CSIRO links with Wuhan
The CSIRO is now “correcting the record” on Australia’s ties to Wuhan’s Institute of Virology. Stephen Andrew asks what else are we not being told?
“It is astonishing that until recently, nobody at the CSIRO or Government thought it worth mentioning that, like Canada and the US, Australia also had many close ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and its research into bat-coronaviruses. After first denying Australia had ever worked on bats with Wuhan, CSIRO’s CEO, Judi Zielke was forced to admit in subsequent senate hearing testimony last month, that CSIRO and others, had in fact undertaken research on bat viruses with researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology”.
“Both Wuhan’s Director of the Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases, Professor Shi, and Head of the Bat Virus Infection and Immunity, Professor Zhou, were CSIRO-trained scientists who have worked at some of Australia’s top Bio-labs. Australian scientists collaborated on at least 10 joint research projects with Wuhan, one of which involved live bats taken from Southern Queensland. Another looked into why bats remained asymptomatic to viruses and whether they could still transmit those viruses to mammals with “lethal consequences”. Researchers at the University of Queensland, also published a joint paper with the Wuhan Institute last year, called “Origin and cross-species transmission of bat coronaviruses in China”.

“UQ’s Dr Hume Field was a co-author alongside the CSIRO trained Professor Shi, and the Head of EcoHealth Alliance, Peter Daszak. Dr Hume is also an EcoHealth Alliance science and policy adviser. EcoHealth Alliance is the US organisation closely tied to Wuhan, who after being given grant monies by Fauci’s NIH, funded “gain of function” research on bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute.
“I find it alarming to hear that “Gain-of-function” research is permitted in Australia. It is highly dangerous research where scientists basically identify an animal virus, which they think ‘COULD’, ‘MAYBE’, ‘possibly one day might’, evolve into a threat to humans. They take this virus, magnify its virulence and then ‘train it’ into becoming capable of human transmission, using genetic manipulations. They then ‘study’ the now lethal virus, ostensibly to learn how to stop it when, and IF, it undergoes the same process naturally.
“I’m no expert, but surely the real danger here is not that some random ‘animal virus’ may one day pose a threat to humans, but that one of these genetically enhanced supervirus will make their way out of a lab and into the community. It really makes you wonder whether scientists, high IQs aside –actually have any ‘common sense’? Maybe someone should do a research paper on that and the potential danger it poses to humanity.”
