Fauci is Now Performing Gain-of-Function on the Spanish Flu

Fauci is Now Performing Gain-of-Function on the Spanish Flu By Tom Renz | 19 Aug 2022 | ...Fauci and crew are now actively performing gain-of-function (GoF) work and infecting primates with the Spanish Flu. For those of you that are unaware, GoF does not have a single agreed upon definition but, as it relates here, is essentially the modification of the Spanish Flu virus to make "more functional." In this case, as with COVID, I have little doubt the GoF supporters will argue that this is not GoF but the article actually notes that this disease was created in canine kidneys with supplemental bovine serum... I frankly do not care to debate the nuance of whether the recreation of generally extinct virus "generated by reverse genetics" using pieces and parts of other animals qualifies as GoF; what I care about is that we have recreated the Spanish Flu and are experimenting with it on other animals. I also care that one focus of this article is the fact that scientists are frustrated that the recreated Spanish Flu is not dangerous enough.
