In this Sky News Australia special investigation, we delve into the origins of COVID-19 in an attempt to reveal what it was that really happened in Wuhan at the start of the global pandemic. We hear from award-winning journalist Sharri Markson, who dedicated more than a year investigating the potential leak of the virus from a top-secret laboratory in Wuhan.
During this time Markson managed to uncover evidence of a widespread cover-up and unpacks the new theory that “patient zero” worked in the Wuhan lab. She has been at the forefront of investigating the origins of COVID-19 since early in 2020 when we started to see the virus spread globally.
Since that time, the precise genesis of COVID-19 has been hotly contested, with scientists, government officials, the World Health Organization, and the Chinese authorities releasing conflicting reports. In this special, we see the first sit-down interview for an Australian broadcast media outlet with Donald Trump since he was elected president in 2016.
We also hear from a wide range of Chinese whistle-blowers, scientists, and high-ranking intelligence officials to bring us closer to discovering the truth of what happened in Wuhan. Such interviews include John Ratcliffe, the U.S. Director of National Intelligence from 2020 to 2021, and former head of British intelligence service, Mi6, Sir Richard Dearlove.
