BU creates new SARS-CoV-2 strain that is 80% fatal
By combining the spike protein from Omicron to the original Wuhan strain, researchers at BU produced a new strain of COVID that is 80% deadly. Your tax dollars at work!
Presumably there is some benefit to creating a new strain of SARS-CoV-2 that has a case fatality rate (CFR) of 80% (up from the average 0.2% CFR for the current variants) and is highly contagious.
I’m baffled as to what it is.
However, if history is any guide, I’m sure that members of Congress (with the exception of Senators Ron Johnson and Rand Paul) will undoubtedly want to keep funding this research (by keeping Fauci in charge) because they don’t want to be labeled “anti-science.”
Yet another reason to re-elect Senator Ron Johnson and ensure that the Republicans control the Senate.
A highly contagious respiratory virus with an 80% case fatality rate seems to me like a bad idea, but what do I know?
Here’s an idea how fast it could spread. Look at the slope of the purple curve… that’s Omicron. This is from a CDC paper. So expect the virus to spread everywhere in about a month.
How fast will it wipe out the entire US population if released? It depends on how quickly the virus kills humans.
The work was supported by a grant from NIH, specifically from NIAID which is the organization that Anthony Fauci heads.
Here is the paper. It was published on October 14, 2022 (four days ago). I don’t believe any US news media picked it up. From the abstract:
In K18-hACE2 mice, while Omicron causes mild, non-fatal infection, the Omicron S-carrying virus inflicts severe disease with a mortality rate of 80%.
Why Fauci isn’t fired is baffling. I called for this in my original 285-page article that was published over a year ago on May 25, 2021 in Trial Site News.
Nobody is talking.
There were no whistleblowers in the research team. Everyone thought this research was fine. We only find out about it after the fact.
Nobody in Congress, the mainstream media, or the medical community is speaking out about this.
Hi Steve, its been about seven months since you posted the very informative and important article on gain of function research conducted at BU that was funded by the NIH that produced a CFR (case fatality rate) of 80% by removing spike from Omicron and combining with the Wuhan strain. I see the article has been cited in 11 articles according to Dimensions. The article has also been Tweeted 8030 times, viewed by 225 news outlets, and mentioned in 14 blogs as of today. Is it just me, or has enthusiasm for potential nefarious impact on the global population gone the way of crickets?
