Cambridge scientist suggests virus did not originate in Wuhan
Getting tested: Residents wearing face masks lining up for nucleic acid testing at a residential compound in Wuhan
BEIJING: There is strong evidence that SARS-Cov-2, or the novel coronavirus that causes Covid-19, didn’t originate in the city of Wuhan, a University of Cambridge geneticist has found.
In a recent paper published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA, Peter Forster, a fellow in archaeological research at Cambridge, said he found three main strains of the virus, labelled as A, B and C.
The A and C types are found in significant proportions outside East Asia, that is, in Europeans and Americans.
In contrast, the B type is the most common type in East Asia.
The A strain was the founding variant because it was the version most similar to the type of SARS-Cov-2 discovered in bats, but it wasn’t the predominant type in Wuhan, according to his research.
Of 23 samples that came from Wuhan, only three were type A, the rest were type B, a version two mutations from A.
But in other parts of China, initially A was the predominant strain, the research said. For instance, of nine genome samples in Guangdong province, five were the A strain.
The A type has largely phased out, and the B type has become the predominant version. The C strain, which mainly appeared in Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and in some parts of Europe, has also largely died out.
His research also found that the coronavirus may have been circulating among humans and animals earlier than previously believed, based on an analysis of the mutation rate.
He found that there is a 95% chance that the original successful spread of the virus may have started as early as Sept 13,2019. Covid-19 was first reported in Wuhan in December.
old shit with diff spin recycled from ccp china daily, published again by ccp oversea propaganda news media zero star, n produced here again by a ccp propagandist, n add oil add salt from a jerk plus zero sensible n twisted argument from a nuts.ReplyDelete
“If I am pressed for an answer, I would say the original spread started more likely in southern China than in Wuhan,” Forster said.
he implied its from a yunnan bat.
Same shit with different spin, recycled from uncle Sam daily. Published again by demoNcratic propaganda news media, & reproduced here again by a 台毒 propagandist with a zero sensible & twisted argument.Delete
No need to use bombastic 南魔萬 England to convey a diarrhea.
Read better & more sensible, right, mfer?
recycle my writes is welcome, this exercise use less brain cell since u dun hv much.Delete
Use less brain?Delete
That's how u do c&p to twist a fart - definitely a brainless act!
I just CORRECT yr lies with improved England.
No brainer bcoz these lines r so easy to dispute.
Your headline is a piece of Fake News unrelated to the scientific discussion.ReplyDelete
Of course, I am well aware CCP is richer than Croesus, and can be just about anyone to promote their propaganda.
How did Hubei province bats fly to California ?ReplyDelete
Old moneyed mfer, bats r everywhere, California included!Delete
Coronavirus r native to bat as host. & there r NEVER any cases in history that bat infected human with coronavirus.
Coronavirus needs an intermediary host before it mutates lethally to infest human.
Similar to yr uncle Sam needs demoNcratically cocooned morons like u to be his propagandist!
The first AIDS case was detected in LA. We didn't call it the Yankee Doodle Virus.ReplyDelete
62 countries support call for Independent inquiry into the source of the CCP virus, but the CCP refuses to allow it.
Why? Why ? Why ?
Same shit lah!Delete
Didn't yr kawan selubang mention something about he been labeled as a paedophile bcoz of some paedophilic magazines lying around his house?
R u sharing the same shit with him?
"Your headline is a piece of Fake News unrelated to the scientific discussion."
Remember what u have written, old moneyed mfer?
1) daily telegraph oz is owned by News Corp. A lackey of trump, Murdoch uses it as a mouthpiece to voice trump's agenda.
2) A motion in the draft resolution (by the EU) requests WHO director general Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus work closely with the World Organisation for Animal Health, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and countries to “identify the zoonotic source of the virus”.
The motion also requests an examination of “the route of introduction to the human population, including the possible role of intermediate hosts”.
To discover its origins WHO should conduct “scientific and collaborative field missions” to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection in animals and humans.
Mfer, where is yr added statement of "62 countries support call for Independent inquiry into the source of the CCP virus, but the CCP refuses to allow it" ??
U r REALLY one lousy liar!
CK, he learned well from his Western masters who are even richer than Croesus, hehehe...printing worthless paper money with impunity.Delete
These parrots from the 3rd world are the West's most useful willing idiots as their ad nauseam echoes of their masters' reverberate mindlessly and endlessly to fit every and whatever occasions...no matter how irrelevant.
