COVID-19: the geographically widening bats' natural coronaviruses and bioweapon mystery solved
By Sunshine Li, China

Contents

I. My 4 major conclusios on bats, bats’ natural coronaviruses and their relationship with SARS and COVID-19.

II. Almost the whole world has believed that only China has the horseshoe bats that harbor the coronaviruses that have caused SARS and COVID-19 and China is naturally the origin of SARS and COVID-19, to which I have been objecting.

III. Breaking scientific discovery: horseshoe bats harboring coronaviruses more or much more identical to COVID-19 virus/SARS-CoV-2 were recently found in ASEAN countries and Japan.

IV. The above breaking discovery means that China can be scientifically cleared from the speculation of COVID-19’s natural origin, and the hypothesis of a natural origin of SARS and COVID-19 should be mostly ended.

V. Studies show that bats with coronaviruses have also been found in Kazakhstan and other parts of the world. Unsurprisingly, they have not naturally caused epidemics or pandemics.

VI. Personally, I still insist that human manipulation of bats' natural coronaviruses “identical” or "nearly identical"to SASR/COVID-19, or bioweapon coronaviruses is at least a 90% chance.

VII. US bioweapon programs not only pose a huge and deadly threat internationally but also more or many more domestically.

VIII. More disclosures, articles, reports and studies on US bioweapons for referece.

IX. The simple deadly fact that USA has been playing with the most deadly bioweapons in the world and and plunging the American people into great danger was also discussed in lengthy details in my long research article, with tips listed hereunder.

==================

Frankly, before the COVID-19/SARS-Cov-2 outbreak in Wuhan, China, I have been studying the great GMO harm to and chronically deadly GMO poisoning of the Chinese people in the past 20 years.

After the outbreak, due to the national and interational chorus that certain Chinese ate bats or wild animals and caused the pandemic and worldwide fierce attacks on China as the COVID-19 origin by US-Australia-led coalition, I had to stop my study on GMOs and shift to bats, bats' natural coronaviruses and the origin of COVID-19 pandmic and lab/man-made viruses.


I. My 4 major conclusions on bats, bats’ natural coronaviruses and their relationship with SARS and COVID-19.

Based on history, facts and scientific studies, I have come to 4 major conclusios about bats, bats' natural coronaviruses and their relations with science and lab/man-made coronaviruses as bioweapons.

1. Bats are not the culprits of SARS attacking China end of 2002 and in 2003 and COVID-19 attacking China and the whole world end of 2019 and till now.

2. Bat's natural coronaviruses, recombined or not, mutated or not, do not infect humans, even if they have sporadically entered human blood.

3. All scientific studies/claims that bat's natural coronaviruses can infect humans and cause an epidemic/a pandemic are pure scientific deceptions, because the researchers/scientists just created genitifically engineered/modified/edited lab viruses with high, medium or low epidemi/pandemic potential and then they forced the lab/man-made viruses on bats’ natural coronaviruses.

4. In view of the multitude of its exceptional unnatural abnormalities (exceptionally high infectivity and transmissibility, exceptionally frequent mutations, exceptionally massive damage to organs, etc.), the novel coranaviruses causing the COVID-19 pandemic has at least 90% possibility of a lab/man made bioweapon with bats’ natural coronavirus as a carrier.


II. Almost the whole world has believed that only China has the horseshoe bats that harbor the coronaviruses that have caused SARS and COVID-19 and China is naturally the origin of SARS and COVID-19, to which I have been objecting.

So far, almost the whole world has been misled to believe that only a cave in Yunnan Province in the southwest of China hosts the horseshoe bats and only these bats harbor the coronaviruses that have mysteriously caused the SARS epidemic and the COVID-19 pandemic, and so, China is naturally and scientifically regarded as the origin of SARS and COVID-19.

[2019-nCoV is sufficiently divergent from SARS-CoV to be considered a new human-infecting betacoronavirus.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/china-bat-caves-exploring-search-110100853.html

However, in my long article probing the origin of COVID-19, I predicted that there should be the same bats and same natural coronaviruses in other parts of the world:

Connecting the dots: which is the real origin of the global deadly COVID-19 pandemic, China, Italy or USA? What has biotech brought us?

[3. Why China became the target of worldwide accusations as the origin of SARS and COVID-19?

(6) As studies and attention have only been focused in China on SARS-like and COVID-19-like bats’ natural coronaviruses, almost no such studies have been done on bats’ coronaviruses in USA, Europe and other parts of the world.

So, are there SARS-like and COVID-19-like bats’ natural coronaviruses in those areas? The answer is a big YES!

But, till today, have these bat’s natural coronaviruses caused a SARS epidemic or COVID-19 pandemic, though some people have been enjoying bat soup as a delicacy for a long time? The answer is a big NO!

Since historically, bats’ natural coronaviruses in all other countries have not caused an epidemic or a pandemic, how could bats’ natural coronaviruses in China be so miraculous and powerful as to have caused SARS and COVID-19 in a short period of just 17 years?]


III. Breaking scientific discovery: horseshoe bats harboring coronaviruses more or much more identical to COVID-19 virus/SARS-CoV-2 than those in China were recently found in ASEAN countries and Japan.

By chance, I recently spotted a report that there are bats’ natural coronaviruses in Cambodia and Japan that are more identical to the COVID-19 virus causing the current worldwide pandemic.

Hence, my above prediction/hypothesis that there should be bats harboring coronaviruses similar to COVID-19 virus outside China is now scientifically verified.

Here are the reports and studies that bats’s natural coronaviruses similar or highly similar to COVID-19 virus were found outside China in Cambodia and Japan:

1. Initial reports of the important discovery around November 23, 2020.

Scientists detect a sarbecovirus phylogenetically related to SARS-CoV-2 from bats in Japan

https://www.news-medical.net/news/20201202/Scientists-detect-a-sarbecovirus-phylogenetically-related-to-SARS-CoV-2-from-bats-in-Japan.aspx
[Nearly a year on since it was first detected in humans in Wuhan, China, SARS-CoV-2 has infected over 63.93 million people across the globe and has killed over 1.48 million.

