Covid-19: has a variant “deadly in 80% of cases” been created by researchers?

In summary, the study has nothing to do with work on gains of function – those experiments in which viruses are deliberately manipulated to be more infectious or deadly – as feared by Internet users. Moreover, the day after these pseudo-revelations, Boston University refuted the British article, calling it “false and inaccurate”. In a press release, the University affirms on the contrary that “this research has made the replication of the virus less dangerous”. For his part, NEIDL director Ronald Corley accuses those who spread the rumor of having given “a sensational character” to the message. “This statement misrepresents not only the results of the study, but also its objectives.”
