China Just Created Something Way Scarier Than Covid-19

This sounds like something out of a science fiction book.

Scientists in China have created the first ever human-monkey chimera.

A chimera is an organism that has 2 sets of DNA rather than 1. Put more simply, it’s cross-species breeding.

Chimeras are sometimes found in people — if a twin absorbs the other twin in utero.

But China has taken it down an ethically controversial road.

So what should we expect with these human-monkeys? A near human intelligent new species?

Are they going to breed more of them and then release them into the world like they did with Covid-19?

China claims to have “disposed of” the embryo after 20 days. But we all know China doesn’t tell the truth.
