Letters to editor

Kudos to Congressman Kurt Schrader for leading critical efforts to determine the origin of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Experts in the scientific and U.S. intelligence communities, and a majority of Americans, believe that the pandemic likely resulted from an accident at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which was manipulating coronaviruses in U.S. taxpayer-funded animal experiments. Former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb has explained that, “by assembling a large repository of dangerous coronaviruses into a single lab in a densely populated city, and experimenting on animals, Chinese researchers greatly increased the risk of a lab leak.“

To date, China has stonewalled efforts to investigate the lab. But Rep. Schrader is leading the call for a bipartisan, independent 9/11-style commission to get to the bottom of this.

Our 3 million members in OR and beyond are grateful to Rep. Schrader for his outstanding leadership to uncover how this devastating pandemic started so we can prevent another one.
