Sorting out who did what in the Covid-19 misinformation effort, particularly it origins and effective treatments for it. From Meryl Nass, MD at theburningplatform.com:
Could four key public health officials have been intimately involved in the creation of the pandemic, as well as the prolongation and improper treatments used during the pandemic?
In early 2020, there was a lot of chatter about where the virus, later named SARS-CoV-2, actually came from.
In an excellent, detailed article written earlier this month for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, former New York Times science writer Nicholas Wade described how two short pieces published in March 2020 — one in The Lancet and one in Nature Medicine — determined how this chatter would be channeled to the public.
These two extraordinarily influential pieces, each published under the heading “correspondence,” were parroted by mainstream media for a year. Both were plainly intended to shut down any discussion of the possibility that the virus originated in a lab.
