In 2012 the World Health Organization (WHO) met to consider whether and how to restrict avian influenza research in the midst of a controversy about publishing details on the creation in a laboratory of a strain of influenza that can be transmitted between mammals.1 Authorities in the United States issued a new policy to mitigate biorisks in life sciences research that attempts to further institutionalize oversight and evaluation procedures in the area of dual-use research of concern in the life sciences. The WHO also confirmed the existence of a novel coronavirus and alerted its members in accordance with the International Health Regulations (IHR).
