"Pandemic: Seasoned EPA Whistleblower Raises Alarms, Again

"One of EPA's most prominent whistleblowers has reemerged, challenging how federal agencies are responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

EPA scientist Cate Jenkins blasted out an email last week questioning whether the novel coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, can be transmitted orally through food and whether the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Food and Drug Administration have failed to convey the potential risk to the public.

'There is no reason to believe that food is safe and cannot transmit viruses, as the CDC and FDA are claiming,' Jenkins told E&E News.

'There is no way there can ever be proof except with animal studies, and they would be too late to help prevent exposures now,' she said."
