China’s state-run Global Times on Monday called for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to investigate the undercover Project Veritas video that caught a Pfizer executive talking about intentionally mutating coronavirus strains to develop new vaccines.
The bombshell video fits neatly into Beijing’s ongoing effort to distract the world from investigating the origins of the Chinese coronavirus in Wuhan, China.
Project Veritas released an undercover investigative video last Wednesday that showed a Pfizer executive named Jordon Trishton Walker chatting about his company considering the possibility of using “directed evolution” to create new variants of the coronavirus so it could develop new vaccines against them.
Walker suggested Pfizer scientists may have already begun such experiments, but they are “going slow because everyone is very cautious.” Although he stressed that directed evolution is not the same thing as the now-infamous “gain of function” research that might have created Chinese coronavirus by enhancing less dangerous natural viruses into the far more dangerous and contagious disease that shook the world, he acknowledged that the public might see similar risks.
Walker, in fact, was inclined to believe that gain-of-function research in Wuhan unleashed the pandemic, but he thought directed evolution research by Pfizer would be a safer practice that could help the company remain profitable.
“You have to be very controlled to make sure that this virus that you mutate doesn’t create something that just goes everywhere. Which, I suspect, is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. It makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere. It’s bulls**t,” he said.
