It is worth listening to Nicholas Wade on this recent podcast.

You can start at 5:00 to jump past the introduction and commercial messages.

from 28:24, on Daszak's lack of transparency and fake protests:

"So in light of this knowledge it is very hard not to interpret his protests as being because he feared the very opposite. He protested that the lab leak was a ridiculous possibility because he knew it was not" Image
from 43:30, on Andersen's smokescreen and publication of the dogma in Nature Medicine in March 2020:

"And none in that circumstance is going to sort of stand up and say ‘This paper by Andersen and his colleagues is bullshit’.
No one said a word." Image

Some people have asked if DARPA funded any project under the PREEMPT request for proposals.

The answer is yes. 5 teams were funded.
We detailed that in our analysis:

@ianbirrell @Tantalite @thedeadhandbook @KatherineEban @natashaloder @thackerpd
You can even find DARPA unclassified budget for PREEMPT online as part of its FY21 report (a report that is a rabbit hole of its own - no time to go there):

The name is different - makes it a bit fuzzy - but that is PREEMPT most certainly. darpa.mil/attachments/DA…
You can see that DARPA is spending on average around $2.5 mln per year per team. So allowing for some tapering off after 3 years, the individual budget per team must average $10 mln or so.

It is in line with the $9.37mln for UCDavis PREEMPT Project:

A great interview of @BricePerrier by @Tantalite in le Point, about the media silence in France on the origins question - very similar to the situation in many other countries.

English Translation (it's becoming my second job):
The conclusion is spot on:
With a good evaluation of the importance of the DEFUSE documents that leaked to DRASTIC:

@R_H_Ebright Olival is the one who had that very sudden epiphany about the risk of BatCov infection from bat guano ***just one year *** after the 3 people working in the Mojiang mine died with SARS-CoV like symptoms and with IgG+ tests.

@R_H_Ebright Nothing was ever mentioned about these Mojiang deaths. Just one of these coincidences.

They had to rush a bit to do that paper, so they used bat guano samples that DARPA had collected back in 2006-7, before EHA was created and could replace them there.

This starts a bit slowly but actually it is rather good.
I just wish the testimony could be fully validated as genuine.

@ianbirrell @thedeadhandbook @Tantalite @KatherineEban @natashaloder
The Zhongnan hospital of Wuhan University is right next to the university ABSL-3 and is close to the mysterious young early patient WH3 (21y old female, ebi.ac.uk/biosamples/sam…)

See DRASTIC searchable map:
WH3 is also linked to the PLA hospital of central military command - with genomic file created on December 10 [yes, 10], 2019 as explained by Dr Quay zenodo.org/record/4119263….

An excellent article in 'Der Spiegel', by @alexsarovic and @VHackenbroch
"You don't write such applications out of the blue," says Martin Wikelski, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Behavioural Biology in Radolfzell.
"It really worries me for the future that the experiments conducted were not classified as gain-of-function trials by the researchers," said Karin Moelling, Professor of Virology at the University of Zurich.
