  • The Facts:

    Chinese virologist Dr. Li Meng Yan, who recently fled China, claims she has evidence that proves COVID-19 was manmade.

  • Reflect On:

    What are the implications of this virus being manmade if it indeed is? What would this change about the narrative if the WHO has known this for some time?

Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist and whistleblower, claims she will soon be publishing proof that COVID-19 was manmade. She believes her evidence will be so clear that even non-scientists will be able to verify the data. Previously, Dr. Yan has said that the Chinese government and the World Health Organization knew about person-to-person transmission of COVID-19 much earlier than reported. She fled China to the US to continue exploring her research.

Dr. Yan told The Daily Mail in an interview:

“The genome sequence is like a human finger print’, and based on this you can identify these things. I will [use this] evidence to tell people why this has come from the lab in China, why they are the ones who made it.

Anyone, even if you have no biology knowledge, will be able to read it, and check and identify and verify it yourself.”

Dr. Yan was initially asked by a supervisor at the university she worked at in China to begin exploring a pocket of SARS cases that had popped up in Mainland China. At the time, it was looking like a new type of pneumonia.

“I was a medical doctor and PHD, I work with a bunch of the top experts in the world and because I had my two degrees from mainland China, I was the one assigned to do the secret investigation about new pneumonia in Wuhan.

During my investigation, what I found I reported to my supervisor, there was no response, because everyone was worried. So I kept silent, I knew I had to tell people because it’s urgent and on the account of a famous Chinese YouTuber in the US it was told to the world [that] China had discovered the Covid situation and [that] human to human transmission already exists.

I never thought this would happen when I did the secret investigation, I [thought] I would speak to my supervisor and they would do the right thing on behalf of the government.

But what I saw was nobody responding to that. People are scared of the government but this was something urgent, and Chinese New Year time, [I knew] this was a dangerous virus and all these things meant I could not keep silent, there are human beings and global health [at risk].”

Following her experience with the virus, and her desire to blow the whistle about what she claimed to be a coverup, she began to share what was going on. She claims that this was when her information was wiped from government databases and that her peers were ‘told to spread rumours about her’.

‘They deleted all my information and also they told people to spread rumours about me, that I’m a liar, I don’t know anything, I just killed a hamster in the lab. They will try to control my family and friends and then suddenly I don’t exist.”

Dr. Yan received her MD degree from XiangYa Medical College of Central South University (China), and PhD from Southern Medical University (China). Dr. Yan was based at a prestigious Hong Kong University, it was a key part of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) global epidemiology network.

The Chinese national health commission still denies the COVID-19 outbreak started in the lab in Wuhan, saying there is no evidence the new coronavirus was created in a laboratory. She also claims the co-director of a WHO-affiliated lab, Professor Malik Peiris, knew but didn’t do anything about it. However, if Dr. Yan indeed publishes her findings and it tells a different story, this could be a breakthrough in the COVID narrative many have suspected was eventually going to surface.

The Other Side of The Coin

According to fact-checker Politifact, who as of May 2021 have officially retracted this fact check as it was unfounded,

“The consensus of the scientific community and international public health organizations is that the coronavirus emerged from bats and later jumped to humans.”

Scientists worldwide have publicly shared the genetic makeup of the coronavirus thousands of times. If the virus had been altered, there would be evidence in its genome data.

But there isn’t. In March, several microbiology, infectious disease and evolutionary biology experts wrote in Nature — a respected scientific journal — that the genetic makeup of the coronavirus does not indicate it was altered.

Instead, scientists have two plausible explanations for the origin of the virus: natural selection in an animal host, or natural selection in humans after the virus jumped from animals

“Our analyses clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus,” the researchers wrote.

The Importance of Journalism

This is one of the challenges with traditional or mainstream media; it is complacent with narratives from government, and often does not seek to explore other or more controversial ideas that can have a big impact on the world. In many ways, true journalism is no longer done at the mainstream media or traditional media level, it’s simply reporting on what facts have been handed down from government or major world organizations.

To the traditional narrative, it’s nothing but baseless conspiracy theories that COVID-19 started in a lab. Multiple fact-checkers have stated that because various labs and governments have said there is no evidence it’s manmade, then it’s a done deal. But what about stories like this from Dr. Yan? Are they to be not considered?

Because of this, it becomes complicated when alternative media decides to follow up on leads, whistleblowers, or claims that there is more to a particular story, and publishes something about it. Without even making sweeping claims, fact-checkers are deployed to determine whether or not the information alternative media shares is indeed factual, using mainstream media or traditional media sources to debunk the alternative media claims. This of course leads to calling alternative media false and untrustworthy.

This is why the idea that COVID-19 could have been manmade has not been thoroughly discussed, because traditional media and fact-checkers already have claimed it’s not true, even without evidence other than major institutions claiming it wasn’t. It’s important to note no one is holding these major institutions accountable nor fact-checking them.

What Are The Implications?

Why does it matter? If COVID-19 was manmade, what would change about our current situation? Motive aside, it would show us that our desire to tinker with and create viruses that could harm people, perhaps for biological warfare or other reasons, can have undesired effects. Perhaps we do begin to question whether there is a greater motive. Was it released by accident? On purpose? Who would gain from this? If they created it, have they created others? Is there already a vaccine? Why hasn’t the public been told the truth?

Conversation.

This would be one of the biggest implications to me, the fact that people would now know that government lied, public health lied, and the media was complacent in holding no one accountable. This would lead us to question many other aspects of our society, who has humanity’s best interest at hand, and what we collectively wish to change as a result of knowing more about what we were purposefully not told.

The Takeaway

It has become imperative to watch multiple sources of media if you wish to explore what is going on in our world. The mainstream institutions of media lack both real journalism and contextual understanding of corruption that exists within government and major world organizations, leaving them out of touch when it comes to answering the world’s important questions.

As people, it is also important we become self-aware of how ideological we can become about our mainstream or alternative beliefs about the world. Truly staying open, dynamic and flexible in our thinking and making sense of the world is a crucial part of digesting media. These stories change how we operate on a day to day level in life. Greater responsibility is being called upon within people to engage with what is happening in our world so we don’t continue down a path of more authoritarian control and division.

We have a deep discussion about remaining self-aware and steering clear of ideological positions in a recent interview I did with Dr. Madhava Setty about 9/11, consciousness and more. Check it out here.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
