The theory that Wuhan Laboratory, where the new coronavirus allegedly originated, belonged to Glaxo, which would be part of a chain of links ranging from pharmaceutical company Pfizer to Black Rock investment fund manager Microsoft and Bill Gates 1.5 times, was shared on Spanish language since last November 29 on social networks. The aforementioned Wuhan Institute of Virology has nothing to do with Glaxo, but is owned by the Chinese government. Also, although Glaxo and Pfizer have entered into a business alliance, they are still competitors.
“The world is a handkerchief !! The Chinese Biological Laboratory in Wuhan actually belongs to GLAXO, which happens to be the owner of PFIZER, which manages the finances of BLACK ROCK, which casually manages the finances of the Soros Open Company, which happens to be in the interests of the French AXA whose German company accidentally bought by the German ALLIANZ and which happens to have as a major shareholder VANGUARD, a shareholder of BLACK ROCK which controls the CENTRAL BANKS and manages 1/3 of the WORLD INVESTMENT CAPITAL WHO’s first sponsor !!! Coincidences of life … Follow the money / follow the money “says the text that users share on Facebook (1, 2).
The same text circulates in Twitter and the first post that was found about him is in this Facebook post in Italian, from November 12, which is attributed to a certain Useusepe Renda.
A Google search for the name found a Pfizer employee in Italy, according to his profile on LinkedIn. AFP Factual contacted Renda without comment from the date of publication of this article.
Wuhan Institute of Virology
Investigation into the ownership of The Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) has not found any connection to Glaxo. According to this note in the journal Nature in 2017, the creation of the WIV P4 laboratory, at the center of controversy since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, was approved in 2003 by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS, for its English acronym) and was built with the help of the French International Center for Infection Research (CIRI). WIV P4 opened in 2015.
Numerous theories state that the virus was created in P4 by WIV, or that “Escape” from. Donald Trump himself said in April “Have evidence” that the pandemic originated from the said Institute, but did not present them.
AFP Factual has already checked the allegations related to the virus created in a laboratory or produced by human intervention.
Both in the inauguration records and in Pages (1) of the corporate information on the WIV website do not include any mention of the participation of any foreign company. The institute depends on the CAS, which in turn depends on the Chinese government.
Search the website of The Open Society Foundations, founded by George Soros, show that there is no mention of the French insurer AXA in connection with monetary efforts, only one that is cited as an example of lawsuits by companies for the protection of their intellectual property. Also, Soros’ philanthropic organization does not appear in the AHA’s organizational lists.
Winterthur Group, meanwhile, was an insurance company Switzerland (not German) purchased by AHA in 2006. A Google search has yielded no results for the alleged construction of a laboratory in China by a non-existent company.
On the other hand, points out Allianz on its website that in China it has offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. There is no mention of Wuhan or the laboratory of a company based in that country.
On the corporate information page of the multinational Glaxo in China also makes no mention of his involvement in either the WIV or any other center in Wuhan. Glaxo has two joint ventures in the Asian country, and is present in the cities of Shanghai, Beijing and Tianjin.
Glaxo and Pfizer
According to CNN Money, Pfizer is controlled by a majority of the Vanguard Group, holding 7.67% of its shares. GlaxoSmithKline is not listed on Pfizer as a shareholder, despite its research and equity management fund. However, it barely owns 0.67% of Glaxo, making the correlation made by viral publications inaccurate.
In December In 2018, the companies merged into a joint venture, creating in 2019 Gsk Consumer Healthcare with the participation of both, a specific alliance for the commercialization of pharmaceutical products such as Voltaren, Panadol and Advil. This, however, was not a ransom operation from one company to another and the two continue to be competitors in the pharmaceutical sector.
BlackRock, Pfizer, Soros and other connections
BlackRock is the world’s leading mutual fund manager and as such owns shares in tens of thousands of companies (including Pfizer) and has thousands of investors, including tycoon George Soros, among its many wallets.
Pfeiffer also received money from Strategic Investment Fund of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The foundation has invested in the pharmaceutical company to expand access to Siana, its injectable contraceptives, to developing countries. It also announced in September 2020 that it would work with several companies working to develop a vaccine against Covid-19. However, neither the foundation nor Gates are among Pfizer’s largest shareholders.
The Gates Foundation is also one of the WHO’s largest contributors, accounting for 11.65% of the agency’s funding. However, it is not “Main Sponsor”, because the money contributed by the German government represents 12.18% of revenue.
In conclusion, there is no evidence that Wuhan WIV is owned by Glaxo, nor is it true that he owns Pfizer. There are also no records of the Winterthur and AXA insurers’ association with WIV. On the other hand, the BlackRock fund manager, who owns a stake in Pfizer, has a stake as an investor in George Soros, as well as many other world treasures. In addition, Bill and Melinda Gates have invested in Pfizer to develop specific projects, but they are not large shareholders. Finally, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funds the WHO, but is not the primary sponsor.
