Google’s Eric Schmidt is not merely a participant in the pandemic industrial complex, but a major driver of the emerging infectious disease industry, a force more powerful and influential than any other person we’ve inducted into the Gain-of-Function Hall of Shame, including Bill Gates.
In 2008, Google.org launched Predict & Prevent with $30 million in funding for virus hunting and gain-of-function experiments. In 2009, this became USAID’s PREDICT program, a government funding juggernaut of hundreds of millions of dollars for virus research around the world, including in Yunnan, China.
In 2012, the PREDICT Consortium, including Metabiota, a for-profit company that Google Ventures funds and partners with, was near Kunming in Yunnan, China, virus hunting with the Wuhan Institute of Virology when the WIV found RaTG13, the closest known relative of SARS-CoV-2. They say the virus came from bats, but around the same time the WIV secretly took samples from six men who ended up in a Kunming hospital with a SARS-like illness after cleaning bat guano from an abandoned mine.
Google has censored investigations into the origins of COVID-19 and Eric Schmidt’s foundation is funding the COVID Commission Planning Group, a cover-up packed with Event 201 participants and led by 9/11 Commission CEO Philip Zelikow.
We suspect there’s more to the story and Google’s Eric Schmidt knows where the bodies are buried… so to speak.
OCA’s political director Alexis Baden-Mayer discussed her Gain-of-Function Hall of Shame series and the latest news of Google’s involvement with the Wuhan Institute of Virology in two back-to-back episodes of Michael Olson’s Food Chain Radio Show:
