Chinese scientists believe the deadly coronavirus may have started life in a research facility just 300 yards from the Wuhan fish market.
A new bombshell paper from the Beijing-sponsored South China University of Technology says that the Wuhan Center for Disease Control (WHCDC) could have spawned the contagion in Hubei province.
'The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus,' penned by scholars Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao claims the WHCDC kept disease-ridden animals in laboratories, including 605 bats.
It also mentions that bats - which are linked to coronavirus - once attacked a researcher and 'blood of bat was on his skin.'
unless our collective Minitruths can compile a story that it wasn't actually the Chinese.....don't rule that one out.
A questionable source exhibits one or more of the following: extreme bias, consistent promotion of propaganda/conspiracies, poor or no sourcing to credible information, a complete lack of transparency and/or is fake news. Fake News is the deliberate attempt to publish hoaxes and/or disinformation for the purpose of profit or influence (Learn More). Sources listed in the Questionable Category may be very untrustworthy and should be fact checked on a per article basis. Please note sources on this list are not considered fake news unless specifically written in the reasoning section for that source. See all Questionable sources. Overall, we rate Daily Mail Questionable due to numerous failed fact checks and poor sourcing of information.
This virus has an almost perfect tool-set in terms of debilitating and eliminating humans who are weak, ill and old. Not all of which is yet fully understood. Its almost perfect as a depop BW which smacks of intelligent design rather than natural coincidence! The question is, was it an accident or deliberate by the Chinese? do they already have a vaccine? Or was it done deliberately by another and do they already have a vaccine.

The same month as the out break Wuhan Biosafety Lab was granted level 4 status meaning it had approval for the highest most deadly of virus's including Ebola and bioweapons. Make of that what you will but to me this was either an accident or perhaps a test. So far the Chinese have blamed bats, pangolins and dogs and as we all know, the information released from Chinese Government sources are far from reliable.
Let's also not forget that the SARS virus escaped multiple times from Bejing Laboratories so their track record isn't great!
So there’s original SARS, which is a type of coronavirus. SARS infects cells through the ACE2 receptor in hosts.
The S spike protein plays a key role in how the virus infects cells. Each of the little spikes that surround the coronavirus is a spike protein (or S protein). That’s what gives the coronavirus it’s name - it’s “crown” of these spikes.
After the first SARS outbreak, there was a “land rush” to find other coronaviruses. A collection of SARS-*like* coronaviruses was isolated in several horseshoe bat species over 10 years ago, called SARS-like CoVs, or SL-CoVs. Not SARS exactly, but coronaviruses similar to SARS.
In 2007, a team of researchers based in Wuhan, in conjunction with an Australian laboratory, conducted a study with SARS, a SARS-like coronavirus, and HIV-1.
They also predicted based on the S-ACE2 binding structure, that SARS-like CoVs were not able to use this same attack method (ACE2 mediation).
They decided to create a pseudovirus where they essentially put a SARS-like CoV in a HIV envelope.
Using an HIV envelope, they replaced the RBD (receptor binding domain) of SL-CoV with that of SARS-CoV, and used it to successfully infect bats through ACE2 mediation.

The 2019-nCoV has caused an epidemic of 28,060 laboratory-confirmed infections in human including 564 deaths in China by February 6, 2020. Two descriptions of the virus published on Nature this week indicated that the genome sequences from patients were almost identical to the Bat CoV ZC45 coronavirus. It was critical to study where the pathogen came from and how it passed onto human. An article published on The Lancet reported that 27 of 41 infected patients were found to have contact with the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan. We noted two laboratories conducting research on bat coronavirus in Wuhan, one of which was only 280 meters from the seafood market. We briefly examined the histories of the laboratories and proposed that the coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory. Our proposal provided an alternative origin of the coronavirus in addition to natural recombination and intermediate host.

Of course it did. It started near a bioweapon facility and several bioresearch facilities. Too much a coincidence to dismiss. Especially since the virus is truly beneficial to Chinese society as a whole.
China is a communist country, individuals mean nothing. Everything is done for the good of the whole, society as a whole.
They have a enormous problem with too many elderly. This is due their one child policy. Right now on average a couple is supporting themselves, their child/ren, and FOUR other adults, this is their culture- no to few facilities for the elderly.
This virus is specifically designed to kill the elderly and not harm young people. An excellent way to genocide the elderly without looking like they did.
There are always outliers who die from any virus, like health workers forced by the government to work 24/7 without rest or minimal rest for weeks on end.
In a socialist/communist country the resource drain from the elderly is reaching crises levels. Aside from China, China may see itself as doing good for the entire world. There are an excess of elderly in every developed country in the world.
To deny or dismiss it being a designer virus to kill the excess elderly population is like sticking your head in the sand.
I have seen several people doing that and wonder if they are Chinese paid operatives who are doing their best to make this highly logical conclusion sound like a weird conspiracy theory.
Someone with 2 masters degrees, and a very steady person asked me the other day if I thought the Chinese designed this and it got loose from their facility. I said a cautious yes, and the person said, I do too. This shows that even people who aren't into "the new" the way ATS people are have seen the obvious truth.
While the two authors do not provide any evidence that the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was created in the lab, they build their case based on assumptions. They begin by saying that bats carrying the novel coronavirus are originally found in Yunnan or Zhejiang province, which is more than 900 km from the seafood market at the centre of the investigation on the source. Hence, the chances of bats “flying to the market” are slim.

These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources. Factual Reporting: HIGH Notes: The Hindu is an English-language Indian daily newspaper. The Hindu has been accused of left-wing bias with its articles and editorials, but covers the USA with a more centrist approach. (D. Van Zandt 10/27/2016)
