"Here, we outline our efforts early in the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak to propagate and characterize an Australian isolate of the virus in vitro and in an ex vivo model of human airway epithelium, as well as to demonstrate the susceptibility of domestic ferrets (Mustela putorius furo) to SARS-CoV-2 infection following intranasal challenge...SARS-CoV-2 hCoV-19/Australia/VIC01/2020 (VIC01) Passage 1 was obtained from the Victorian Infectious Diseases Reference Laboratory (VIDRL; Melbourne, VIC, Australia; Caly et al., 2020)."

Good work! Why are the names secret? National or personal security if things go wrong?

Australia's WIV?


"The Pentagon gave $39 MILLION to Dr. Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance - the charity that funded coronavirus research at the Wuhan lab accused of being the source of the outbreak"

same level of security as Wuhan?


"The lab -- the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory (Level 4) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences -- works with and studies the world’s most dangerous pathogens such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), and Ebola. However, scientists had warned in 2017 that a dangerous virus could escape the lab."

daszak certainly gets about !

Thanks for the link, very well written.

Beliefs rule the world, they are like a shortcut, shield and sword in the battle of life.

Bad though when so many people believe that there are too many people in the world. Wouldn't matter how many people they myrdered though because its the 2% of high functioning sociopaths doing 99,999% of all the worlds harm. Reduce our number and they'll still do the same damage while reducing the numbers of us that stand to stop them.

I also came across information that the US navy was asking for people of Caucasian or Russian heritage to donate synovial fluid. Then a second report different site was claiming bioweapon research in Ukraine was exploring genetic targeting of these specific genetic groups- funded by Obama et al through DOD eleven hundred of those samples were sent to an Unamed Australian institute according to paperwork found in Ukraine.
