GX/2017 reported to create a high viral load in the brains and the lungs.



Last week, I reported that Dr. Anthony Fauci, then director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and a top presidential COVID adviser, failed to recall critically important facts about the origins of the pandemic policy or NIH-funded laboratory work that included gain-of-function studies at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.

In fact, Fauci profusely defended his previous testimony where he stated NIH does not fund gain-of-function research in Wuhan. He repeatedly played semantics with the definition of gain-of-function in an attempt to avoid conceding that NIH funded this dangerous research. But, as we enter into 2024, he had to admit that the lab-leak theory for the origins of the COVID pandemic was “credible”….as I have been asserting since February of 2020.

Now the news is breaking that underscores the lab leak theory is likely the only explanation, as Chinese scientists connected with its military are experimenting with creating a coronavirus strain that is 100% lethal to “humanized” mice.

The deadly virus — known as GX_P2V — attacked the brains of mice that were engineered to reflect genetic makeup similar to people, according to a study shared last week out of Beijing.

“This underscores a spillover risk of GX_P2V into humans and provides a unique model for understanding the pathogenic mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2-related viruses,” the authors wrote.

The deadly virus is a mutated version of GX/2017, a coronavirus cousin that was reportedly discovered in Malaysian pangolins in 2017 — three years before the pandemic. Pangolins, also called scaly anteaters, are mammals found in warm areas of the planet.

All the mice that were infected with the virus died within just eight days, which researchers noted was a “surprisingly” rapid death rate.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Chinese quietly immunize its critical population before releasing something like this on the world.

You ain't jokin'. As much as this virus mutates, there's no way to vax anyone for any amount of time. It will burn thru the urban pop like wildfire and require almost permanent extreme isolative quarantine. Like on an island several miles of the coast, no way in or out, sink anything that approaches.

'Disease X' focus at World Economic Forum sparks scrutiny
'It's like they're erotically excited about the prospect — they've already named the next pandemic,' said Ezra Levant.
    By Rebel News | January 18, 2024

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra discussed "Disease X" and how influential leaders at the World Economic Forum (WEF) are seemingly exuberant about the prospect of another pandemic.

"Disease X" reportedly is used to describe a currently unknown disease that has the potential to cause serious harm to humans across the globe. As reported by Global News, a professor of bioethics and global health at the University of Toronto said "Disease X is a hypothetical scenario where a very nasty disease, which is more powerful than COVID-19, emerges."

Speaking from the streets of Davos, Ezra said "The people here did so well in the last pandemic. You didn't. You were locked in your home. You lost your job. But the masters of the universe had the best years ever."

"The amount of wealth that say, Jeff Bezos of Amazon — I mean his wealth doubled during the pandemic because everyone had to buy stuff by delivery vehicle. And the tech sector boomed." ...

WATCH: I finally confronted Tedros over Covid and Disease X
“This is your chance to apologize to the world for your role during COVID, would you like to take it?” The World Health Organization Director-General asked accountability questions by Rebel reporter Avi Yemini at the elitist World Economic Gathering.

I’m here at the World Economic Forum meeting in Switzerland, where the world’s high and mighty gather to make the rules for the rest of us.

So, no surprise that Tedros Adhanom was here — he’s the head of the UN’s World Health Organization (WHO). He’s like the Dr. Fauci of the whole planet — deeply connected to the Chinese Communist Party, deeply responsible for some of the worst public policy responses around the world, from lockdowns to mandatory vaccines.

I asked him about those disastrous mistakes. And I also asked him about “Disease X,” which is all the rage here at the conference. That’s the name the WEF is giving to the next pandemic — they’ve already named it!

In fact, the WHO is scheduled to have a panel discussion called “Preparing for Disease X,” hosted by the Director-General and WEF Executive Committee member Shyam Bishen. ...

Tedros Admits WHO group used Disease X as a placeholder for CoronaVirus. WHO R&D Blueprint group wrote Disease X. We outed Jeremy Farrar and Virginia Benassi as the authors of the next five Disease Xs in March 2020. Corona, Influenza, Anthrax, Ebola, Zika, not necessarily in that order.

