Does anyone believe this COVID 19 virus hopped from bats and anteaters to humans and then from human to human this quickly? Folks in China have been eating these creatures for a long time. Here is another theory to consider. The Chinese government released a bioweapon upon the world. Not a human extinction level weapon, but a world economy killer. Why would they do something like that you ask? To show the world leaders how far they are willing to go for global dominance and conquest. They have been doing it buy grabbing all of the labor market and most global production for several years unchecked. Along comes a US President who is upsetting the plan. Without direct military action, they can release a military grade virus bioweapon and create a global pandemic that will kill the global economy and stop the President Trump in his tracks for a moment. A lot of people will die, mostly older and sicker folks, but it won’t wipe out humanity and it is difficult to prove, but they make their point very clearly by the implication that they are willing to go the distance to ensure their dominance. The public and the media are clueless, but world leaders get the message loud and clear. So, if this is the case, what is the appropriate response? You could surrender, especially if you are France. You could form a communist government and align with China like the democrats would do. You could send a message back to them by all our retaliation and make a coordinated attack against all Chinese submarines simultaneously. Or you could make an all out retaliatory attack against China, their top military and government officials and all of their know nuclear capabilities, and then deal with the ones you can’t get as they popup and acknowledge that there will be a lot of casualties on both sides. This is an exercise in possibilities and probabilities. It should and probably has been considered by military strategists. What are your thoughts and recommendations if it true?
Well they must be very intelligent because it’s THEIR economy that sufferers the most by FAR ! And THEIR death toll is far greater than reported , their is a reason 21,000,000 cell phone went dead , they are afraid of the news getting out on how BAD it is THERE ! How many Chinese goods are selling these days???
You mean like the bill Republicans and Democrats just passed and the “Drain the Swamp” President just signed into law?
One has to wonder…when in all of human history has there ever been a disease that could destroy civilization so rapidly. The planet’s strongest and largest manufacturing nation was taken down in less than 3 months. The rest of the world followed in mere weeks.
It is an interesting theory; and I certainly cannot disprove it.
But the burden of proof is not upon others, to disprove it.
So, that begs the question: Just how would you prove it?
If this is true then every country on the planet with nuclear weapons should be lobbing them at China without mercy and without fear of retaliation.
I was wondering about that.
It may not directly mean 21 million died, but certainly a point to consider.
Waves of pest did kill up to 1/3 or more Europeans, but the European civilization survived.
The rest of the world has been forewarned, although China hid the condition. If you overreact, like many European governments, you will certainly destroy the country, like the rampant immigration they have allowed.
Bottom line: the worst enemy of the Europeans is their governments.
The analysis of public genome sequence data from SARS-CoV-2 and related viruses found no evidence that the virus was made in a laboratory or otherwise engineered.
“By comparing the available genome sequence data for known coronavirus strains, we can firmly determine that SARS-CoV-2 originated through natural processes,” said Kristian Andersen, PhD, an associate professor of immunology and microbiology at Scripps Research and corresponding author on the paper.
In addition to Andersen, authors on the paper, “The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2,” include Robert F. Garry, of Tulane University; Edward Holmes, of the University of Sydney; Andrew Rambaut, of University of Edinburgh; W. Ian Lipkin, of Columbia University.
Based on their genomic sequencing analysis, Andersen and his collaborators concluded that the most likely origins for SARS-CoV-2 followed one of two possible scenarios.
In one scenario, the virus evolved to its current pathogenic state through natural selection in a non-human host and then jumped to humans. This is how previous coronavirus outbreaks have emerged, with humans contracting the virus after direct exposure to civets (SARS) and camels (MERS). The researchers proposed bats as the most likely reservoir for SARS-CoV-2 as it is very similar to a bat coronavirus. There are no documented cases of direct bat-human transmission, however, suggesting that an intermediate host was likely involved between bats and humans.
In this scenario, both of the distinctive features of SARS-CoV-2’s spike protein – the RBD portion that binds to cells and the cleavage site that opens the virus up – would have evolved to their current state prior to entering humans. In this case, the current epidemic would probably have emerged rapidly as soon as humans were infected, as the virus would have already evolved the features that make it pathogenic and able to spread between people.
In the other proposed scenario, a non-pathogenic version of the virus jumped from an animal host into humans and then evolved to its current pathogenic state within the human population. For instance, some coronaviruses from pangolins, armadillo-like mammals found in Asia and Africa, have an RBD structure very similar to that of SARS-CoV-2. A coronavirus from a pangolin could possibly have been transmitted to a human, either directly or through an intermediary host such as civets or ferrets.
Governments have been developing biological weapons, notably, the US, China, Russia, UK, and Israel.
They have been doing that from the time of Genghis Khan and earlier. Even the Brits used bioweapon on Boston. No surprise there.
Having said that, it makes no sense to assume all these recent viral outbreaks are natural occurrences. Yes, viruses can skip to other animal hosts. It’s been known.
But the big question is why now?
Why not now???
Virus’s mutate on their own schedule.
No. The timing is almost perfect.
The virus was intended to “embarrass” and take down Trump.
I say almost, because if it had happened in September or October this year, people wouldn’t be voting for Trump.
Sorry to break it to you like this but you’re way, way off track. So I reckon it’s back to the conspiracy er, I mean back to the drawing board for you? Stay in touch.
Wakey-wakey Didge, you’re smarter than that. It’s true that viruses mutate - they do it all the time - it’s the rest of what you said that you got wrong.
Yes, but allegedly this mutation is more fatal than all the others. The worrying thing is that recent headlines reveal that Johnson, Prince Charles, the Health Secretary, one of the scientific advisers, to name but a few have become infected, and will be extremely lucky to survive it - as will everyone they’ve been in contact with since becoming infected, don’t you agree? Indeed, giving it further thought I’ll opine that it could even threaten all Westminster politicians and the entire Royal family, then what would we do??
Does Event 201 ring a bell?
If not, what about Johns Hopkins, or Bill and Melinda Gates?
Is that question for me?
