories since the first week of January, not a single flu infection was discovered.

Professor Christina Pagel went on to suggest that some of the measures brought in to fight coronavirus could be kept in place to combat flu infections.

Asserting that “we can reduce flu deaths to pretty much zero,” Pagel said it is “worth encouraging people to wear masks” on public transport and in other busy environments every winter.

As we previously highlighted, other health experts have suggested that flu cases are so dramatically low because influenza cases are being falsely counted as COVID cases.

Last month, top epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski asserted that, “Influenza has been renamed COVID-19 in large part.”

According to the CDC, the cumulative positive influenza test rate from late September into the week of December 19th was just 0.2%, compared to 8.7% from a year before.

According to Wittkowski, former Head of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design at Rockefeller University, this was because many flu infections are being incorrectly labeled as coronavirus cases.

“There may be quite a number of influenza cases included in the ‘presumed COVID-19’ category of people who have COVID-19 symptoms (which Influenza symptoms can be mistaken for), but are not tested for SARS RNA,” Wittkowski told Just the News.

Numbers published in April last year by the UK’s Office of National Statistics also showed that there had been three times more deaths from flu and pneumonia than coronavirus.

“The number of deaths from flu and pneumonia – at more than 32,000 – is three times higher than the total number of coronavirus deaths this year,” reported the BBC.

Former Clinton Adviser: America Becoming ‘Totalitarian State’ Under Biden

“Characteristic of totalism fascism in the ’20’s”

Author and former Clinton advisor Naomi Wolf warned Monday that the US is devolving into a police state under the Biden administration as endless lockdowns and restrictions show no sign of being lifted.

Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Wolf urged that the US is “moving into a coup situation,” under Democrat rule, owing to medical mandates being extended under the “guise of a real medical pandemic.”

Wolf emphasised that “lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a of totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes.”

Far from being a conservative commentator, Wolf pointed out that it’s “not a partisan thing,” and told Carlson that what is happening “transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.”

Wolf continued, “The state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies … which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement, fining us in New York state … the violations go on and on.”

“Autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level are creating this kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of totalism fascism in the ’20’s,” Wolf further warned.

“They are using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights; rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, all the rights the Constitution guarantees,” the liberal author added.

“I really hope we wake up quickly,” Wolf proclaimed, adding “history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”

Less than a week after the election, Wolf expressed regret for voting for Biden, saying that she would never have done so if she had known he was committed to endless lockdowns:

Elsewhere during Calrson’s broadcast, he declared that the “lockdown regime is moving towards authoritarianism.”

The host told viewers “Bill Gates isn’t God, just a big shareholder in Microsoft. But since COVID, Bill Gates has gained extraordinary powers over what you can and cannot do to your own body. Bill Gates would like you to take the coronavirus vaccine. That’s not a request. If you don’t comply, you could lose your job.”

Carlson continued, asking “what effect will this current suspension of our Bill of Rights have on American society over time? What kind of country will your grandkids live in? Is anyone even asking that question? Not anymore, because questions are disloyal. If you believe in science, simply obey.”
