stock here: This was also conducted with your tax dollars funding the equipment. Not sure how this is even remotely possible in the USA. USA outlawed GOF research and that is why Fauci et al was funding Wuhan to do their dirty work.
stock here: Boston tries a debunk (far below) but here is the low down. They crossed Omicron and Delta. Omicron is moss transmissible than Delta, so more will get infected and quicker (over whelming the system perchance). Using the support below, lets agree that Omicron is 10 times more transmissible and grows faster in the body. Agreed??
So below is my Excel analysis. The newly created Virus has a 916% higher kill rate, and it kills faster. If you expand this to a human model, it would mean that for sure you would overwhelm the hospital system, and the effective kill rate would be even higher.
How is this not Gain of Function??
Boston University refuted several allegations by saying that even though we achieved Gain of Function it was just a by product and we did not intend to achieve Gain of Function, therefore it was not Gain Of Function research.
They also postulate that we should not be attacking their research, because the wages of the researchers were paid by Boston U, and therefore they were not obligated to report anything, and because of that you shouldn’t take issue with anything they did report.
They also said that the 80% death rate in mice was “taken out of context” because they used a type of mouse that was especially susceptible to SARS, therefore the 80% number was blown out of proportion even though it was 100% true.
Does tone deaf even begin to describe this?
They go further to state that because the research has a possible future benefit in being prepared for advanced bio-weapons, by creating the advanced bio-weapons, that we should not worried that they created advanced bio-weapons.
Hmmm….that almost makes sense, LOL
What do y’all think?
Forbes actually covered this, here
They bring up a salient point, their new “hybrid” SARS ONLY killed 80% of the mice, whereas the original SARS-2 killed 100% of the mice.
On the surface that sounds somewhat logical. But the THIS the point….by intergrating the Omicron Spike into the particularly deadly Delta structure, they made the whole package, say, 50 TIMES more transmissable. It kills 20% less of those that get infected, but 5000% more get infected.
See how that works?
Oh, and this is just a pre-print, another reason to ignore it until further notice.
