New Report Suggests a Different Chinese Government Cover-Up on Covid-19 Origins (slashdot)

How replication and recombination contribute to emergence of SARS-CoV-2 variants

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has been caused by the rapid outbreak of a novel coronavirus, namely, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2 was first reported in late December 2019 in Wuhan, China. Since then, the virus has already claimed more than 4.3 million lives worldwide.

Wuhan, China to test entire population for COVID-19

China (MNN) — COVID-19 has returned to Wuhan, China. This city became the first to see a large COVID-19 outbreak in late 2019. In response, Wuhan will test all 10 million residents for the Delta Variant. This reflects China’s zero-tolerance policy towards COVID-19. Erik Burklin of China Partner says, “In China, they take this virus a little bit more serious than here in the western part of the world. The overall total numbers of positive cases are so minute compared to the rest of the populat...

SARS-CoV-2 proteins manipulate autophagy

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) has claimed more than 4.1 million lives worldwide. This pandemic is caused by a novel single-stranded RNA virus, namely, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that was first reported in 2019 in Wuhan, China. The rapid spread of this virus is attributed to its high infectiousness and its ability to escape and counteract host immune responses, e.g., autophagy.

Could new strains of COVID evolve in farm animals or pets?

It appears no one is safe from severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Given that SARS-CoV-2 likely developed in bats and later transmitted to humans in Wuhan, China, there has been concern over animals infecting humans. But more evidence has shown that humans are more likely to infect animals — from hamsters, gorillas to the domestic cat.

How the lab leak hypothesis reaffirms the merits of free speech

“If all of mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind… [Because the opinion] may possibly be true.” This is one of the central arguments on the importance of free speech from philosopher John Stuart Mill’s famous essay, “On Liberty,” and it is just as relevant in 21st-century America as it was in 19th-century England....

Longitudinal study finds SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibodies decline a year after infection

Research led by Xin Zheng of Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China, found that about 90% of patients who recovered from COVID-19 continued to have IgG antibodies targeting the N-domain and receptor-binding domain of the spike protein. However, approximately 43% of patients showed signs of neutralizing antibody activity.
