Coronavirus 'optimized for transmission between humans' in way never before seen: 전 주부 관리

“갑자기 나왔어, 박쥐 매개 코로나 바이러스가 없었던 방식으로 인간 간의 전파에 최적화되었습니다.. 그래서 무슨 일이야? A pangolin gets mated with a bat gets mated with a furin cleavage site of a human being? How does that happen? It’s not probable. 사실로, it was statistically 1 에 13 백만에서 1 에 13 십억, when I talked to our bio-statisticians,” 그는 말했다 “이야기.”

The virustrue origins remain unknown, but the possibility it accidentally leaked from a Wuhan lab known for its risky coronavirus experiments has gained increasing credence in recent months. The Wuhan Institute of Virology has conducted so-calledgain of function” 연구, which involves modifying a virus to make it more infectious among humans.

FORMER STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: PROBE INTO COVID ORIGINS FOUND ALMOST NO EVIDENCE SUPPORTING NATURAL ORIGIN

Former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield said in March that he believed the virus most likely escaped from a lab, pointing to how efficiently it transmitted.

I have spent my life in virology,” 그는 CNN에 말했다. “I do not believe this somehow came from a bat to a human. And at that moment in time, the virus that came to the human became one of the most infectious viruses that we know in humanity for human to human transmission. Normally when a pathogen goes from a zoonotic to human, it takes a while for it to figure out how to become more and more efficient in humans, human transmission. I just don’t think this makes biological sense.

Asher, a contractor for the State Department during the Trump administration, 폭스 뉴스에 말했다 on Thursday that the government probe he led last year into the origins of the 코로나 바이러스 found practically no evidence COVID-19 originated from nature. He said that while he welcomed the new intelligence probe into the virusorigins ordered by 바이든 대통령, it would likely only bring old information to light.

SCIENTISTS AT WUHAN LAB IN COVID PROBE ADMITTED BEING BITTEN BY BATS: 보고서

Asher helped draft the Trump State Department memo released Jan. 15 that said the Wuhan Institute of Virology was not a merely civilian institution and had collaborated on secret projects with the Chinese military since 2017.

We had very definitive information, only a bit of which we put out publicly, that showed they were engaged in this classified, secret effort to develop these super viruses and that it appeared it had spilled out of that laboratory,” 그는 말했다. “That was the only plausible information that we were presented.

Asher said the National Institutes of Health and CDC wouldn’t provide proof that the virus originated from nature, 그것을 호출 “joke.

Asher’s investigation came out of the State Department’s arms control and verification (AVC) bureau and initially launched at the request of former Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo before ending 올해.
