As the walls are closing in on those who’ve attempted to deflect, discredit, and ignore the evidence over the last 18 months that SARS-CoV-2 was engineered at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a few legacy media organizations are starting to report what we’ve reported for a few months and bringing the receipts – sort of.
As the New York Post reported on June 4 (and which RedState’s Scott Hounsell elaborated on later), a Chinese military scientist named Zhou Yusen filed for a patent for a coronavirus vaccine on behalf of the People’s Liberation Army in February 2020, only five weeks after China finally admitted that COVID-19 could be transmitted from human to human. Zhou, an award-winning military scientist, died in May 2020, but the Chinese government didn’t issue any report on his death and there were no tributes, which one would expect for such a decorated scientist. The only documentation of his death is a brief mention in a July 2020 Chinese media report and a notation of “deceased” next to his name on a research paper published in December 2020.
NBC News is now reporting not about Zhou developing the vaccine for the PLA or about the interesting (to say the least) development timeline, but simply that Zhou and at least one other Chinese military scientist performed coronavirus research with Dr. Shi Zhengli at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Of course, the fact that she was knowingly working with the PLA on coronavirus research is a big deal in and of itself given how vehemently she’s denied that on numerous occasions.
In March, Dr. Shi told former State Department official Jamie Metzl (according to video shown in the NBC News report):
In the beginning of this COVID-19 we heard the rumors that claimed that in our laboratory we have some project, blah blah, with the Army, blah, blah, these kind of rumors, but this is not correct.
