Last month, a group of 18 scientists published a letter called for an in-depth investigation into the origin of COVID-19 to give serious consideration to the lab-leak hypothesis – stating that the virus had escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Now, a number of scientists, including MIT and Harvard geneticist Alina Chan, It is claimed that scientists avoided the lab-leak hypothesis because they did not want to be associated with former President Trump, according to NBC News.
Chan there scared some scientists about the public discussing the lab hypothesis in the lab for fear that their words might be mispronounced or used to support racist rhetoric about how the coronavirus came out. Trump has launched accusations that the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a research lab in the city where the first case of Covid-19 was reported, is connected to the outbreak, and on several occasions he called the pathogen “Wuhan virus” or “if flu.”
The change shows how some scientists who previously avoided the subject or quickly removed it battled the uncertain origin of the virus, independent of the politics covered in such discussions during the Trump administration.
So while America is being told to follow science, scientists choose to play politics.
“At the time, it was more frightening to be with Trump and be a tool for racists, so the public didn’t want to call someone for an investigation into the lab’s origins., ”Chan said.
The ‘surroundings’ in recent months have also pointed to China’s lack of transparency.
there three main theories rotates, according to the report:
- The virus is naturally mutated before humans are vaccinated from an infected animal.
- The virus changes naturally, but a lab employee was caught from a sample and accidentally “injected” it into the community.
- Lab scientists manipulated samples of the virus and unintentionally or unintentionally released the pathogen.
“If we have a pandemic caught near a BSL-4 lab in the US, the first thing you ask is if they are working with the pathogen in that lab,” said Andrew Reed, an expert in evolutionary genetics of infectious diseases and a Penn State biology professor – who warns that even if the purpose of the lab leak, it doesn’t have to be meant is the most explanatory (it is).
As the Daily wire “David Asher, who led the Trump administration’s investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, SAYS in an interview last month he had biostatisticians from the U.S. government calculated that the chances of the coronavirus developing from nature and they estimated at about 1-in-13 billion. ”
If ‘science’ alone is more interested in facts than politics, we are especially on the path to accountability:
