Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University stands as a pillar of Americas academic establishment, and even as far back as three decades ago, the New York Times had already hailed him as one of the worlds most important figures in his field. He currently serves as director of his universitys Center for Sustainable Development, and over the years he has published a multitude of articles and columns on a very wide range of public policy issues.
Given that background, it was hardly surprising that the Lancet, a top medical journal, named him chairman of the Covid Commission, established to investigate all aspects of the massive disease epidemic that has devastated the world since early 2020 and killed well over a million Americans.
Yet over the last few months, Prof. Sachs has broken ranks with Americas ruling political and media elites, and courageously begun to speak his mind on the origins of the outbreak.
In May he co-authored a major paper in the prestigious PNAS journal, pointing to the very strong evidence that the Covid virus had been bioengineered, being the product of a laboratory instead of nature, and he called for an independent investigation into its true source.

Sachs PNAS May 19, 2022 2,800 Words The following month, he was even more forthright in his statements at a small think-tank gathering in Spain, and at the beginning of July a short clip of those remarks went super-viral, retweeted out more than 11,000 times and accumulating over than a million views.
As chairman of the Covid Commission, Sachs had the greatest possible credibility on the issue, but his striking statements were ignored by nearly every Western media outlet, with Britains muckraking Daily Mail being the only publication willing to break the embargo and take notice of such incendiary claims.

But although nearly all the Western journalists have continued to avert their eyes, Sachs has redoubled his efforts to publicly expose what he regards as an ongoing Covid cover-up, offering a long and remarkably candid interview to the Current Affairs webzine.

An amazing article.
Sachs is not only remarkably candid; hes also remarkably knowledgable about the issue.
Another prominent academic had a similar reaction:
Thats one hell of an interview, no doubt about it.
Most recently, Sachs spent an hour discussing the Covid issue on the popular podcast of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., another prominent dissenter who had once been close to the heart of the establishment. Sachs described the enormous dishonesty he had encountered in his role of chairman, until he finally concluded that the true nature of the virus and its origins were the subject of a massive cover-up.
