Manipulating viruses and risking pandemics is too dangerous. It’s time to stop.

Washington Post Editorial Page Opinion by Kevin M. Esvelt, October 6, 2021

For 20 years, taxpayer-funded research programs have sought to identify or create pandemic-causing viruses, all with surprisingly little transparency. The latest evidence of the problem surfaced on Sept. 21 when a group of online snoops released purportedly leaked documents revealing a 2018 grant proposal. The proposal, which went unfunded, sought $14.2 million for a project to discover, combine and engineer highly infectious SARS-like coronaviruses.

Brand New Tube, July 9, 2021

Not a lab leak nor natural origin, but manufactured for profit: EcoHealth (sic) Alliance head Peter Daszak quoted in 2015: “We need to increase public understanding of the need for medical countermeasures such as a pan-corona virus vaccine. A key driver is the media and the economics will follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of the process.” (Video frame: 28:50)

Where Did the Coronavirus Come From? What We Already Know Is Troubling.

New York Times, June 25, 2021

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2012 reported 11 laboratory-acquired infections across six years, often in BSL-3 labs. From 2015 to 2019, there were more than 450 reported accidents with pathogens that the federal government regulates because of their danger. Comparable rates of incidents were found in British labs — and research suggests lab accidents are not even always reported.
