A report from Sky News Australia released on Sunday exposed the fact that the Wuhan Institute of Virology did in fact keep live bats on their premises, in direct contradiction of statements from the World Health Organization who has continually maintained a stance that such allegations are a baseless conspiracy.
The revelation came out the same day that the WHO changed their tune to acknowledge that “all hypotheses,” could still be proven when it comes to discovering COVID’s origins. This statement is a direct challenge to the Chinese Communist Government who have stalwartly maintained that they are not responsible for the global pandemic and have fought hard to shoot down opponents who try and claim that the virus was made or modified by humans.
Sky News Australia was able to obtain official video footage from the Chinese Academy of Sciences which was showcasing the new biosafety level four laboratory back in May of 2017, the video addresses and showcases existing security protocols in the case of accidents.
The video shows that bats were held in cages on the premises, as well as video of a scientist feeding the bats worms. There are also interviews with the Wuhan lab’s leading scientists.
The animal room of the Wuhan lab holds a variety of species, to include SARS-CoV-2 work with primates.
But Peter Daszak, a member of the WHO investigative team claimed that it was a conspiracy tactic to suggest that the Wuhan Institute of Virology kept bats, and further added that there was no evidence to support that allegation.
In December of 2020 he claimed in explicit terms that bats were not sent to the Wuhan lab, rather that bat samples are collected in the field and then the bats are released in the same place that they were caught.
It is “extremely unlikely” the coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, and is more likely to have jumped to humans from an animal, W.H.O. investigators said Tuesday. https://t.co/wush1l4IjD

Other WHO members were quick to join him in downplaying possible links that would expose the Wuhan laboratory as the origin center of COVID-19.
Meanwhile, at the G7 summit, WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhamnom Ghebreyesus said that China needed to offer more “transparency” regarding continued investigations, and suggested that Beijing had not been very forthcoming in the past.
Tedros added that the lab leak hadn’t yet been ruled out, echoing the concerns of several others who remain critical of China’s usual tactic of barricading investigations carried out on its own soil.
“Isn’t it strange that this once-in-a-century bat coronavirus pandemic just happened to emerge within a few miles of China’s biggest laboratory researching bat coronaviruses? Shouldn’t we at least look at that lab?” https://t.co/qjtCT61DGI

Tedros estimates that the disease has claimed the lives of 3.75 million globally, with 174 million more having contracted it.
