I clicked the first link, and it was cell phone screenshots that are too small for my old ass to read. I assume it's patents concerning a coronavirus? It's not this coronavirus though. There are 7 of them contagious to us now. Covid ranks at a weak #2 compared to MERS.
Companies patent virus sequences to work on vaccines for them. The vaccines we're using for covid started with SARS almost 2 decades ago.

The application you are looking at was filed on 2020-05-17. Published in October.
Yes. US201562240783P was filed in 2015.
And has nothing to do with COVID-19
You need to learn a little about how patents work. "Priority" means that an earlier patent application may be involved in a more recent one.
