Chinese Scientists Claim that Coronavirus Did Not Originate in Seafood Market

Published

on

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.

BLP previously reported that this outbreak came about years after a “controversial facility would be opened in Wuhan where Chinese scientists would study the world’s most dangerous pathogens.”

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
