    Scientists develop new lethal Covid strain that killed 80% of mice infected

    American researchers have developed a new lethal Covid strain in a laboratory – echoing experiments that many fear started the pandemic.

    WTF!  I thought those gain-of-function experiments are ILLEGAL in the US.

    The mutant variant — which is a hybrid of Omicron and the original Wuhan virus — killed 80 per cent of mice infected with it at Boston University.

    Mad scientists.

    This suggests the man-made virus might be the most contagious form yet.

    Just like the original virus!

    The lab, at Boston University’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories, is one of 13 biosafety level 4 labs in the US.

    These are labs that are authorized to handle the most dangerous pathogens. There are also facilities in Texas, Atlanta and Manhattan, Kansas.

    Experiments at these labs often involve tinkering with animal viruses to advance treatments and vaccines that could be used in a future outbreak.

    Treatments and vaccines, not the creation of newer, deadlier, more contagious new made-mad strains.

        (Nope) not when done under the “Self-defense” guise

        Mad scientists.
        (Nope) they know exactly what they are doing

        Just like the original virus! (Nope)
        Guarantee it is and probably made in conjunction with the most effective means of delivery in mind

        Treatments and vaccines, not the creation of newer, deadlier, more contagious new made-mad strains.
        (What money is there in that?) Gotta have the big bad so they can get the money for the treatments.

        Nothing to see here…
