I’ve actually got a bit of respect for Dearlove… He doesn’t talk much, but when he does, he talks the truth.
The thing with biological warfare is, it’s so classified and top secret, the public scientific community and University funded researchers, really have no idea how advanced these military programmes actually are.
The other thing people should consider is, these programmes do study and manipulate natural pathogens and viruses found in nature.
Everyone does it!… no ones allowed to talk about it.
Ex-MI6 boss claims coronavirus started in a lab
A former MI6 chief has said he believes the origins of the coronavirus pandemic can be traced back to an accident at a Chinese laboratory.
Sir Richard Dearlove who spent 38 years with Britain’s intelligence service, said he had seen a new scientific report suggesting the virus was engineered by scientists in China. Experts widely agree the disease originated in animals before passing to humans.
Professor David Robertson from the University of Glasgow told the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee last month that there was ‘really no evidence’ of Covid-19 being man-made. He added: ‘I don’t think we’re clever enough to have designed this virus – it’s far too unique. We can all enjoy a conspiracy theory but you need to have evidence.’
But Sir Richard said a scientific paper published this week by a Norwegian-British research team suggested key elements in the genetic sequence of the virus were ‘inserted’ and may not have evolved naturally.
The study was produced by Professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital at the University of London and Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen. It claims to have found ‘inserted sections placed on the SARS-CoV-2 Spike surface’ which could explain how the virus binds with human cells.’
In the podcast, Sir Richard suggested scientists may have been experimenting on bat coronaviruses when Covid-19 escaped. He also raised the prospect of China potentially paying for the global damage caused by the pandemic and said the study is a ‘very important contribution to a debate’ on how the virus spread across the world.
Sir Richard added: ‘I do think that this started as an accident. It raises the issue, if China ever were to admit responsibility, does it pay reparations?’
The Daily Telegraph reported the peer-reviewed paper has been re-written several times as some scientists dismissed its original conclusions.
An earlier version of the study claimed to prove ‘beyond reasonable doubt that the Covid-19 virus is engineered’.
Further analysis of the research, due to be released in the coming days, reportedly claims the Covid-19 virus has ‘unique fingerprints’ that indicate ‘purposive manipulation’ by humans.
Sir Richard said: ‘As this debate about the virus develops, I think all this material is going to be in print and is going to embarrass a number of people.’
The paper also reportedly warned that current vaccine efforts are doomed because the cause of the virus has been misunderstood.
The researchers are attempting to solve this issue by developing their own vaccine, according to the paper.
Ex-head of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove says coronavirus ‘is man-made’ and was ‘released by accident’ – after seeing ‘important’ scientific report

- Ex-MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove said he believes that Covid-19 is man-made
- He cited an ‘important’ report which claims virus was manufactured in a lab
- Believes China could be forced to pay ‘reparations’ to the rest of the world
- Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19
Sir Richard Dearlove, who was head of the MI6, a role known informally as ‘C’, from 1999 until 2004, said he believes that Covid-19 is man-made.
He cited an ‘important’ report from Professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital, University of London and Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen which claims the virus was manufactured in a laboratory.
In the report, scientists claimed to have identified ‘inserted sections placed on the Sars-CoV-2 Spike surface’ which the virus uses to attach onto cells and observed they were ‘significantly different from any Sars we have studied’.
Sir Richard added that the report’s findings could force China to pay ‘reparations’ to the rest of the world due to the damage wrought by the virus.
‘I do not think that this started as an accident,’ Sir Richard told The Telegraph‘s Planet Normal podcast.
‘It raises the issue, if China ever were to admit responsibility, does it pay reparations?
‘I think it will make every country in the world rethink how it treats its relationship with China.’
The research claimed that current efforts to find a vaccine would prove unsuccessful as scientists have so far misunderstood the true properties of Covid-19.
Sir Richard suggested that the scientists at a laboratory in Wuhan could have secretly been carrying out experiments on bat coronaviruses when Covid-19 somehow accidentally escaped through a lapse in biosecurity.
According to the former MI6 chief, the paper had been rewritten several times, and an earlier version apparently claimed coronavirus could accurately be called the ‘Wuhan virus’.
An earlier version of the report, seen by the Telegraph, reportedly claimed ‘beyond all reasonable doubt that the Covid-19 virus is engineered.’
- Beijing now admits that coronavirus DIDN’T start in Wuhan’s market… so where DID it come from, asks IAN BIRRELL
- WHO publicly praised China’s handling of coronavirus in a bid to coax more information out of Beijing – but were left in the dark and just as frustrated as the rest of the world, report says
A previous investigation by the World Health Organisation (WHO) found that the virus jumped from bats to humans at the Wuhan wet market where wild animals are kept in cages and slaughtered for meat.
The wet market is located not far from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the only level four biosecurity laboratory lab in China.
Yet late last month a Chinese official admitted no viruses were detected in animal samples.
‘At first, we assumed the seafood market might have the virus, but now the market is more like a victim,’ said Gao Fu, director of the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
