Former Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini is demanding answers about the origin of the Chinese coronavirus, particularly in relation to a revived 2015 Italian scientific documentary translated exclusively below by RAIR Foundation USA. In what appears to be a coordinated attack, the mainstream media has viciously targeted Salvini for asking reasonable questions, which suggests that he is onto something they would rather bury.
In 2015, Italian state broadcaster RAI aired Leonardo, a show dedicated to science, which revealed that Chinese scientists had created a pulmonary “supervirus” from bats and mice “for study purposes” that is capable of attacking humans. Salvini and other party leaders are demanding to know if there is a connection with the research featured in the 2015 documentary and the Chinese coronavirus, which has wreaked havoc on Italy.
In the scientific documentary, Chinese researchers in a laboratory in Beijing managed to graft a surface protein of a coronavirus found in bats onto a virus that causes SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) in mice. It should be noted that SARS was a “114-day epidemic” which “swept 29 countries, affected a reported 8,098 people, [and] left 774 patients dead…” Chinese military surgeon Jiang Yanyong exposed his government’s cover-up of the outbreak that originated in 2002–2003 in the Guangdong Province of China.
According to the documentary, the researchers imagined that the hybrid (a “chimera virus”) was suitable for affecting humans, a hypothesis later confirmed by laboratory results.
Furthermore, this specific coronavirus was shown to attach itself to our respiratory cells, triggering the syndrome and thus the organism can infect humans “directly from bats without going through an intermediate species, such as the mouse“.
The episode that aired on Leonardo seems to fit perfectly with COVID-19. The ingredients are all there: bats , SARS, acute pneumonia, the virus that attacks humans directly and infects them. The coincidences were enough to warrant question from Lega Party leader, Matteo Salvini, who has asked for clarity from the Italian government.
Salvini, along with Giorgia Meloni and the Fratelli d’Itali party, formally requested Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte explore whether the RAI documentary is proof that the SARS-CoV-2 virus that originated in Wuhan was created in a laboratory and escaped the control of Chinese scientists or was used as a bio-terrorist weapon by the Chinese government.
The establishment media has reacted swiftly and brutally to reasonable questions regarding the origin of the Chinese coronavirus. When the media responds in such a matter, the onus is on thinking citizens to push even harder for the truth. Where there is smoke, there is usually fire.

Chinese scientists create a super pulmonary virus from bats and mice. It was only for purposes of study, but there are so many protests. Is it worth the risk?
It is an experiment, of course, but it worries many scientists. A group of Chinese researchers grafted a protein taken from bats onto the SARS virus, the acute pneumonia transmitted by mice. and out comes a super virus that could infect humans.
It stayed closed inside a lab, of course. It is used only for study purposes, but is it worth running the risk of creating a threat so great just to be able to examine it? Maurizio Menicucci.
The debate about the risks of research is as old as science itself. At the heart is the myth of Icarus, who fell after flying too close to the sun with wax wings made by his father, Daedalus.
That brings up an experiment conducted in China, where a group of researchers succeeded in developing a chimera, an organism modified by grafting the superficial protein of a corona virus found in bats, the rather common horseshoe species, onto the virus that causes SARS, the acute pneumonia, albeit in a non-fatal form in mice.
It was suspected that the protein could render the hybrid capable of infecting humans, and the experiment confirmed it. It is precisely this molecule called SHC O 14 which permits the corona virus to attach itself to our respiratory cells, unleashing the syndrome.
According to the researchers, moreover, the organism from the original, and even more so the engineered one, could contaminate humans directly via bats without passing through an intermediary species such as a mouse.
And indeed this eventuality has raised a lot a lot of controversy.
Just one year ago the US government suspended funding of research focusing on the most contagious viruses.
But the moratorium didn’t stop the work of the Chinese on SARS, which was already at an advanced phase and not considered that dangerous.
According to a part of the scientific world, in fact, it is notThe probability that the virus would pass to our species would be irrelevant in comparison with the benefits, a thinking that many other experts reject.
First because the relationship between risk and benefit is difficult to evaluate. And then due to the present-day species, it is more prudent not to put into circulation organisms that could escape or be removed from the control of the labs.
