According to a recent Tippinsights study, 44% of Americans believe the coronavirus was developed in a lab.
According to The Gateway Pundit reports in early April 2020 says in 2014, Chinese doctor Shi Zhengli was part of a team that worked on a coronavirus study with US doctors before the DHS shut it down because it was too hazardous. Dr. Shi resumed her coronavirus study in Wuhan, China, after the US research initiative was shut down.
Doctor Shi Zhengli of China was part of a team that published an article in Nature Medicine in 2015, which included Doctor Ralph S. Baric. They covered bat coronaviruses that have the potential to infect humans in the paper. In 2015, the paper was published.
The US Department of Health and Human Services defunded their project, and this report was published shortly after that (HHS).
In 2014, the HHS wrote a letter to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, announcing that the program will be defunded. In the letter, Dr. Ralph S. Baric was mentioned.
After the work in the United States ceased, the Chinese continued with the project, doing research and development at the Wuhan Virology Center in Wuhan. According to Shi Zhengli’s studies and resume, they were able to isolate the virus in the lab and were actively working with the species-to-species transmission. It’s also worth noting that we had good intelligence on a viral leak in a high-security Chinese virology R&D lab in 2017, which resulted in the SARS virus spreading and killing people.
This information refutes the hypothesis that COVID-19 is a variant that spontaneously mutated in a bat in the wild and subsequently hopped to a human after they ate a tasty bowl of bat soup.
COVID-19 was already in a lab, according to all published research papers related to this project dating back to 2014.
It’s difficult to say if the leak was deliberate or unintentional.
In 2017, a similar occurrence occurred in China, which sickened eight individuals and killed one. It all started when two workers at a Chinese CDC lab isolated and tested a SARS virus in vitro and in vivo independently. During one of these sessions, scientists transferred a previously unknown SARS virus from a BSL-4 high-containment laboratory to a low-safety diarrhea research lab where the two were working. The virus inactivation process apparently failed, and both were infected in the lab before spreading to other people outside of the facility.
On April 8, 2020, we noted that in November of 2019, the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, announced that it was seeking people for ecological research of bat migration and virus transmission.
We now know that Dr. Shi was still working on the coronavirus at the time based on her resume and papers: Via Yaacov Appelbaum.
According to National Review:
On December 24, 2019, the Wuhan Institute of Virology posted a second job posting. The translation of that posting includes the declaration, “long-term research on the pathogenic biology of bats carrying important viruses has confirmed the origin of bats of major new human and livestock infectious diseases such as SARS and SADS, and a large number of new bat and rodent new viruses have been discovered and identified.”
What transpired between January and now is largely unknown. However, we now have more proof that China has been working on the China coronavirus at a Wuhan facility for years.
We also have proof of deaths caused by the lab coronavirus in 2017.

But this does not bode well for Dr. Tony Fauci, who was funding virology research in Wuhan, China.
After the virus hit America, he shut down the US economy and prohibited the use of a proven drug.
The Covid-19 virus is riddled with unresolved questions. While some have treatment and prevention implications, others may have a far-reaching impact on the global order. Is it natural or artificial? Was it released or did it manage to getaway? Was it on purpose or by chance? These are some of the questions surrounding the Covid-19 virus that the world is debating.
Little is known about the virus itself more than fifteen months after it was proclaimed a pandemic. TechnoMetrica ran a TIPP Poll asking Americans what they believe about the virus’s origin and propagation, just before the Wall Street Journal broke the astounding story (more on that later).
Here’s where the virus is thought to have started in the United States:
- 44% believe it was developed in a lab
- 22% think it came from animals
- 11% think it’s a naturally occurring virus
- 8% think the virus came to be as a result of human living habits
- 16% were unsure about its origins
Aside from how or where the virus originated, the mystery of how it infected so many millions of individuals around the world has persisted.
There is 44 percent of those who believe the virus was created by humans.
- 54% believe it was intentionally released from the lab
- 32% think it was accidentally released
- 14% were not sure about how it got outside the lab
The newest revelations lend support to the theory that the virus was created in a laboratory.
Staff at the city’s Institute of Virology sought hospital treatment for Corona-like symptoms weeks before the first cases of Corona infections were officially registered in Wuhan, according to the Wall Street Journal story.
Corona and influenza share many of the same symptoms. Some speculate that the flu outbreak among the employees was a seasonal sickness. However, since the outbreak of the pandemic, the Chinese establishment’s approach has cast a pall over the situation.
Given China’s lack of transparency on all data, news, and information related to the virus, this piece of news simply adds to the confusion. It adds to the impression that China is withholding or suppressing critical information on purpose.
The virus has been a contentious issue in the United States from its inception. The pandemic has divided our country as well as altered our routines.
Democrats, divided along party lines:
- 32% believe it was developed in a lab
- 30% think it came from animals
- 13% think it’s a naturally occurring virus
- 11% think the virus came to be as a result of human living habits
- 14% were unsure about its origins
Republicans, on the other hand, have a more forceful response. In terms of the virus’s origins,
- 63% believe it was developed in a lab
- 12% think it came from animals
- 8% think it’s a naturally occurring virus
- 6% think the virus came to be as a result of human living habits
12% were unsure about its origins
There is some evidence to support the hypothesis that the virus was created in a lab.
For many, the news that US officials had obtained access to papers written by Chinese military scientists discussing weaponizing the coronavirus (five years before the pandemic) cemented the issue. The documents, according to ‘The Australian,’ address “a new era of genetic weapons” and the release of a “artificially controlled” virus that might cause the “enemy’s medical system to collapse.”
With such damning evidence, it’s no surprise that nearly a quarter of Americans believe the virus was deliberately spread. Nearly a fifth, on the other hand, does not believe in any of the hypotheses.
The following is a summary of the virus’s origins and how it spread to humans:
- 23% lab-grown and intentionally released
- 22% came from animals
- 14% lab-grown, but accidentally released
- 11% came about naturally
- 8% is a product of human living habits
- 6% from lab, not sure
- 16% not sure
Leading scientists have joined governments around the world in calling for a thorough probe into the virus’s origins and how it became a pandemic. What is revealed could have a significant influence on the world as we know it.
