Timeline of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The purpose of this page is to have a living document of the history of various health officials and governments and others prior to (where relevant) and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The spine of this began with the use of Epoch Time's COVID-19 Outbreak and Coverup. The goal of course is to provide more than just what they already have but expand it further with pages that express more detail about each event and add more where they may have missed something or exclude some that may be less relevant.

Spring 2004

Discovery of coronavirus reservoir in horseshoe bats located in southern China by director Shi Zheng-li at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). The same year the European Union signs a decree for the creation of a biosafety level 4 for the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

2005-2010

From 2005 – 2010 Shi’s team's work begins in earnest on horseshoe bats from Shitou Cave in the Yunnan Province.

2006

The avian flu outbreak of 2006 never came to much, in and of itself. However, it helped to usher in some of the thinking and language we are seeing today. It may be surprising to find that the strategy of lockdowns and social distancing have such a long history; it may not be surprising at all to learn that these did not, in fact, come from epidemiologists or doctors, but rather from computer modellers and politicians.12)

An early paper called 'Targeted Social Distancing Designs for Pandemic Influenza', that is still available on the CDC site13), shows the two lead authors as Robert J. Glass and Laura M. Glass. This is not, as one might suspect, a husband and wife team, but rather a father and daughter team; the entire paper is based on a computer simulation that Laura build for a high school project when she was 15 years old. In 2020, she refused to be interviewed by the Albuquerque Journal, but they state that,

“Laura, with some guidance from her dad, devised a computer simulation that showed how people – family members, co-workers, students in schools, people in social situations – interact. What she discovered was that school kids come in contact with about 140 people a day, more than any other group. Based on that finding, her program showed that in a hypothetical town of 10,000 people, 5,000 would be infected during a pandemic if no measures were taken, but only 500 would be infected if the schools were closed.” 14)

So while daughter was a high school student at the time, father Robert was a complex-systems analyst with Sandia National Laboratories. He had no medical training, much less an expertise in immunology or epidemiology.15)

The paper triggered a rather thorough refutation of the entire lockdown model, also published in 2006, from which the conclusion reads,

“Experience has shown that communities faced with epidemics or other adverse events respond best and with the least anxiety when the normal social functioning of the community is least disrupted. Strong political and public health leadership to provide reassurance and to ensure that needed medical care services are provided are critical elements. If either is seen to be less than optimal, a manageable epidemic could move toward catastrophe.” 16)

February 2007

A paper was published by the CDC called 'Interim Pre-pandemic Planning Guidance: Community Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Mitigation in the United States — Early, Targeted, Layered Use of Nonpharmaceutical Interventions'17) that arguably concludes against lockdowns.

December 2007

In 2007 they publish published in the Journal of Virology on the possibilities of manipulating bat coronaviruses to infect humans using HIV.18)

2009

The Predict Program

PREDICT is established by the U.S. Agency for International Development to survey animal viruses with the potential of cross-species infection to humans. Headed by Dennis Carroll.

PREDICT, a project of USAID’s Emerging Pandemic Threats (EPT) program, was initiated in 2009 to strengthen global capacity for detection and discovery of zoonotic viruses with pandemic potential. Those include coronaviruses, the family to which SARS and MERS belong; paramyxoviruses, like Nipah virus; influenza viruses; and filoviruses, like the ebolavirus.”22)

June 2009 Bioweapons Research Cable

A diplomatic cable published by WikiLeaks includes talking points for France by Hilary Clinton State Department in preparation for the 2009 Australia Group (AG) plenary session in Paris, September 21-25. The cable confirms France assisting Wuhan Institute of Virology with setting up their biosafety level 4 lab. There is concern for the possibly for bioweapons research.

“The U.S. believes participants would benefit from hearing about your experiences assisting China in setting up a Biosafety Level-4 (BSL-4) laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology from the export control and intangible technology transfer perspectives.”23)

Later…

“Critics say controversy over publication of mutant-H5N1 research highlights biosecurity weaknesses…Keim, who chairs the US National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB), is reflecting on its unprecedented recommendation to censor two scientific papers describing how to make a more transmissible form of the H5N1 avian flu virus. Others complain, however, that the NSABB has done too little, too late, to protect the world from a potentially dangerous man-made pathogen.”26)

Over the course of 8 years, the DoD funds $39 million to Daszak's Ecohealth alliance.

“Meticulous investigation of U.S. government databases reveals that Pentagon funding for the EcoHealth Alliance from 2013 to 2020, including contracts, grants and subcontracts, was just under $39 million. Most, $34.6 million, was from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), which is a branch of the DOD which states it is tasked to “counter and deter weapons of mass destruction and improvised threat networks. […] Most of the remaining money to EHA was from USAID (State Dept.), comprising at least $64,700,000. These two sources thus total over $103 million.”30)

June 2014

From an article in Nature called 'Biosafety in the Balance;

“The news last week of an accident involving live anthrax bacteria at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, is troubling. Some 84 workers were potentially exposed to the deadly Ames strain at three CDC labs. But the incident will cause much wider ripples: it highlights the risks of the current proliferation of biocontainment labs and work on dangerous pathogens. If an accident can happen at the CDC, then it can happen anywhere. A CDC analysis in 2012 reported, for example, that there were 727 incidents of theft, loss or release of Select Agents and Toxins in the United States between 2004 and 2010, resulting in 11 laboratory-acquired infections and no secondary transmission”.40)

October 2014

October 16

The Obama administration announces a moratorium on gain-of-function research. NIH Director Francis Collins disagrees with the decision and says that “these studies, however, also entail biosafety and biosecurity risks, which need to be understood better.”

“At a public meeting of the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) in Bethesda, Maryland, on 22 October, researchers complained that development of seasonal influenza vaccines and antiviral drugs might be hampered by the move. Some also made the case for continuing controversial gain-of-function experiments similar to the ones published in 2012 by Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin–Madison, whose team modified avian flu viruses to be transmissible in ferrets1. Such experiments demonstrate in principle how a bird virus could start spreading among humans. The moratorium, announced on 17 October by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, suspends new grants for gain-of-function research involving flu, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).”41)

Twitter user @TheSeeker268 contacts Monali Rahalkar and Rahul Bahulikar, two doctorate researchers in India and shares a link to a Chinese master’s thesis he had located on cnki.net, the official website for master’s and PhD theses in China. The 2013 Chinese master’s thesis referencing three deceased Mojiang miners who succumbed to pneumonia with characteristics similar to CoVid-19. was soon after professionally translated. It details the symptoms and treatment of the miners and reveals Dr. Zhong Nanshanw, China’s SARs expert, was consulted on the cases. According to the thesis, the Wuhan Institute of Virology had analyzed the miners' biological samples. It concludes the miners’ illness and death could be caused by a SARS-like coronavirus from a horseshoe bat. Additionally, a 2016 Chinese doctoral thesis is found that confirms that a team from the Wuhan Institute of Virology collected bat samples from the Mojiang, Yunnan mine (~1,100 miles from Wuhan) for analysis. https://www.preprints.org/manuscript/202005.0322/v2 https://www.theweek.in/theweek/cover/2021/06/03/how-an-indian-scientist-couple-worked-to-trace-origin-course-of-covid-19.html https://zenodo.org/record/4013209/files/preprints-zenodo-manuscript.pdf?download=1 https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpubh.2020.581569/full