A team of researchers at the University of Tokyo in Japan have detected a sarbecovirus, called Rc-o319, which is phylogenetically positioned in the same clade as SARS-CoV-2 in Rhinolophus cornutus bats in Japan.

Betacoronaviruses are a large family of pathogens characterized by their lipid envelopes, positive-strand RNA, and spike proteins. Two viruses of the subgenus SArbecovirus are SARS and SARS-CoV-2.

The Rhinolophus bats or horseshoe bats are natural reservoirs of sarbecoviruses in Asia, Europe, and Africa, but their epidemiology and distribution remain unknown.

In 2020, the team performed RNA sequencing and found the full genome sequence of one sample, Rc-o139. They performed a BLAST analysis on the entire genome of Rc-o139, which showed the highest nucleotide homology to the SARS-CoV-2 HKG/HKU strain. The data gathered thus showed that Rc-o319 is genetically related to SARS-CoV-2.]

2. Study and reports of the important discovery around January 26, 2021.

[Here we describe the identification of SARS-CoV-2 related coronaviruses in two Rhinolophus shameli bats sampled in Cambodia in 2010. Metagenomic sequencing identified nearly identical viruses sharing 92.6% nucleotide identity with SARS-CoV-2. Most genomic regions are closely related to SARS-CoV-2, with the exception of a small region corresponding to the spike N terminal domain. The discovery of these viruses in a bat species not found in China indicates that SARS-CoV-2 related viruses have a much wider geographic distribution than previously understood, and suggests that Southeast Asia represents a key area to consider in the ongoing search for the origins of SARS-CoV-2, and in future surveillance for coronaviruses.]

COVID-19: Bats living in Cambodia in 2010 carried 'nearly identical' pathogen to COVID-19 virus, scientists discover

[Bats that lived in a Cambodian cave in 2010 carried a pathogen that is "nearly identical" to the virus that causes COVID-19, scientists have discovered.

Samples the scientists tested have been stored in a freezer at the Pasteur Institute in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, since December 2010 following a study by the Natural History Museum in Paris and mandated by UNESCO.

By sequencing samples from 430 bats gathered more than a decade ago, they found viruses "nearly identical" to the one that causes COVID-19 in two Rhinolophus shameli bats, otherwise known as Shemal's horseshoe bats, which are found in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.]


IV. The above breaking discovery means that China can be scientifically cleared from the speculation of COVID-19’s natural origin, and the hypothesis of a natural origin of SARS and COVID-19 should be mostly ended.

The above breaking scientific discovery not only means that China can now scientifically cleared from the speculation that COVID-19 pandemic started in China from bats or wild animals, but also means that the hgypothesis that SARS and COVID-19 originated from nature should mostly be ended for the following reasonings and facts.

1. Since horseshoe bats’ natural coronaviruses more identical to COVID-19 in ASEAN countries have historically and factually not caused epidemics or pandemics, it is more impossible for horseshoe bats in China to do otherwise, esp., causing SARS and COVID-19 in a short span of 17 years!
科学:非典 新冠源自蝙蝠.jpg

How many years have these horseshoe bats been in ASEAN countries and Japan? Unknown yet, but at least thousans of years, and even millions of years.

2. Since the l;ong-existing horse shoe bats in ASEAN countries and Japan have historically and factually not caused SARS or COVID-19, and it is more impossible for the bat family in China, the hypothesis that SARS and COVID-19 originaed from nature should be ended.

So, unless someone can find other strong evidence to support the hypothesis of natural origins of SARS and COVID-19, no allegations of natural origina of SARS and/or COVID-19 should be made to China, ASEAN countries and Japan, as long history and facts have proven this is impossible.

Period.


V. Studies show that bats with coronaviruses have also been found in Kazakhstan and other parts of the world. Unsurprisingly, they have not naturally caused epidemics or pandemics.

Then I did some websearch and found more: there are bats carrying natural coronaviruses in Kazakhstan and other parts of the world except in China, ASEAN coutries and Japan!

1. Study that announced discovery of Novel Bat Coronavirus Lineages in Kazakhstan on 31 January 2019.

Discovery and Characterization of Novel Bat Coronavirus Lineages from Kazakhstan

https://www.mdpi.com/1999-4915/11/4/356
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30999711
[In this study, bat guano was collected from bat caves in three different sites of southern Kazakhstan that tested positive for coronaviruses. Our phylogenetic reconstruction indicates these are novel bat coronaviruses that belong to the genus Alphacoronavirus. In addition, two distinct lineages of Kazakhstan bat coronaviruses were detected. Both lineages are closely related to bat coronaviruses from China, France, Spain, and South Africa, suggesting that co-circulation of coronaviruses is common in multiple bat species with overlapping geographical distributions.]

All studies on bats’ natural coronaviruses seem to point them to infectious diseases and/or epidemic/pademic potential, but I still insist that history,facts ad science have denied such associations, because nowadays, it is as easy as abc to scientifically/ biotechnologically manipulate bat’s natural coronaviruses into lab/man-made viruses or more exactly, bioweapons.

Bioweapons, as a key and actual WMD, regretfully, are still not attracting due scientific/political attention and action.

And I still stand firm with my claim that human society should work together to finally ban biotech application in agriculture, food, medicine and microbia modification/editing (bacteria, viruses, pathogens, fungi, etc.) to produce chronically deadly biotoxic GMOs or acutely deadly bioweapons.

