The research team from Australia has developed a new theory of the origin COVID-19. The team, headed by Nikolai Petrovsky, Professor of medicine of Flinders University, suggested that SARS-CoV-2 was probably genetically engineered, which led to the fact that the virus naturally evolving animals gained the ability to attach to human cells.
The team does not agree with the view that the new coronavirus appeared on the infamous seafood market in Wuhan and naturally transferred to the person. According to scientists, the coronavirus has been specially optimized in order to attack human cells, and the disease had been created artificially. As stated in the study, is either “an incredible coincidence or a sign of human intervention”.
However, a study of Nikolai Petrovsky has not yet passed peer review, therefore his findings cannot be considered definitive. The study has been published on the website of Cornell University with a note that they will not be considered “established information”, yet their opinion did not Express experts.
LifeSiteNews in an exclusive report reports that a team of the Petrovsky used samples of the virus collected in the first days of the outbreak, and using computer models to test its ability to interact with АПФ2 angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE2), which allow the virus with different degrees of efficiency to infect human cells and animals.
The team noticed that the new coronavirus can best interact with the human АПФ2, so the researchers suggested that the virus was manufactured in a laboratory so that he was able to penetrate into human cells.
“The best virus interacts with the receptor of its original host species, for example, a bat, and worse interacts with the receptor of any new host, e.g., human. However, in this case SARS-CoV-2 interacts with humans is better than with the alleged original and the host: bats or any potential intermediate types-owners,” the study notes.
According to Professor Petrovsky, pronounced in an e-mail with LifeSite, it indicates that human intervention at some point in the evolution Covid-19.
“The possibility that still cannot be ruled out, is that SARSCoV-2 was created as a result of recombination, which intentionally or unintentionally produced in the lab studies the coronaviruses, and then a new virus accidentally infected the local population.”
Dr. Petrovsky said that there are indications that the virus was “cultured” to gradually evolve, rather quickly built and genetically mutate.
“This is usually easily recognizable and, therefore, are clear signs of human intervention in the creation of the virus. The fact that these artificial inserts are missing, have been interpreted by some as that this virus is not the result of human manipulation,” – said Peter.
