That link only displays in Chinese for me. Looked around for a language switch, and didn't find how to view that site in English.
Here is the question was looking for an answer for :
did they test the genome of the samples, to confirm that it is Sars-COV-2™ ?
Went to get an anal swab the other day : the attendant was brought to tears by the magnificence of my arse, and begged me to let her take a selfie with it.

"could" is only used here because "can't" would be factually incorrect.
Im sorry....but the risk of fecal to airborn contamination would have to be so small as to be irrelevant.
But it does remind me of my initial argument against masks: how come a mask works, but my jeans and drawers can't keep the fart smell in?

How People Become Infected with Hantaviruses
In the United States, deer mice (along with cotton rats and rice rats in the southeastern states and the white-footed mouse in the Northeast) are reservoirs of the hantaviruses. The rodents shed the virus in their urine, droppings, and saliva. The virus is mainly transmitted to people when they breathe in air contaminated with the virus.
When fresh rodent urine, droppings, or nesting materials are stirred up, tiny droplets containing the virus get into the air. This process is known as “airborne transmission“.
There are several other ways rodents may spread hantavirus to people:
If a rodent with the virus bites someone, the virus may be spread to that person, but this type of transmission is rare.Scientists believe that people may be able to get the virus if they touch something that has been contaminated with rodent urine, droppings, or saliva, and then touch their nose or mouth.Scientists also suspect people can become sick if they eat food contaminated by urine, droppings, or saliva from an infected rodent.
The hantaviruses that cause human illness in the United States cannot be transmitted from one person to another. For example, you cannot get these viruses from touching or kissing a person who has HPS or from a health care worker who has treated someone with the disease.
In Chile and Argentina, rare cases of person-to-person transmission have occurred among close contacts of a person who was ill with a type of hantavirus called Andes virus.
