Boston University scientists have come under criticism for creating a deadly new strain of Covid in a lab. In the news reflected in the British press, US scientists developed an 80 percent deadly virus in a study on mice.
US scientists created a hybrid virus by combining the Wuhan strain of coronavirus and the Virgo protein of the Omicron variant. While the claims that the coronavirus pandemic has arisen due to a virus produced in the laboratory have not yet been clarified, the dangerous dilemma of US scientists has caused reactions.
In his statement on the subject, Israeli Professor Shmuel Shapira said that this is playing with fire and that it should be ‘totally banned’.
In the news in the newspaper, it was stated that this was done not only in the USA, but also in China, but it was restricted in the USA in 2017.
It was stated that the main reason for the production of more deadly variations of the virus is to prevent a new epidemic.