1.) The closest natural phylogenetic relatives have been found in bats in Laos.
2.) The Chi-coms are still working to backfill their pangolin wet market lie by genetically engineering a chimeric virus that did not exist at the time of the Covid-19/SARS2 outbreak in Wuhan (Fall, 2019).

The Chinese Communist Party owes the World reparations for a lab leak of Covid-19/SARS2.  The Chi-coms owe pangolins an apology for besmirching their reputation.

Host susceptibility and structural and immunological insight of S proteins of two SARS-CoV-2 closely related bat coronaviruses

Abstract

The bat coronaviruses (CoV) BANAL-20-52 and BANAL-20-236 are two newly identified severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) closely related coronaviruses (SC2r-CoV) and the genome of BANAL-20-52 shares the highest homology with SARS-CoV-2. However, the risk of their potential zoonotic transmission has not been fully evaluated. Here, we determined their potential host susceptibility among 13 different bat species and 26 different animal species, and found that both might have extensive host ranges, indicating high zoonotic transmission potential. We also determined the cryo-EM structures of BANAL-20-52 and BANAL-20-236 S proteins at pH 5.5 and the complex of BANAL-20-236 S1 and Rhinolophus affinis ACE2, and found that both trimeric S proteins adopt all three receptor binding domains (RBDs) in “closed” conformation and are more compact than SARS-CoV-2. Strikingly, the unique sugar moiety at N370 of bat SC2r-CoVs acts like a “bolt” and crosses over two neighboring subunits, facilitating the S proteins in the locked conformation and underpinning the architecture stability. Removal of the glycosylation at N370 by a T372A substitution substantially enhances virus infectivity but becomes highly sensitive to trypsin digestion at pH 5.5, a condition roughly mimicking the insectivorous bat’s stomach digestion. In contrast, WT S proteins of SC2r-CoVs showed considerable resistance to trypsin digestion at pH 5.5, indicating that the highly conserved T372 in bat CoVs might result from the selective advantages in stability during the fecal-oral transmission over A372. Moreover, the results of cross-immunogenicity among S proteins of SARS-CoV-2, BANAL-20-52, and BANAL-20-236 showed that A372 pseudoviruses are more sensitive to anti-S sera than T372, indicating that immune evasion might also play a role in the natural selection of T372 over A372 during evolution. Finally, residues 493 and 498 of the S protein affect host susceptibility, and residue 498 also influences the immunogenicity of the S protein. Together, our findings aid a better understanding of the molecular basis of CoV entry, selective evolution, and immunogenicity and highlight the importance of surveillance of susceptible hosts of these viruses to prevent potential outbreaks. ...

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Why the WHO Pandemic Treaty Threatens Freedom of Expression
Opinion by Giorgio Mazzoli  •  Feb. 16, 2024

Despite the immense influence wielded by the United Nations, attention to its rumblings is typically rare outside the international crisis du jour. Breaking from this trend, the ongoing negotiation of a pandemic treaty at the World Health Organization has captured the global spotlight long before reaching its anticipated conclusion. Yet, despite this heightened attention, the public debate on how to head off future pandemic threats has largely overlooked the potential impact of the WHO Pandemic Agreement on fundamental freedoms, notably freedom of expression.

Underway since March 2023, the pandemic accord negotiations seek to establish legally binding rules to enhance international cooperation and to strengthen the role of the WHO in preventing, preparing for, and responding to future pandemics.

To purportedly achieve these objectives, the draft text currently under consideration would commit parties to “tackle” such things as misleading information, misinformation, or disinformation, without offering a definition for these terms or specifying how this would be done. It would also require the “management” of so-called “infodemics,” defined as “too much information, false or misleading information, in digital and physical environments during a disease outbreak” causing “confusion” as well as “mistrust” in health authorities. These provisions cast a looming shadow of censorship that should alarm anyone who values open discourse and transparent governance. ...
