In the liturgy of articles written on Wuhan Institute of Virology, one name continues to tie the entire story together: Dr. Peter Daszak. Daszak, the President of EcoHealth Alliance, a non-profit organization that has been funding viral research around the globe for more than 20 years, has been influencing the narrative about the origins of COVID-19 before much was even known about the virus. As previously reported, Daszak orchestrated the signing of a letter, eventually published in the Lancet, by numerous scientists which allegedly “debunked” the lab leak theory by emphatically stating that virus’ origin was due to natural mutation. That letter was drafted in late January 2020 and was circulated amongst numerous scientists via email to solicit support and additional signers – yet, ironically, less than half of those contacted signed the letter.
The MSM and Big Tech then used the Lancet letter as a means of suppressing reporting on information coming out of China that merely suggested that there was evidence of a lab leak, even though there wasn’t a single shred of evidence or data supporting the conclusion in that letter.
As the narrative tide began to shift and people began accepting the potential of a lab leak the Lancet again came to the defense by launching an absolutely laughable commission to investigate the origins of COVID-19, headed by none other than Peter Daszak. Of the 12-member panel, six were among the signers of the original Lancet Letter, and one was a Facebook fact-checker who was sourced to reject the lab-leak theory. It’s hard to believe they would build a commission with such a bias, headed by a man who had been orchestrating an unproven narrative defending the lab before the US had any COVID-19 cases. With Daszak becoming a central suspect in the potential development of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, he has had to step back from his defensive advocacy on behalf of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, including being recused from the Lancet Origins Commission.
Now another member of the Lancet Commission, the Facebook Fact-Checker, Dr. Danielle Anderson, has assumed the role of Wuhan-defender. Over the
