Incoserv and everyone, that is a chilling quote you provided from the one and only George Orwell. The
American Library Association's publications catalog has a section related to intellectual freedom. Among other items there, they also sell bookmarks
and a coffee mug, all labeled with the slogan, Make Orwell Fiction Again. ... no kidding.
The US government is continuing to look at all available evidence of where this novel virus came from, but that question is still far from settled.
As time goes on, my impression is more that there was a natural origin, either somewhere in the People's Republic of China or possibly even incoming
from a comet during a "favorable" lull in solar activity. If I had to vote right now, I'd recommend looking at Asian offshore marine mammals ...
(theory says if it's from an animal source, that animal has to be a mammal). And last I heard, all of the in-depth genetic analysis done on Chinese
mammals was only from *land* animals.
Getting back to the OP, however, since Bloomberg News has now started to look seriously at a much longer probable duration for the COVID-19 pandemic,
they're also going to have to start reporting on long-term demographic effects, such as a possible extended drop in the human birth rate.
