I did not realize that a) there are legitimate, non-weaponization reasons to conduct “gain of function” research AND b) that the Obama put brakes on the research here BECAUSE OF THE RISK following two release incidents. Those two facts make it entirely possible that the virus escaped from an “offshore” lab (Wuhan instead of US) and even that it was their for legitimate but risky “gain of function” research

That’s significant to know because it goes to whether the US and other countries should even engage in this kind of research, the very reason they formed a board to weigh the alleged benefit versus the risk.

China OBVIOUSLY would not want it to get out that its lab had an error that killed millions. Still very speculative but definitely worth getting to the bottom of.
