An article highlighting credible research showing COVID-19 was artificially created in a lab has been wiped off the internet by a Chinese owned company. Luckily, it is archived here.
The scientific study in question, published in the Quarterly Review of Biophysics, claims that the coronavirus which causes COVID-19 was created in a lab. The claims by the Norwegian scientist Birger Sorenson confirm the suspicions of many who had already questioned the likelihood of this especially contagious virus emerging completely naturally.
The research shows, and this is supported by the longtime head of the British intelligence service, that the genetic makeup of the spike proteins on the virus appear to be artificially created.
The Forbes article said that:
“They also highlight the lack of mutation since its discovery, which suggest it was already fully adapted to humans.”
What has caused folks to scratch their heads is that Forbes, a source considered usually credible, wiped the article from their site completely and without explanation.
(Forbes is now majority owned by a Chinese investment firm, operating out of the Beijing controlled Hong Kong.)
While last month an article like this would have been perfectly legal, now it could be considered political “subversion.” Anything that discredits the authority of the Beijing communists is not allowed. Even hinting that the virus leaked from the lab as a result of communist incompetence is not going to fly in Hong Kong these days.
