  1. I recommend Dr Eguabor to everyone who has the HIV to get a cure from it. I was diagnosed with HIV in 2018 and i have been searching and asking questions to see if i could get anything to cure the disease because i did not believe what the doctors say that a cure has not yet been found. I came across a comment on Youtube and the person testified how he got cured of HIV and herpes after using Dr Eguabor herbal medicine. I quickly contact Dr Eguabor via email and explain my issue to him and he prepares the herbs and sends them to me by courier and gave me instructions on how to use them and tells me to go for a checkup after use which i did after two weeks of taking the herbal medicine and my result was NEGATIVE. I waited another month and retested that the result was still NEGATIVE and my doctor told me that i am completely HIV free. I am very happy and grateful to Dr Eguabor for what he has done for me and i will continue to share this so people know that there is a cure for herpes. You can contact Dr Eguabor via email and also on WhatsApp +2348107439905

  2. Who cares where it came from. I suspect, I guess, I think? Give us proof and clarify how will it change the present otherwise wasting everyone's time! Focus on the variant. Look! We are a nation of self! Me myself and I so it's a miracle we had this many people took vaccines. We don't care about others especially passing COVID to our children and the sick. That's our Christian way! Wait… that doesn't sound right. I thought as a Christian nation, we should think of others 1st as the foundation of our country? Aye… this will never end until we (you fill in the blank).

    I think Lex Luther flew to Wuhan and attended the World Military game that was just few miles from the wet market… hey it's the perfect way to hit China (Wuhan is it's education and industry center), it looks like everything is working as intended. 🙂

    I think… I think…perhaps…

  3. These labs are all joint ventures between USA AND China so it is really funny how they are both trying to shift blame now. Like two co-defendants turning on each other

  4. Do aback ground check on how many of the Wuhan Scientist Graduated from the University of Washington Molecular Cellular programs and other collages in the USA .
    Then they go back and work for there government to produce dangerous Viruses

  5. And where was NBC last spring??????? Plenty of people were revealing this, and NBC and the other fakers were busy calling them all 'conspiracy theorists' and banning them. Well well well, NBC has been exposed now, they're fake news, fake journalists, and fake propagandists, just like Trump said.

    Smart and HONEST people knew this more than a year ago. Now the media has finally woken up I guess, since they are all reporting about this now. The media and politicians LIED to all of us for more than a year, they called anyone saying this a 'conspiracy theorist' for over a year. But this virus OBVIOUSLY was created in their only level 4 bioweapons lab in Wuhan, the epicenter for the virus outbreak.
    And the chinese purposely let it spread around the world by not stopping 'international flights' out of china. They did stop 'domestic' flights out of Wuhan right away however. They didn't care about the rest of the world. Their tyrannical communist government didn't even care about it's own people.
    China did this because their economy was crashing in 2019, and they wanted to damage the world economy in an effort to profit off the virus and exploit the world by making the world dependent on them. They promptly sold many countries masks and PPE equipment that did not work and were faulty. And they initially succeeded as economies failed and millions around the world died from their virus.
    But they overplayed their hand, and now the world does not like china for what it's done. The world is now learning the TRUTH about china and it's murderous communist regime, the CCP.
    China has not apologized to a single nation, or a single person yet !
    Think about that !! That tells us all who they are and what they're about. The CCP is a menace to the world !!

  7. Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance admits that corona viruses CAN be EASILY MANIPULATED in the LAB, before the COVID-19 virus. Just Google it. And Peter Daszak is the United States representative on World Health Organization. And Anthony Fauci disagreed with Obama's ban on Gain of Function Research. And Anthony Fauci approved that the Gain of Function research be continued by off shoring in Wuhan. Fauci and Daszak need to be asked two questions for now – Is any Gain of Function Research currently on-going that we are funding, If so WHY and IF so WHERE. Fauci recently suggested that the Where is North Carolina.

  8. NBC, the public has lost all respect for your reporting. When Trump was president you told us the origin of this virus from the Wuhan Lab was a conspiracy theory, a Trump fantasy. Now you're telling us we can't trust the Chinese and that there were very early COVID cases in lab employees, implying lab origin of the virus. Just shut-up! The public saw this months ago.

  9. Comical. The CCP is THE guilty party coupled with you, NBC, CNN, MSBNC, and every other US news organization that pushed alternative narratives and the politicization of science. We knew of the database erasures thirteen months ago as they were all archived.

  10. They arrested the people reporting on this in China and now we cant trust their experts who we know would be arrested for saying anything other than what they are told to say. China is dysfunctional beyond repair.

  11. I don't understand why US still gives China tons of business. Remove all American companies from China and stop strengthening them. Enough is enough. There are many poor countries that can do manufacturing. Stop doing business with China.

  12. China had been applying “The Art of War” against the West while our governments watch without doing anything because china brings $$$$$! Its time to act!!!

  13. China was able to do the Covid research because Dr. Anthony Fauci’s NIH provided the money to do so!
    The NIH research consisted of two parts. The first part began in 2014 and involved surveillance of bat coronaviruses, and had a budget of $3.7 million. The program funded Shi Zheng-Li, a virologist at the Wuhan lab, and other researchers to investigate and catalogue bat / Ferret coronaviruses in the wild. This part of the project was completed in 2019.
    A second phase of the project, beginning that year, included additional surveillance work but also gain-of-function research for the purpose of understanding how bat coronaviruses could mutate to attack humans. The project was run by EcoHealth Alliance, a non-profit research group, under the direction of President Peter Daszak, an expert on disease ecology. NIH canceled the project just this past Friday, April 24th 2020 and Politico reported. Daszak did not immediately respond to requests for interview. It’s simple investigate NIH and Eco Health Alliance document project 1R01Ai110964 Nov 2018 on Gain of Function ……..since NIH has taken this off NIH website.

  14. China and America did this. Fauci is head of the national institute of health that oversaw bat coronavirus growth of function research in wuhan china. Dr fauci is guilty of negligence at least, if not a complete coverup and treason.

  15. I can't stand that Kier Simmons character. He is arrogant and biased. Please have journalistic integrity and stop painting China to be this evil villain. Has it ever occurred to you that maybe the US is the evil one and covered up the the evidence ie the outbreak that happened at the retirement home in Virginia in July 2019?

  16. Imagine that the Wuhan virus labs never existed. Then ask why Mother Nature would only select Wuhan city to randomly spring this corona virus on the world. 1 chance out of a bullion? 1 out of a trillion?
