'Coronavirus did NOT come from animals in Wuhan market': Landmark study suggests it was taken into the area by someone already infected - as Beijing thwarts efforts to establish source of Covid-19.’

And this is a link to an abstract of the scientific report, which is referred to in the article, which also has readers’ comments at the end:

SARS2 exploded out of the box relative to the food market story. In general, the food market story has been largely discredited. As have Pangolins, but than is another science story.

IIRC correctly, the youtube video of the Wuhanese nurse pleading for help and claiming it had mutated was on 15th January. That would mean a lesser strain was circulating from around November or earlier. Was CCP aware of this? I would find it strange if they weren't.

Here is a report by a young British teacher, who was in Wuhan last year. On 25th November 2019, he caught what he thought initiallyy was flu. Later he goes to local hospital, and much later he is advised by the hospital that he has coronavirus, not flu. Well written.

Considering all that is now known, I don't see how the omnipresent Orwellian CCP would no know almost from the beginning.

 

The 15th January video also agrees with an early Chinese paper discussing two subtypes L and S. A mild type S prevailed before Chinese New Year and escaped before the Wuhan shut down. Then a more aggressive type L swept Wuhan (70%). Only the S type spread throughout China.

 

Paper: https://academic.oup.com/nsr/advance-article/doi/10.1093/nsr/nwaa036/5775463

 

There are now several papers discussing multiple strains/subtypes that look from different angles.

Most detailed study yet puts the first human SARS2 infection in 6 October to 11 December. 

 

The largest study yet is based on 7666 genomes, which allows higher precision.  Early October is also the time of reported communications and possible operational disruptions at the Wuhan Virology lab.

 

Emergence of genomic diversity and recurrent mutations in SARS-CoV-2

 

"Phylogenetic estimates support that the COVID-2 pandemic started sometimes around 6 October 2019–11 December 2019, which corresponds to the time of the host-jump into humans."

18-26 October 2019 is also when the World Military Games were held in Wuhan. Several French athletes caught what they thought at the time was flu. 
 

“A lot of athletes at the World Military Games were very ill,’ said Elodie Clouvel, a world champion modern pentathlete.”

 

The month before, September, a drill had been carried out to test Chinese protocols should someone become ill at the Games in October. The illness in the drill was ..... Coronavirus.

 

In March 2019, Shi Zenghli, Bat Woman, had warned officials that a coronavirus epidemic was likely in China, because of the wet markets selling exotic animals for people to eat. But her advice to shut down these markets was not followed.

 

“Another report by other scientists entitled The Possible Origins Of 2019-nCoV Coronavirus – was published on a site used by scientists to share research. It called for tighter security in high-risk laboratories but was mysteriously withdrawn after two days ..... It said 605 bats were kept in the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control, which is about 500 yards from the market. It described how bats attacked, bled and urinated on one researcher, forcing him into quarantine on two occasions. ‘It is plausible that the virus leaked,’ it said.”

This I've been wondering about, could somebody point out the two in google maps? Thanks to CCP there's no streetview. Would seem utterly insane to have a BSL-4 lab within city limits. Should be somewhere in the middle of a desert.

Back in the Daily Mail I see.

 

Does it give the value of their houses? That's what it's trade mark is.

Wuhan Centre for Disease Control is BSL-2; Wuhan Institute of Virology where Bat Woman worked is BSL-4. 
 

Not google maps but these two pictures may help:


 

The CDC still had access to bats, and so could be the source of the virus:

 

“One of the researchers at the WHCDC described quarantining himself for two weeks after a bat's blood got on his skin, according to the report. That same man also quarantined himself after a bat urinated on him.”

This link shows, if you’re interested, the differences between BSL-1, -2, -3, and -4:

A just released Chinese paper confirms that a new batch of 227 infected bats was brought to Wuhan in October 2019 just before the outbreak.  Note. Since April, all related publications without CCP authorization are being blocked so consider that this one has been authorized.

 

In simple terms the paper reports the discovery of yet another bat CoV even closer to nCoV-SARS2 than Bat Woman's original 96% similar batCoV (named RaTG13).  The new virus (RmYN02) is 97.2% similar and also better resembles the critical human ACE2 receptor binding spike of nCoV-SARS2. Way cool.

 

The point made by the Chinese authors?  "See, they're natural", meaning not designed.

 

A possibly more important point in the paper? RmYN02 is one of many new viruses brought to Wuhan In October from the same Hunnan cave holding other CoVs able to infect humans.

 

"Here, we report a novel bat-derived coronavirus, denoted RmYN02, identified from a metagenomic analysis of samples from 227 bats collected from Yunnan Province in China between May and October 2019."

 

Next post, why they now suspect the Wuhan lab had problems in early October.

Yunnan is where the SARS cave is, hundreds of km from Wuhan. Yunnan is a very mountaneous area, hence the caves and bats. Hubei, not so much.

 

The idea that the bats would've flown hundreds of km to infect an intermediary animal near Wuhan, or somebody would've bothered to catch and sell bats from hundreds of km away at a market (where apparently bats were not sold) doesn't seem logical.

 

The virus being carried by the bats that were specifically collected for studying the virus and getting out of a lab does seem logical.

If you spent your time following and reading the links you would know the answer to your question; instead, as you admit yourself you know “nothing” about the origin of the virus.

 

I explained to you in post #78 on page 6 of this thread ^^ that links to Daily Mail and Daily Express are not protected by paywalls and so are easy for people to read for free.

 

 Here is another example. The Times has been showing the diary of a Wuhan resident called Fang Fang:

 

“.... it had been revealed that the novel coronavirus in Wuhan was being spread from human to human. Official media sources had consistently been telling us it was “not contagious between people; it’s controllable and preventable”.”

 

 

“By January 25, day one of the lunar new year, people had started to settle down a bit. The media reported that China’s top-level leaders were closely following the outbreak in Wuhan and that a team of medical experts from Shanghai had arrived.

 

But that was also when the period of true suffering arrived here in Wuhan — the number of people infected with the coronavirus exploded. The hospital system was brought to the brink of collapse. The infected ended up traipsing all over the city, in the wind and rain, searching in vain for treatment.We all felt completely helpless in the face of these patients crying out, desperate for help.”

 

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/wuhan-diary-an-exclusive-account-by-fang-fang-the-blogger-china-tried-to-censor-skhnfr96r
 

99.9% of readers of this thread will not be paying a subscription and so can’t enjoy the diary. 
 

An alternative is to read this article in the Mail, which talks about the Times article:

 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8327837/They-told-wasnt-contagious.html

 

On your logo, you want us to know that you are a “perennial outcast”, who is, like many 3 year olds I guess,  “always on the naughty step”.
 

I am not surprised as your name “Traubert” is an anagram of “True brat”. Psychologists will tell you that “true brats are not born; they are created.”
 

Never mind, just read the links and the interesting comments by rabas and Dr Tuner and you may change. Good luck.

The Aussies get support from 62 nations for an independent inquiry! Vote comes as China threatens to hit Australian barley exports with tariffs 

 

 

“China has been accused of covering up the severity of the pandemic after it emerged, costing the world vital weeks of preparation.

 

‘China's President Xi Jinping knew about the coronavirus on January 7, yet China only shut down the epicentre of the outbreak, Hubei province, on January 23, after five million people had left to travel through China and to the rest of the world.”

Let's see how CCP will squirm and block investigators from entering China. Full on, perpetual trade embargo until they open it all up.
