According to several Chinese scientists who conducted a new study, the newly spread coronavirus did not have its origins at a seafood market in the city of Wuhan in central China as many experts initially surmised.
The South China Morning Post reported that this virus has produced a death toll of more than 2,400 people.
Instead, the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was apparently imported from elsewhere, claimed researchers at the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden under the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Institute for Brain Research.
Dr Yu Wenbin is the leader of the team who sequenced the genomic data of 93 SARS-CoV-2 samples that 12 countries provided in an effort to find the source of the infection and understand how it is spreading.
What they discovered was that although the virus spread rapidly within the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan, there were also two significant population expansions on December 8 and January 6.
According to the study, which was released on the institute’s website last Thursday, the analysis indicated that the coronavirus originated from outside the market.
“The crowded market then boosted SARS-CoV-2 circulation and spread it to the whole city in early December 2019,” it contended.
Previous reports coming from Chinese health authorities and the World Health Organisation highlighted that the first known patient demonstrated symptoms on December 8, and that most of the cases that followed had ties to the seafood market, which shut its doors on January 1.
The research team then sustained that it was possible that the virus initially spread from person to person in early December or even as early as the end of November based on the genome data they were working with.
“The study concerning whether Huanan market is the only birthplace of SARS-CoV-2 is of great significance for finding its source and determining the intermediate host, so as to control the epidemic and prevent it from spreading again,” the research team noted.
The scientists also noted that although China’s National Centre for Disease Control and Prevention announced a Level 2 emergency warning about the rapidly spreading coronavirus on January 6, the information was not widely disseminated.
“If the warning had attracted more attention, the number of cases both nationally and globally in mid-to-late January would have been reduced,” they said.
In the meantime, Xiang Nijuan, a researcher at the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, revealed in an interview with state broadcaster CCTV on Saturday January 22, 2020 that people who were infected with the coronavirus were contagious two days before showing any symptoms.
In his view, anyone who had been in close to someone within 48 hours of them being confirmed as being infected by the virus should isolate themselves for 14 days.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
