Interesting twitter thread on the virus. Wild conspiracy theory or plausible scenario?
I think he's talking out of his ass, but he does bring up an interesting question as to whether the US is researching bio weapons. We'd almost have to, because you have to assume the bad actors are doing it, also.
Also, if your bio weapon only kills elderly people in China, then you're a pretty mediocre evil genius. Or maybe the goal of such things isn't actually to kill a bunch of people. The fact it turned that China city into a ghost town for weeks is probably sufficiently effective from a tactical perspective.
