Dr. Anthony Fauci, in March 2020, received an email from Erik Nilsen, the Co-Founder & Interim CEO at Bio-Signal Technologies, regarding likely information about the coronavirus, to which Fauci responded, saying the email was “too long for me to read.”
Bio-Signal Technologies, which Nilsen works for, is a Texas-based startup that develops sophisticated tools for neuroscience research and applications of neuroprosthetics and brain-machine interfaces (BMIs). The email contained valuable information that Fauci seemed to discount due to his lack of patience reading a long email.
Nilsen said in the email, he was a physicist and had been modeling the outbreak since January. He continued to add that he has “been communicating with quite a few people around the world including an NYU epidemiologist.” The physicist mentioned that he has “lots of information about China” because of his “business, scientific, friendship, and other ties with many there, including immunologists & virologists at top-tier institutions and laboratories.”
