Award-winning journalist Sharri Markson uncovers explosive claims and new details about how the deadly COVID-19 pandemic began after spending more than a year investigating the potential leak of the virus from a top-secret laboratory in Wuhan.
COVID-19 has taken over four million lives worldwide and has inflicted worldwide economic destruction, but after more than 18 months the virus’ origins are still unknown.
Former US President Donald Trump first raised the possibility that the prevailing theory around the origins of COVID-19 may be false – that it naturally occurred and spread between animals before reaching humans – in April last year.

Mr Trump was swiftly shut down by media organisations across the globe including the ABC and the Guardian who were among those accusing him of peddling “unsubstantiated theories”.
The former President came under fire from all corners of mainstream and social media outlets around the world.
In the early stages of the pandemic, tech giant Facebook instituted a broad-scale unprecedented ban on any posts with “false claims or conspiracy theories” including any mention of the virus leaking from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
While unprecedented, the move had the implicit backing of the World Health Organisation who called on the world not to spread “fear and panic” by enforcing travel bans on China at the outset of the pandemic.

The WHO consistently praised China for its efforts in the aftermath of the initial outbreak of the coronavirus thanking the Asian superpower for a supposed speedy response.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom said Beijing’s transparency around the virus was “very impressive and beyond words”.
Early this year, the WHO publicly declared COVID-19 was derived from animal sources following a highly anticipated and subsequently criticised joint investigation with Chinese researchers.
But both Facebook and the WHO changed their tune when reports emerged that lab workers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology presented with COVID-like symptoms back in November 2019.
Sharri Markson has been at the forefront of this investigation, consistently breaking stories and challenging the public status quo around the origins of the coronavirus.

In March 2021, Sharri broke the world-exclusive that Wuhan Institute of Virology employees had been hospitalised with Covid-like symptoms in November 2019.
This classified intelligence was part of the reason US President Joe Biden ordered a new probe into the origins of the virus.
In the explosive new documentary ‘What Really Happened in Wuhan’, Sharri speaks to the key players on the global stage including then-President Donald Trump, Chinese whistleblowers, former head of British intelligence service, Mi6, Sir Richard Dearlove and then-U.S. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe.
Mr Ratcliffe oversaw 17 intelligence agencies and spearheaded the investigation into the origins of COVID-19.

As US President, Trump was privy to the top-secret intelligence on Wuhan and in the Sky News exclusive interview, Sharri questions Trump about his knowledge of when and how COVID-19 emerged and his claims surrounding the evidence for a lab leak.
Sky News anchor, Sharri Markson said: “Even though four million people have now lost their lives, there has been no credible investigation into the origins of COVID-19. It’s outrageous. People deserve better from our world health authorities. That’s why we wanted to delve into this important topic.”
Paul Whittaker, Chief Executive Officer, Sky News Australia said: “The interviews and revelations presented in What Really Happened in Wuhan are testament to Sharri’s tenacity as an investigative news breaking journalist and her pursuit of the truth. While other media have pretended away crucial information, ignored the debates, or have been incurious about the possibility the virus may have been caused by a lab leak, Sharri has been relentless in her search of the facts, in questioning the right sources and asking the difficult questions.
“The impact of COVID-19 on the lives and livelihoods of so many Australians and people worldwide will be felt for decades to come. We are committed to covering all angles of this evolving global public health and policy debate.”
Sharri Markson’s debut book of the same title, published by HarperCollins, ‘What Really Happened in Wuhan’ is the first international book to investigate the COVID-19 laboratory leak theory. It is available pre-order from Booktopia and will be available from bookstores and online from 29 September.
Don’t miss the Australian television exclusive ‘What Really Happened in Wuhan’ on Monday September 20 at 8pm AEST on Sky News on Foxtel and Sky News Regional.
