We reported in April 2020 that ‘bat doctor’ Dr. Shi, was using money from the US in experiments involving the bat coronavirus in Wuhan.
We were the first to uncover the bat doctor and we uncovered in April 2020 that Dr. Shi was maintaining an inventory of bat viruses in China as well as was in the process of developing vaccines to combat the viruses.
The Telegraph now has reported on the Chinese efforts to infect bats in the caves in China to use as future inoculations against the coronavirus. The Telegraph reported, via Yahoo.
Wuhan scientists were planning to release enhanced airborne coronaviruses into Chinese bat populations to inoculate them against diseases that could jump to humans, leaked grant proposals dating from 2018 show.
New documents show that just 18 months before the first Covid-19 cases appeared, researchers had submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles containing “novel chimeric spike proteins” of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China.
They also planned to create chimeric viruses, genetically enhanced to infect humans more easily, and requested $14 million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) to fund the work. [A US Defense agency that does R&D on emerging technologies.]
