(Natural News) The state of Washington was the site of the first major coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the U.S. in March last year. As infection rates and the need for tests were spiking, BGI Group – the world’s largest biotech company – approached the state with an enticing offer.
BGI proposed to build and help run state-of-the-art COVID testing labs, provide technical expertise and high throughput sequencers and make additional donations. Given the situation, it seemed like an offer the state couldn’t refuse. But officials were suspicious about BGI and its connections with the Chinese government.
Washington, it turned out, is not the only state approached by BGI.
In its Jan. 31 episode, “60 Minutes” reported that the biotech giant had offered generous packages to at least five other states, including New York and California.
Former National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) head Bill Evanina told “60 Minutes” he was so concerned by BGI’s proposals, and who would ultimately get the data, that he authorized a rare public warning: “Foreign powers can collect, store and exploit biometric information from COVID tests.”
“We put out an advisory to not only every American, but to hospitals, associations and clinics. Knowing that BGI is a Chinese company, do we understand where that data’s going?” said Evanina, a veteran of both the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
It’s unclear whether BGI would get DNA from nasal swabs, but Evanina said “the labs are a way to establish a foothold – to bring their equipment here, start mining data and set up shop in the neighborhood.”
BGI’s deep ties with Chinese government
BGI was founded in 1999 in Beijing by Wang Jian, a Chinese geneticist who worked as a research fellow at several U.S. universities between 1988 and 1994. The company’s name was Huada at that time, and it’s still using Huada as its Chinese name. In its early years, Huada relied solely on government funding and struggled to get sufficient funds to survive.
Its big break came when SARS hit in 2003. Huada was the first to decode the SARS virus genome and to create a SARS detection kit. Later that year, the company became the Beijing Institute of Genomics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. That’s how it got its international name – BGI for Beijing Genomics Institute.
Since its birth, BGI has nurtured a very nationalistic company culture. Wang once told the Founder Magazine that his company’s walls were covered with slogans like “Loyally Serve the Country,” in appreciation for the local government’s funds.
BGI started to gain a reputation as a big player in 2010. Thanks to a $90 million loan from the state-owned China Development Bank, BGI purchased 128 sequencing systems from San Diego-based Illumina, the top sequencing equipment maker in the U.S.
With the help of American machines and tech services, coupled with cheap Chinese labor and government support, BGI quickly became the world’s DNA sequencing factory and accounted for over half of the world’s sequencing capacity.
In 2012, BGI acquired Complete Genomics, a DNA sequencing company and equipment maker. The funds for the $117.6 million purchase were raised from Chinese venture capitals. The company has expanded its footprint globally. According to its website, BGI conducts business in more than 100 countries and areas and has 11 offices and labs in the U.S.
People are concerned about China’s access to American DNA data
Some said that with Complete Genomics providing an American base, BGI would have access to more DNA samples from Americans, helping it compile a huge database of genetic information. Some also worried about the protection of the genetic information’s privacy.
According to a 2019 report from the U.S.–China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC), BGI “has formed numerous partnerships with U.S. healthcare providers and research organizations to provide large-scale genetic sequencing to support medical research efforts,”
There are three main reasons why many people in the biotech community and government have expressed concerns about China’s access to American DNA data.
In the “60 Minutes” interview, Evanina discussed the very likely scenario in which Chinese companies would be able to micro-target American individuals and offer customized preventative solutions based on their DNA.
Evanina asked: “Do we want to have another nation systematically eliminate our healthcare services? Are we okay with that as a nation?”
The second concern is that China may use DNA to track and attack American individuals. As the USCC report states: “China could target vulnerabilities in specific individuals brought to light by genomic data or health records. Individuals targeted in such attacks would likely be strategically identified persons, such as diplomats, politicians, high-ranking federal officials or military leadership.”
The third concern is that China may devise bioweapons to target non-Asians. Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, discussed it in his article “What Will China Do With Your DNA?” published by The Epoch Times in March 2019.
He wrote: “We know that the Asian genome is genetically distinct from the Caucasian and African in many ways. … Would it be possible to bioengineer a very virulent version of, say, smallpox, that was easily transmitted, fatal to other races, but to which the Chinese enjoyed a natural immunity? … Given our present ability to manipulate genomes, if such a bio-weapon can be imagined, it can probably – given enough time and resources – be realized.”
An article from Technocracy said: “China’s aggressive collection of American DNA should be doubly alarming because it can only spell one ultimate outcome: biowarfare. That is, genetically engineering viruses or other diseases that will be selectively harmful to U.S. populations.”
