#Information cascade alert!

The US #intelligence agencies are supposed to reveal all information they have with respect to the #OriginOfCovid

I wanted to use the opportunity to explain exactly what you will see happening in the media, no matter the content of those reports

First, let's talk about expectations.

From the get-go, it is absolutely clear that there is no #smoking gun or similar to be expected.

The intelligence services all had access to the same information and most assessments are low confidence, with 4 agencies favoring #zoonosis. Image
Within the 'manmade' mythology, too many unverified stories are taken as gospel truth.

Overall, the best LLs can hope for is that the IC can verify some #circumstantial evidence that they have spun into their #mythology; but honestly, I highly doubt that.

While the #lableak theory is scientifically dead, the lableak conspiracy myth will never die out.

This has everything to do with #asymmetric forces on social media, and the self-serving influencers and information combatants abusing them.

A thread:

How does one go about when trying to find out what is true in a world segmented by echo chambers and fragmented reality perceptions?

I cannot say that there is a formula, but I can share what steps I took.

When I started, I believed lableak likely..

Science is constantly evolving and the scientific literature gets updated when new evidence comes in.

So if you do not want to start out with your intuition, maybe check the status of current scientific literature…

Four new preprints were posted in the last few days about the #Huanan #market and #COVID19 #Origin
Some scientists tend to think that an initial animal-to-human transmission occured at this market (2 new preprints going in that direction)
whereas others believe that the market was simply the location of an early ‘superspreading’ event (the new CCDC preprint).
The four new preprints do not bring definitive, conclusive evidence on this issue. It remains unclear how patient zero at the Huanan market was contaminated and whether the market was a site of animal-to-human contamination.

Ahora que estoy ordenando información sobre la pandemia del coronavirus de los últimos meses, vamos a hacer un hilo con algunos de los momentos que han quedado (o deberían) quedar en la memoria colectiva. Así que, toca HILO ... y bien largo. 👇👇👇
1. En diciembre, Li #Wenliang, oftalmólogo chino que trabajaba en el Hospital Central de #Wuhan, detectó siete casos de un virus que se asemejaba al #SARS, el que provocó una epidemia global en 2003. Se sospechaba que los casos provenían del mercado de pescados y mariscos Huanan.
2. El 30 diciembre, Li le envió un mensaje a sus colegas en Wechat, advirtió del brote y recomendó usar ropa protectora. Las capturas de pantalla con sus mensajes llegaron a los supervisores médicos y la policía, que lo acusó de difundir rumores falsos en internet (documento👇).
