Leading Fauci-Funded Scientist Who Pushed Natural Origin Theory Concealed Wuhan Link and Conflict of Interest
Truth Over News

Ian Lipkin is the one behind the movie “Contagion.” He worked in Beijing as an intermediary between the World Health Organization and the Chinese regime. He also worked closely with Chinese Communist Party United Front leader Chen Zhu.
But we all got to know him as co-author of Proximal Origin—the infamous article that was conceived by Dr. Anthony Fauci and his group of scientists to push the false narrative that the COVID pandemic had a natural origin.
And now it emerges that Lipkin also worked for Peter Daszak, the president of EcoHealth Alliance through whom Fauci funded the Wuhan lab.
That’s quite a resume. The problem is that Lipkin didn’t tell anyone about the last part. When he wrote in Proximal Origin that “we do not believe that any type of laboratory-based scenario is plausible,” he had a duty to disclose that he was affiliated with Daszak and had worked for Daszak’s EcoHealth.
But the name Lipkin does not appear in the article’s conflicts declarations—not in 2020 when the article first came out and not since.
That’s a big problem and it’s not the only problem for Lipkin and his crew of Fauci scientists.