Passengers on Delhi to Hong Kong flight TEST POSITIVE for the coronavirus despite testing negative before flying
(Natural News) Passengers on a flight bound to Hong Kong from Delhi in India tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). The positive test results came as a surprise since the 52 travelers all presented negative test results prior to boarding. Because of these new infections, Hong Kong’s strategy to keep the Wuhan coronavirus at bay – in place since January 2021 – has taken a hit.
The passengers were on board an aircraft operated by Indian carrier Vistara. From the Indian capital, the plane flew into Hong Kong on April 4. The city’s authorities did not disclose the total number of passengers, but reports surmised that there could have been as much as 188 passengers on the flight.
Hong Kong has one of the strictest entry and quarantine measures in the world. All passengers flying in must submit a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours before departure. They are also required to take another COVID-19 test upon arrival and are mandated to quarantine themselves for a three-week period.
The passengers on board the Vistara flight fulfilled all these requirements. They submitted negative COVID-19 test results prior to boarding, undertook the mandatory COVID-19 test upon arrival and isolated themselves in hotels. It was only during the three-week quarantine period that the positive results emerged.
University of Hong Kong (HKU) scientists are now working with the Hong Kong Department of Health to sequence genomes from the 52 coronavirus-positive passengers. The Hong Kong government said several cases have also been detected on flights departing from Mumbai. As such, it banned all flights from India as well as neighboring Pakistan from April 20 to May 3. Meanwhile, Vistara said it did everything it could to minimize the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus onboard its aircraft.
The Wall Street Journal talked to a number of passengers who contracted the pathogen aboard the Vistara flight, among them Rashida Fathima. The 52-year-old said she believes that she was infected on board – despite her family wearing masks while onboard and avoiding the plane’s toilet. Fathima told WSJ that some passengers were coughing repeatedly during the flight, and families walked their crying children through the airplane isles.
Scientists weigh in on how the previously uninfected passengers contracted the pathogen
A number of experts have put forward four main theories as to why the 52 passengers ended up being infected.
One theory is that the passengers could have been infected in India after their pre-flight COVID-19 test. American epidemiologist Eric Feigl-Ding said some infections “may have occurred after the initial 72-hour pre-departure time window” following the first COVID-19 test. He added: “India cases increased 60 percent each week for the last two weeks.” The south Asian country recently reported record highs in new daily infections – with 352,991 new cases reported on April 26. It previously chalked up 346,786 new cases on April 24.
Two-year-old baby DIES during Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine experiments on children
(Natural News) Within six days of receiving a second injection of Pfizer’s experimental Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine, a two-year-old baby enrolled in the company’s clinical trials for children passed away, new reports indicate.
The ongoing trials include more than 10,000 children aging in range from five to 11 in one of the groups, and another 10,000 children as young as six months old in the other. These trials have been taking place since mid-March with the soon expectation that the jab will be “authorized” for use in children and babies.
Moderna is also running a similar series of clinical trials on children that it is calling “KidCOVE.” Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and AstraZeneca are also both running their own respective clinical trials on children to get them jabbed at “warp speed.”
As reported in the government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the two-year-old girl received her second dose of Pfizer’s DNA-modifying mRNA injection on February 25. On March 1, she suffered some kind of serious adverse reaction. On March 3, she died. No further details were provided.
The VAERS report does indicate that the child had been hospitalized since February 14, which suggests she may have gotten sick from the first shot. Despite this, someone administered a second shot to the already sick and suffering child, which caused her to die.

Parents who inject their children with vaccine poisons should be ashamed of themselves
Early in the week, it was also reported that Pfizer’s experimental gene therapy injection can cause brain damage and neurodegenerative disease.
A paper published in the journal Microbiology & Infectious Diseases explains the process by which these injections alter human DNA and cause the body to basically go haywire over time.
Despite all this, hordes of not-so-bright Americans are lining right up to get injected, believing that the vaccine will protect them against “catching” the Wuhan flu. They are also subjecting their children to it based on lies from Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, Donald Trump, and others who are aggressively pushing the jabs.
Michell Lynam, an anesthesiologist who calls herself “Dr. United States of America,” has been bragging all over Facebook about how she subjected her own children to the experimental shots. She enrolled her two teenage daughters in Pfizer’s clinical trial, and her six-year-old daughter in Moderna’s clinical trial.
Should anything happen to these poor kids, Lynam probably will not tell her Facebook followers about it. Lynam will probably also not report any potential injuries or deaths to VAERS.
The only reason the death of the two-year-old in the Pfizer trial is known about is because independent sleuths dug it out of VAERS. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is certainly not going to report on it, and neither will the mainstream media.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is also complicit, having recently lifted its recommended pause on J&J’s experimental injection, which causes deadly blood clots. Rather than ban the jab, the FDA is instead affixing a tiny warning label on the package that says the J&J injection comes with blood clot risks.
