CCP/SARS-CoVid-19 Phylogeny Update

NextStrain update: https://nextstrain.org/ncov/global For the longest time, CCP/CoVid-19 has shown remarkable viral genetic stability – remarkable for a zoonotic pathogen that only “recently jumped” species. Even more remarkable in that the “jump” occurred without any known species as the vector. And further remarkable that CCP/CoVid-19 is ~96% similar to a virus “discovered” in an abandonedContinue reading “CCP/SARS-CoVid-19 Phylogeny Update”

CCP/SARS-CoVid-19 Fully Sequenced

In a bioRxiv preprint, Chen et al. (2021) report the results of the first genomic sequencing of the virus. Chen traces CCP back to RaTG13 and RmYN02 – strains reported by Chinese researchers as detected in Yunnan province of China, but yet to be found elsewhere. The study considered over 4,000 full-length viral sequences made availableContinue reading “CCP/SARS-CoVid-19 Fully Sequenced”

A Year Later with the Sock Puppet Installed As President, Washington Post Discovers Lab Leak Potential At WIV

Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/02/05/coronavirus-origins-mystery-china/?arc404=true Many scientists have speculated that the virus leaped from animals, such as bats, to humans, perhaps with an intermediate stop in another animal. This kind of zoonotic spillover has occurred before, such as in the West Africa Ebola outbreak in 2014. But there is another pathway, also plausible, that must be investigated. That is theContinue reading “A Year Later with the Sock Puppet Installed As President, Washington Post Discovers Lab Leak Potential At WIV”

CoVid Viral Load: What is Truth?

From Off-Guardian: In a request for a study which shows complete isolation and purification of the particles claimed to be SARS-CoV-2, Michael Laue from one of the world’s most important representatives of the COVID-19 “panicdemic,” the German Robert Koch Institute (RKI), answered that[1]: I am not aware of a paper which purified isolated SARS-CoV-2. ThisContinue reading “CoVid Viral Load: What is Truth?”

Corrupt Joe’s Adviser Concedes CoVid Was a Containment Breach

From ZeroHedge: “There’s no irrefutable evidence,” said the Kansas-born Metzl, a senior Atlantic Council fellow who was appointed to the WHO expert advisory committee on human genome editing in 2019. “There’s just more evidence and as more evidence arrives, the case for accidental lab leak, in my view, increases.” More from Metzl’s interview with the Sun (emphasis ours):Continue reading “Corrupt Joe’s Adviser Concedes CoVid Was a Containment Breach”

The Mathematics Against Lockdowns

In a bioRxiv preprint first posted October 21, 2020 (and later published in Molecular Biology and Evolution), Dellacour et al. (2020) report their studies of the spatial density of available SARS-CoV-2 genomes mapped in the Belgium epidemic. Their phylodynamic analysis demonstrates real-time dispersion dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 lineages. Among other things, their spatially-explicit phylogeographic analyses highlight thatContinue reading “The Mathematics Against Lockdowns”

“A Personal Financial Disaster”

Quite a year: Socialist governments have slaughtered small businesses by the thousands, with more than 70 million new claims for unemployment benefits have been filed since the COVID pandemic first started. A brutal, government-mandated economic depression. A Federal government carrying over $27 trillion in debt. A OnePoll survey reports 55% of Americans consider 2020 aContinue reading ““A Personal Financial Disaster””

What Risk?

Chris Hamilton (Econimica.com) is known for his insightful statistical analysis of the economy. And, last week, Chris did a great job poking through the CoV data in response to Oregon’s lockdown order. But, first, the order. Last week State Potentate Kate Brown issued the following statement:  “As we near 100,000 cases of COVID-19 in Oregon,Continue reading “What Risk?”
