There is no scientific evidence to prove that the global elite intentionally spread the virus.
The emergence of SARS-CoV-2 was first observed in the city of Wuhan, China. The joint study was conducted over a 28-day period from 14 January to 10 February 2021 in Wuhan. In WHO’s Report, a joint international team led by international and chinese scientists and experts, assessed the likelihood of different pathways for the introduction of the virus to the human population.
The Report states that the joint team conducted a qualitative risk assessment, considering the available scientific evidence and findings for each of the possible pathways of emergence. In the Report, the team indicates that the virus most likely spread from one animal to another until it spilled over to humans. The team considered other possible pathways, such as a direct spread from an original host animal to humans- a scenario it considered possible or likely and that it was transmitted through a supply chain for frozen goods- a scenario it considered possible. The team deemed the possible pathway that the virus leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan as "extremely unlikely".
The Report has not been able to zero in on what the actual origin of the virus is, but has shown evidence that it likely originated naturally and was not “engineered’. The Report recommends that further research and in-depth studies need to be conducted so as to be able to identify the source of the virus.
BBC and The New York Times report that many have questioned the findings of the Report and that scientists have criticised the team for not looking at the possible natural or laboratory leak pathways of the virus seriously enough.
“As far as WHO is concerned, all hypotheses remain on the table. This report is a very important beginning, but it is not the end. We have not yet found the source of the virus, and we must continue to follow the science and leave no stone unturned as we do,” said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “Finding the origin of a virus takes time and we owe it to the world to find the source so we can collectively take steps to reduce the risk of this happening again. No single research trip can provide all the answers,” he said.
That said, it is clear from the above that the theory of the global elite spreading the virus to gain power and profit, has no scientific basis.
