Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States stepped in at the time and filed their own patent on the isolated SARS virus, its genes, its proteins, and the methods to detect it and the infection it was causing (US7220852B1 and US7776521B1). The reason? They wanted to prevent others from "monopolizing the field" and to allow researchers to develop diagnostics and therapeutics to help deal with the SARS outbreak.

Your remember how "social media" tracked down USAMRIID patent for antviral remdesivir in 2014 dontcha?
