Deleted data

Why the EFF is the NIH deleting data?
Holy Crap this just keeps getting worser and worser.

And they did it at the request of the Chinese.
You can’t make this shit up.

I accessed it through twitter.
Here is the meat of the article.

“Records of early Covid-19 cases in Wuhan were deleted from a US database at the request of Chinese scientists, American officials have confirmed. A team of academics from Wuhan, where the first documented cases of Covid-19 appeared, submitted sequences of the virus that causes the disease to a US-based archive in March 2020. Three months later, however, they asked for those sequences to be removed and the data were deleted, the US National Institutes of Health said on Wednesday, confirming the results of an investigation by biologist Jesse Bloom.”

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Same reason NASA lost the moon landing mission telemetry data.

No government organization can do anything right.

Slash it is a conspiracy.
