Former director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Robert Redfield was reportedly excluded from discussions about the origin of COVID-19 after seeking answers about a potential lab leak, according to a new report.
Vanity Fair claimed that Redfield was “bullied” over his attempts to seek answers about the origin of the virus.

‘Shouldn’t have a monopoly’
“A handful of virologists shouldn’t have a monopoly in the media on the complex question of whether the pandemic was ignited by virology research,” Vanity Fair writer Emily Kopp wrote.
“Especially in light of the bullying described here,” she tweeted.

‘Trading personal insults’
Scientists are usually known for dealing with evidence, but the coronavirus has reportedly led to personal attacks.
“The dispute over COVID-19’s origins has become increasingly acrimonious, with warring camps of scientists trading personal insults on Twitter feeds. Natural-origin proponents argue that the virus, like so many before it, emerged from the well-known phenomenon of natural spillover, jumping from a bat host to an intermediate species before going on to infect humans,” the report claimed.
“Those suspecting a lab-related incident point to an array of possible scenarios, from inadvertent exposure of a scientist during field research to the accidental release of a natural or manipulated strain during laboratory work,” it added.
“Their goal was to have a single narrative,” said former CDC Director Robert Redfield.https://t.co/e24GBXProp

Rather than focusing on evidence, the CDC seemed to focus a lot on the “narrative.”
The strange twist on the scientific study in Redfield’s case has pointed to more politics taking place at the CDC than they have admitted, a bad sign for Americans eager for truth.
