Just days after the Boston University gain-of-function experiment scandal, a Daily Mail report today claims that scientists at Imperial College in London are engaged in similar research.
- Hamsters were infected with mutant viruses, blends of original Wuhan strain and parts of Omicron or Delta
- Critics of the lab experiments, carried out by Imperial College London earlier this year, called it ‘insanity’
- Twenty scientists were involved in the project, including one who sits on Government advisory panel SAGE
- The university insists the study, part-funded by the taxpayer, followed UK regulations and was entirely safe
