Nicholas Wade
 Maria Gilardin  Contact Contributor
Nicholas Wade is a science writer, editor, and author who has worked on the staff of Nature, Science, and, for many years, the New York Times. His May 5, 2021 article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, asking whether people or nature opened Pandora’s box at Wuhan, generated huge interest and follow-on interviews.

In this interview Nicholas Wade covers intriguing questions regarding the remaining mystery of who the original host animal was - and what intermediate animal introduced it to humans. Also - how Donald Trump naming it, without evidence, the China Virus made scientists and media want to support the theory of a natural origin in order to stem the tide of racism. And - to make it even more complex, the thorny issue that the Wuhan Lab, at the time in question, received funding for corona virus research from US taxpayers via a grant from the National Institutes of Health administered by the EcoHealth Alliance.

This interview by the British science author and journalist Aditi Prasad was streamed Live on May 31, 2021 on the video channel of the Hindustan Times, an Indian English-language daily newspaper.
