Following reports that researchers with Boston University have created a new, deadly hybrid strain of Covid-19 with an 80 percent kill rate in lab mice, researchers are refuting this, calling it “false and inaccurate.”

Researchers at the University’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) refuted claims that the research was “gain-of-function,” and that it was a more dangerous strain, saying that they in fact created a less dangerous strain.
