Big Pharma giant Pfizer admitted on Friday that it “engineered” treatment-resistant variants of Covid-19 in order to test its antiviral medicine. The admission partially backs up earlier claims by an executive with the company who told an undercover Project Veritas reporter that Pfizer was deliberately “mutating” the virus to “preemptively develop new vaccines.”
In a statement issued on Friday at 8pm, Pfizer said that it “has not conducted gain of function or directed evolution research,” referring to the practice of amplifying a virus’ ability to infect humans and the process of selecting ‘desirable’ traits of a virus to reproduce, respectively.
The Pfizer statement was released at 8pm on Friday, which is known as the best time in the week for companies to “dump” news they do not want the media to notice.
The Big Pharma giant admitted that it combined the spike proteins of new coronavirus variants with the original strain in order to test its vaccines, and that it created mutations of the virus to test Paxlovid, its antiviral drug.