2. Study that says bats almost worldwide carry coronaviruses.

As I did not care about harmless bats and their natural coronaviruses before the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan toward the end of 2019, in the beginning of my research, my scope of knowledge was limited by bat scientists and other virologists as to think that only bats in China carry coronaviruses. But those scientists know well that there are bats harboring coronaviruses in many parts of the world, as highlighted in the following study:

Discovery of Novel Bat Coronaviruses in South China That Use the Same Receptor as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus
2018 Jul 1
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6002729
https://dx.doi.org/10.1128/JVI.00116-18
[In addition, highly diverse MERS-related CoVs have been identified from a wide range of vespertilionid bats inhabiting Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America (6,–15). Among them, MERS-related CoVs from Neoromicia capensis bats in South Africa share a genome-wide nucleotide identity of 85% with MERS-CoV and are considered the closest relatives of MERS-CoV discovered so far (6, 7). However, the spike proteins of these viruses do not use human or bat dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (hDPP4 or bDPP4, respectively), which is the MERS-CoV receptor (9, 16, 17).]

But these findings/studies are not enough or far from enough. Investigations should be made into bats in European, African, American and Middle East countries as well as Australia and New Zealand to determine if bats in all these countries carry the same coronaviruses as in China and ASEAN countries and are highly similar to the SARS/COVID-19 virus. Before the investigation is done, one thing is for sure: bats with coronaviruses in these parts of the world have historically and factually not casued epidemics or pandemics.


VI. Personally, I still insist that human manipulation of bats' natural coronaviruses “identical” or "nearly identical"to SASR/COVID-19, or bioweapon coronaviruses is at least a 90% chance.

As stated above, history, facts and science have proved that bat’s natural coronaviruses do not infect humans and cause an epidemic/a pandemic.

However, there are studies and disclosures that lab/man-made coronaviruses based on bats’ natural coronaviruses as a carrier virus can infect humans and cause an epidemic/a pandemic.

This is elaborated in my long article and here are the tips:

Connecting the dots: which is the real origin of the global deadly COVID-19 pandemic, China, Italy or USA? What has biotech brought us?
https://www.veteranstoday.com/2021/01/05/connecting-the-dots-which-is-the-real-origin-of-the-global-deadly-covid-19-pandemic-china-italy-or-usa-what-has-biotech-brought-us
[2. All studies that tried to prove or hypothesized that bat’s natural coronaviruses could infect human cells or humans and cause an epidemic or a pandemic are falsely manipulated: beginning in science but ending in scientific deceptions and lies!

4. With samples in hand, COVID-19 viruses can be easily scientifically bio-reproduced in labs and they have the potential of a bioweapon.

5. The earliest openly published epidemic/pandemic-causing coronaviruses was lab/man-made in USA yet covered up as “bat coronavirus”.]

And not surprisingly, there are also bats’ coronaviruses manipulated as bioweapons: reports and facts that US military biolabs playing with bats’ coronaviruses with the potential of bioweapons through biotech.

Here are the disclosures based on facts, reports and documents that US military labs have been playing natural coronaviruses into bioweapons or bioweapon coronaviruses. And the manipulation has run so deep that even a whole bat can be used as a bioweapon by forcing it to carry biotechnologically lab/man-made coronaviruses!

Bats, Gene Editing And Bioweapons: Recent DARPA Experiments Raise Concerns Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
January 30, 2020
https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/top-news/bats-gene-editing-bioweapons-recent-darpa-experiments-raise-concerns-amid-coronavirus-outbreak
http://www.renegadetribune.com/bats-gene-editing-and-bioweapons-recent-darpa-experiments-raise-concerns-amid-coronavirus-outbreak
https://uncensored.co.nz/2020/02/04/bats-gene-editing-and-bioweapons-recent-darpa-experiments-raise-concerns-amid-coronavirus-outbreak
[DARPA recently spent millions on research involving bats and coronaviruses, as well as gene editing “bioweapons” prior to the recent coronavirus outbreak.

while many of these theories are clearly speculative, there is also verifiable evidence regarding the recent interest of one controversial U.S. government agency in novel coronaviruses, specifically those transmitted from bats to humans. That agency, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), began spending millions on such research in 2018 and some of those Pentagon-funded studies were conducted at known U.S. military bioweapons labs bordering China and resulted in the discovery of dozens of new coronavirus strains as recently as last April.

While it remains entirely unknown as to what caused the outbreak, the details of DARPA’s and the Pentagon’s recent experimentation are clearly in the public interest, especially considering that the very companies recently chosen to develop a vaccine to combat the coronavirus outbreak are themselves strategic allies of DARPA. Not only that, but these DARPA-backed companies are developing controversial DNA and mRNA vaccines for this particular coronavirus strain, a category of vaccine that has never previously been approved for human use in the United States.

Though most English-language media outlets to date have not examined such a possibility, there is considerable supporting evidence that deserves to be examined. For instance, not only was the U.S. military, including its controversial research arm — the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), recently funding studies in and near China that discovered new, mutant coronaviruses originating from bats, but the Pentagon also became recently concerned about the potential use of bats as bioweapons.

Bats as Bioweapons

Two years ago, media reports began discussing the Pentagon’s sudden concern that bats could be used as biological weapons, particularly in spreading coronaviruses and other deadly diseases. The Washington Post asserted that the Pentagon’s interest in investigating the potential use of bats to spread weaponized and deadly diseases was because of alleged Russian efforts to do the same. However, those claims regarding this Russian interest in using bats as bioweapons date back to the 1980s when the Soviet Union engaged in covert research involving the Marburg virus, research that did not even involve bats and which ended with the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991.

Like much of the Pentagon’s controversial research programs, the bats as bioweapons research has been framed as defensive, despite the fact that no imminent threat involving bat-propagated bioweapons has been acknowledged. However, independent scientists have recently accused the Pentagon, particularly its research arm DARPA, of claiming to be engaged in research it says is “defensive” but is actually “offensive.”

