This is the fourth part of a series of reports based on previously unpublished investigations into the origins of SARS-COV-2 by William Bostickson and Yvette Ghannam, which took place in 2020. This report also contains novel insights from ongoing joint investigations with Gilles Demaneuf from the DRASTIC collective in 2021, but it is worth noting t...

An Analysis of the Project DEFUSE proposal submitted by EcoHealth Alliance [EHA] to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA] on 3/27/2018; DARPA rejected the proposal, ultimately choosing 5 other groups for its PREEMPT initiative. The proposal describes, in great detail, experiments which could have directly resulted in the SARS-CoV-2...

These notes aim to clarify how US intelligence first learnt of an outbreak in Wuhan in the second week of November 2019, and how that intelligence progressed from a 'situation report' to a 'formal assessment' before reaching a range of military and civilian consumers in December 2019, with a intermediate disclosure to key military partners at the e...

Twenty months and an estimated 12 mln deaths after its initial outbreak in Wuhan, the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic are still undecided. Two main plausible scenarios are in contention: a standard zoonotic spillover with or without an intermediate host, and a research-related accident. For the sake of clearer debate, this paper reviews some erro...

Two hypotheses of the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic exist: a natural zoonosis or a laboratory-related event. An investigation of the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic needs to be conducted to a science-based resolution of these competing hypotheses. Until new evidence is found, an investigation of the pathway for the origin of COVID-19 should proce...

The G7 leaders recently released a joint statement calling for “a timely, transparent, expert-led, and science-based WHO-convened Phase 2 COVID-19 Origins study including, as recommended by the experts’ report, in China.” Because failing to comprehensively investigate pandemic origins puts everyone and future generations at unnecessary risk, we cal...

Various representations were offered during the China-WHO joint-team visit about the routine testing of employees at some Wuhan labs. The final China-WHO joint-team report used these representations as an argument to dismiss the possibility of the COVID-19 outbreak being caused by an early infection in a Wuhan institution involved in BatCov researc...

We call on the World Health Organization and its Executive Board to fully address the recommendations and questions raised in this letter as a critical step toward protecting everyone on earth and future generations. As terrible as COVID-19 has been, this is almost certainly not the last pandemic we will face -- and possibly not even the worst. Ta...

Reaction to the China-WHO joint study team report. In our previous open letter, we outlined our fears that the joint international committee/Chinese government team “did not have the mandate, the independence, or the necessary accesses to carry out a full and unrestricted investigation into all the relevant SARS-CoV-2 origin hypotheses.” Having re...

This paper intends to describe the research platform at the Zhengdian Gold Industrial Park in Wuhan, with a particular focus on the Wuhan Institute of Biological Products, a vaccine development and production centre which is situated next door to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This document is structured as a collection of notes that are typical...

As strong supporters of the WHO and its mission, we believe it must be made clear that any findings of the joint committee, while potentially useful to a limited extent, represent neither the official position of the WHO nor the result of an unrestricted, independent investigation. For this reason, we believe it is essential that the contours of a...

The purpose of this Wuhan outbreak scenario is not to try to read the tea-leaves, but first and foremost to challenge some common assumptions by exploring some possible chain of events. It is just one scenario out of many - even if it is a top scenario.

On the 12th Sep 2019, the main database of samples and viral sequences of the Wuhan Institute of Virology went offline. Eventually every single of the 16 virus databases managed by the WIV was taken offline. Here we show how these databases may provide essential clues at to the origins of SARS-CoV-2 and review the circumstances in which they were...

This list of 50 questions was sent by André Goffinet and Gilles Demaneuf to the members of the Jan 2021 WHO Mission to Wuhan (Embarek, Koopmans, etc - the non-Chinese side as we had no name for the Chinese members), as a useful reference before they went on their trip. The questions themselves were a collective DRASTIC work over Dec 2020. I redacte...

In 2003–04, in the wake of the SARS epidemics, there were multiple cases of laboratory acquired infection (LAI) with SARS in just a few months: first in a P3 in Singapore, then in a military P4 in Taipei and last a protracted case in the very top P3 laboratory in China. This article reviews these cases in great details, going well beyond the exist...

A probabilistic treatment can be very useful when trying to discover the most probable causes that are consistent with the available information at the time. In particular in such a treatment all assumptions and all probability estimates are explicit and are open for investigation. Here we explore the relative probabilities of a lab-related acciden...
