Our Testimony for the Science and Technology Committee of the House of Commons,

This morning, Viral co-author Alina Chan and I testified before Parliament—specifically, the Science and Technology Committee of the House of Commons—on the search for the origin of COVID-19.

It’s available to watch (and share) on YouTube, and we have shared clips on Facebook and Twitter.

We have included the full panel, but Alina and I first speak 18-19 minutes in if you wish to skip ahead.

It has had a significant impact in both traditional media and social media. Thank you for your wonderful help and support!
