Restrictions imposed on the research into the origins of coronavirus by China

According to online notices published by two Chinese Universities as well as a central government directive, restrictions have been imposed on the publication of academic research on the origins of the novel coronavirus by the Chinese government. This is said to be one of the latest efforts by China to control the narrative about the origins and spread of the virus.

CCP everyone. West has been filling the coffers of few hundred corrupt and anti-scientific communists.

This is unbelievably despicable. Hiding information that might save lives just so their fragile egos can remain intact.

We have investigated ourselves and found that we did nothing wrong.

And they were talking all big before about how it was the CIA that had spread the virus in China. I would imagine they would like some proof to discredit their political opponents, but we all know that there's nothing more toxic for an authoritarian communist regime than facts and evidence

I'm hoping that the current university students and educators see what socialism really looks like now! The Chicoms have little regard for their own citizens let alone any other nations!

As I have already pointed out they wrote a paper about it. But nobody wants to comment about it. Nothing to see I guess? Engineering Coronaviruses to Evaluate Emergence and Pathogenic Potential. In order to predict whether a SARS-related bat CoV, named WIV1-CoV, discovered in Chinese horseshoe bats in Yunnan [6], had the potential to emerge in humans, Menachery et al. synthesized a full-DNA clone based on the sequence of the virus [1]. The clone was shown to be able to generate infectious virus in primary human airway epithelial cell culture, confirming its ability to efficiently replicate in human cells. When the spike gene of WIV1-CoV was used to replace that of SARS-CoV MA15, a mouse-adapted virus [7], the resulting CoV did not replicate efficiently or cause disease in mice. However, if transgenic mice that expressed the ACE2 receptor were used, WIV1-CoV was able to replicate and cause weight loss. These experiments showed that WIV1-CoV actually has significant potential to emerge in humans. Recently, there has been much discussion and debate on the potential threats of gain-of-function experiments [10]. There are fears that accidental release of these ‘super-virulent’ viruses or their use as biological weapons may lead to uncontrollable epidemics. However, we believe that these gain-of-function experiments should not be banned because of the potential threats. By contrast, each experiment should be carefully examined for the potential benefits weighed against potential threats. In our opinion, the potential benefits are enormous, as exemplified by the works by Menachery et al. 1, 2. It is the laboratory practice and conduct of the researchers that are most important in safeguarding any potential leakage of viruses.

That's right folks this is definitely not a bio-weapon nothing to see here keep moving keep moving.. And anyone suggesting that China lost control of a WMD is just plain racist!

China is BS. Top to bottom. Beginning to end. Every global death from Covid19 lays at the feet of China and it's communist propaganda machine.

This tells me THEY created it & they don't want any researchers to figure it out. Like the warren commision and the 911 commission Chinese style.

Plain wrong n also attempt to put method in place to obtain royalties from outside research n drug company patents....

The Chinese government has been reluctant to release information about the Coronavirus because they know that many countless people are aware of how they can manipulate figures.

Right now we are terribly annoyed with them chainamen. The less we hear about them the better. We need to start our distancing measures with them.

I say we turn China into a parking lot and be done with it. To many business and governments are afraid of pissing of China as there one of the fastest growing country's. All China cares about is making sure the CCP lasts and is in power 3 pandemics and still no one's done anything China is a liability and a danger to the rest of the world. I mean something has to be done or there just gonna keep doing the exact same thing and putting everyone else in danger .
