I do not for a second believe that SARS-CoV-2 is a bioweapon but that’s an idea I do not believe will be allowed to die. This morning I saw this study from Australia being cited as proof positive that it was, indeed, engineered in a Chinese lab.
I found the cited study interesting and informative and even suggestive but I still don’t think it proves the virus was intended as a weapon.
However, consider this. If the Chinese authorities had intended to conduct a probing attack, they could hardly have done better than SARS-CoV-2. We have revealed all of our weaknesses and weakened ourselves tremendously in the process.
