According to European CDC whistleblower, the recent monkeypox outbreak gripping the globe might have been originated from a lab.

Dr. Benjamin Braddock, an independent investigator, stated on Twitter that an unknown source at the ECDC informed him that initial investigation of the monkeypox virus revealed that it emerged from a lab and could be linked to US biological research in Ukraine.
“ECDC source tells me that the preliminary analysis of monkeypox indicates that it is ‘a third lab strain with unknown characteristics’ and that there is chatter about this being somehow related to Moscow’s charges against U.S. biological activities in Ukraine,” Braddock tweeted Saturday.
Furthermore, a Russian-Chinese combined task team is also investigating “where it originated, whether it is detectable in research conducted by the US in Ukraine, Georgia; whether there is a link to biological research conducted by the US on smallpox in Ukraine,” he added.
Faced with an increase in monkeypox occurrences in the United States and Europe, an ECDC source reports the agency is planning to purchase smallpox vaccinations (Imvanex) from biotech company Bavarian Nordic, despite the fact that they have not been tried on this strain of monkeypox.

“Main ECDC focus right now is on buying up as much of BN’s vaccine as possible. ‘They’re buying before they know whether it is even effective against this strain of monkeypox. I wouldn’t be surprised if they skipped testing it’s efficacy altogether,’” Braddock tweeted.
The World Health Organization issued a warning to Ukrainian authorities shortly after Russia entered Ukraine, advising them to eliminate any high-threat pathogens being investigated in biolabs to avoid “any potential spills” into the public.
On Friday, Russia’s Parliamentary Commission on Investigation of US Biological Laboratories in Ukraine accused the US of performing unlawful smallpox and Ebola research at Ukraine’s covert biolabs.
“Today, we presented an analysis of which pathogens the US was particularly interested in in Ukraine,” said Irina Yarovaya, the committee’s co-chair. “Aside from the pathogens that are territorially bound to Ukraine, [the laboratories] researched viruses and pathogens that are endemically very far from Ukraine, such as Ebola and smallpox.”
Monkeypox infections were previously solely recorded in Central and West African countries, perplexing scientists as to why monkeypox cases have suddenly appeared in North America and Europe in recent weeks.
“I’m stunned by this. Every day I wake up and there are more countries infected ,” said Oyewale Tomori, a virologist who previously served as the head of the Nigerian Academy of Science and now serves on various WHO advisory committees.
“This is not the kind of spread we’ve seen in West Africa, so there may be something new happening in the West,” he said.
Interestingly, the US Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) recently ordered 13 million doses of Bavarian Nordic’s Jynneo smallpox/monkeypox vaccine, but the Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a statement asserting the bulk order has nothing to do with the currently underway monkeypox outbreak.
“The most recent BARDA purchase of smallpox vaccine was part of a standard and ongoing preparedness efforts and unrelated to specific events,” a representative for the Department of Health and Human Services told Axios on Friday.
“BARDA has worked with industry to develop and purchase vaccines and treatments for a potential smallpox emergency, some of which may also be used to respond to monkeypox,” the spokesperson added.
Since the virus was eliminated in 1980, there have been no naturally occurring instances of smallpox in the United States.
Why would the United States government feel forced to purchase a supply of smallpox/monkeypox vaccines at this time?
