A special case of COVID-19 with long duration of viral shedding for 49 days
Ralph Baric, an infectious-disease researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, last week (November 9) published a study on his team’s efforts to engineer a virus with the surface protein of the SHC014 coronavirus, found in horseshoe bats in China, and the backbone of one that causes human-like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in mice. The hybrid virus could infect human airway cells and caused disease in mice, according to the team’s results, which were published in Nature Medicine.

It seems the bats get infected with.the virus but don't get sick from it which makes them great at spreading it....so the researchers in Wuhan were working on creating a version of the virus that would turn off the bats immune system resulting in the virus making them sick and die.

ok well that's a little erm coincidental.....but I don't see the connection why a pandemic would be needed? They just bung up the masts regardless of any public outcry....as is clear from the previous 2 pandemics!
