Walkley Award-winning journalist, Sharri Markson is the Investigations Editor at The Australian and host of prime-time show Sharri on Sky News Australia.
The origins of Covid-19 are shrouded in mystery. Scientists and government officials insisted, for a year and a half, that the virus had a natural origin, ridiculing anyone who dared contradict this view. Tech giants swept the internet, censoring and silencing debate in the most extreme fashion. Yet it is undeniable that a secretive facility in Wuhan was immersed in genetically manipulating bat-coronaviruses in perilous experiments. And as soon as the news of an outbreak in Wuhan leaked, the Chinese military took control and gagged all laboratory insiders.
Part-thriller, part-expose, What Really Happened in Wuhan is a ground-breaking investigation from leading journalist Sharri Markson into the origins of Covid-19, the cover-ups, the conspiracies and the classified research. It features never-before-seen primary documents exposing China's concealment of the virus, fresh interviews with whistleblower doctors in Wuhan and crucial eyewitness accounts that dismantle what we thought we knew about when the outbreak hit.
With unprecedented access to Washington insiders, Markson takes you inside the White House, with senior Trump lieutenants revealing first-hand accounts of fiery Oval Office clashes and new stories of compromised government advisors and censored scientists.
Bravely reported and chillingly laid out, Markson brings to light the stories of the pandemic from the people on the ground: the scientists and national security officials who raised uncomfortable truths and were labelled conspiracy theorists, until government agencies began to suspect they might have been right all along. These brave individuals persisted through bruising battles and played a crucial role in investigating the origins of Covid-19 to finally, in this book, bring us closer to the truth of what really happened in Wuhan.

1. We live in a scary world where much is happening that we did not know about.
2. It is difficult to know who to trust. Scientists are shown to be self serving not scientific, journalists are taken in by lies, - where can we get information from.
3. America is a mess. Agencies meant to protect the world are controlled by people whose interest is in survival, not truth. Trade agreements are more important than truth. Hatred of Trump skews everything and Biden,s America is unravelling.
4. Scott Morrison and Australia come out looking better than most because they took a stand.
5. The idea that China is getting stronger and more powerful is frightening.
Thanks to Ms Markson for her hard work on this book. It was hard for a non scientist to read but she did a good job making complex material accessible to people like me.
It doesn’t take the hurt out of lockdown but at least I now know what caused it. And I am concerned about the safety of the world my grandchildren will inherit.
In addition to the content that is brilliantly presented and explained this book carries a further message to all humans about our society and overall philosophies of life.
A definite to read and think about as to how to best improve humanity for the future.
Thank you Sharri Markson for your invaluable contribution.
The book is heavy going, rich in detail and certainly worth a read.
It provides enormous circumstantial evidence of the origins of COVID-19 that are hard to refute.
Whilst it is not pleasant reading and may leave the reader with a sense of dillusionionment with the human race, it is essential reading.
It is a long book and full of scientific language, but the author is able to convey her meaning in terms easily understood.
I found it laborious reading at times, but the nature of this subject compelled me to continue, and I am glad I did. I can only congratulate Sharri Markson on her bravery and the bravery of all her sources for bringing the truth of this pandemic to the attention of the general public.
Many scientists, and our mass media all say it was a wild virus that somehow jumped to infect humans.
By thoroughly researching this subject, Ms Markson shows us that a leak from the BSL4 Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory is a far more likely scenario.
She has thoroughly researched this outbreak and interviewed all the most knowledgeable people, a huge task in itself.
She has also exposed the USA political community for not being objective about China. The USA and Australia both have serious conflicts of interest for their participation in the biological scientific research that was conducted in that Wuhan Laboratory.
Everyone should read this treatise. People need to be informed.
Thank you Sharri Markson.
However, I would draw the author's attention to one factual error.
On page 54 of the Kindle edition it states that York is to the west of Manchester in the UK. This is not correct. In fact, York is to the north-EAST of Manchester. Can I suggest that it may be better to use London as a point of reference when correcting this in the next edition. I say this because, compared to Manchester, more of the readership will know where London is. By the way, York is some two hundred miles driving distance north of London.

The recklessness of scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the cover up, not only by the CCP, but by scientists in the West, are shocking.
There should be a worldwide moratorium on this type of research, before an even more deadly pandemic is unleashed.
" Dimon....contracted tuberculosis at seven, the VIRAL infection took her to the brink of death."
Tuberculosis is caused by a bacterium NOT a virus. A little further on it goes " a doctor....stole antibiotics from the hospital,saving her life". This further compounds the error since antibiotics are completely ineffectual against viruses.
This a sloppy blunder from an author who surely needs at least lower school knowledge of microbiology to be able to write authoritatively about the SARS Covid virus. I lost the will after this.
