damn it Randy!

It's funny because it's a preprint about things we already knew.

The vaxholes will double down. Again.

First, they came -- for the pangolin -- I said nothing.

/what sound does a pangolin maek?

Doesn't necessarily exclude WIV.  For example, if a technician was told to euthanize and destroy test animals and instead decided to sell them to his uncle/cousin/friend for sale in the wet market for some extra cash.

We'll probably never really know because the government of the People's Republic of China will perpetually lie about it.

I could go for having a couple of those around the house.

Wow, two new studies and neither of them are published or peer-reviewed.

It's my wife's job to monitor such things and as an interested amateur I was watching too.
In case it all passed you by. Covid 19 wasn't just a conspiracy theory.

Seems like a really strange place to locate a bio-weapons lab.

LawPD: Seems like a really strange place to locate a bio-weapons lab.


Hiding it in plain sight to avoid attention.

The coincidence is what makes the lab leak theory very obvious. "Wait, you're telling me this pandemic first showed up in an animal market RIGHT NEAR the lab experimenting with viruses?!"

China would never know if that happened. It's not like whoever was reselling animals is going to admit it.

still alive.

Since china has such a stellar safety record, I find it appalling that anyone could suggest that it came out of a lab. A virology lab. A lab that studies viruses.
 
2022-03-02 3:11:25 PM  
Just don't ask which came first: zoonosis, or take out for the Wuhan Virology Institute lunch bunch.

We COULD be taking a closer look at how coronaviruses evolve and jump between species, or even trying to predict the next variant, but instead the usual suspects are wasting time and money looking for someone to hit.

Say we get a smoking gun that shows the virus was leaked from WIV. Then what? Economic sanctions? War? Xi spanked on live TV? No. China will brush us off, politicians will make fiery speeches, and you'll keep buying cheap crap from Walmart.

"WELL, ACTUALLY..."

That's what Wuhan and even the US was doing when SARS I and then MERS looked as if they were going to be pandemical.

Or course, since Obama set it up, TFG quickly killed it even before COVID-19.

The US gov't used to properly fund and run the NAMRU labs who find new viruses before the break containment.  Their budget was something like $50mil a year but that program was nearly scrapped.

Part of the political nonsense involved other countries not paying their fair share.  That was mostly due to the WHO's incompetency.  The WHO has lots of very good doctors but about half the organization is political idiots being promoted out of their national medical HQs to get them out of the way.  Those people wouldn't know a virus from a hamster but do throw good parties and having their staff fill out expense reports.

One of the first things TFG did. It's suspicious.

I wish Randy Paul's gain-of-function research would lead to him gaining a spine.

/that won't happen as long the Russian checks keep clearing at the bank

I'll take him gaining a functional prefrontal cortex. The man is not bright.

Most relevant part is at the very end:

"Zenodo publishes preliminary scientific reports that are not peer-reviewed and, therefore, should not be regarded as conclusive, guide clinical practice/health-related behavior, or treated as established information."