“I read this and wept,” wrote one commenter at Great Game India. “Children that age should NEVER be given any vaccines. Shame on the parents who allowed such a thing to happen.”
“Now, they are paying with broken hearts. How sad is that? These vaccines contain aluminum, mercury, and formaldehyde. Why on earth would anyone allow themselves to be injected with these poisons?”
Others offered similar sentiments of sadness and disgust that this mass genocide of humans under the guise of “public health” is even happening at all.
Coronavirus survivors regain their sense of smell by going through “fragrance journey” with renowned perfumer
The loss of the sense of smell is a symptom of COVID-19. Many who recover from the virus wait months before their ability to smell returns – and many others are still waiting.
This is why Phillips began promoting a “fragrance journey” in her custom perfumery in New York City’s Upper East Side neighborhood. The store, which she has owned for over 12 years, launched the “scent therapy healing program” earlier this year.
For $650, Phillips’ clients can get one meeting with her and a custom fragrance to take home.
During this meeting, her clients will go through many different scents such as vanilla, musk, lavender and amber. These scents are divided between three types of scents – top notes, or lighter fragrances; medium notes, such as fruity or floral scents; and base notes like vanilla.
The clients will go through these individually with the use of scented strips to help arouse their sense of smell. She explained that this process was like exercise for the brain.
The fragrance expert claims her “fragrance journey” program has helped over 20 people regain at least some of their sense of smell since it began.
Many of Phillips’ clients tell stories of their sense of smell suddenly reawakening
Phillips got the idea for her “fragrance journey” program last year when a friend sent Lyss Stern, a COVID-19 survivor, to her shop. Stern lost her sense of smell in March 2020 and never got it back.
“I said to her, ‘Look, I’m not a doctor, and I’m not a chemist, but I know the extraordinary powers of fragrance,’” said Phillips during an interview with celebrity news magazine People. Phillips took Stern through the fragrance journey, and by the time the latter got to the base notes, her dormant sense of smell started waking up.
“She couldn’t really smell the top notes, she couldn’t really identify the middle notes, but then [when she got to the base notes] suddenly there was a flicker in her eye, and she said, ‘I can smell something. I don’t know what it is, but I can smell something.’”
Phillips said Stern started crying when she realized she could smell the vanilla and amber scents on the strips.
“She texted me about three hours later and said, “I cannot believe what you just did, for the first time I’m smelling my candles, I’m smelling restaurants, I’m smelling food. I have not been able to do this,’” recalled Phillips. “It was like the fog had lifted and she could smell.”
Stern isn’t the only one who had her sense of smell reawakened by Phillips’ “fragrance journey.” According to the perfumer, 20 people have regained at least some of their sense of smell since the program began.
Tammy Farrell, 51, lost her sense of smell in March 2020 when she contracted the coronavirus. After she recovered, she was devastated to learn that her ability to smell didn’t come back. She kept waiting for her nose to suddenly reawaken. She tried all kinds of tricks, including sniffing garlic powder and regularly walking past fragrant bakeries, but nothing worked.
She sought out the help of multiple neurologists, who performed brain scans and blood tests on her. All these tests came back normal, and they couldn’t pinpoint the problem.
“I couldn’t smell anything, and no one knew why. You just can’t help but cry. I couldn’t smell my favorite candles or my husband’s cologne. I couldn’t enjoy eating – it just became fuel for my body, not pleasure.”
Farrell was motivated to seek alternatives when her daughter alerted her to the smell of gas coming from her basement that Farrell could not smell. “When you can’t smell gasoline leaks, it’s a huge problem,” she said. “I didn’t have any more options.”
On Thursday, April 22, Farrell went to Phillips’ store to go through her “fragrance journey.” After just one hour-long session, she could smell again.
“A piece of my life was missing, and I’m elated that something dormant for more than a year is triggered,” she said. “Now [my sense of smell] is on full blast.”
Farrell’s sense of smell is still recovering. She was able to detect pepper in her dinner and she was able to smell garlic, albeit faintly. But she still can’t smell many other scents, like bacon or popcorn. Despite this, she is committed to regaining her full sense of smell back, which is why she’s following the “homework” Phillips gave her – to smell different fragrances with a “meditation-like focus.”
Phillips said seeing clients get to the point where their sense of smell begins to reawaken makes what she does worth it.
“This for me, this is what I live for,” said Phillips.
“When people can’t smell and they can’t taste, they can’t enjoy their food and they don’t want to socialize. The net result is that people retract from society,” she added. “The fact that I’m able to help them rediscover their sense of smell and get back to enjoying things is such a joy. I’m so happy that I’ve been able to help people.”
