Boston University Creates New COVID Strain with 80% Kill Rate

1917: U.S. suffragette Alice Paul begins a 7-month jail sentence for peacefully picketing in support of the women’s Suffrage (right to vote) Amendment at the White House in Washington, D.C.

Researchers at Boston University’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories have been condemned for creating a deadly new strain of COVID-19.

The new strain — a hybrid of the highly-contagious Omicron variant and the original virus that was discovered in Wuhan, China — killed 80% of the mice that researchers infected, according to the Daily Mail.

Boston University’s new research, which has not been peer reviewed, centers around the role of spike proteins in the pathogenic and antigenic behaviors of the virus.

Researchers wrote: “In…mice, while Omicron causes mild, non-fatal infection, the Omicron S-carrying virus inflicts severe disease with a mortality rate of 80 percent.”

The experiments eerily mirror similar research that was carried out by scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China ahead of the pandemic. The lab is just 8 miles from where the original virus was found.

“This should be totally forbidden, it’s playing with fire,” said Professor Shmuel Shapira, a top scientist in the Israeli Government.

Gain of function research the practice of manipulating a virus to become more infectious or deadly.

“The research is a clear example of gain of function research,” said Dr. Richard Ebright, a chemist at Rutgers University.

“If we are to avoid a next lab-generated pandemic, it is imperative that oversight of enhanced potential pandemic pathogen research be strengthened,” Ebright added.

    There is NO good reason to do such a thing, legal action must be taken immediately for the protection of the world, this is a hideous, terrorist stunt

    1. Bob Smith says:

      Sure is. Follow the trail of fentanyl coming into the US and distribute it to the manufacturers, mules and suppliers of this deadly drug. Also spread it around Wuhan and see how they like it.

  2. Anya says:

    That these recombinant viruses can emerge in the wild, as per the article, is something we cannot control. What we can and should control is the use of taxpayer dollars to create such strains.

  3. Woodrow Short says:

    These scientist need to destroy the virus and never make anything like this again. If they don’t they need to be fired.

    1. Bob says:

      So, we need to ignore the potential weaponization of viruses like Covid 19. There is no question that our enemies are actively seeking bioweapons like this. If we stick our heads into the sand and refuse to seek both the understanding of the mechanisms of deadly viruses and anti-viral compounds, we will be completely disarmed when one of our enemies releases a weaponized virus in the subways and airports of the USA. Good work Boston U. now produce the vaccine!

        I bet you’ve been jabbed rejabbed and boosted haven’t you?

    Does anyone at your publication bother to take the time to totally read the document perhaps you just cherry-pick the data so you can create a sensation for your readers….