Whatever the real motivation behind the Pentagon’s sudden and recent concern about bats being used as a vehicle for bioweapons, the U.S. military has spent millions of dollars over the past several years funding research on bats, the deadly viruses they can harbor — including coronaviruses — and how those viruses are transmitted from bats to humans.

For instance, DARPA spent $10 million on one project in 2018 “to unravel the complex causes of bat-borne viruses that have recently made the jump to humans, causing concern among global health officials.” Another research project backed by both DARPA and NIH saw researchers at Colorado State University examine the coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in bats and camels “to understand the role of these hosts in transmitting disease to humans.” Other U.S. military-funded studies, discussed in detail later in this report, discovered several new strains of novel coronaviruses carried by bats, both within China and in countries bordering China.

One of those studies focused on “Bat-Borne Zoonotic Disease Emergence in Western Asia” and involved the Lugar Center in Georgia, identified by former Georgian government officials, the Russian government and independent, investigative journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva as a covert U.S. bioweapons lab.

It is also important to point out the fact that the U.S. military’s key laboratories involving the study of deadly pathogens, including coronaviruses, Ebola and others, was suddenly shut down last July after the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified major “biosafety lapses” at the facility.

Another U.S. government-funded study that discovered still more new strains of “novel bat coronavirus” was published just last year. .... In other words, the coronaviruses discovered in this study were identified in bat populations that migrate between China and Kazakhstan, among other countries, and is closely related to bat coronaviruses in several countries, including China.

The study’s authors are affiliated with either the Kazakhstan-based Research Institute for Biological Safety Problems and/or Duke University. The Research Institute for Biological Safety Problems, though officially a part of Kazakhstan’s National Center for Biotechnology, has received millions from the U.S. government, most of it coming from the Pentagon’s Cooperative Threat Reduction Program. It is the Kazakhstan government’s official depository of “highly dangerous animal and bird infections, with a collection of 278 pathogenic strains of 46 infectious diseases.” It is part of a network of Pentagon-funded “bioweapons labs” throughout the Central Asian country, which borders both of the U.S.’ top rival states — China and Russia.

Bats have been blamed for the deadly Ebola outbreak in Africa (2014-2016). However, no conclusive evidence of exactly how the virus “jumped” to humans has ever been provided, which raises suspicions of intentional and not natural infection.

US Biological Warfare Program in the Spotlight Again
September 13, 2018
https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/09/13/us-biological-warfare-program-in-spotlight-again
https://thedailycoin.org/2018/09/16/us-biological-warfare-program-in-the-spotlight-again
[Eurasia Review reported that in 2014 the Lugar Center was equipped with a special plant for breeding insects to enable launching the Sand Fly project in Georgia and the Caucasus. In 2014-2015 years, the bites of sand flies such as Phlebotomins caused a fever. According to the source, “today the Pentagon has a great interest to the study of Tularemia, also known as the fever of rabbits, which is also equated with biological weapons. Distributors of such a disease can be mites and rodents”.]

Many Americans will be mad at me for my claim/evidence that SARS and COVID-19 viruses are bioweapons made by USA and will counterpunch that they were made by China.

But the fact is: China can lab-make a coronavirus by inserting HIV and Ebola genes, yet I don’t know if the only level 4 lab in Wuhan has done that or not, but even if they have tried that, they are unable to make a virus so sophicated as COVID-19 virus with so many unatural abnormalities, esp, its massive damage to almost every organ and exceptionally frequent mutations.

And the most important point is: even till now, China is unable to make a virus that spreads 1,000 times faster than SARS virus! This can be achieved only by 1 country: USA!

Some people may still argue that there used to be cooperation between China and USA in coronavirus research and USA can supply the technology and material China lacked to make a COVID-19 virus in China, but don’t forget that USA has been imposing the most rigid embargo on sensitive, esp., highly sensitive technology and material to China, and US researchers/scientists would not and dared not break the law and face very serious cosequences. So, the highly sophiscated and most destructive COVID-19 virus is definitely lab/man-made in USA!


VII. US bioweapon programs not only pose a huge and deadly threat internationally but also more or many more domestically.

Why Americans have been exposed to more or many more huge and deadly bioweapon threats? Simply because there are so many biolabs of all types across USA playing with the most deadly bacteria, viruses and pathogens. And once in a while, there could be a leak or intentional release from one of biolabs.

Unsurprisingly, many Americans are relunctant to admit this simple fact and that’s becasue they simply do not know or realize this simple deadly truth, or they just try to cover it up with patriotism even if they know or realize it.

Actually, loving one's country is one thing and facing and opposing the harm and danger the country has been causing to you is another. Better not mix up the 2 fundamentally different things.

As we need international joint efforts to put an end to bioweapons and/or abuse of biotech, we need to wake up these Americans with simple facts so that they can join in the said international joint efforts.

COVID-19 originated at the US Military’s bio-weapons lab at Fort Detrick (which was shut down by the CDC in July, because of outbreaks)
March 20, 2020
http://stateofthenation.co/?p=9469
https://www.globalresearch.ca/covid-19-all-truth-three-stages/5706329
[Briefly, Chinese virologists discovered conclusively that the original source of the virus was not China, nor Wuhan, nor the seafood market, but had been traced to the US, a possible scenario being that the virus might have originated at the US Military’s bio-weapons lab at Fort Detrick (which was shut down by the CDC in July, because of outbreaks), and brought to China during the World Military Games in October 2019.

Also, Japanese and Taiwanese virologists arrived independently at the conclusion that the virus could have originated in the US.

They stated (factually) that Chinese researchers had participated (7 years ago) in similar virus research funded by the US NIH, thus somehow insinuating Chinese culpability, ignoring that the prior research was irrelevant to current events.

