US Senate Report Concludes Lab Leak Origins of SARS-CoV-2

I got my COVD AUTUMN BOOSTER JAB (Pfizer Biontech) Saturday afternoon, unfortunately I have since been paying the price in terms of side effects that kicked in some 12 hours afterwards with shivers and chills, and continue as I write some 36 hours later I am feeling like I have a light flu, lethargic, lack of energy, drowsy despite having slept for over 12 hours. some Brain fog. Still I will see this article posted even if it is the last thing I do!


US Senate Report Concludes Lab Leak Origins of SARS-CoV-2

Back to the beginning, Wuhan Institute of Virology a couple of miles away from the Wuhan wet market.

https://www.help.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/report_an_analysis_of_the_origins_of_covid-19_102722.pdf

The jist of the 35 page report is that natural pandemics don't tend to start as one off events but as was the case with SARs1 and MERS there tend to be repeated outbreaks across the globe over a number of years from a large animal reservoir as the virus makes several attempts to jump species, this did not happen with SARS-Cov2 which is NEW virus that exploded onto the scene without any evolutionary history behind it i.e. there is no animal reservoir with repeat attempts to jump species, instead the virus was fully formed for human to human transmission with little genetic diversity in the initial outbreak (only 2 nucleotides difference out of 29000) amongst cases tested across China in early 2020 unlike today with the likes of Omicron that itself has sparked dozens of variants as it continues to mutate. So the virus was a finished 'product' hence spread like wildfire.

As I wrote 2.5 years ago, the silly billy's played with the genes of a bat virus and the world paid the price. First step is for China to recognise the magnitude of their error so as to prevent a potentially even worse repeat, else it WILL happen again!

The bottom line is that the case fatality rate of 0.9% (UK) for Covid-19 is nowhere as high as for MERS 50% so this time humanity got lucky as the pandemic showed just how unprepared the world was, it could have turned out to be many times worse!
