Scientist recovers coronavirus gene sequences secretly deleted last year in Wuhan

Finding the origin story for SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for nearly 3.9 million deaths worldwide, has been largely hampered by lack of access to information from China where cases first popped up.

Now, a researcher in Seattle has dug up deleted files from Google Cloud that reveal 13 partial genetic sequences for some of the earliest cases of COVID-19 in Wuhan, Carl Zimmer reported for The New York Times.

The sequences don't tip the scales toward or away from one of the many theories about how SARS-CoV-2 came to be — they do not suggest the virus leaked from a high-security lab in Wuhan, nor do they suggest a natural spillover event. But they do firm up the idea that the novel coronavirus was circulating earlier than the first major outbreak at a seafood market.

In order to determine exactly how and where the virus originated, scientists need to find the so-called progenitor virus, the one from which all other strains descended. Until now, the earliest sequences are primarily those sampled from cases at the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, which was initially thought to be where the novel coronavirus first emerged at the end of December 2019. However, cases from early December and as far back as November 2019 had no ties to the market, indicating pretty early in the pandemic that the virus emerged from another spot….

Sometimes when people try to delete something, they’re not really deleting it. Hunan Wet Market, my foot.

Wow, we are back to the disgusting wet market theory. The fact remains, China is a grotesque society.

Ok, let’s have a logical discussion about this wet market theory.

Suppose there was a nuclear weapons lab not more than 500 meters from the wet market and a nuclear detonation occurred in Wuhan. Is it more likely that the detonation occured in a wet market or a bomb plant?

Think really hard about this, it’s a trick question!

Remember when a coverup was considered a bad thing ?

I am sure it was all innocent, like there seattle politicians are

“In order to determine exactly how and where the virus originated, scientists need to find the so-called progenitor virus, the one from which all other strains descended.”

They don’t need find the progenitor virus to know it was “engineered,” but only to help discern whether it was a deliberately released bio weapon.

This virus was undoubtedly engineered.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.

How many people from that region traveled.. esp by airplane. In the end, they will lie about this because our scientists are more like lawyers.. interpreting evidence based on agenda.
The masking and the lockdowns allowed it to remain longer. Rna changes with replication by nature, so finding the progenitor virus is just jargon for natural processes causing the virus are the only acceptable outcome.
Scientists will not accept anything other.

It was definitely a deliberately released bio-weapon.

I don’t know if it was engineered. That is a technical term and involves gene splicing, etc. It could have been “bred.” What I am 99.999999999% certain of is that human hands were involved in its creation. This was no accidental cross species jump. Nothing jumps and is a near perfect infective agent fitting the receptors in the human body like a key in a lock. Some “tumblers” mismatch in any jump. Covid19 fits the lock like it was made for it because it was.

Still wondering what American companies and universities with boots on the ground in Wuhan knew and when they knew it back in late ‘19 and early ‘20...

Yeah...it like police radar...if it’s hitting you you can detect it and sense it. If you get the Kung Flu, it can be analyzed and determined it was human engineered.

I think the article suggests the opposite: that the sequences found are different from those supposedly originating in the wet market, indicating a different source.

There are highly technical reasons it probably wasn’t bred.
FReepmail me for details.

Incidentally, two Nobel Prize winners — Luc Montaigner who co-discovered HIV, and David Baltimore, who discovered reverse transcriptase, said it was bio-engineered.

My co-worker had it in December 2019 and, since she sat right behind me, I caught it too. Since I am O+ and take Vitamin D I was over it in a few days, she was on a ventilator for a week.

In order to "prove" it they need this data. However, it's quite clear it came from the Wuhan Lab, one way or another.

That is exactly right. Science has become a tool and a plaything of the Social(ist) Engineers.

I think John Stewart nailed it.

Most of the comments here have missed the central point...

They are trying to establish the theory that C-19 did NOT originate in Wuhan - therefore, it did not come from the Wuhan Lab.
