Professor Jeffrey Sachs is pretty convinced COVID-19 came out of US lab biotechnology
The chair of the Lancet Covid Commission, Professor Jeffrey Sachs, whose recent report into the global mismanagement of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic we covered in this post, has used an online interview to explain his views on the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
Professor Sachs says:
He is “pretty convinced [COVID-19] came out of US lab biotechnology”
That risky US-supported research may have led to millions of deaths
He thinks it is very possible that SARS-CoV-2 originated through dangerous virus research gone awry
There were several kinds of experiments of manipulation of the genes of dangerous viruses
He came to the conclusion that powerful actors were preventing a real investigation from taking place
There is extremely dangerous research taking place with little accountability
“It’s a blunder in my view of biotech, not an accident of a natural spillover”
That there is dangerous virus research taking place without public oversight
He believes that there is clear proof that the NIH and many members of the scientific community have been impeding a serious investigation of the origins of COVID-19
He has come to the conclusion that there is extremely dangerous biotechnology research being kept from public view
“We don’t have definitive evidence of either hypothesis. But what we do have is definitive evidence that officialdom has tried to keep our eyes away from the lab creation hypothesis.”

Emily Kopp, USRTK: US Inspector general closed lab leak theory probe 21 months ago
The news that the chief American collaborator of the Wuhan Institute of Virology [Peter Daszak] received renewed funding from the National Institutes of Health sparked indignation this week.
The watchdog that ensures the integrity of federal health programs closed a brief probe of EcoHealth Alliance 21 months ago.
Despite several appeals from congressional Republicans to Health and Human Services Inspector General Christi Grimm to investigate the controversial pandemic preparedness group, the office’s probe concluded in January 2021, after about four months had elapsed.
U.S Right to Know received redacted copies of all of the documents belonging to HHS that are relevant to the investigation into EcoHealth Alliance, according to the HHS Freedom of Information Act office.
