The lab leak, the missing scientists, the cover-up: Piecing together ‘What Really Happened in Wuhan’
In her ‘What Really Happened in Wuhan’ documentary, award-winning journalist Sharri Markson detailed the evidence COVID-19 leaked from a Chinese lab.
Explosive revelations about the origins of COVID-19 have been revealed in a documentary by award-winning journalist Sharri Markson.
Ms Markson spent more than a year investigating the potential leak of the virus from a top-secret laboratory in Wuhan, China.
Her ‘What Really Happened in Wuhan’ documentary on Sky News Australia uncovered evidence a leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology first occurred in September, 2019.
The lab leak
On the September 12, 2019, the virus database at the Wuhan Institute of Virology was taken offline, and with it 22,000 coronavirus samples were gone.
That same day security was beefed up at the facility and a tender was issued to replace the air-conditioning system. There was later a communications blackout, with no cell-phone or signals activity.
The institute also went on a spending spree, purchasing an air medical waste incinerator and PCR equipment to test for coronaviruses.
“Listen the people that had the most access to the most intelligence, are telling you that the most likely origin of COVID-19, of the Wuhan virus was what happened… was a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” John Ratcliffe, former United States Director of National Intelligence, said.
“This is really most likely what happened and it’s more than just a possibility, it’s certainly a probability and it’s probably a certainty.”
Intelligence was received that three people working at the Wuhan Institute of Virology had fallen sick in October 2019, two months before the first official case was reported.
“What (former Secretary of State) Mike Pompeo and I put out is people became sick at the lab in October and with symptoms that became entirely consistent with what most people have experienced around the world from COVID-19,” Mr Ratcliffe said.
Mr Ratcliffe was quizzed on what he thought had happened to those employees.
“What I can say is that from the intelligence perspective, is we know that some of the people that were most involved, either infected or reporting on or whistle blowing on or trying to get answers and journalists report on, have been difficult to track down later, at least from my time there,” he said.
“And so I think that’s consistent with what the Chinese Communist Party does. The status of those individuals and why they’ve disappeared, I really can’t comment on that.”
One of those three researchers working at the Wuhan Institute of Virology was Huang Yanling, who disappeared from the institute’s website in early 2020.
Her social media presence also vanished. She has not been seen since.
Many believe she was infected with COVID-19 and was ‘patient zero’, despite Beijing’s denials.
Mr Ratcliffe said it quickly became clear there was a virus spreading in Wuhan.
“In late 2019 we have intelligence from both human intelligence sources and signals intelligence sources and other intelligence sources that were telling us that there was some sort of a problem in Wuhan,” he said.
Mr Ratcliffe said the Chinese Communist Party would not have silenced doctors, scientists and journalists if there was just a naturally occurring virus from someone who “ate a bat”.
“If there was really no blame here, if this was really just some naturally occurring virus because someone ate a bat from a wet market, China wouldn’t have done the things that they did,” he said.
“The Chinese Communist Party would not have shut down Wuhan. They would not have silenced doctors and scientists and journalists and disappeared some of them.”
“And so I think the time has come for the Biden administration to declassify additional information. Again, more evidence if you need it that the Chinese Communist Party officials acted badly, bullied international officials, covered up intelligence and reporting on this,” he said.
“There is more intelligence out there and I’d like to see it declassified because it will create additional pressure not just on Chinese Communist Party officials but others that still continue to deny that China is the bad actor here.”
The Military Games
A month after the evidence suggests the virus leaked from the institute, Wuhan hosted the Military Games, with more than 9,000 athletes from around the world in attendance.
The opening ceremony was held on October 18, 2019 and two weeks later, athletes begun returning home to more than 100 countries.
“I didn’t even know about the Military Games until someone from the army called me in December of 2020 and asked me if I could explain what happened at the Wuhan Military Games, and whether these people had fallen sick with an early strain, emerging strain of COVID,” David Asher, former COVID-19 investigator at the US State Department, said.
In the weeks and months after the event was held, reports begun to emerge of athletes becoming sick.
Mr Asher said data from the National Institutes of Health indicated COVID-19 was circulating in the United States as early as December.
“It is suspicious, I mean, we do see some indications in our own data that NIH has, that there was COVID circulating in the United States, certainly in an earliest month, as early as early December, possibly earlier than that,” he said.
“Some of these people who came back from these games were sick with something.”
Mr Asher said he was concerned of China’s biological warfare ambitions.
“My concern was that the Chinese were doing research in, as we learned later, quite uncontrolled circumstances that was most definitely related to biological warfare ambitions in the future,” he said.
“And that they had had an accident of a secretive program that they never wanted anyone to know about because it was a weapon and the weapon had gotten released errantly.
“It was like someone dropping a nuclear weapon out the back of a B52 and bombing some city and saying, whoops, we didn’t mean for that to occur.”
Miles Yu, former Principal China Advisor at the US State Department, said those athletes who returned from the Military Games had symptoms now known as coronavirus symptoms but no one was ever tested.
“All I know that people got sick, I believe the French often got sick, I believe they’re Germans, some Americans got sick too,” he said.
“But getting sick in Wuhan in that particular timeframe of the kind of symptoms that are very similar to what would later known to be coronavirus symptoms, that obviously deserve investigation.”
Wei Jinsheng, China’s most famous defector to the United States, said he “learned there was an unusual exercise by the Chinese government during the military games”.
“I thought that the Chinese government would take this opportunity to spread the virus during the military games as many foreigners would show up there,” he said.
He made his concerns known to close friend Dimon Lui at a dinner in Washington DC on November 22, 2019.
“He did say it was a coronavirus, ” she said.
“Among the Chinese diaspora there have been talks about it. And Wei being who he is, tends to be the recipient of many information. People seek him out.”
