Citizens’ Covid Origin Inquiry


What is COVID-19?
Where did it come from?

Was it given ``gain of function`` (GoF) in a laboratory to make it more virulent and contagious?

Is COVID-19 a consequence of decades of U.S. biological weapons development?

Why did the U.S. government fund a high-level biocontainment lab in Wuhan, China?

Why have pathogens like coronaviruses been given U.S. patents?

These and many other questions are addressed in the carefully researched primary source material and other resources on this website.


Our mission is to provide this well-documented but little-publicized information to our fellow Americans and others.


We do this in the hope that, as more and more citizens come to understand the origin and nature of COVID-19 and its emerging variants, the United States will:


  • Explicitly prohibit gain-of-function research.
  • Enforce the U.S. Biological Weapons AntiTerrorism Act of 1989 by prosecuting those who continue to violate its prohibitions.
  • Place and enforce price regulation on pharmaceutical companies.

A Timeline with Links to Primary and Other Sources as of May 2021


What’s happening to our world since the beginning of COVID 19 in early 2020?


Maybe you’ve thought that some things about the story of COVID 19 and our response to COVID don’t make sense, but who are you to second-guess the experts? Maybe you have noticed some statements from the experts that are opposite of what they said just a few months ago.


Whatever you think, this is a place to ask questions and to explore answers. There are no dogmas here, and we don’t claim to know anything for certain. We are concerned that fear of a virus has morphed into fear of dissent. We believe that science advances in an environment of open discussion.


We include scientists and doctors and journalists, but we come as concerned citizens in a spirit of open inquiry. This should be the norm in an open society, but in the world of COVID, the discussion has been confined within very narrow limits. The Tech Giants of Silicon Valley are doing all they can to exclude people who dissent from the narrative of the World Health Organization…


  • Even when these people are doctors with extensive experience treating COVID patients
  • Even when they are public health researchers with extensive publication histories
  • Even when Constitutional scholars question the “emergency powers” that have
    supplanted the rule Congress and state legislatures


We are told that it is “settled science”, but some of it is very new, remarkably different from the way epidemics have been handled in the past. And, perhaps coincidentally, this “science” is awfully convenient for some of the most profitable companies on the planet.


What we hope to show you here is that there is no unity among the authorities. There are Nobel laureates and award-winning journalists and top-tier academics who are dissenting, speaking as loudly as they can to offer an alternative view of what is unfolding.


  • Was it necessary to shut down the world’s economies? Did it even have any effect on spread of the virus?
  • Is it true that your neighbors and loved ones and perfectly healthy people walking on the streets could be a threat to your health?
  • What measures can you take, personally, to optimize your immune system and give yourself better protection than any of the vaccines?
  • What are the best treatments for COVID patients? And who are the doctors offering these treatments?
  • Do the vaccines protect our communities from the spread of COVID?  What do we know about their long-term safety?


If you want to explore a diversity of views in response to these questions — and other questions of your own — you’ve come to the right place.

In the name of “biodefense” massive amounts of U.S. government money has flowed to high-level biosafety labs (BSL’s) where microbiologists have manipulated dangerous viruses in nature to give them “gain of function” (GoF) to make them more lethal and transmissible. The coronavirus known as Covid-19, which emerged in 2019 and was a pandemic by 2020, is a SARS-CoV-2 virus that virologists have found was genetically manipulated in a lab to both attach to and then penetrate human cells. Please support legislation to investigate the origin of COVID-19 and to ban gain-of-function pathogen research.




The Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 was passed unanimously by both houses of Congress and signed into law by President H.W. Bush. It states: “Whoever knowingly develops, produces, stockpiles, transfers, acquires, retains, or possesses any biological agent, toxin, or delivery system for use as a weapon, or knowingly assists a foreign state or any organization to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for life or any term of years, or both. There is extraterritorial Federal jurisdiction over an offense under this section committed by or against a national of the United States.”
Please demand enforcement of this law.




In the largest healthcare fraud settlement in history, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer must pay $2.3 billion to resolve criminal and civil allegations that the company illegally promoted use of four of its drugs. Pfizer’s annual gross profit for 2019 was $ 41.531 billion. Expected profits from Covid vaccine sales are $20 billion. Booster shots will bring in more. Big Pharma”s donations to Congress impede price regulation and serve to perpetuate laboratory procedures such as gain-of-function research. Please support strict regulation and price controls of pharmaceuticals.
