A terrible corona virus pandemic is destroying the world economy, stock markets crash, people are dying first in tiny numbers then the death toll explodes.
Today's news? No - Welcome to Event2O1 which was held in October 2019. In November, only the next month, just "coincidentally", according to genetic analysis, the original Wuhan Flu begins to spread.
Nature seems to just by "coincidence" create exact, identical, genetic sequence inserts from HIV (cause of AIDS), in a corona virus that's totally unrelated to HIV. Those who pretend that completely different viruses - different species of viruses at that - from India, Kenya, and the USA flew to China to have sexy fun times with the SARS corona virus (which is not even the same species). This rather like claiming that 4 rabbits from countries thousands of kilometres away from each other decided to have an orgy with a buffalo in China.
The above research paper from a team of Indian scientists was forced by political pressure to be retracted when President Trump visited India. (Not saying Trump was involved at all, by the way, but the timing implies that the Indian government didn't want such inconvenient data more widely known).
A very curious virus that's astonishingly unique, and whose "relatives" in bats were only "coincidentally" recently discovered.
Which is more fascinating still because it was published in Nature (the world's oldest and most respected peer reviewed scientific journal) that a team of scientists deliberately engineered a SARS virus corona virus from bats - to be more infectious in humans. I AM NOT KIDDING!
The Wuhan Flu is unstable, rapidly mutating, dividing into multiple strains already
That's a problem with viruses. Out in the wild, unlike those studied in a lab, out in the natural world viruses will mutate, they change, they become quickly uncontrolled and turn into something unintended and perhaps more frightening and dangerous and a lot more worrying.
