Averting Our Gaze From Biowarfare: Pandemics and Self-fulfilling Prophecies

 

“Government regulators have no idea how often laboratories working with some of the world’s most dangerous viruses and bacteria are failing to fully kill vials of specimens before sending them to other researchers who lack critical gear to protect them against infection, according to a new report by the Government Accountability Office.” (9/21/16)

Lookin good, Dems. Lookin real good.

Instead of health care for the population, Democrats prefer this guy.

American scientific journals are lying to the American public, uncritically pumping official Chinese government claims onto their front pages and not examining any contradictory evidence.

 

 7 P.M. on December 30, 2019. Moments later Shi Zhengli’s cell phone rang. It was her boss, the institute’s director. The Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention had detected a novel coronavirus in two hospital patients with atypical pneumonia,

 

When?
How many?
Scientific American does a puff piece on the heroic Shi Zhengli, who remains the top suspect in this coronavirus pandemic.

In other words, Fouchier’s research took a flu virus that did not exhibit airborne transmission, then infected a number of ferrets until it mutated to the point that it was transmissible by air.  (in 2012)

 

I’ve been pursuing this story for several months, but I’d like to be paid for the research. Remember the seemingly innocuous term “animal passage.”

Sam Husseini beat me to the punch at Salon:

Did this virus come from a lab? Maybe not — but it exposes the threat of a biowarfare arms race

 

Despite objections, Fouchier’s article was published by Science in June 2012. Titled “Airborne Transmission of Influenza A/H5N1 Virus Between Ferrets,” it summarized how Fouchier’s research team made the pathogen more virulent:

Highly pathogenic avian influenza A/H5N1 virus can cause morbidity and mortality in humans but thus far has not acquired the ability to be transmitted by aerosol or respiratory droplet (“airborne transmission”) between humans. To address the concern that the virus could acquire this ability under natural conditions, we genetically modified A/H5N1 virus by site-directed mutagenesis and subsequent serial passage in ferrets. The genetically modified A/H5N1 virus acquired mutations during passage in ferrets, ultimately becoming airborne transmissible in ferrets.

Ahd there’s quite a bit more in the Salon piece:

The Guardian ran a piece in 2014, “Scientists condemn ‘crazy, dangerous’ creation of deadly airborne flu virus,” after Kawaoka created a life-threatening virus that “closely resembles the 1918 Spanish flu strain that killed an estimated 50m people”:

Next morning:

“Tweet is unavailable!”

Is Twitter now censoring for Biden as well?
