Deborah Birx confirms efforts to SUPPRESS COVID-19 lab leak theory

Former White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx has confirmed that there were indeed efforts to suppress the theory that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) may have leaked from a laboratory in China’s Wuhan province.

“I think early on, people did take very definitive sides and it did divide along party lines. We’re still suffering from that four years later,” Birx told CNN‘s Kasie Hunt in an interview.

She cited the example of former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Robert Redfield. Early on in the pandemic, Redfield suggested that the virus could have started in a lab. But the media and other health officials dismissed his remarks.

“I do think it happened, if you look at what people said about Redfield and how they disparaged him as a scientist because he wanted to bring forward the lab leak potential. I think the reason he felt he needed to bring it forward … was to push against this [idea of] ‘it had to be this way.’ Because we didn’t know, and we knew we would never know,” Birx said.

“I mean, we knew that China was not transparent. So we were not going to get an answer. But that shouldn’t have held us back 4.5 years later from both ensuring that we protect against lab leaks and we protect that public.”

Birx also emphasized the reality of lab leaks and advocated for stricter rules and guidelines to prevent future incidents. “We have to put different rules and regulations and guidelines in place to protect the public. We can do that. We’ve done that before,” she said.

Fauci denies suppressing COVID-19 lab leak theory

Meanwhile, former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci denied suppressing the lab leak theory during a congressional hearing. He also mentioned the “uncertainty” about the origins of SARS-CoV-2 when he appeared before lawmakers.

“We’re at a place where we can definitely say we do not know if it was [from a lab] or zoonotic, from animals,” he told members of the House COVID-19 Select Subcommittee. “It’s our opportunity to really decide as a global community how we’re going to control laboratory experiments in a way that protects the public.”

Redfield also discussed the ongoing debate over the COVID-19 pandemic’s origins in a lengthy interview with Fox News contributor Dr. Marc Siegel. The former CDC director, himself a virologist, pointed out that COVID-19’s efficient human-to-human spread contradicted the behavior of earlier coronaviruses – insinuating potential manipulation of the pathogen.

“That’s not consistent with how other coronaviruses have come into the human species. It does suggest that there’s an alternative hypothesis that it went from a bat virus, got into a laboratory where … it was taught [and] educated. It evolved so that it became a virus that could efficiently transmit human to human,” said Redfield.

According to the erstwhile CDC head, he does not think it is plausible that the virus jumped from an animal to a human. He also expressed disappointment in what he described as a “lack of openness” within the scientific community to “pursue both hypotheses.”

Redfield also doubted the integrity of the World Health Organization, which concluded in a joint report with China released in March that a lab leak was “extremely unlikely. He argued the global health body was “too compromised” by Beijing’s influence to conduct a truly transparent investigation.

“Clearly, they were incapable of compelling China to adhere to the treaty agreements that they have on global health because they didn’t do that. Clearly, they allowed China to define the group of scientists that could come and investigate. That’s not consistent with their role.”
