I am with @kprather88 here. Really vexed by what @CDCDirector and @CDCgov have done here. I mean, I get the general idea of trying to return to normal and encourage vaccination. But here are some thoughts for why I am still a bit vexed. https://t.co/tTzdFYoTqU— Jonathan Eisen (@phylogenomics) May 14, 2021

Relating to the lab vs natural origin theory of #SarsCOV2. I would like to call attention to the history of the anthrax attack investigation. Circumstantial evidence, that seemed so strong to so many people, was used to falsely accuse multiple people. https://t.co/olpDu8sKT9— Jonathan Eisen (@phylogenomics) March 27, 2021
This is a fascinating deep look into theories about the origins of #B117 #SARSCoV2 variant:— Jonathan Eisen (@phylogenomics) February 10, 2021
A lone infection may have changed the course of the pandemic https://t.co/jKNgWth63T

Yes, as I told @newsweek it is theoretically possible that a Chinese lab accidentally released #SARSCoV2 https://t.co/90qFnFcKJc but preponderance of evidence so far supports all natural events and the evidence actually supporting "lab release" is shown in this pic #Covid19 pic.twitter.com/TyqAiFnQuf— Jonathan Eisen (@phylogenomics) May 3, 2020
Reading: Scientists shouldn't rule out lab as source of coronavirus, new study says https://t.co/cZIyRXczrY - personally I do not find the analysis in this new paper remotely convincing 1/n— Jonathan Eisen (@phylogenomics) May 17, 2020
