Gain-of-function research modifies a virus to increase both its infectious and lethal nature, and it modifies a virus to target specific animal species, in this case, humans. The stated purpose of this research is to second guess what nature would do in creating such pathogens so scientists could be forewarned and better able to combat such disease-causing agents in the future.
Unfortunately, this research can also be used to create deadly viruses as biological weapons.
Waving the moratorium on gain-of-function research allowed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to fund gain-of-function research at the lab in Wuhan, China, that’s suspected of manufacturing COVID-19 and accidentally releasing this deadly virus during a lab accident.
But COVID-19 isn’t the only pandemic America is dealing with. The other pandemics are manmade political crises. For instance, we’re witnessing an unprecedented flood of illegal migration across our southern border. The Biden Administration has also elevated climate change as a near-term crisis. And the President claims that systemic racism is an immediate threat to our democracy.
This week on The Frankly Daniel Show, I’ll highlight the increasing calls from Senators and House Members for Dr. Anthony Fauci to step down or be fired from his dual role as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) and as the spokesperson for the Biden Whitehouse on all things COVID-19. Dr. Fauci, increasingly referred to as duplicitous, is under siege for his possible role in removing the government’s moratorium on the ethically questionable research on pathogenic viruses using “gain-of-function” techniques.
One way or another, COVID-19, illegal immigration, climate change, and racism all act like pandemics on the American psyche and the nation’s well-being.
