Cruz: ‘Plausible’ That COVID-19 Was Being Studied At Wuhan Institute Of Virology And Escaped From The Lab

Cruz: 'Plausible' that Covid-19 Was Being Studied at Wuhan ...

During an interview with Fox Business News host Maria Bartiromo Texas Senator Ted Cruz said it was plausible that Covid-19 was being studied at the Level 4 lab located in Wuhan and escaped, thus creating our current pandemic.
As part of a larger discussion Cruz said “what seems plausible, if not likely, is that this was a virus that was being studied at the lab, we knew they were studying bats, we knew they were studying coronaviruses, it was being studied at the lab, and the natural imprint if there’s an outbreak right next to where they’re studying this virus is somehow it escaped, presumably accidentally, that some safety protocol wasn’t followed.”
“We don’t know that, but China doesn’t want that question answered for the world to know and in fact, the Chinese government tweeted out that the American military brought this virus into China,” Cruz added.
“I mean, what a ridiculous propaganda lie. China doesn’t want this known.”
Cruz then accused the World Health Organization of helping China cover it all up “the World Health Organization which is dependent on China for a whole lot of money, they don’t want this known.”
“And much of the American media, you look at the big media companies, there are very few things that are more important to them than access to the Chinese market.”
“This is all about money. This is about the network executives saying we got to get into China, there’s a whole lot of money to be made so let’s defend China at all costs.”
“Once we defeat this pandemic and our priority now needs to be the immediacy of beating this pandemic, once we defeat it, there needs to be serious careful inquiry into what the hell happened, how could it have been stopped and how could we have saved all of the lives that are being lost right now through this terrible disease.”
Read the transcript below, it will send chills down your spine:
BARTIROMO: We are going to be looking forward to your leadership on this issue, Senator, because we need this change and we are looking to you you to move the needle on this.
Let me ask you this, as far as the origin of this Coronavirus, we know it came from Wuhan. Do we know if it came from the only level four super lab in China, which is located in Wuhan, or was it this from the open markets there?
Because there is a lot of conversation on whether or not we at some point are going to learn that somebody made a big mistake by playing around with biochemicals and it got out.
CRUZ: You are exactly right. That is a critically important question to ask, how did this start, what could have been done to prevent it, the short answer is no, we do not know the origin of this virus we know where outbreak first began it was Wuhan.
And you are right.
There is a level four biomedical research, the Wuhan institute of Virology a few miles away.
That is the level four is highest level security. We know that at that facility they were he researching highly, highly infectious diseases including coronaviruses, including coronaviruses that derived from bats.
So they’re researching the exact same type of disease that became a pandemic.
And it is a natural question to ask, there have been multiple stories written in the global media about how this security protocols at this Wuhan institute were lacking, they weren’t very good, that this is you know this is a sort of place you — see in movies people come in hazmat suits and it’s you all sealed off because there are some very dangerous diseases there.
It’s a very natural question to ask well, did somebody make the mistake, were they studying this virus and did it escape accidentally and is that part of why the communist government in China tried so hard to cover this up.
And you know, I’ll say it’s an interesting thing, Maria.
There were initially some questions being asked right at the start of this outbreak, right along these lines, then you saw much of the mainstream media react in lockstep, and oppose it with a ferocity that was just curious.
There were a whole series of stories
BARTIROMO: Disgusting.
CRUZ: That’s exactly right. There were a whole series of stories that said no, the science demonstrates this virus was not made in a lab.
Well, no one is arguing that this is a biological weapon the Chinese army created.
In fact, what seems plausible, if not likely, is that this was a virus that was being studied at the lab, we knew they were studying bats, we knew they were studying coronaviruses, it was being studied at the lab, and the natural imprint if there’s an outbreak right next to where they’re studying this virus is somehow it escaped, presumably accidentally, that some safety protocol wasn’t followed.
We don’t know that, but China doesn’t want that question answered for the world to know and in fact, the Chinese government tweeted out that the American military brought this virus into China.
I mean, what a ridiculous propaganda lie. China doesn’t want this known.
The World Health Organization which is dependent on China for a whole lot of money, they don’t want this known.
And much of the American media, you look at the big media companies, there are very few things that are more important to them than access to the Chinese market.
This is all about money. This is about the network executives saying we got to get into China, there’s a whole lot of money to be made so let’s defend China at all costs.

Once we defeat this pandemic and our priority now needs to be the immediacy of beating this pandemic, once we defeat it, there needs to be serious careful inquiry into what the hell happened, how could it have been stopped and how could we have saved all of the lives that are being lost right now through this terrible disease.