I must say the Americans have proven to be very skillful in grabbing the microphone first, to create an “official” narrative of a current event while flooding the media with sufficient finger-pointing to preclude a gullible public the time to logically assemble the pieces on their own.

Coronavirus : bioterror and the US military laboratory in Kazakhstan-investigation (PHOTO)
17.03.2020
https://fort-russ.com/2020/03/coronavirus-bioterror-and-the-us-military-laboratory-in-kazakhstan-investigation
https://www.cassiopaea.org/forum/threads/coronavirus-pandemic-apocalypse-now-or-exaggerated-scare-story.48214/page-157
[Recently, Kazakhstan's yvision resource reported that "a source among the staff of the Central reference laboratory (CRL) in Almaty confirmed that the deadly coronavirus was developed in this institution."

This laboratory was created with the financial support of the US army and is still controlled by representatives of Washington.

A source of the Kazakh publication reported that the bioobjects containing coronavirus delivered to the CRL in the winter of 2020 - "at the molecular level, they completely coincide with the strain, the study of which was started in the laboratory about two years ago and which, according to his observations, should not have left the CRL all this time.

This was a joint development led by scientists from the Centers for disease control and prevention of the United States as part of the final stage of training a large group of Kazakh epidemiologists."

According to the publication (Viruses, 2019, p.2), the mentioned American studies of the coronavirus were conducted in April–may 2017, that is, strictly within the time period named by the source. Moreover, both the species studied in 2017 and COVID-19 belong to coronaviruses carried by bats.

Even more strange is the ability of the aforementioned Professor Gavin Smith to find bats that carry the coronavirus literally anywhere. In 2017, he published a study (Transbound Emerg Dis, Dec; 64(6): 1790-1800. doi: 10.1111/tbed.12568), dedicated to bats with coronavirus in Singapore. When he got to Kazakhstan, he also found the same object of research, although the Republic was not previously famous for such a disease. You'd think he was being followed by his own private mouse pack with his own coronavirus.

It is suspected that bats in Kazakhstan were artificially infected with a coronavirus, the strains of which were obtained in the middle East, in the natural range of the disease.

The genetically modified sample, later called COVID-19, could have crossed the border accidentally or as a result of deliberate manipulation.

The recent mass pogrom in the Dungan villages of the Kordai district can also be considered as an attempt to" clean up " witnesses of the work of American military biologists in the area in 2017-2019, their negligence or deliberate actions to import COVID-19 to China.

We also call on international organizations, including UN agencies, to ask the us Department of defense about the nature of biological research in Kazakhstan funded by this Agency.

Military Biological Treachery
December 17, 2020
https://thenationalreporterng.com/military-biological-treachery
[However, 400 American military biological laboratories in 25 countries of the world that are very remote from the territory of the United States (in Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, etc.) are too many. And all 400 more or less carry out developments, the content of which is kept in the strictest confidence.

There are doubts about the outbreaks of diseases that occur in the areas where these military biological laboratories are located. So, in Ukraine, 20 soldiers were killed from a virus similar to influenza A (H1N1), in Georgia there was a sudden surge of Congo-Crimean hemorrhagic fever, in Abkhazia, mosquitoes suddenly appeared – carriers of the zika virus.

The US says the coronavirus was bred in a laboratory and blames China for spreading the epidemic. However, in 2017, it was in Kazakhstan that a group of American scientists studied the coronaviruses of bats living in local caves. The work was carried out as part of the KZ-33 project of the US Defence Threat Prevention Agency.

The COVID-19 epidemic has shown that the virus can be a very real weapon to destroy opponents.

[BIOLABS IN YOUR BACKYARD
Probe identifies over 200 biolabs
FROM NEW YORK CITY TO A VALLEY IN MONTANA

Vials of bioterror bacteria have gone missing. Lab mice infected with deadly viruses have escaped, and wild rodents have been found making nests with research waste. Cattle infected in a university's vaccine experiments were repeatedly sent to slaughter and their meat sold for human consumption. Gear meant to protect lab workers from lethal viruses such as Ebola and bird flu has failed, repeatedly.

A USA TODAY Network investigation reveals that hundreds of lab mistakes, safety violations and near-miss incidents have occurred in biological laboratories coast to coast in recent years, putting scientists, their colleagues and sometimes even the public at risk.

Oversight of biological research labs is fragmented, often secretive and largely self-policing, the investigation found. And even when research facilities commit the most egregious safety or security breaches — as more than 100 labs have — federal regulators keep their names secret.

Of particular concern are mishaps occurring at institutions working with the world's most dangerous pathogens in biosafety level 3 and 4 labs — the two highest levels of containment that have proliferated since the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001. Yet there is no publicly available list of these labs, and the scope of their research and safety records are largely unknown to most state health departments charged with responding to disease outbreaks. Even the federal government doesn't know where they all are, the Government Accountability Office has warned for years.

A team of reporters who work for the USA TODAY Network of Gannett newspapers and TV stations identified more than 200 of these high-containment lab facilities in all 50 states and the District of Columbia operated by government agencies, universities and private companies. They're scattered across the country from the heart of New York City to a valley in Montana; from an area near Seattle's Space Needle to just a few blocks from Kansas City's Country Club Plaza restaurant and shopping district.

IX. The simple fact that USA has been playing with the most deadly bioweapons in the world and plunging the American people into great danger was also discussed in lengthy details in my long research article, with tips listed hereunder.

