An article full of mistakes.
1. A commercial NGS company, Visionmedical, first sequenced and assembled full genome of this bat-like beta coronavirus from sample of a unknown pneumonia patient in Wuhan, before 2020. 2. The 'rectification' was a result of a normal and yearly CNAS biosaftey inspection, btn 3rd-5th Jan 2020, an expert team of 5 did a full inspection, evaluated the emergency response of SHPHCC BSL-3 lab. After inspection, expert team listed 8 issues, suggested rectifications

The snapshots contain rich information.
1. 'it is a novel coronavirus' = distinctive from SARS1, must have been successfully isolated from patient samples, must have been verified (revisit the *chlamydia* in SARS1) @martinenserink 2. W/o knowing the exact contents, based on the low resolution image and file name of the pptx, predated Virological. That alone, already can be treated as a high confidence evidence that China, through GISAID, was providing a unique additional info regarding the novel cov to WHO

Would love to have a comparison of June 2022 revision and today's new release on ChinaXiv. If available. So, pls, that 'reviewer who claims to have reviewed the manuscript for Nature'.
I am not caring too much for the conclusion part, as this new version seems targeting for expedited peer-review process. We all see 'toned down' with previous preprints vs publications.

Is it an established fact that no one on twitter or press seem bother emphasising? that:
1. In SAGO meeting, the original data generators said they already *KNEW* the raccoon dogs etc al sequence in the data they produced (before lifted embargo) , and was in the middle of submitting a revision.
2. The coauthor(obviously not the communication authors with email listed and mobile number too well known to *everyone*) of both preprint and initial illumina data& BGI data, expressed during the initial contact, that(pls pay attention)

A brief 'announcement'.😹 Busy with something more important, just break in briefly.
1. Pls, don't want to reply to the DMs flooded in, until we see the origonal data generators' own publication. 2. Accuracy...... If we want to avoid accusations of *power of media*, perhaps anyone point to me the reference of this specific usage implied transferring live animals, 'In one sample from a cart used to move cages', as if the reporter was there......…

*Working diagnostics* for Covid-19 were *only available* *after* *mid-Jan*. But the *Chinese gov* had issued order*s* to *destroy* *all patient* samples *on Jan 3, 2020*.

I will do a mini thread to pointed out how factually wrong and misleading the layman readers, regarding ☝️ When I have time this weekend, I will present the original materials, references, word by word.
Btw, can anyone reply with ur copy of that 2020-03 'gag order' full document, just as reference to present as comparison, thank you.

A mini thread about this breaking news, in short, it's not a breaking news...... I remembered EISS was conducting some epidemiological intelligence workshops, correct me if I am wrong, so, source finding->

A bit late to the game I guess.

So, let me guess, the new 'intelligence' on CCDC research on coronavirus *might have* have something to do with this😜

The following 🧵is going to be fun to read. (Though, for me, an insignificant anonymous account, I think the @propublica @VanityFair piece & their *editorial notes/update* were pure garbage, pure garbage, pure garbage. Which I don't want to spend any second on, but upon request from a scientist, I spent 2hrs in Google)

Well, don't want to spend any second on this, but hey, didn't expect a *defence* to shoot from this angle, so let's roll.
Regarding the 'additional language after the sentence', did your *experts* notice the punctuation marks??? Here, the ministry of Education of China had a national reference for punctuation marks here, if your *experts* never had the chance to 'came across' the applications of “ ”,‘ ’, “ ”—…

What does this change of usage mean?

I think, for those went through @VanityFair/@propublica last week's story, it's clear as daylight how they lied, & more stunning if you ever hold a thread of remaining good faith to them,
they knew we knew they were lying and they don't mind!
Now you understand why they lied! In future classes in journalism school, a timeline incl timestamps of *prepublication*, *publication*, *within 24hrs after publication*, *midterm election* should be added to the same page whenever @KatherineEban/@jeffykao's work were referenced.
A 'response' not available in it.

About @VanityFair/@propublica last week piece of lab leak. In short version.
1. Translation from original doc were a train wreck, to say the least.
2. The key 2019-11-12 newsletter, was a reprint from August, completely disrupt the timeline and reasoning in the whole report 3. The term 'opened a Pandora's box', was absolutely not a hint of accident in WIV but an expression of plague, and a repeatedly appeared expression by WIV when described its P4. As WIV P4 was cubic shaped, and its interior design was to BOX in any potential dangerous pathogens.

I have no idea why ppl still haunting on the term of open the Pandora box?
1. Wildly used years before in AI, environment etc.

2. Specifically used by WIV to describe the importance of P4 research in, *2018*!… 3. A must watch by Will Smith, I am legend!…

4. World War Z by Brad Pitt. Image

🧵A summary of a unique characteristic on the 12th Nov party branch dispatch that 'helped shape the conclusion of the interim report'.
Methodology: No need for a VPN, nor RAND expertise, nor linguistic skill, nor senate budget, nor months/yrs.
Copy-past-Google+ 3mins focus
Tl,;dr: There were not 1, but 3 ver. of the dispatch.
All three slightly different in either time of publication, paragraph formatting, or absent of party tone language.
But the major biosafety parts facing current (almost one-side) 'mistranslation' critics are identical.

Close for 'rectification' @SCMPNews Feb 2020.

So, why was the wrong, how and who made it right?
As for the when, the particular phase from the widely cited report was: a day after...... Gonna break down the details of two consecutive orders (serial number 2020-03 & 2020-04) from NHC on Jan 3rd 2020.
