Is “Gain Of Function” Research Forbidden By Biowarfare Convention?

Question: Should Dr Fauci be charged with perjury for telling Congress he did not fund “gain of function” research at Wuhan lab with US taxpayers’ money?

Better question: Should Dr Fauci, his assistants, and the Wuhan lab be charged with war crimes for violating the 1972 Convention Against Biological Warfare Research?

“Gain of function” means engineering a virus to be more transmissible, or more lethal, or – in the case of Covid-19 – both. If this is not an example of the outlawed biological warfare research, what is it? Line dancing? Australian rules football?

Stop arguing about the technicalities that interest lawyers, and start thinking about life-and-death issues that we have barely touched upon. If gain-of-function research violates the biological warfare convention, don’t do it. Or, if there is a very good reason to do it, do it in the US, not in a lab located in a potential enemy nation. There, is that clear enough for you?
