Lab Leak?

Nathan Rich has some great videos explaining the Fort Detrick lab leak theory, see here, here, and here.  I want to capture some of the sources for my reference.

In June of 2019 the CDC audited Fort Detrick.  They subsequently issued a report detailing their findings.  The report indicates 2 breaches of toxins occurred.

The below excerpt indicates improper containment in ABSL rooms, the "A" designates it as room where animals are housed and studied.  There was risk that contaminated air from this room could expose people without respiratory protection outside of the room.

This section discusses improper waste disposal coming from the animal test room.  The room includes NHPs, which stands for Non Human Primates.

On June 30, 2019, a respiratory illness led to the death of 3 people and sickness of 63 people including staff at a senior living center located about 60 miles from Ft Detrick.  The cause could not be identified.  Story from ABC News here.

July 2019, a second assisted living facility is reporting 25 cases of a mystery respiratory illness.  This is about 54 miles from Fort Detrick.

On July 18, 2019 Fort Detrick is shut down.

August 1, 2019 marks the start of a surprise outbreak of vaping related illness with symptoms quite similar to covid.  It hits men harder, as does covid.

September 2019, blood samples from Italians are drawn and subsequently test positive for Covid antibodies.  These are the earliest human samples that have tested positive for Covid.

October 18-27, 2019, a multi-sport competitive event called the World Military Games is held in Wuhan, China.  Many US military personnel are reporting that they were sick with Covid like symptoms.  A French athlete has been told by doctors that she likely had Covid.  She reports that many others seemed sick.  They were not tested and many athletes have been directed not to speak to the media.

November 2019, US intelligence warns Trump, NATO, and Israel about the coronavirus outbreak occurring in China.  This is weeks before anyone had presented themselves at a hospital in China for Covid.

December 10, 2019, Wei Guixian, a shrimp vendor in Wuhan, developed what she thought was a cold and went to a clinic for treatment.  The treatment was not effective and she returned to a hospital.  She was informed that others had been to the hospital with similar symptoms.  She is the first identifiable person infected in China as far as I know.

December 13, 2019 through January 17, 2020 blood samples are collected in the US which would later be tested for Covid antibodies.  1.4% would test positive.  Extrapolating this % to the full US population suggests 4.7M people had Covid antibodies at this time.

January 13, 2020, 2 days before China had awareness that Covid was human to human transmissible, the Moderna vaccine is already developed.

Note: May update occasionally as new information comes to light.
