BizBeat Ep. 200: Gain of function research? The U.S. is the leader

It claims that researchers at the WIV together with U.S. scientists were conducting gain-of-function research on the coronavirus. But both Chinese and American scientists have refuted the claim.
The scientist best known for gain-of-function research is an American scientist Ralph Baric. If Republicans are so keen to push this theory, why not investigate American scientists first?
