The Origin of Sars-CoV-2: Why It Matters
Commentary: Lethal Pneumonia Cases in Mojiang Miners (2012) and the Mineshaft Could Provide Important Clues to the Origin of SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
Insight is given into obligatory, ethical steps that are to be considered for discovering the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic, and for preventing future pandemics.
Rank Has Its Privileges: Explaining Why Laboratory Safety Is a Persistent Challenge
Environmental, health, and safety management systems have become common in research settings to improve laboratory safety through systematic observation and self-regulation. However, there is scant
Coronaviruses in wild animals sampled in and around Wuhan at the beginning of COVID-19 emergence
TLDR
More scientific efforts are warranted to better understand the high circulation of CCoVs in raccoon dogs in China and the possibility of a potential human agent.
Genomic determinants of Furin cleavage in diverse European SARS-related bat coronaviruses
TLDR
It is suggested that furin cleavage sites can be acquired in SrC via conserved molecular mechanisms known in other reservoir-bound RNA viruses and thus support a natural origin of SARS-CoV-2.

The Covid-19 catastrophe: A science communication mess?
TLDR
The possible causes and characteristics of the spread of disinformation on the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to confront this health crisis has led society to demand accurate information from science, despite the fact that in many cases there is only uncertainty.
Recherche à usage dual sur les pathogènes modifiés en laboratoire
Les avancées techniques en biologie de synthèse rendent de plus en plus accessibles la modification ou même la fabrication de virus en laboratoire. Plusieurs travaux de recherche fondés sur la
Ridge count thresholding to uncover coordinated networks during onset of the Covid-19 pandemic
TLDR
This work presents a new process for extracting tweet storms and uncovering networks of accounts that are working in a coordinated fashion using ridge count thresholding (RCT) to isolate those communities most responsible for driving narratives and pushing stories through social media.