Connecting the dots: which is the real origin of the global deadly COVID-19 pandemic, China, Italy or USA? What has biotech brought us?
https://www.veteranstoday.com/2021/01/05/connecting-the-dots-which-is-the-real-origin-of-the-global-deadly-covid-19-pandemic-china-italy-or-usa-what-has-biotech-brought-us

[As the possessor of the largest quantity and types of the most dangerous and deadly bacteria, viruses and pathogens in hundreds of bio-chem labs across USA, the US government knows better than anyone else that USA may be hit by self-made deadly bioweapons anytime, or if USA bio-attacks another country, like China or Russia, with deadly viruses, the deadly viruses could return home and cause a deadly epidemic or pandemic. So USA has to get well or fully prepared mainly for bio-attack by self-made deadly viruses, besides the most loudly claimed bioterrorism which has rarely or insignificantly happened.

24. Key evidence part six: USA is the only recorded country launching large-scale bio-chem attacks for its own interest after World War II. No surprise that SARS and COVID-19 are bioweapons originated in USA and that USA may launch more similar bio-attacks in the future if not curbed through international joint efforts.

25. Key evidence part seven: besides the above-mentioned barbarous bio-chem attacks on North Korea, Vietnam and China, USA is also notorious for testing bio-chem weapons on its own citizens!

26. Key evidence part eight: in recent years, there have been deadly mysterious diseases cropping up in USA. Some of them are highly group-targeting. Investigations of these mysterious diseases have yielded no results even till today. Can these be regarded as bioweapon attacks, especially the mysterious respiratory diseases in USA from early July to September which seemed to be just the prototypes of COVID-19 virus?

28. 28 Key evidence ten: some minority scientists already found traces of human manipulation of the COVID-19 virus, pinning more scientifc evidence to the hypothesis/fact that the virus was lab/man-made as a super bioweapon.
(2 more studies added in comments)

31. Regret for the American people, but something really needs to be done through international joint efforts to prevent similar recurrences of the deadly COVID-19 in the future.]

I dont think that a Chinese point of origin can be ruled out based on the evidence you have put forward. The study into the viruses sequenced from the bats in Cambodia details that those bats do not have geographical distribution outside of Cambodia. However, the two other species of bats that were found to harbour viruses closest to s-c-2 found in China, are noted to have geographical distribution overlapping that of the Cambodian bats. This would make a possible scenario that the bats from China migrated into Cambodia and then back into China -at some point carrying a virus formed through recombination during a period of co-habitation.

With that said, none of the viruses discovered & sequenced thus far have shown a high enough sequence match to be pointed to as direct progenitors of s-c-2, which means that the full picture of source to human infection remains incomplete. With the apparant infrequecy of direct bat-human infection, many people consider that an intermediary host was likely to be involved before the jump to humans took place, and there are multiple candidate species who could have played this role. This raises the broader consideration that the virus most probably evolved through decades of viral evolution across multiple national borders, which makes trying to point to any single country as the source of the emergence rather redundant: which animal played the most significant role, and in which territory?

The investigation into the origin of s-c-2 is evidently a complicated one and should be reserved for insight into understanding the threat posed, and prevention of future pandemic-potential outbreaks; it should not form part of an investigation into international culpability; such disucssions should be reserved for policy decisions that took place as the pandemic was unfolding.

Thanks for your comments.

Bats migrate only to escape winter cold, like from Texas, USA to Mexico.

But bats are perpetual inhabiters of a chosen location. if there is no need for migration, bats will live in the chosen location forever.

There seems to be no searchable data to show bats migrate between China's southwest provinces bordering ASEAN countries and ASEAN countries because both are in tropical areas and the temperature in this area in China is relatively lower than in ASEAN countries. As both areas are tropical, there is no need for bats as perpetual inhabiters to migrate back and forth.

In addition, many people, including kids, in ASEAN countries have been eating bats for thousands of years and there is no record of bats causing epidemics or pandemics there.

So, the conclusion still is that bat's natural coronaviruses in whatever natural form do not infect humans and cause epidemics/pandemics.

But now focus seems to be shifting to intermediary hosts. The fact is that there are possible intermediary hosts, like pangolins, in ASEAN countries with a history as long as bats, and there is no record of them causing epdemics/pandemics in ASEAN countries. If the cornaviruses they harbor can really infect people, the ideal and effective area should be tropical, like in ASEAN countries, not in Wuhan in freezing winter of December, 2019.

Scientists have been focusing on the "highly similar" or "nearly identical" genetic sequences between bats' natural coronavirus and COVID-19 virus, but why don't they spare a little time and efforts to look into the same symptoms and the same ground-glass opacity in the lung between COVID-19 and the extremely mysterious and strange vaping/EVALI epidemic breaking out in early July, 2019 in USA, or do they dare to do so?

The geographical distribution of the 3 bat species is detailed in the study that you linked (Jan 2020) and cites a reference for the claim; perhaps this would provide a more detailed insight into the migratory patterns of the bats in question. It is also noted in the former paper that all 3 bats were sampled in the same region, lending credence to the possibility of a period of co-habitation.

Regarding lack of historical instances of coronavirus epidemics; the absence of such does not preclude that it can happen at some point in the future. Indeed, all coronaviruses that are known to infect humans have zoonotic origin. It is only recently that some historical outbreaks of disease are being linked to viruses now endemic in global population. A final note is that the spillover need not have happened from bats to humans or from pangolins to humans in the freezing winter of Wuhan in 2019; rather there may have been multiple spillover events in the lead up to the emergence of the pandemic virus whose epicentre was the Wuhan wet-market.

horseshoe bats harboring coronaviruses more or much more identical to COVID-19 virus/SARS-CoV-2 were recently found in ASEAN countries and Japan.
If it is true please supply the genetic code and research papers. There has been no media coverage

China can be scientifically cleared from the speculation of COVID-19’s natural origin........
The prestigious National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Standing Committee on Covid-19 / NASEM wrote on 6th February 2020 to the US Government

“The experts informed us that additional genomic sequence data from geographically – and temporally – diverse viral samples are needed to determine the origin and evolution of the virus. Samples collected as early as possible in the outbreak in Wuhan and samples from wildlife would be particularly valuable.”

