Scientists demand that Gates stop creating new viruses

Dr. Richard Ebright, a professor of chemistry and chemical biology
at Rutgers University and laboratory director of the Waksman
Institute of Microbiology, slammed the Bill Gates-funded Imperial
College's research. This is insanity, both in terms of the redundancy
and waste," Ebright warned. He argued such research presents
a "risk of triggering a new pandemic wave upon accidental or
deliberate release of the laboratory-generated viruses."
Ebright, who earned his Ph.D. in Microbiology and Molecular
Genetics from Harvard University, pointed out that this research
would not benefit anyone or anything as there are no "foreseeable
practical applications," and the study brings greater risk than gain
if there is even any.
The trial, which included 20 researchers and a member of the British
government's advisory panel, was partially funded by taxpayers.
In the study conducted in a biosafety level 3 lab, they "infected
hamsters with two chimera COVID hybrids," combining aspects
of the original coronavirus strain with parts of the omicron and delta
As per the preprint study's abstract, the experiment raised "the
concerning possibility that future variants" of COVID-19 could have
more severe effects than those "seen during omicron infection."
Ebright was firm that the research is hazardous, despite a university
spokesperson claiming that the procedure was safe and adhered to
appropriate regulations.
"If the world wishes to avoid new pandemic waves and pandemics
caused by lab-generated enhanced potential pandemic pathogens, then
it is urgently necessary to restrict senseless high-risk, low-benefit
research that creates enhanced potential pandemic pathogens and
to implement effective national oversight, with the force of law, on
such research," Ebright said.
Professor Shmuel Shapira, former head of the Israeli government's
Institute for Biological Research, agreed with Ebright and called for
an outright stop of research such as Imperial's, adding that this
is like "playing with fire" due to the risk of a laboratory leak.
Strong pieces of evidence are coming out recently proving that the
original SARS-CoV-2 virus have originated at the Wuhan Institute
of Virology (WIV), a Chinese laboratory known to have been
conducting research on bat coronaviruses with the partial funding
of the U.S. government via nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance.
Toy Reid, an expert in "official speak" used in Chinese government
reports, worked on a Senate report supporting the lab-leak theory.
He was able to uncover documents that contain hidden warning
messages about the WIV incidents in November 2019.
The coded messages within reports from the Chinese lab included
cryptic references to a "grave situation," "hidden dangers" and
"severe consequences" and are believed to possibly provide new
evidence that the virus leaked from a lab.
The same documents described how Dr. Ji Changzheng, technology
safety and security director for the Chinese Academy of Sciences,
visited the lab bearing "important oral remarks and written
instructions" from Chinese President Xi Jinping and Premier
Li Keqiang.
Nonprofit newsroom Pro Publica and Vanity Fair magazine acquired
a copy of the full report, interviewed Reid and submitted his
analysis to three independent experts. They fact-checked his work
and arrived at the same conclusion.
