Or not....?

Gain of function creation..
Or from people eating...bats...?


Personaly...
I think it is a man made weaponised virus...

Escaped or released....I dunno...

What is your opinion..?

Place me firmly in the "I dunno camp,"  but with the jiggery-pokery displayed by leadership [both medical and non-], at this point there's not a whole lot that would surprise me.   About a year and a half ago I had the screwy notion that it will all come out in the wash.... about 10 or 20 years down the road when some investigative reporter or student working on a doctoral thesis puts two and two together.  So far I don't see much to lead me to change my prognosis. 

How's that ^^ for a wishy-washy "opinion"?   wink

I’m not sure. I’d guess it’s probably not man made.

I never believed the wet market origin theory... I actually didn’t realise people had been serious about that theory until the idea that it had come out of the Coronavirus research lab in Wuhan really started to take off. I mean I never realised that wasn’t the main theory all along... it’s not exactly Enigma.

I’d guess a careless lab leak that got out of hand.

It's man made, and weaponized. And definitely not as widespread as they want us to think!

We have been over this. It isn’t man made, the genetic sequence of the virus has been known for over a year. It is similar to SARS 1, it began as a bat corona virus , probably mutated through another mammal, then when the flesh of contaminated animals was eaten in the Wuhan wet market , the virus mutated again , jumped species as viruses often do and became Sars2 . It has since mutated into a number of variations or strains including the delta strain that is wreaking havoc among the unvaccinated. There is a plausible theory that the bat version of the virus was being studied at the Wuhan lab and that contaminated monkey meat  or pangolin meat was smuggled out of the lab and sold at the Wuhan wet market instead of being destroyed  . This is how the virus “ leaked” out , although saying it leaked leads folks to believe it was set out on purpose. Either way, the virus is a naturally evolved organism, period.

It's not man made. It's either divine punishment, or the planet using it's only defense for an over-populated, over-poluted, over-abused planet. I'm not religious, so I think it's probably #2.

Yes! It's a PLANdemic and fear tactics. Do your best to ignore what of it you can!

There is zero evidence that is what happened other than the Chinese Communist Party who can just about never be believed.  There is growing evidence that the virus probably escaped from the lab, possibly because of some workers there who contracted it.  I would be willing to bet that our intelligence services know pretty much how it was developed and got out ...... or quoting a former politician "if not, they should change their name"!

It’s more likely that the Chinese government doesn’t have a clue as to how or if the virus escaped the lab, neither does our intelligence agency , the virus went from monkey to pangolin before mutating to human so it’s more likely the virus was eaten or spread throughout the market for a while before mutating into its current form. At this point, it doesn’t really matter, except as a lesson about eating exotic animals, which we should have learned from previous virus outbreaks. Also China maybe more capitalist then communist at this point, perhaps more capitalist then the USA,

Geez, Tommy, you let the air out of the balloon for a bunch of people who want to blame those dirty commies for trying to kill us with that virus. Commies in cahoots with those evil American Marxists.

My take on this is: I don't know. Maybe nobody knows. Possibly somebody knows but they aren't going to tell us (and definitely not on a banjo forum). But none of this has any relevance to what we currently do about it. It doesn't come into a decision about whether to get vaccinated, wear masks in enclosed spaces or isolate if infected.

Up the tracks it would be useful to know exactly how it happened to help us avoid it happening again (and Ockham's razor suggests a naturally occurring virus modified through inter-species infection - just like all of the many and regular similar epidemics in the past) so it really isn't useful to make the primary focus unlikely origin theories that just happen to suit a political agenda.

I needed to read no further than the title. Political from the get-go, and locked.
