It is not possible to know when a third baby with a modified gene will be born

In November 2018, He Jiankui, a Chinese scientist, announced that he had genetically modified human beings, shocking the entire scientific and health community around the world.

By producing the CCR5 gene, which is used by HIV to infect human cells, the twins could never be infected with HIV.

He said that by producing the CCR5 gene, which is used by HIV to infect human cells, the twins could never be infected with HIV. The Chinese government has since remained silent on the matter, with the third child to be born soon, according to the MIT Technology Review.

William Hurlbut, a Stanford bioethicist, said in January that the third baby he had been genetically engineered to be born in late June or early July, according to available data. It is now the end of June and the beginning of July. However, no word has been heard on the matter, and the Chinese government appears to be working on the issue. There seems to be a huge controversy in medical science.
