(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) After Project Veritas released its latest bombshell video that captured a Pfizer official describing either proposed or ongoing experiments by the pharmaceutical firm, the company released the statement after YouTube already deleted a video, denying that it conducts gain-of-function research on COVID-19.
“Allegations have recently been made related to gain of function and directed evolution research at Pfizer and the company would like to set the record straight,” the company wrote in the statement.
“In the ongoing development of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Pfizer has not conducted gain of function or directed evolution research.”
The statement was released on Friday and did not mention the Project Veritas video, which was posted on Wednesday evening and has received over 20 million views, according to the Daily Wire. Since then, it was deleted from YouTube but is still available on Twitter and Rumble.
In the video, Jordon Walker, Pfizer’s director of research and development, strategic operations – mRNA scientific planner, stated that the company has considered mutating COVID-19 through “directed evolution” in monkeys to develop new vaccines.
When Walker described to the undercover Project Veritas reporter the process of mutating the virus by infecting monkeys, the reporter said that it sounds like gain-of-function research, in which viruses are manipulated to become more dangerous. Some experts suspect the gain-of-function research, possibly funded in part by a grant from the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to be connected to the creation of COVID-19 inside a lab in Wuhan, China. Walker insists, however, that the research he is describing is “directed evolution” research and not gain-of-function.
He also implied that federal regulators don’t enforce laws on Pfizer because they hope to get a job there and that the company expects COVID to be a “cash cow” for years to come.
