U.S. National Institute’s Of Healh Gave $3.7M Grant To Wuhan Lab At The Center Of Coronavirus Leak Scrutiny — To Study Bats And Coronavirus
 
     Well, I am not sure anyone saw this coming, London’s the DailyMail.com is reporting that the U.S. National Institute’s Of Health (NIH) gave a $3.7M grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology — to carry out experiments on bats and the threat of coronavirus. Frances Mulraney and Glenn Owen posted an article to the April 11, 2020 edition of the DailyMail, noting that “the $37M Wuhan Institute of Virology, the most advanced lab of its type on the Chinese mainland, is based twenty miles from the now infamous wildlife market” that was though to have been the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.
     The Wuhan Institute of Virology “lists the NIH, as well as the University of Alabama, the University of North Texas, Harvard Unviersity, and the National Wildlife Federation as partners of the lab,” the DailyMail reported. “As part of the research at the Wuhan facility, scientists grew coronavirus in the lab and injected it into three-day old piglets.”
     “A second institute in the city, the Wuhan Center for Disease Control — which is barely three miles from the infamous animal/fish/fowl ‘wet market,’ — also reportedly has conducted experiments involving animals and the coronavirus,” the publication noted.
     Obviously, this revelation will be used by China to blame the United States for the coronavirus pandemic — even though China built the lab in the aftermath of the 2003 SARS outbreak — in order to better understand coronaviruses, MERS, and other infectious diseases. I an not a scientist, nor a doctor; but, I do worry here that all this kind of research being completely stopped. Granted, all such study needs to be stopped until we are able to definitively know the origin of the outbreak — if we can — and, an exhaustive investigation undertaken to review security and safety protocols in place at these kind of labs. Perhaps this kind of work can//should only be done at a BL-4 level containment facility. But, to halt these expirements completely and indefinitely, could be just as dangerous as what apprars to have occurred here. Maybe scientists can conduct modeling and simulation and use artificial intelligence and machine learning to better understand these viruses and the threat they pose. But, I do not know whether scientists can ever completely understand these viruses and the threat they pose — without having access to the real thing. It is a complicated issue; and, clearly needs a serious, thoughtful review by our best and brightest. An over-reaction in this case, could do us more harm than good. RCP, fortunascorner.com

  1. Hi, I do think this is a great site. I stumbledupon it 😉 I’m going to revisit once again since i have saved as a favorite it. Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide other people.

  2. Whew! For years I wondered if others “saw” words, phrases, people, moods, words, numbers in color. I always have. I’m an artist so I’ve always used it to guide me in my work. Once I tried describing how the number 67 reminds me of cola or how the number 42 is pink, I got a crazy stair…So glad I’m not alone! I also can remember people by their “aura” color…when my twin daughters were born, I always saw one as yellow and the other as pink…It turns out their personalities match to me. HA! I’m not crazy!!! Amzaing that there’s a name for it. 🙂

  8. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you|

  9. El cliente del C es el que busca un estilo distinto al de la clásica berlina de representación, como el A , serie 5 clase E, y los clientes de éstos últimos raramente contemplarán la opción de adquirir un C . Lo mas complejo del coche es la suspension, que aclaro, es diferente de la del C5. El C5 monta la III+, mientras que el C monta la III+ pilotada, con 32 leyes de suspension que se adaptan al instate al terreno y a tu estilo de conduccion. Ahora bien, como dije de las arriesgadas y fracasadas apuestas de Renault en la gama alta, este coche es una maravilla para lo que la gente busca.
