Is the recent corona virus, COVID-19 a biological weapon? Francis A. Boyle
thinks so. He is a professor of international law at the University of
Illinois College of Law and the author of the book Biowarfare and Terrorism.
Professor Boyle drafted legislation for the biological weapons convention
that passed unanimously in both houses of the congress and passed into law by
 president George Bush Sr.

The media has reported that this virus originated in Wuhan, China.

Boyle claims the “smoking gun” is a study published in the journal
Antiviral Research on February, 10th, 2020, conducted by three scientists from
France and one from Montreal. In their genetic analysis of the Wuhan corona
virus they said that certain characteristics of this virus may provide it
with gain-of-function for efficient spreading in the human population
 compared to other coronaviruses.

Boyle states the term gain-of-function [GOF] is a tip-off that this is an
 offensive biological warfare agent.

An article from the journal of Science and Engineering Ethics titled
“Gain-of-Function Research: Ethical Analysis“ helps to explain this term.
The author states Gain-Of-Function research involves experimentation that
aims or is expected to increase the transmissibility and/or virulence of

This article also relays that in 2014 the administration of US President
Barack Obama called for a “pause” on funding (and relevant research with
existing US Government funding) of GOF experiments involving influenza, SARS,
and MERS viruses in particular. This pause applies specifically to
experiments that “may be reasonably anticipated to confer attributes …
such that the virus would have enhanced pathogenicity and/or transmissibility
 in mammals via the respiratory route.”

According to Science magazine U.S. officials grew uneasy after the publication
of new GOF papers and several accidents in U.S. biocontainment labs. The White
House expected the funding pause to end in 2015 with the adoption of a
Federal policy regarding gain-of-function studies. In December of 2017
 National Institutes of Health (NIH) lifted the ban on GOF research.

Boyle says gain-of-function means the virus is DNA engineered to be more
lethal and more infectious. And this type of GOF research is so dangerous it
can only be conducted in BSL-3 or BSL-4 laboratories. BSL is an acronym for
Bio Safety Level. Additionally Wuhan is home of the only declared BSL-4
 laboratory in China.

The Wuhan BSL-4 lab is also a specially designated World Health Organization
(WHO) research lab. Boyle thinks the WHO knows COVID-19 is a bio-weapon. This
lab opened in 2017 and is around 20 miles from the fish market that some
 claim to be the source of COVID-19.

On a side note, the Wuhan Center for Disease Control & Prevention is 900
meters from the fish market in question. This is noted in a pre-print of an
article from South China University of Technology titled “The possible
origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.” This center hosted animals in
laboratories for research purposes. In one of their studies 600 bats were
 captured. They conducted pathogen collection and identification.

The man who collected the bats for the center was known for collecting viruses
and described that he was once by attacked by bats. The blood of a bat got on
his skin. He knew the extreme danger of the infection so he quarantined
himself for 14 days In another accident, he quarantined himself again because
 bats peed on him.

Boyle says this corona virus is basically SARS. SARS is already a weaponized
version of a corona virus that has leaked out of that laboratory at least
twice before. Then it was given Gain-Of-Function properties which basically
means it can travel by air for at least six feet and is more transmittable
 and lethal.

The SARS virus – which between 2002 and 2004 infected 8,098 people and
killed 774 – escaped from high-level containment facilities in Beijing
multiple times, notes Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers

The journal naturemedicine published an article titled “A SARS-like cluster
of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence,” on
November 9th 2015. The research for this article was conducted at the a BSL-3
 laboratory at the University of North Carolina, in Chapel Hill.

Professor Boyle had previously condemned this laboratory for using GOF on MERS
(Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). The MERS virus is like SARS but more
lethal with a 33% fatality rate. The University of North Carolina was doing
 GOF work to make it more lethal.

In the article they admit they were doing GOF with SARS virus. Part of their
team was Zhengli-Li Shi who is listed as Key Laboratory of Special Pathogens
and Biosafety, Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences,
 Wuhan, China. You can see this clearly stated on the study.

Boyle says that China gave a grant to the University of North Carolina to get
their scientist in on this extremely dangerous NAZI type biological ware work.
So instead of stealing this technology, China bought it and their scientist
 took it back to the Wuhan lab.

Grants were also given by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious
Diseases whose director is Tony Fauci. Boyle accuses Fauci of lying about the
nature of COVI-19 covering up and doing damage control. NIH also supported
the University of North Carolina and the Wuhan scientists doing GOF with the
 SARS virus.

It also appears the North Carolina Lab got their cells from Fort Dietrich
which is the US major facility for R&D and stockpiling of biological weapons.
The scientists at the University of North Carolina made it clear they were
 increasing pathogenicity of SARS with their GOF activity.

The final article Professor Boyle cites is Archives of Virology 2010, volume
155. This is research done with an institute in Australia working with Wuhan
scientists to DNA genetically engineer SARS and HIV to make a weapon. The
Australian institute was awarded a grant from China to do this work with
their scientists. Here again, Boyle asserts, they bought the technology, they
 didn’t steal it.

Professor Boyle’s interpretation of these three articles is the Wuhan
scientists took these viruses from North Carolina and Australia back to the
BSL-4 in Wuhan and tried to genetically engineer it all together as a potent
biological warfare weapon. This would be a combination of SARS which is
 already a weaponized corona virus add to that GOF properties and HIV.

Scientists in India conducted an analysis of the corona virus and HIV was
clearly in there, says Boyle. He said the only other time we had seen a
biological weapon this dangerous released on the public was the Ameri-thrax,
 in October 2001. This came out of Fort Dietrich.

Boyle says we cannot trust the CDC on this issue or NIH or Tony Fauci. They
are fatally compromised to give any advice on corona virus. The WHO is up to
 their eyeballs in biological warfare and also cannot be trusted.

Whether or not the recent corona outbreak is a biological weapon there are
laboratories making dangerous viruses more deadly. These BSL-3 and BSL-4
laboratories leak deadly bio-weapons. They must be closed down. They are
unsafe, immoral, and illegal.
