When Experts Attack! #13 — Coronavirus was not engineered in a lab

When Experts Attack! #13 — Coronavirus was not engineered in a lab

We have another chat with Anthony Fehr, a molecular bioscientist who develops therapeutics to fight coronavirus. The last time we spoke with Fehr, it was before human-to-human transmission was confirmed, before the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic, before we all started living under stay at home orders. So much has changed in the interim — we wanted to talk again with the coronavirus researcher to find out what he’s thinking. We discuss why the SARS-coronavirus-2 wasn’t invented in a lab someplace, how viruses are like zombies and what it means that a tiger in New York City has contracted COVID-19.
