    Thank you very much for this explanation. I still don't understand what was the purpose of this research? Like what was the end game, what was it they were trying to find out and what was the potential benefit to people? Anything?

    The stated goal is to create viruses that could be in the wild and get ahead of the curve so that you can create treatments before they hit the population. The counter argument is creating a nuclear bomb to learn how to diffuse it is just stupid.
    The actual reason is that technology like this is "dual use". It is both a weapon and legit basic science research. I would bet the reason this project went ahead without U.S. funding is because the Chinese military picked up the bill. There is evidence that parts of the Wuhan lab are run by the Chinese military.

    Crazy. The deaths are on their heads IMO.

    Trump’s fake cure for COVID is responsible for 17,000 deaths

    Donald Trump began shilling for the use of hydroxychloroquine at the very first of what became his daily White House update on the COVID-19 pandemic. The drug is primarily used as an anti-parasitic, mostly in the treatment of malaria, and there was never any good evidence that it was effective in addressing COVID-19. Hydroxychloroquine can lower the number of infection-fighting white blood cells, making it possibly the worst type of medication for anyone trying to fight off an infection.

    However, in the earliest days of the pandemic, Trump declared the drug a “game changer” and began stockpiling millions of pills. Under pressure from Trump and TV host Dr. Oz, the FDA authorized emergency use of hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for COVID-19. The drug didn’t work. The U.S. ended up with a mountain of worthless pills. And Trump went right on promoting its use long after the FDA officially warned consumers not to use it.

    It’s impossible to know how much Trump’s promise that hydroxychloroquine was an effective treatment caused people to disregard the threat of COVID-19 or how much this opened the door to conspiracy theories about vaccines. But a new study in Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy puts an estimated number on deaths directly resulting from the use of this drug to treat COVID-19 patients: 16,990.

    That hydroxychloroquine was more likely to kill than to cure was known very early. A study released just one month after Trump began promoting the drug showed that patients given Trump’s wonder treatment were more likely to die. The treatment was found to have a strong association with heart issues, and the results were so clear and overwhelming that the trial use of the drug was suspended ahead of schedule.

    Those same results have now been confirmed by researchers in France who looked at the use of hydroxychloroquine across six countries. In all cases, the use of the drug with COVID-19 patients increased the rate of deaths. Overall, patients who were administered hydroxychloroquine were 11% more likely to die than those who were not.


    Money shot:





    It appears that god hates fags and the mRNA covid vaccine.

    Oakland schools allow COVID-positive students to attend class


    KRON) — Thousands of students in the Oakland Unified School District are returning to their classrooms after winter break with fewer COVID-19 rules imposed by the district.

    OUSD announced new COVID isolation protocols Monday for students and school staff members based on updated guidance from the California Department of Public Health.

    In a turnaround from 2020’s strict stay-at-home protocols, students can now go to class even if they test positive for the virus, according to a message from the OUSD COVID Response Team.

    You would think that an actual MD would understand that an mRNA segment does absolutely nothing to our "genome".

    I am sure people, who took 9th biology decades ago and did poorly, would do their own research and disagree.

    I feel like we're hearing of so many young people, men in particular, dying from cardiac arrest. not saying it's the vax, but there is something at work we don't yet understand
