Expert Warns That Fears of Chinese Coronavirus Being a Bioweapon Should Not Be Dismissed

The fake news is trying to sweep this concern under the rug.

Published

A molecular biologist is blowing the whistle regarding reports that the Chinese coronavirus was not designed as a weapon of bioterrorism.

Richard H. Ebright, a professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University, believes that it is entirely possible that the coronavirus could be a bioweapon and those claims should not be dismissed before serious inquiry can be conducted.

“A denial is not a refutation,” Ebright said in reference to Chinese virologist Shi Zhengli, who works at the research lab in Wuhan that has been widely speculated to be behind the coronavirus outbreak.

The research facility in Wuhan opened up in 2017 despite objections that highly infectious diseases could spread from the center. Just two years after it was established, the Chinese coronavirus pandemic would go on to rock the world:

A laboratory in Wuhan is on the cusp of being cleared to work with the world’s most dangerous pathogens. The move is part of a plan to build between five and seven biosafety level-4 (BSL-4) labs across the Chinese mainland by 2025, and has generated much excitement, as well as some concerns.

Some scientists outside China worry about pathogens escaping, and the addition of a biological dimension to geopolitical tensions between China and other nations. But Chinese microbiologists are celebrating their entrance to the elite cadre empowered to wrestle with the world’s greatest biological threats.

“It will offer more opportunities for Chinese researchers, and our contribution on the BSL‑4-level pathogens will benefit the world,” says George Gao, director of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Key Laboratory of Pathogenic Microbiology and Immunology in Beijing. There are already two BSL-4 labs in Taiwan, but the National Bio-safety Laboratory, Wuhan, would be the first on the Chinese mainland…

Many staff from the Wuhan lab have been training at a BSL-4 lab in Lyon, which some scientists find reassuring. And the facility has already carried out a test-run using a low-risk virus.

But worries surround the Chinese lab, too. The SARS virus has escaped from high-level containment facilities in Beijing multiple times, notes Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey. Tim Trevan, founder of CHROME Biosafety and Biosecurity Consulting in Damascus, Maryland, says that an open culture is important to keeping BSL-4 labs safe, and he questions how easy this will be in China, where society emphasizes hierarchy. “Diversity of viewpoint, flat structures where everyone feels free to speak up and openness of information are important,” he says.

Yuan says that he has worked to address this issue with staff. “We tell them the most important thing is that they report what they have or haven’t done,” he says. And the lab’s inter­national collaborations will increase openness. “Transparency is the basis of the lab,” he adds.

Ebright praised Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) for his willingness to push back against Chinese propaganda with regards to the origins of the coronavirus.

“After concealing the virus for many weeks in December and then minimizing its severity for most of January, they then peddle an origin story about the food market in Wuhan.” Cotton said during an interview with The Daily Caller.

“Given their dishonesty and the proximity of these labs, which we know were working with coronaviruses, it is only reasonable and responsible for us to ask the question and demand the answers,” he added.

Although Ebright does not necessarily contend that the coronavirus is a Chinese bioweapon, he advocates that the possibility should be thoroughly investigated.

Biden COVID Advisor Paid to Sponsor Mask Brand Claimed Product “Deactivates” Coronavirus

This could represent a serious ethics violation.

Published

An incoming Biden White House coronavirus advisor promoted a brand of mask he claims “deactivates” coronavirus, claiming on his personal podcast that Livinguard masks offer more protection to their wearers than other products.

All masks can curb the spread of COVID-19. Why I like the Livinguard masks, and why I wear them, is because they actually deactivate coronavirus thanks to their incredible patented technology that’s been shown to mitigate the spread of microorganisms like bacteria and viruses.

Slavitt confirmed that Livinguard is a “sponsor” to him, in some capacity.

Livinguard masks can be washed and reused, and they sell for as much as $30 on the company’s website. Various manufacturers of facemasks have made claims of health superiority as it pertains to their product.

Slavitt’s claim about the masks is not evaluated by the FDA, and the questionable nature of his claims could potentially incur the scrutiny of the health organization.

The former Obama administration official’s claim that the masks “deactivate” COVID is highly questionable. Experts generally agree that masks are more effective at preventing asymptomatic carriers from spreading the virus than they are in protecting the wearer from it, and Slavitt’s language implies the material of the mask is more effective in neutralizing COVID molecules than other fabric and cloth surfaces. Such a claim would represent a dramatic development in the fight against COVID, and it’s very likely the material would be adopted en masse to deter further spread of the disease.

Is Biden’s incoming coronavirus advisor a for-profit snake oil salesman?
