    Default Covid Origins: Closest Viruses To Sars- Cov-2 Found In Laos

    • Numerous theories exist around the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, but none has yet been proven.
    • Parts of the genome of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are so unusual that it has given rise to conspiracy theories that the virus must have been developed in a lab.
    • Researchers have now discovered in bats living in caves in Laos strains of viruses so similar to SARS-CoV-2 that they believe they could infect humans.
    • This discovery could prove the natural origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and that direct bat-to-human transmission of the virus is a possible cause of the pandemic.

    Since SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, was first detected in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, there have been global efforts to determine its origins.

    That's very persuasive. What continues to disturb me is the number of systems and organs in the human being that the virus is able to impact; it even crosses the blood brain barrier. Perhaps it wouldn't take much modification of one of those three bat viruses to make it increasingly weaponized. I don't mean to promote a conspiracy theory; I'm just exploring some of the many possible options.
