Published Wednesday, March 24th, 2021 by Independent Science News, “An Interview with Richard Ebright: The WHO Investigation Members Were “participants in disinformation.” Interviewed by Jorge Casesmeiro Roger.
Synopsis: In this exclusive and wide-ranging interview with Prof. Richard Ebright, the long-time critic of risky pathogen research is asked about the merits of the WHO investigation, its personnel, and its forthcoming report. The interview also asks about Gain-of-Function (GoF) research and the surprising silence of the Cambridge Working Group. In the interview Dr. Ebright describes how US scientific leaders deliberately circumvented the GoF research pause placed on them. The directors of NIAID and NIH even stymied risk-benefit assessment of such research.
Could SARS-CoV-2 have come from a lab? This online talk by Dr Jonathan Latham was presented to the EAT community on Jan 8th 2021. It describes our current thinking on the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. In short, the evidence for a zoonotic origin is virtually non-existent, whereas several strong lines of evidence point to a lab escape. This is the first of three talks investigating theories of the origin of the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2 virus). Talk 2 details various lab origin theories including the Mojiang Miners Passage theory. Talk 3 describes the economic and political incentives to suppress discussion of a likely lab origin. The online talk can be watched here:
