The White House asked scientists to rapidly assess the origins of the new coronavirus, which started in China in December 2019 and has since spread to over two dozen countries, including the United States.
Dr. Kelvin Droegemeier, director of The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, conveyed the request to Dr. Marcia McNutt, president of the National Academy of Sciences, in a letter this week.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine should rapidly examine information and identify data requirements that would help determine the origins of 2019-nCoV, Droegemeier wrote, using another name for the...

I’d better sell my Umbrella Corporation stock.
This week?? FR was trying to figure that out months ago!

Or (note to some demo candidates)... use them as gerbil-replacements.
I thought a Chinese couple stole it from a Canadian lab?
What about the claims that the bat coronavirus DNA has been modified to make it more pathogenic? Fake news?
Blame Canada!Bring Out Your Dead
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
If a quarantine saves just one child's life, it's worth it.
I trust President Trump to give us the truth about 2019-nCoV. No matter where it leads.
Yes, that is what FR came up with. I have a feeling the administration already knows everything and this is some sort of tactic. Maybe saving face for Xi or something.
I don’t know how this happens when China won’t grant access to our scientists.
Maybe a gentleman’s agreement that led to Xi allowing our scientists in. Trump talked to Xi about the virus this morning.
Funny thing is that one of the bio labs in Wuhan uses that symbol only in different colors.
Lets just say that it was MADE in China.
They have been. This was international diplomatic speech. It was a threat. The some in the Chinese communist party have been telling the people on their social media that this was and attack by America. Not a good thing to let get out of hand.
Communist party has a problem on their hand keeping the people in line during this virus and the easy thing was using America as the boogyman and pump up patriotism to push compliance with the quarantine rules. Trump was saying enough or get exposed because if out of hand China would have to respond with an attack.
