The bat that flew away
Mostly claiming the old and very sick, there has been a notable trend of promoting iatrogenic treatment (where the cure was worse than the disease) including excessive use of invasive mechanical ventilators and ineffective and expensive Big Pharma drugs like Remdesivir to treat a pandemic allegedly created by a "bat" from Wuhan in China.

Combined with a dogmatic refusal from health bureaucracies and politicians to look at treatment protocols developed by seasoned medical experts and the many studies showing the efficiency of hydroxychloroquine and especially ivermectin, this led to in effect no real treatment protocol being implemented during 2020. This foot-dragging might have been done on purpose to increase the uptake of vaccines.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been instrumental in selling the treatment favoring pharmaceutical companies. But he may be their downfall too.
A top National Institutes of Health (NIH) official admitted on Wednesday that gain-of-function research had been done on bat Coronaviruses while EcoHealth Alliance, an American non-profit, funneled the NIH money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and purposely hid the extent of the funding.
The NIH cited a “limited experiment” to see if “spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model.” The lab mice infected with the modified bat virus “became sicker” than those infected with the unmodified bat virus.
This admission vindicated Republican senator Rand Paul, who has accused Fauci of blatantly lying during his testimony before Congress when questioned about the gain-of-function research. Gain-of-function research involves extracting viruses from animals and artificially engineering them in a laboratory so that they become more transmissible or deadly to humans.
Dr. Richard Ebright, biosafety expert and professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers University, has called Fauci’s denials “demonstrably false.”
Ebright told National Review that this project had “epitomized” the definition of gain-of-function research, which deals with “enhanced potential pandemic pathogen (PPP)” or those pathogens “resulting from the enhancement of the transmissibility and/or virulence of a pathogen”.
Moreover, EcoHealth failed to comply with its reporting responsibilities under the NIH grant. It now has five days to submit “any and all unpublished data” relating to this specific research.
The ‘bat soup’ narrative has evaporated
In the meantime, the official Covid narrative has become a moral disaster with one red line after the other being crossed, and supporting lies becoming less and less plausible.
The dilemma, especially for the German public service media, is palpable because the virus was designed in a laboratory and did not spread to humans munching on bats. The consequences of the notion that a global pandemic was deliberately designed by those who could profit from it, remains to be drawn.
In February 2020, German daily Merkur dismissed suspicions that the virus had escaped from a laboratory: “Coronavirus is fueling conspiracy theories”.
Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) also initially defamed scientists as “conspiracy theorists”, because they maintained that a virus had escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan. But they have switched to explaining the “myth”.
Was this virus created in the laboratory for peaceful purposes or as a biological warfare agent? And why did former US President Donald Trump not stick to his theory of the “Wuhan virus“? Perhaps because it was not a Chinese project – the French government had sponsored the lab.
The US Department of Defense originally also wanted to develop another hybrid virus, combining a variant of the existing SARS-1 and a spike protein found in bats. According to the BR, it was never approved. But thanks to the NIH, we now know that the research was carried out anyway.
‘It’s not a bioweapon’
Curiously, “all secret services” however agreed “that SARS-CoV-2 is not a biological weapon” although it certainly is an economic one. As TIME reported on Wednesday: “The evidence that the Coronavirus has escaped from the lab in Wuhan, is multiplying. For a long time hardly anyone in the West wanted to believe this was possible – because it did not fit into the worldview.” They conveniently omit that mainstream media had made sure to diligently and publicly smear and attack the “conspiracy theorists” with another “world view”.
In June 2021, the German government’s chief Corona adviser Christian Drosten found the laboratory thesis “totally unlikely” as did the “fact checkers”. Defame, denounce and discredit were once again the tools used against dissenters.
A perfect example of this was provided by a fact checker from the Tagesschau from February 2021 under the heading: “Hardly any evidence for laboratory theory”. Almost the entire article was nothing more than an attempt to deliberately demolish the work of an award-winning professor at the University of Hamburg.

UK greenhouses shut down due to high energy costs
LondonIn Great Britain, a particularly depressing facet of the crisis is now showing its first contours - and thus anticipating what is likely to happen in other European countries in the near future: because of the exploding energy prices, agriculture is being strangled and fresh produce has to be rationed.
Lisbon opens borders to all Portuguese speakers
LisbonNot only the German and Italian governments keep opening new paths for immigration. Portugal, too, has opened a Pandora's box and is paving the way for possibly millions of non-European immigrants to the EU – something which is not mentioned by the mainstream media.
Illegal immigration to Italy has reached its highest level ever

The German ambassador to Hungary, Julia Gross, provided an embarrassing example.
