Covid’s Patient Zero is Ben Who? No, Ben Hu

Have we found Covid patients zero? It seems like we have and surprise: they were all members of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. (WIV)

“According to multiple U.S. government officials interviewed as part of a lengthy investigation by Public and Racket, the first people infected by the virus, ‘patients zero,’ included Ben Hu, a researcher who led the WIV’s ‘gain-of-function’ research on SARS-like coronaviruses, which increases the infectiousness of viruses.”

Two other patients are also called patient zero, both lab employees. They are Yu Ping and Yan Zhu.

Wuhan lab? Gain of function? Oh no, not another conspiracy theory proven correct! Recall that Twitter and YouTube actively censored users for discussing the Wuhan lab leak and the mainstream media called people who brought it up “crazy conspiracy theorists” guilty of “misinformation.”

According to Public, “When a source was asked how certain they were that these were the identities of the three WIV scientists who developed symptoms consistent with COVID-19 in the fall of 2019, we were told, ‘100%.’”
