Here is the study report Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding from twitter was referring to, it has not been peer reviewed at this time.
The report looks at the possibility of two different viruses mixing genetic material to form a mutation ( recombination event)
It concludes that nearly half of 2019-ncov genome is a new linage, with no close relationships to other viruses within the subgenus of sarbecovirus that coronavirus belongs too. Interesting, will have see if it holds up though.
Full-genome sequence analysis of 2019-nCoV revealed that belongs to betacoronavirus, but it is divergent from SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV that caused epidemics in the past. The 2019-nCoV together with the Bat_SARS-like coronavirus forms a distinct lineage within the subgenus of the sarbecovirus.
A BLAST search of 2019-nCoV middle fragment revealed no considerable similarity with any of
the previously characterized corona viruses.
The levels of genetic similarity between the 2019-nCoV and RaTG13 suggest that the latter does not provide the exact variant that caused the outbreak in humans, but the hypothesis that 2019-nCoV has originated from bats is very likely.
. Our study rejects the hypothesis of emergence as a result of a recent recombination event. Notably, the new coronavirus provides a new lineage for almost half of its genome, with no close genetic relationships to other viruses
within the subgenus of sarbecovirus.

This thread is exploding...information overload...
How can one keep track of the major highlights of this developing story....
I can't believe China accidentally deployed a Bio-Weapon.... this narrative is gaining ground and no longer a conspiracy!!!
Wireless technology/ cell towers and specially 5G IS WEAPON TECHNOLOGY.
Are Chinese killing their citizens with 5G , maybe the corona virus there is sensitive to EMF also
Look where the deaths are, all in communist China....
If no deaths outside China, there has to be major factor that is directly effecting.....Huawei 5G ?
5G is weapon, and combined ith new bug it may kill a lot in short time

While the human cost of a pandemic (if this is what is developing) is foremost in minds at the moment, its interesting to consider the associated impact.
The world today is built on integrated supply chains, and importantly they are centred in Asia (manufacturing particularly). The impact on society could be significantly bigger than the actual illness as our integrated and consumer led economies feel the impact!
I know we are no where near that yet, but this piece was interesting.

YOLO a straddle. Profit. If it's over we're headed back to all time highs, if it starts spreading outside china, we're headed much lower.

The small number of international cases reported outside of China seem to be recovering well some seem to have mild and moderate symptoms from what I have read but some sources are a little bit sketchy.
Some sources state the person is cured but "cured" is not the word I'd use. But those who have been infected by the current strain and recovered are now probably immune to catching the same strain. There is however a chance the strain could mutate into a new strain.

IDK, but the one flying now is not cancelled. Not sure WTF they're thinking flying people into an airport from wuhan. Madness.

Just waking up to get the latest updates. Does anyone know if they are stopping outgoing shipments of goods from Shenzen? This affects my business. I would rather see it halted though instead of risking it.
Any other updates from overnight?
