Covid-19 may have originated in US biolab, Lancet commission chair admits. Jeffrey Sachs, who chairs Covid-19 commission at the prestigious medical journal, has claimed the deadly virus did not come out of nature.
Covid-19 did not come out of some natural reservoir but rather out of US lab biotechnology in an accident, world-renowned economist and author Jeffrey Sachs has claimed, speaking at a conference hosted by the GATE Centre think tank in Spain in mid-June.
While introducing this damning statement, Sachs suggested that he was in the loop, as he chairs the Covid-19 commission at the prestigious medical journal The Lancet.
‘So, it’s a blunder, in my view, of biotech, not an accident of a natural spill over,’ he reiterated.
The academic noted that while we don’t know for sure if this is the case, there is enough evidence pointing to this, which should be looked into. Sachs lamented that this version is, however, ‘not being investigated, not in the United States, not anywhere.’
Back in May, Sachs, along with Columbia University professor of molecular pharmacology and therapeutics Neil Harrison, penned an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, suggesting Covid-19 had originated in a laboratory. In the paper, the two academics called for greater transparency on the part of US federal agencies and universities, arguing that a lot of pertinent evidence was not disclosed.
Virus databases, biological samples, viral sequences, email communications, and laboratory notebooks could all help shed light on the pandemic origin, according to Sachs and Harrison. However, none of these materials had been subjected to independent, transparent, and scientific scrutiny, they argued.
As an indicator that Covid 19 had originated from a laboratory, the authors brought up the fact that a sequence of eight amino acids on a critical part of the virus’s spike protein is similar to an amino acid sequence found in cells that line human airways.

In fact, Sachs is not the first one to suggest that the deadly virus had not occurred naturally. The highly contagious virus was first identified in Wuhan, China, in late 2019. It then quickly spread globally, with several waves claiming millions of lives by May 2022, according to the WHO. Source, Source 2
