US intelligence community says COVID-19 not ’man-made’

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence said on Thursday that the coronavirus was neither manmade, nor genetically modified. The ODNI, however, also said that investigations are currently ongoing to accurately determine the origins of the outbreak. The intelligence community would also continue to rigorously examine information and intelligence in order to determine the same.

If memory serves me correctly, the argument, at least the one I am making, is it came out of a lab. Yes, its a naturally occurring virus, but it was being tested and experimented with in a lab.

If it does not have 4 protein molecules which living viruses have, then surely it was manufactured and was made to spread across the World quicker than a living virus would have spread naturally.

Man made and let out of a lab are very different things

1. Why people getting mad about the fact there is an investigation on if it was man made. 2. Just wondering if anyone thinks the virus was released from the lab instead of accidentally?

That's wasn't the answer they should seek. If course it's not man made but it was being studied at P4 and obviously that's where it came from. Why do they always deflect to fulfill a narrative?

In other words, the Coronavirus was man made.

Some of us know, it was passed by Bats because we are encroaching on wildlife’s habitats year on year. Trump likes blaming someone or some other countries. His fault because he didn’t want to do a lockdown because he wanted to protect the stock markets and his re-election chances

Not genetically modified. Could they tell if it was just passed from animal to animal in a lab until they got a result they wanted? Like the immunosuppressive characteristics with SARS CoV? Like creating a new dog bread or like what Mendel did with peas? How could they tell? Have they seen every possible virus or rna combination. I’ll bet the geneticists that made that claim is right now telling himself “I hope they don’t know I just made a bunch of bs.” I don’t believe he could possibly know. Oh he’s an expert. Right doesn’t mean sh*t when we just don’t have the knowledge or tech to determine such a thing. Give me a break!

Yeah propably not... but we can't say the virus wasen't being stufied at the lab and potenvially escaped... in fact it's very lickly.. becuse we have evidance to suggest that right before the pandemic the lab was reserching bat's immune system.. (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11337823/wuhan-lab-leak-coronavirus-job-advert-china/) and there are a lot more evidance and... as time passes the more evidance keep poping up... it's lickly the virus escaped... there are a few theories about how and when... and for hoe long the ccp knew... we don't know.....

Oh well...if the CIA says something you know you gotta believe it. No really, this belief is mandatory of all news outlets.

That's like your kid coming home from school with a black eye and you're trying to find out if he got hit with a right or a left, instead of finding out who did it, and holding him (or her/they/them) accountable.

Since finding out about m ku.ltra, pap.ercli.p, etc etc etc, anything said by any alphabet soup Intelligence agency should be taken as a blatant lie. There covid was patented by BILL GA.TES, you know? The thief that stole the DOS code to make billions and whos parents were E.U.GENI.CISTS and not surprisingly, the apple didn't fall far from the tree either. This plandemic is just a smoke screen for the bs that's too come. Say goodbye to all our civil liberties and freedoms, USA....

If you thought these articles were deflecting, wait till you read this: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-china-lab/china-lab-rejects-covid-19-conspiracy-claims-but-virus-origins-still-a-mystery-idUSKCN22A0MM This article made me sad--Reuters has always been one of the more reliable mainstream outlets. This guy literally blames everything from climate change to "prejudices and bias". The only time he uses the word "theory" without "conspiracy" in front of it is when he's referring to the most likely explanation--which is buried inbetween references to conspiracy theories, of course--and the guy he's interviewing (Yuan Zhiming, the head of the lab) STILL denies it outright.

Is this the same intelligence community that insisted Donald Trump was elected because of Russian trolls?

The reason MSM outlets are focusing on THIS particular conspiracy theory is because it allows them to implicitly avoid addressing the obvious reality--that this came directly from the only BSL4 lab in China, less than a quarter mile away from ground zero, from a lab that's famous for doing bat coronavirus research--research that is literally led by a woman to whom people refer as the "batwoman" (Shi Zhengli, who initially admitted that she was concerned that this virus came from her lab but has since denied any genomic similarity to any of the MANY samples being stored at the Wuhan Institute of Virology). The probabilistic likelihood this virus originated from literally anywhere else is incredibly small, and anyone who demands proof of this should be tasked with providing a more likely explanation. Proof isn't required when common sense will do the job just fine. This isn't a lawsuit, and no one is on trial (yet)--but this is tantamount to the only guy with a car demanding proof that HE'S guilty of the hit and run.

No shit Sherlocks. No one said it was man made. It was man-released. Also it was definitely man altered. They even released public scientific documents on how their scientists were experimenting with the virus.
