New evidence of COVID's origins
« on: March 17, 2023, 06:53:19 AM »
For three years now, the debate over the origins of the coronavirus pandemic has ping-ponged between two big ideas: that SARS-CoV-2 spilled into human populations directly from a wild-animal source, and that the pathogen leaked from a lab. Through a swirl of data obfuscation by Chinese authorities and politicalization within the United States, and rampant speculation from all corners of the world, many scientists have stood by the notion that this outbreak—like most others—had purely natural roots. But that hypothesis has been missing a key piece of proof: genetic evidence from the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan, China, showing that the virus had infected creatures for sale there.

PThis week, an international team of virologists, genomicists, and evolutionary biologists may have finally found crucial data to help fill that knowledge gap. A new analysis of genetic sequences collected from the market shows that raccoon dogs being illegally sold at the venue could have been carrying and possibly shedding the virus at the end of 2019. It’s some of the strongest support yet, experts told me, that the pandemic began when SARS-CoV-2 hopped from animals into humans, rather than in an accident among scientists experimenting with viruses.

I just finished reading that and was pondering posting it. 

This is several data points.  It is not a smoking gun.   The smoking gun will likely not be found.

I saw this story this morning also.

I think the best part is "racoon dogs" which in of itself sounds like a mutation.

I've tried to care.   If we ever found the 100% truth, it wouldn't change anything. 

The virus began in China, either through negligence, malfeasance, or the galactic stupidity of allowing wet markets.   

The one unifying theme is that China has brought catastrophic misery upon the world.

I don't blame them for wet markets. I blame them for hiding the impact of the infection once it jumped to humans. Unconscionable.

Wet markets can be found globally. Gain of function research is extremely valuable. Keeping mum about people dying is hard for me to understand when it comes to communicating with other gov't/scientific organizations. Fine, don't panic the people, but China hid everything from us and that was wholly under their control no matter where the virus jumped to humans first.

62% of Americans now believe the Covid 19 virus was created in and leaked from a lab

33% believe it came from nature.

54% think the Biden administration is covering up on the nature of its origins

41% believe they’re not.

Common sense.

Tracing it to its origin has scientific merit.

Sorry, 99.5% of people shouldn't care.

The only reason people care is so they can play the "told you so" game.

This is correct, too.  We’re still not 100% sure where the Spanish Flu began other than knowing it didn’t start in Spain.  We’re pretty sure it started in the United States, though.  One thing we know for certain, regardless of where it began, initial reaction to its emergence was terribly handled

It is well established that Lenny and I have diametrically different opinions about what is and isn't common sense.    This is just another example.  Or, if we agreed, I would rethink my position.

81 million Biden voters still wear masks when they are outside alone or in their car alone.
