Jonathan Latham, PhD Gives Three Video Talks: Natural Origin or Lab Escape? The Emergence of SARS-CoV-2

Series title: Natural Origin or Lab Escape? The Emergence of SARS-CoV-2


Video 1: Why Wuhan?
Could SARS-CoV-2 have come from a lab? This online talk is the first in a series of three by Dr Jonathan Latham. The three talks were presented to the EAT online community on Jan 8th, Jan 25th and Jan22nd, 2021. The three talks describe aspects of our current thinking on the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the political/economic forces attempting to influence public perception of its origins. In short, the evidence for a zoonotic origin is virtually non-existent, whereas several lines of evidence point strongly to a lab escape. However, powerful economic and political forces are preventing a frank discussion of the origins of the virus both in the media and in the scientific literature. View talk at:
Video 2: The Mojiang Miners Passage Theory
Jonathan Latham, PhD, introduces the various lab origin theories for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, the cause of the COVID19 pandemic. In order of appearance: 1) Sirotkin and Sirotkin, 2) Segreto and Deigin, and 3) the DRASTIC theory. Dr Latham then discusses the latest thinking on the Mojiang Miners Passage Theory in more detail. This theory starts with the fact that RaTG13 (the closest related viral sequence to SARS-CoV-2) was sampled from a mine that had previously been the site of a disease outbreak in 2012. In that outbreak, six miners were hospitalized and three died of COVID-19-like symptoms. The ill miners had been shovelling bat guano and were diagnosed at the time as likely suffering from an unknown coronavirus. Samples of serum, and possibly tissue samples, from four of the hospitalized miners were transported at the time to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) for testing. The Mojiang Miners Passage theory proposes that, by the time these patient samples arrived at the WIV, the original mine virus had evolved and adapted to their human hosts. It was this virus which subsequently escaped and caused the COVID19 pandemic. View talk at:

Video 3: The Pandemic Virus Industrial Complex

The military has its academic industrial complex and so does virus research. The Pandemic Virus Industrial Complex (PVIC) is busy on many fronts, one of which is actively trying to obscure the likely lab origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
In this video, Dr Jonathan Latham, PhD, shares insights into the functioning and organization of the various elements that constitute the PVIC. How do its academic, military, and commercial aspects interact? Who, if anyone, pulls the strings? View talk at: 
The talks are based in part on three articles by Jonathan Latham, PhD and Allison Wilson, PhD:
