Recent news reports have raised concerns about a laboratory in Montana, allegedly overseen by Anthony Fauci, engaging in experiments involving coronaviruses obtained from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. What adds to the gravity of the situation is the revelation that these experiments took place over a year before the emergence of COVID-19.
Compounding the issue, the Montana-based lab, under Fauci’s supervision, conducted these experiments using bats sourced from a dilapidated roadside zoo in Maryland. The bats procured from this zoo were then subjected to experiments involving viruses from the Wuhan lab, all transpiring prior to the onset of the COVID pandemic.
However, the most alarming aspect of this narrative lies in the involvement of Ralph Baric, affiliated with the University of North Carolina, who played a central role in the zoo-bat experiments. Baric is the same individual who imparted knowledge to the Wuhan lab on manipulating coronaviruses. Intriguingly, he also signed an agreement with Moderna, just before the advent of COVID, to collaborate on the development of an mRNA coronavirus vaccine.
The interconnectedness of these events raises questions about the ethical and scientific dimensions of the research conducted in various laboratories, highlighting potential links between disparate elements in the complex web of coronavirus-related studies.
