U.S. Right to Know is investigating the origins of Covid-19, the risks of gain-of-function research and mishaps at biolabs where pathogens of pandemic potentials are stored and manipulated. We have unearthed and reported on many newsworthy documents. USRTK was the first research group to bring to light important internal academic communications regarding the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our work on these issues has been featured in news outlets around the world, including the Wall Street Journal, Science, BMJ, USA Today, New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Fox News, The Intercept, Sky News Australia, Daily Mail, The Australian, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, RAI 3’s Presadiretta, Le Parisien, Le Point, CNET, Taiwan News, La Jornada, The Sun, Daily Caller, New York Post and many others.
Background on our investigation: In July 2020, U.S. Right to Know began submitting public records requests in pursuit of data from public institutions in an effort to discover what is known about the origins of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes the disease Covid-19. We are also researching accidents, leaks and other mishaps at laboratories where pathogens of pandemic potential are stored and modified, and the risks of gain-of-function research, which involve experiments on such pathogens to increase their host range, infectivity, transmissibility or pathogenicity.
