In the wake of mass speculation and gibbering, the White House asked experts to examine the possible origins of nCoV.
The White House on Thursday asked U.S. scientists and medical researchers to investigate the scientific origins of the novel coronavirus, as misinformation about the outbreak spreads online.
The director of the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), in a letter to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, requested that scientific experts “rapidly” look into the origins of the virus in order to address both the current spread and “to inform future outbreak preparation and better understand animal/human and environmental transmission aspects of coronaviruses.”
The national academies consist of private, nonprofit institutions charged with providing scientific support to the federal government.
It’s obvious that this thing overwhelmingly predominately affects Asians, particularly Asian males. Some suggest it is a weaponization. I have a developing theory, based on questioning cui bono? I’ll keep that in the pocket for now. Interesting.
