Scientists Discover Genetic Material Suggesting COVID Came From Chinese Lab; Lab Leak Breakthrough? DNA Researchers May Have Found the Bioengineered 'Ancestor' to COVID, and other C-Virus related stories

Scientists Discover Genetic Material Suggesting COVID Came From Chinese Lab:
Scientists in Hungary examining a unique variant of COVID-19 have discovered genetic material that suggests the strain was being examined in a Chinese lab, bolstering the lab leak theory.
The researchers “found traces of a unique variant of coronavirus while examining DNA from soil from Antarctica that had been sent to the firm Sangon Biotech in Shanghai,” reports the Daily Mail.
Genetic material from Chinese hamsters and green monkeys was also discovered, “which may suggest the virus was being examined in a lab, using either the animals themselves or their cells,” according to the report.
Viscount Ridley said that such evidence bolsters the theory that the virus accidentally escaped or was leaked from the Wuhan lab deliberately.
The presence of “three key [COVID] mutations” is characteristic of the early sequences of the virus, according to Ridley.
The discovery contradicts claims that the virus jumped from animals to humans naturally. --->READ MORE HERE

Lab Leak Breakthrough? DNA Researchers May Have Found the Bioengineered 'Ancestor' to COVID:
New information has emerged that could buttress the theory that the coronavirus that has ravaged the globe for two years had its roots in a Chinese laboratory.
Ever since the outbreak of the coronavirus, two main theories have emerged about its origin in Wuhan, China.
One school of thought says this was a naturally occurring virus that jumped from animals to humans in a way that no one has yet established.
The other theory is that the virus — possibly manipulated by researchers — escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, with most who believe the lab leak theory assuming the release to be accidental.
White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci initially derided the lab leak theory but later admitted it was possible. Fauci is linked to the Wuhan lab through research grants to scientists studying viruses, including coronaviruses.
The Daily Mail reported Thursday that the lab leak theory “was given fresh momentum” by research published this week.
Hungarian researchers whose samples of soil from Antarctica were processed by a facility in Shangai reported they were contaminated with coronavirus mutations that in late 2018 and early 2019 were totally unknown to the wider world. --->READ MORE HERE
