“Sadly, It Starts With Two Lies”: Peter Daszak’s Latest Wuhan Screed Shredded

Peter Daszak, the guy who landed a lucrative NIH contract to study bat COVID in Wuhan four months before the Obama administration banned gain-of-function research on US soil, has penned yet another screed in The Lancet in an obvious attempt to put a ‘science’ bow on the natural origin theory, while once again dismissing the possibility of a lab-leak.

Recall Daszak was behind a now-infamous February 2020 Lancet letter signed by 27 authors – many of whom have since distanced themselves or retracted – which claims COVID-19 could have only evolved in nature, and that the lab-leak hypothesis was virtually impossible. Daszak has since ‘recused’ himself from the Lancet‘s COVID-19 commission due to his overwhelming conflict of interest, but has still been provided a platform to reiterate his defense.
