What can the rest of the world learn?About 26 percent of Americans say they won’t take a vaccine, according to an April 21-26 CNN poll. Getting the pandemic under control in the US could be challenging without their buy-in.

In a letter published in the science journal on Thursday, May 13, a group of scientists asserts that there are not enough elements to determine if the origin of CVIV-19 is natural or if it comes from a leak accident of a laboratory. The authors of the letter claim that no hypothesis is dismissed.

In total, about twenty scientists, some of which are recognized worldwide for their work on viruses, wrote this letter . In their platform, scientists call for an investigation of all possible origins of the SARS-COV-2 . They also remain cautious on the hypothesis that affirms that a bat virus would probably have reached man, via an intermediate animal.

Will Covid-19 vaccines protect you against variants? 9 questions about variants, answered.

  Will Covid-19 vaccines protect you against variants? 9 questions about variants, answered. How coronavirus variants are affecting vaccines, treatments, and our attempts to return to normal.More than one in three of these new cases were reported in India, the world’s second-most-populous country and now the epicenter of Covid-19. The rising infections, deaths, and strained health system have created a humanitarian crisis, one that may not relent for months.

According to these biologists, no element "has been found to support it", while the thesis of a laboratory accident has not been sufficiently examined. Moreover, the work of the common mission of Chinese and international experts , copiliated by WHO at the beginning of the year, had failed to raise all suspicions.

China rejects the hypothesis of laboratory leak

The authors of this letter believe that the World Health Organization , which investigated the origins of the pandemic, did not carry out an "examination" Balanced "of the theory that coronavirus could come from a laboratory. "We must take the hypotheses on natural and laboratory contagions seriously until we have enough data," adds the scientists

China, however, rejected the theory of the accident on many occasions, but it must Also deal with the publication of three academic work, carried out in Wuhan and disclosed on Twitter by the account of an anonymous scientist. They reveal that The Virology Institute of the City led experiences aimed at changing certain pathogens.

Although Chinese scientists claimed that no leakage has taken place, the authors of the letter claim that a new survey is conducted more independent, more objective and more transparent.

'Tucker Carlson Tonight' host examines coronavirus origins and highlights how mainstream media has changed their tune when it comes to the pandemic.Finding out was more than a matter of simple curiosity. It was an urgent public health imperative. If you want to prevent the next disaster, you have to determine how the current one happened. That’s why we have an NTSB. If we didn’t investigate plane crashes very carefully, planes would keep crashing, and you would never fly.  So as this virus spread around the world, the rest of us waited for some credible public health authority — the CDC, the WHO, anyone — to come forward with details on where it came from.