See NASEM Freedom of Information Act correspondence in the link below.

Members of NASEM Standing Committee experts include Peter Daszak who is a member of the WHO and LANCET Covid-19 Investigations and has been criticized as being heavily conflicted in favor of China


This is not about some anti China conspiracy focusing on a Chinese origin of closest discovered Covid-19 viruses RaTG13 found in Yunnan and the 2nd closest ZC45 found in Zhejiang

This is about valuable early genetic data that could help find a cure or better treatment for Covid-19, and the way data is being withheld both in China and the USA on origins and treatments and progress.

The main origins data points currently withheld about Covid-19 are

1. Covid-19 Genetic data from human blood and other samples like sewage for 2019 in China and other countries

2. WIV virus database and genetic codes

3. Research on the RaTG13 and ZC45 viruses

4. Data on natural origins of Covid-19

5. Data on lab origins of Covid-19

6. Medical data on the Mojiang Miners who died in 2012 of an unknown SARS Coronavirus caught in the same Yunnan caves as RaTG13 was found, and the genetic code for the 2012 Miners unknown SARS coronavirus

There appears to be no rational discussion on any of these subjects or on releasing the data.

In fact just the opposite happens the data is not released and false statements are made by Prof Shi in Feb 2020 saying the 2012 Mojiang Miners died of a fungal infection and there was no coronavirus involved.

In Nov 2020 Prof Shi changes the story and says there was an unknown virus involved in the miners deaths and she and others looked for it for many years in and around the same caves that the Mojiang Miners caught the virus but she never found it.

How did she know she could find it unless she had the genetic code of the Mojiang Miners virus from their blood etc samples ?

Was RaTG13 the 2012 Miners virus?

Someone has the data about the 2012 Mojiang Miners virus because part of the medical tests done in 2012 were published in an MA and a Phd on the unknown SARS Coronavirus that killed the Mojiang Miners and were carried out at Prof Shi's WIV in Wuhan 1000 miles away from the Mojiang Miners hospital

Note the Phd was supervised by George Gao the current Head of the Chinese CDC and


We know the 2012 samples existed in 2020 because Prof Shi admitted in Nature in Nov 2020 that the 2012 Mojiang Miners samples were tested in 2020 for Covid-19


So it would be easy to say here is all the data there is nothing to hide look for yourself - but that does not happen.

the whole world has believed that only China has the horseshoe bats that harbor the coronaviruses that have caused SARS and COVID-19 and China is naturally the origin
Well the basis for these beliefs is

SARS

"Prof Shi won international acclaim for her discovery that the illness known as SARS, which killed more than 700 people in 2003, was caused by a virus that probably came from a species of bat in a Yunnan cave".


Covid-19

Many bat colonies around the world have been found with coronaviruses but only in China has RaTG13 been found.

The second closest virus to Covid-19 appears to be ZC45 which was discovered by a Chinese Military Research Lab also comes from China and I am not aware of any other data showing it has been found elsewhere.

See chart below showing best virus matches for Covid-19 = RaTG13 and ZC45

[SARS is also included]



Our phylogenetic reconstruction indicates these are novel bat coronaviruses that belong to the genus Alphacoronavirus. ........are closely related to bat coronaviruses from China, France, Spain, and South Africa, suggesting that co-circulation of coronaviruses is common in multiple bat species with overlapping geographical distributions.
I dont intend to say much on this you can read it in my other posts on this.

Bat "Alpha" Coronaviruses basically cannot infect humans.

You will see in Professor Shi's 2016 paper where she identifies RaTG13 as a rare pandemic potential highly human SARS linked Bat "Beta" Coronavirus she also refers also to around 100+ Bat "Alpha" Coronaviruses discovered at the same time as RaTG13.

It is clear Alpha Coronaviruses are of no interest to Prof Shi as a possible human infectious viruses.

What is never discussed is why Prof Shi whose main purpose in work is to find Human Pandemic Potential viruses did no research on RaTG13 for seven years even though she highlighted its human pandemic potential in published work in 2016.

I still insist that human manipulation of bats' natural coronaviruses “identical” or "nearly identical"to SASR/COVID-19......... at least a 90% chance
US Military source of Covid-19

With regards to the points you raise about US Government sponsored research into viral gain of function and genetic manipulation research.

Everything you say about the USA developing Covid-19 as a bio weapon could also be applied to China.

It is possible that such work did happen in a Chinese lab. We know these Chinese labs have worked on SARS viruses because they escaped and infected people.

We know that Prof Shi has combined genetic manipulation and gain of function work in WIV and has published papers on it.

I do not know of Chinese researchers who have raised concerns about viral gain of function research etc being done in China. The CCP stops most criticism of state sponsored activities

However it is well known that many researchers around the world have objected to this gain of function and genetic manipulation research.

China has been very active in researching various genetic manipulation processes including gene editing and gain of function research and has worked with France, US, Australia and other countries to develop its capabilities.

China continued gain of function research even after it was banned for a number of years in the USA [2014-2017], and the Chinese Military have been actively involved in this field for many years. For example bat coronaviruses ZC45 and ZXC21 were discovered between July 2015 and February 2017 and isolated and gene sequenced by military research laboratories in China and quite close to Covid-19 genetically


This does not mean that Covid-19 was "made in China" however it does show military lab interest in Bat Coronavirus research and certainly includes China as a serious candidate for such work.

All the claims you make about unsafe US military research facilities could also be said about China.

Here are some comments made on the Covid-19 subject most could also apply to both the USA and China.

The differences are there is no public criticism of the gain of function work in China and lots of disinformation from both US and Chinese parties saying there was no way lab research followed by an escape event could happen in China.

