"Following this policy, the CDC has submitted a patent application on the SARS virus and its entire genetic content.''
Anyone arriving from China, except Australian citizens and permanent residents, will not be allowed to enter Australia, prime minister says
The invention provides, in part, the genomic sequence of a putative coronavirus, the SARS virus, and provides novel nucleic acid and amino acid sequences that may be used, for example, for the diagnosis, prophylaxis, or therapy of a variety of SARS virus related disorders.
Disclosed herein is a newly isolated human coronavirus (SARS-CoV), the causative agent of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). Also provided are the nucleic acid sequence of the SARS-CoV genome and the amino acid sequences of the SARS-CoV open reading frames, as well as methods of using these molecules to detect a SARS-CoV and detect infections therewith. Immune stimulatory compositions are also provided, along with methods of their use.

Just a thought...
What if those videos of bodies on the streets of Wuhan ARE real?
Maybe the 259 reported dead.. are only the 258 that have died in the hospital?
If they find bodies in the streets.. they arent likely to perform biopsies. Not in a city with 10 million plus in quarrantine. They probably just take em to the morgue and dispose of them without checking for a cause of death.
Think about how many may have died without them checking for the reason. Theres only so many coroners.
It’s not just a “curious interest” to figure out what sparked the current outbreak, Daszak says. “If we don't find the origin, it could still be a raging infection at a farm somewhere, and once this outbreak dies, there could be a continued spillover that’s really hard to stop. But the jury is still out on what the real origins of this are.”
