WUHAN VIRUS: ITíS NO COINCIDENCE
Powerline ^ | MARCH 18, 2020 | JOHN HINDERAKER

Posted on 03/18/2020 2:06:03 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Check out this 2007 article in Clinical Microbiology Reviews, titled “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus as an Agent of Emerging and Reemerging Infection.” It begins:

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus (SARS-CoV) is a novel virus that caused the first major pandemic of the new millennium (89, 180, 259). The rapid economic growth in southern China has led to an increasing demand for animal proteins including those from exotic game food animals such as civets. Large numbers and varieties of these wild game mammals in overcrowded cages and the lack of biosecurity measures in wet markets allowed the jumping of this novel virus from animals to human (353, 376). Its capacity for human-to-human transmission, the lack of awareness in hospital infection control, and international air travel facilitated the rapid global dissemination of this agent.

Sounds familiar. The article concludes:

Coronaviruses are well known to undergo genetic recombination (375), which may lead to new genotypes and outbreaks. The presence of a large reservoir of SARS-CoV-like viruses in horseshoe bats, together with the culture of eating exotic mammals in southern China, is a time bomb. The possibility of the reemergence of SARS and other novel viruses from animals or laboratories and therefore the need for preparedness should not be ignored.

That was in 2007. Did the Centers for Disease Control take the hint?

It’s no coincidence. It’s by design just waiting for the right time to pull the trigger. When “impeach” failed —— TA DA!

Unbelievable. I mean, it’s believable alright, but astounding and dumbfounding too.

**************

The Center for Disease Control doesn’t seem to be prepared to control disease. Just saying.

The theory it came from the wet market is not considered likely anymore.

SARS, yes. This, it seems not to hold up with more data.

It could have been a mistake based on the likelihood of such an introduction or it could be a cover story when the Chinese government knew it was a contamination from the local Coronavirus lab.

Or the origin may be completely unknown as yet from an unforeseen mechanism.

EFF’N “A”

As we used to say.

100% correct.

Just got done talking to my best freind up near Green Bay WI. His folks are 95 and 97 years old. They went through WW2, and all that-polio, etc, and they have NEVER seen anything like this.

So whats that tell us?

There are NO coincidences!

What if China intentionally did not report the existence of the Chinese Communist Coronavirus until 5 or so million residents of Wuhan spread out around the world?

Just askin.

So it’s just coincidental that in all of South China where this exotic animal food demand exists the virus mutated in the same city that hosts China’s biowarfare headquarters?