All this is very strange

Comments
  1. The Lancet Letter appearing supporting Prof Shi and the WIV, and seeming like a transparent disinformation campaign coordinated and created by scientists who were looking to preserve their gain-of-function research funding by creating the illusion of consensus.
  2. COVID-19's very early reported ability to bind to human cells some 10 to 20 times more tightly than SARS.
  3. The fact that engineering a virus to make it more transmissible by definition makes it more likely that it'll leak out of a lab.
  4. A long history of viral lab leaks around the globe including 2 pandemics
  5. Personnel with the exact academic, technical, and laboratory backgrounds to carry out the precise sort of spike-protein manipulation experience that could explain everything unique about the novel coronavirus's genome working at the WIV.
  6. The CCP reacting pretty much exactly like the communists did during the 2002/3 SARS outbreak and other difficult situations
We know SARS viruses have been researched in China and escaped from labs and killed people. This happened in other countries as well.

We know that at least 2 other world pandemics started with old viruses escaping from labs. That was in the days before gene manipulation and advanced gain of function techniques which means more human infectious diseases viruses exist now than before.

The WHO Covid-19 Investigation seems deeply flawed as the one set of data tests that have not been discussed as reviewed over 2019 is on human blood and other samples.

It is pretty appalling not to have done these human sample reviews both for Covid-19band other viruses and then to conclude based just on interviews there is no evidence of a lab release of Covid-19. This is not scientific

If WIV knew about a lab source it seems unlikely they would suddenly now say oh it was us but we dont know how the virus got out

However it gets worse after testing 10,000s of thousand of animals and 2019 animal samples for Covid-19 the WHO concludes

"Our initial findings suggest that the introduction through an intermediary host species is the most likely pathway"

There are no genetic markers showing this in humans, animals or the Covid-19 virus itself, linking it to other animals, and the tests should be for a similar SARS virus not just for Covid-19.

If there was an intermediate host it is unlikely to have been hosting human Covid-19 but a precursor

WHO evaluated four hypotheses:

1. a direct jump from animal to human,
2. an introduction to humans via an intermediate host,
3. the virus arriving in Wuhan via frozen food products and
4. a lab-related incident

The only one that seems totally unlikely is the frozen food one otherwise we would be seeing Covid-19 in Taiwan and New Zealand who both import frozen food and are Covid free.

1 and 2 seem less likely as the Chinese admit they have done lots of animal testing and looking at historic blood samples but even this testing looks suspect

I find it hard to believe that the Chinese did not also perform a more generic SARS virus test in animals rather than a specific Covid-19 test to look for a precursor virus but the quotes say negative for SARS-CoV-2.

If generic SARS testing was done with no positive match then it makes an intermediate host or direct jump less likely so that leaves a lab origin.

You believe a US lab origin is the source. If we just accept that a lab origin could be the source research into the data should indicate more.

A good starting point would be the release of all the Chinese Coronavirus data probably mostly at WIV and all US cironavirus data

Animal tests
  • "Sampling of bats in Hubei province has failed to find evidence of SARS-CoV-2 in native viruses, and sampling of wildlife in different places in China has so far failed to identify the presence of SARS-CoV-2," said Liang.
  • 11,000 samples from different kinds of animals like "pig, cow, goat, chicken, duck and goose" from 31 provinces in China across 2019 and 2020 and all were negative for SARS-CoV-2.
  • 1,914 serum samples from 45 different species of wild animals, collected between November 2019 and March 2020, were all negative for SARS-CoV-2.
  • 50,000 samples of wild animals covering 300 different species were tested via PCR and all tested negative for SARS-CoV-2



There has been a lot of carelessness in investigating, or a deliberate non investigation, of events, data and evidence related to Covid-19.

A simple example is the registration of RaTG13 the closest registered virus found to date to Covid-19.

It was first registered on 24 July 2013 as BtCov4991 and then re-registered in March 2020 by Prof Shi.


Prof Shi who discovered BtCov4991/RaTG13 always said it was discovered via fecal swabs from Bats in caves 1000 miles from Wuhan.

The record shows RaTG13 was first registered as obtained "from bronchoalveolar lavage fluid" this was later changed to "fecal swab".

Please review the historic web archive captured data showing these changes of RaTG13 to fecal swab in the links below.

Also note the 1st and 4th links references to Prof Shi, dates of 22nd and 30th January 2020 and also to "bronchoalveolar lavage" to obtain the sample are the same pages for June and September 2020.

All the links are from snapshots in June and September 2020. The 3rd link from September 2020 says fecal swab the 2nd link from June 2020 is of the same page as the 3rd link but says "bronchoalveolar lavage"

I do not believe this extensive web archive data could be faked as you can click on many active links within the archive. I expect some will say this was human error entry.

Note bronchoalveolar lavage fluid would be obtained from a humans or lab animals and is a relatively complex process requiring fast lab testing after collection.


The miners who died in 2012 of an unknown SARS coronavirus, that their Dr set out in an MA thesis came from bats in the same cave as RaTG13 was found, did have samples of blood and tissue taken including organs/glands removed. It is likely they also had "bronchoalveolar lavages" to obtain genetic material.

We known the 2012 miners samples were taken to Prof Shi's Institute in Wuhan in over 1000 miles away from their hospital for testing. This is confirmed by Professor Shi and in the various MA and Phd work and research papers previously obtained and now deleted from Chinese research web sites. The full medical records have been with held but partly quoted with data supplied in the MA and Phd

The reason the early genetic material of any virus including Covid-19 is important has been well understood for many years.

NASEM Standing Committee on Covid-19 letter confirmed the importance of the earliest genetic material. The NASEM experts included Peter Daszak and Professor Ralph Baric who have known or worked closely with Professor Shi, the Wuhan Institute of Virology etc, for up to 15 years and have led the campaigns against a lab origin of Covid-19. So this is not some anti Chinese group.
