Coronavirus may have lain dormant across the world and emerged when environmental conditions were right for it to thrive - rather than starting in China, an Oxford University expert believes.

Dr Tom Jefferson, senior associate tutor at the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM), at Oxford, and visiting professor at Newcastle University, argues that there is growing evidence that the virus was elsewhere before it emerged in Asia.

Last week, Spanish virologists announced they had found traces of the disease in samples of waste water collected in March 2019, nine months before the coronavirus disease was seen in China.

Italian scientists have also found evidence of coronavirus in sewage samples in Milan and Turin, in mid-December, many weeks before the first case was detected, while experts have found traces in Brazil in November.

Dr Jefferson believes that many viruses lie dormant throughout the globe and emerge when conditions are favourable. It also means they can vanish as quickly as they arrive.

"Where did Sars 1 go? It’s just disappeared," he said "So we have to think about these things. We need to start researching the ecology of the virus, understanding how it originates and mutates.

"I think the virus was already here, here meaning everywhere. We may be seeing a dormant virus that has been activated by environmental conditions.

It looks like China may be off the hook.

Assholes being assholes

It's genetics

They believe and regurgitate the dumbest of the dumbest narratives

They are truly special

It’s a joke that this isn’t being discussed.
Do you know how large China is?
They put up a new super bio lab in Wuhan (pop 11 million)
Virus pops up in Wuhan.
Oh.
Let’s blame Trump.

Joe Biden's team shut down a State Department investigation into the Wuhan laboratory as a source of the COVID-19 outbreak, CNN reported on Tuesday night.
The existence of the investigation, run primarily out of the State Department's arms control and verification bureau, had not been previously known - nor had the Biden administration's actions.
The revelations will lead to uncomfortable allegations for Biden that his team politicized the public health effort, and harmed the nation by shutting down a useful inquiry begun by his predecessor.
The theory of a lab leak had been promoted heavily by Donald Trump, who blamed China for unleashing COVID-19 on the world. Critics said that Trump was blaming China to distract from his own mishandling of the pandemic.

I got covid in December and you can't fucking tell me this virus wasn't created in a lab. It was unlike any other illness I ever had. My case was mild as can be, I only had a fever for a few hours and never lost my sense of taste. While I was in quarantine for two fucking weeks, I was able to watch college football and drink beer while I had Covid. Fuck the chinks. This virus was released by them either intentionally or through gross negligence.
