Breaking Admission: You Won't Believe The Reason Harvard Scientist Covered For China
Shortly after the pandemic broke out last year Trump explained that this virus likely came from their Wuhan lab. It was a pretty straightforward assumption when you consider that they have a whole lab devoted to it called The Wuhan Novel Respiratory Coronavirus lab. But Dems/Libs and refused to back Trump. They refused to see reason and even consider the most obvious source. Alina Chan, a postdoctoral associate at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University who specializes in genetic engineering claims that scientist dodged the theory, that makes the most sense, because of the association with Trump.
"Chan said there had been trepidation among some scientists about publicly discussing the lab leak hypothesis for fear that their words could be misconstrued or used to support racist rhetoric about how the coronavirus emerged. Trump fueled accusations that the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a research lab in the city where the first Covid-19 cases were reported, was connected to the outbreak, and on numerous occasions, he called the pathogen the "Wuhan virus" or "kung flu."
"At the time, it was scarier to be associated with Trump and to become a tool for racists, so people didn't want to publicly call for an investigation into lab origins," she said.
Now, more scientists are comfortable confronting the gamut of plausible theories — particularly given China's opacity about the topic — although many still caution that entertaining the idea of a lab leak requires clear scientific proof, which hasn't materialized."
"At the heart of those suspicions is the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a research facility founded in the 1950s that was the first in China to receive the highest level of biosafety clearance. The institute's lab has a biosafety level of 4 (known as BSL-4, the highest level), meaning it is equipped to study the world's highest-risk infectious agents and toxins, those that require the strictest biocontainment measures. It's that designation, and the lab's location in the city where the outbreak was first reported, that made the institute an early suspect.
"If we had a pandemic that was sourced near to a BSL-4 lab in the U.S., the first thing you would be asking is if they were working with that pathogen in that lab," said an expert on evolutionary genetics of infectious diseases, Andrew Read, a professor of biology at Penn State."
So scientists refused to even consider the most obvious source, just because it was Trump that brought light to it... So they in turn covered for China and are only now accepting this possibility because Biden wants to look into it. Is this ethical to avoid the most obvious source of this pandemic just because they don't like Trump? How much faster would we have had a vaccine? China would have been forced to take responsibility for infecting the world, but all these biased scientists did is give China ample time to get rid of any evidence of their involvement.
