The NIH has been funding gain-of-function research [quietly moved underground (think: Wuhan, China) due to pressures by both the scientific community worldwide as well as during the Obama administration--the move to Wuhan may have coincided with Obama's successful attempt to have the entire program shut down]. Lead by Dr. Anthony Fauci, currently Donald Trump's leading expert on the outbreak and considered to be a true 'American Hero' due to his extraordinary expertise in the field of virology, the work continued the results of which we all are living through, now.
The snag for Fauci and those maintaining that COVID-19 came from the wild is that it's clear that a particular FURIN CLEAVAGE SITE was artificially inserted during gain-of-function experimentation. No other virus in nature has managed to develop so perfectly a method for infecting human beings and there is no chance whatsoever that this was not engineered in the lab. COVID-19 has both intracellular and extracellular proteases, the enzymes inside cells as well as the bloodstream, that help to activate the virus allowing it to majestically fuse with the body's ACE2 and CD147 receptors. There are literally dozens of ways that the virus can attack the human body, many of which still have not been reported to the public.
Chris Martenson over at Peak Prosperity breaks this all down in a clear and precise fashion. Please watch.
