Given recent news regarding the suppression of relevant data regarding Covid at the start of the pandemic, when it was at it's most dangerous, will there ever be an accounting for the number of people Daszak, Fauci & co have harmed or killed?

I suppose Fauci's co-operation with the PRC makes perfect sense now - killing chunks of your own population for the sake of "harmony" is a very CCP way to go about things, isn't it?

There will never, ever be accountability.

If we are charitable, an accident orders of magnitude more deadly than a dozen Tschernobyls has happened.

If we are not, a holocaust-level crime against humanity has been committed.

In both cases, it's in the interests of both China and the defacto oligarchs in the US government to look away and pretend nothing happened.

No scientist is ever going to come out and say "yes we or they created it in a lab" because they are protecting their jobs or even their lives.

I saw a post elsewhere about India downplaying their number of dead and it might be 3 million. Shortly followed by another post about lab leak theories. Commenters on the first were an average of something like "yes maybe" on the second it was "no way".

That made me realize. China has executed CEOs for killing fewer. The west wouldn't but that's because we're all sissies. They'd certainly be punished some other way.

That is why nobody will ever try to prove it.

Someday our descendants will describe our several generations as generations of driveling do-nothings. First we submissively allowed them to massacre us by the millions and then with devoted concern we tended the murderers in their prosperous old age. What are we to do if the great Russian tradition of penitence is incomprehensible and absurd to them? What are we to do if the animal terror of hearing even one-hundredth part of all they subjected others to outweighs in their hearts any inclination to justice? If they cling greedily to the harvest of benefits they have watered with the blood of those who perished? It is clear enough that those men who turned the handle of the meat grinder even as late as 1937 are no longer young. They are fifty to eighty years old. They have lived the best years of their lives prosperously, well nourished and comfortable, so that it is too late for any kind of equal retribution as far as they are concerned.

Gulag Archipelago

So the odds are not in our favor, but there is no other way then to keep records and work towards a tomorrow where we do not repeat the Russian tradition.

From goalposts to lamp posts.

If you're waiting for the system to punish the system...

It's starting to remind me more and more of the world of Killer 7.
