There’s abundant scientific evidence that the novel coronavirus was created in the laboratories of China by scientists of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Dr Lawrence Sellin, who has been investigating about the origins of this virus since onset of the pandemic, said in his interview with Vivek Sinha, Editor-in-Chief News Intervention that PLA created this coronavirus as part of its biowarfare program. Dr Sellin also said that U.S. virus research programs have been infiltrated by the PLA and CCP scientists.
Vivek Sinha: You have been investigating and researching the origins of COVID-19 for more than a year. Please tell us about the role of CCP, PLA and the US-based research institutions in the creation and the subsequent spread of this Coronavirus.
Dr Lawrence Sellin: I believe the COVID-19 virus was created in a laboratory and it was part of China’s biowarfare program. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has overall responsibility for that program, which is executed by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The biowarfare program consists of three levels. The first level is the core, secret military level. Layered on top of the core level are China’s universities and the ostensibly “civilian” research institutions and medical companies. Everyone needs to understand that, in China, there is no difference between military and civilian research. The fusion of those research and development sectors was mandated by the 2016 CCP Thirteenth Five-Year Plan. It is that middle layer, which has allowed the PLA to access international knowledge and skills, particularly from the U.S., all of which has contributed to the advancement of China’s virus research programs, including bioweapons development.
Vivek Sinha: What is the scientific evidence that proves that this virus was created inside a laboratory?
Dr Lawrence Sellin: One only needs to look at the structure of the COVID-19 virus to be convinced that it was made in a laboratory. It appears to be a composite virus with insertions that cannot be explained by natural evolution and sometimes defying the laws of biology and physics, like the series of four basic amino acids recently described in a new scientific publication by British professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr Birger Sorensen. For me, the “smoking gun” has always been the PRRA (proline, arginine, arginine, alanine) furin cleavage site, which does not exist in that form, in that location in any close COVID-19 bat coronavirus relative. It is a structure long known to increase transmissibility and lethality and Chinese military scientists published methods for inserting a furin cleavage site in 2013.
Vivek Sinha: Even though the world is grappling with the second wave of this pandemic, China is unusually calm and safe. How and why has China not been affected by the mutant version of Coronavirus?
Dr Lawrence Sellin: The CCP censors nearly all information regarding the effect of COVID-19 in China, which is undoubtedly affected in similar ways as other countries, but we simply do not have access to that information.
Vivek Sinha: Do you think there is a possibility that the CCP/PLA is directly involved in the creation and spread of mutant Coronavirus to different parts of the world? If yes, then what evidence can be given to the skeptics who still believe in the innocence of CCP and PLA?
Dr Lawrence Sellin: I do not have enough evidence to state that China is involved in the creation or spread of COVID-19 variants. Viruses always mutate. It is possible that the unnatural manipulation of the structure of COVID-19 led to mutations that made COVID-19 more contagious or lethal. One of the mutations of the B.1.617 variant, which is now significantly affecting India, is the P681R mutation of the artificially-inserted PRRA furin cleavage site, changing it from PRRA to RRRA. The two Rs (arginines) in the PRRA structure render its functionality in terms of transmissibility and lethality. The P (proline) is mainly structural, protruding the furin cleavage site out of the main body of the spike protein, making it more accessible to the human enzyme furin, thereby, triggering viral entry. Stated simply, three arginines (R) are more effective than two, which may be contributing to its greater infectivity.
Vivek Sinha: If the involvement of CCP and PLA is so blatantly clear shouldn’t the world rename this virus as “China Virus” something which former US President Donald Trump had said, but was dismissed as racist comment?
Dr Lawrence Sellin: I call it the CCP Virus and everyone should call it that or, perhaps more accurately the PLA virus. It should be publicly linked to the PLA’s biowarfare program.
Vivek Sinha: How did Dr Anthony Fauci, Dr Peter Daszak and Dr Kristian G Andersen (Scripps Research) help CCP/PLA in the development of a bioweapon in the form of Coronavirus? Do you think PLA scientists have infiltrated other US research institutions as well? If yes, then what should the US government do to cleanse its scientific research institutions of CCP/PLA moles?
Dr Lawrence Sellin: I contend that U.S. virus research programs are massively infiltrated by CCP and PLA scientists. What I call “scientific chain migration” began in the 1990s. CCP and PLA scientists established themselves in U.S. research centers, some even becoming U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Then they invited other CCP and PLA scientists. From that small start it has grown exponentially. Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has been responsible for nearly all of the coronavirus research funding, including funding CCP and PLA scientists working in the U.S. and collaborative research between people like Dr Peter Daszak and Dr Kristian G Andersen and China-based scientists either directly or indirectly connected to the PLA. It has become a deep and widespread problem because there is no national security accountability in the Fauci-funded research. One can also add research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense as an element of that problem. There needs to be a thorough investigation and a complete audit of all U.S. government funding that involves research affecting U.S. national security in which China has shown an interest, virus research being a prime example.
Vivek Sinha: When, according to you, did the PLA scientists begin infiltrating the US academic institutions, especially the virus research centres?
Dr Lawrence Sellin: As I explained in a previous answer, the CCP and PLA infiltration of U.S. virus research programs began in the Clinton Administration and accelerated thereafter.
Vivek Sinha: At the start of this pandemic several reputed journals such as Nature and Lancet published articles that vehemently denied that this virus was created in the laboratory and went on to explain that this was indeed a natural virus. Even WHO had several reports that gave a clean chit to China and the virologists at Wuhan Institute of Virology. Does this mean that CCP / PLA has infiltrated all premier institutions of the world that includes WHO and reputed research publications such as Nature and Lancet?
Dr Lawrence Sellin: Not always infiltration, but the CCP certainly has sympathizers and outsized influence in the WHO and major scientific journals such as Nature and The Lancet. The scientific literature is politically contaminated to a significant extent.
Vivek Sinha: Who are the key PLA military personnel /CCP scientists, who according to your investigation, were actively involved in the creation and spread of this virus around the world?
Dr Lawrence Sellin: The individual names are too numerous to identify in this interview. The CCP leaders have overall responsibility for China’s biowarfare program, which, as I said, was executed by the PLA. It has been mainly supervised by the Academy of Military Medical Sciences in coordination with the ostensibly “civilian” entities such as the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and the Chinese Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Falling under them and part of the biowarfare program are military-connected universities and research centers like the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
