In response to the viral Project Veritas video, Pfizer has publicly denied conducting any Gain of Function, or Directed Evolution research in developing their COVID-19 vaccine!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Is Pfizer Mutating COVID-19 Virus Using Gain of Function / Directed Evolution?!
Project Veritas recently released a viral “sting” video involving Jordon Trishton Walker, who was identified as the Pfizer Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning.
In that viral video, short clips were edited to show Jordon Trishton Walker telling a Project Veritas journalist that Pfizer is mutating the COVID-19 virus to continue profiting from vaccines!
Project Veritas also edited their blurbs to make it sound like Jordon was admitting that the COVID-19 virus was created in Wuhan, China.

Pfizer Denies Gain of Function, Directed Evolution Claims!
At 8 PM on Friday, January 27, 2023, Pfizer issued a public statement to address the gain of function and directed evolution claims made in the Project Veritas video.
The statement did not address whether Jordon Trishton Walker is a Pfizer employee, or a consultant on secondment from the Boston Consulting Group.
Instead, the statement directly refutes the allegations that Pfizer conducted gain of function, or directed evolution research in developing its COVID-19 vaccine. Here is a quick summary of what Pfizer said:
Research Involving Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine
- Pfizer has not conducted gain of function research in the ongoing development of its COVID-19 vaccine.
- Pfizer has not conducted directed evolution research in the ongoing development of its COVID-19 vaccine.
- Working with partners (like BioNTech), Pfizer has modified the original SARS-CoV-2 virus so it produces the spike protein from new variants of concern that have been identified by public health authorities, to test their immune escape potential against antibodies produced by its COVID-19 vaccine antibodies.
This matches up with what Jordon Trishton Walker actually said in the viral Project Veritas video – Pfizer did not actually conduct any gain-of-function, or directed evolution research.
Research Involving Pfizer PAXLOVID
- Pfizer has also performed laboratory (in vitro) work to identify potential mutations that can cause resistance to nirmatrelvir – one of the two antiviral components in its PAXLOVID oral treatment for COVID-19.
- Most of this work was conducted using computer simulations, or mutations of the main protease – an enzyme the virus uses to breaks down proteins.
- However, Pfizer may engineer the SARS-CoV-2 virus to allow the assessment of antiviral activity in cells.
- These in vitro resistance selection experiments are conducted in cells incubated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and nirmatrelvir in a secure Biosafety Level 3 (BSL3) laboratory, to assess whether the main protease enzyme can mutate to become resistant to nirmatrelvir.
Pfizer appears to be admitting that it does engineer the COVID-19 virus, but clarifying that it was not done to create new vaccines. Rather, such research is being done to determine if PAXLOVID may potentially fail to work against a new variant.
Pfizer does not state whether they are engineering SARS-CoV-2 through gain-of-function or directed evolution, but such research is being conducted to determine whether the virus can mutate to become resistant to nirmatrelvir, which is the new protease inhibitor they developed.
However, as I pointed out in my earlier article, Pfizer does not actually need to perform such research to develop new COVID-19 vaccines using mRNA technology.
