A scientist who took an opposing position in an email to Dr. Fauci is gone from Twitter.
“Kristian Andersen, a virologist at California’s Scripps Research Institute who emailed Dr. Anthony Fauci in January 2020 to raise the possibility that the coronavirus may have been engineered, has deactivated his Twitter account,” reports Fox News.
Per the report:
Andersen’s email to Fauci appeared in a trove of documents obtained last week following a Freedom of Information Act request. The email in question, sent on Jan. 31, 2020, pointed to a report in Science magazine about the global race to share “full sequences of the virus from patients” in order to understand the origins of the virus and learn how it “fits on the family tree of related viruses found in bats and other species.”
Although Fauci was claiming the virus could not be manmade, Anderson was arguing otherwise directly to Fauci. “The unusual features of the virus make up a really small part of the genome (<0.1%) so one has to look really closely at all the sequences to see that some of the features (potentially) look engineered," said Andersen's email to Fauci.
