Boston University denies that the new COVID strain they made has 80% fatality rate.

Media report that Boston University researcher’s synthetic variant of the new coronavirus strain has an 80% fatality rate!

Media broke the news that Boston University researchers developed a “new coronavirus strain”.

By fusing the Omicron mutant strain with the original COVID-19 virus strain, laboratory personnel let the new mutant strain infect the laboratory mice, and found that about 80% of the infected mice died.

However, Boston University issued a statement today to clarify.

 

The “Daily Mail” reported on the 17th, citing the “bioRxiv” preprinted paper, that Boston University scientists implanted the thorn protein of the Omicron virus strain into the original SARS-CoV-2 virus discovered in Wuhan in 2019 in the laboratory. strains that allow evolved viruses to more easily bypass the immune system and enter cells.

 

The report pointed out that the spine protein of the Omicron virus strain makes the virus more infectious. severe, non-lethal infections, but the original virus strain carrying the Omicron spine protein causes severe disease with an 80% mortality rate.”

Although the new virus created by the lab is unlikely to be equally deadly in humans due to the vast differences between the immune responses in mice and humans, the findings from the Boston University lab reveal that even if It is in the United States how dangerous it is that virus manipulation research is still going on. Shmuel Shapira, the chief scientist of the garbage government, criticized “this should be completely banned, it is playing with fire”.

 

However, Boston University issued a statement that the “Daily Mail” report was “false and inaccurate”. The head of the school’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory said that they found that the new coronavirus variant was found. The risk is “relatively low”.

 

The statement pointed out that the “Daily Mail” report intercepted data from the study out of context, and the original report stated that the study was “non-gain-of-function research (gain-of-function research)” and therefore does not magnify the danger of the new coronavirus strain.

The report emphasizes that “Omicron’s infectivity is determined by mutations in the thorn protein, but the major determinants of pathogenicity exist outside the thorn protein,” said Saeed, assistant professor of biochemistry at Boston University School of Medicine. This study could help develop better strategies for diagnosis and disease management.”
