There are currently two competing theories about COVID-19's origin. First, COVID occurred in nature, most likely from a bat. Second, COVID-19 could have been released accidentally from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as scientists there were conducting 'gain of function' research on bat coronaviruses.
Gain of function research is a scientific process to speed up variants of viruses in hopes of learning how to prevent a potential pandemic.
The lab leak theory was quickly 'debunked' by both scientists and the corporate media at the very beginning of the pandemic despite no actual evidence that the coronavirus occurred in nature. Even now, 17-months after the first known cases of COVID-19 in China no one has been able to find the bat in question or any other alternative origin source.
Additionally, the Wall Street Journal reported this weekend three scientists from the Wuhan Institute Of Virology were hospitalized for an unknown illness in November 2019, before COVID was reported by China. Is this COVID's origin?
But, China hasn't allowed a full investigation into the research facility.
Now even the great Dr. Fauci is beginning to question the origins of the coronavirus. Dr. Fauci's reversal comes after he said, 'everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates (COVID) evolved in nature and then jumped species,' to infect humans one year ago.
Earlier this month, Dr. Fauci says he's not convinced of that theory anymore. Fauci said, 'I think we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we continue to find out to the best of our ability what happened.'
This isn't the first Fauci flip flop. He's flip-flopped on masks and he continuously moves the goalposts after every COVID milestone constantly downplaying their significance.
This means one thing, Dr. Fauci has become a politician.
