Swiss embassy says Chinese media cited phony biologist to further COVID narrative

In a bizarre twist in the ongoing the quest for accurate information about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Swiss embassy in China has declared that a biologist cited by Chinese media who supposedly hailed from Switzerland likely does not even exist, according to The Telegraph.

In a detailed Twitter post, the embassy also urged Chinese media outlets that had referenced so-called Swiss biologist “Wilson Edwards” to retract and remove posts and articles that mentioned him and therefore contain “false” news, as the BBC noted.

One example in which the identity “Wilson Edwards” was used by a Chinese media outlet in the coronavirus context was found in the China Daily, which posted, “[Wilson Edwards] said on his Facebook account: ‘As a biologist, I’ve witnessed in consternation over the past months how the origin-tracing of COVID-19 was politicized.’”

Shanghai Daily, via its Shine digital platform, reported, “A European biologist has come to the fore with a startling claim that a World Health Organization (WHO) advisory group on tracing the origins of pathogens including the virus responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic, would become a ‘political tool,’” as the BBC further noted.

The scientist supposedly known as Wilson Edwards was further said to have opined that “the U.S. is so obsessed with attacking China on the origin-tracing issue that it is reluctant to open its eyes to the data and findings.”

According to the Swiss embassy, there is simply no record of registration of a Swiss citizen going by the name Wilson Edwards, and no academic papers have been published under that moniker. Furthermore, the Facebook page referenced in the Chinese media mentions of the supposed biologist dated back just two weeks prior to the citations and boasted a mere three friends.

The Swiss diplomatic installation noted that it was going on the assumption that the articles in which “Wilson Edwards” was used as a source were disseminated in good faith and was simply asking that those who publicized or amplified them take steps to issue corrections.

That overly charitable view, however, may not be so readily accepted by those who have spent the last 17 months both frustrated and infuriated by the deception and obfuscation emanating from China on all things COVID-19 and the seeming unwillingness of leaders in our own country to press harder for the answers every American deserves about the origins of this scourge.

They are right about the West NOT OPENING THEIR EYES TO THE FACTS about the origin of the virus. Expecting China to openly admit anything factual about the virus, and where and how it was developed is foolish and a waste of time. The facts were available on the web until Google and other BIG TECH social media companies CENSORED IT! In America, the most deceitful, arrogant, elitist in our bureaucracy continues to stonewall and LIE about HIS INVOLVEMENT WITH THE WIV! He needs to clearly answer some very direct questions, UNDER OATH! Sen Paul has the POWER TO DO IT AND IS THE ONLY WAY THAT ARROGANT ELITIST FAUCI WILL EVER TELL THE TRUTH! AND IF HE LIES, HE MUST GO TO PRISON FOR TREASON! The world needs to understand the first global use of a bioweapon has occurred, and if not, explain why we should continue to placate China. WE DO KNOW FOR A FACT CHINA TOOK EXTREME MEASURES TO COVER UP ITS EXISTENCE, ALLOWING IT TO SPREAD GLOBALLY! INNOCENT PEOPLE DO NOT WORK THAT HARD TO COVER UP FACTS AND ATTEMPT TO PLACE BLAME EVERYWHERE ELSE BUT ON THEMSELVES!

You mean Dr Fauci was the Creater of the virus. He worked on it for years then sent it to China with lots of money by the way taxpayers money, Then made a profit off the virus with patents and masks before anyone knew about the virus. There your murderer Dr Fauci. The biggest con man since Al Gore and his fake climate change.

why bother pointing out these spam like comments or to flag them?
We’ve been doing this for months already. To no avail! Look at the
other comments on this site right now. can’t even carry on a
conversation related to what you’re reporting and you continue to
allow this kind unrelated “stuff”.

The information presented by the “Swiss” Doctor from China must be ignored unless verified as being accurate, and otherwise should be ignored.
