The Origin of Covid-19
I know a lot of people have been digging into this subject. I looked into this subject months ago and, to say the least, the fact that no one has been able to identify the origin of covid-19 raises more questions than any other details surrounding that virus. The first details I found explained how scientists and doctors have been able to identify the origin or source of viruses since the late 1400’s.
References to influenza infections date from the late 15th and early 16th centuries, but infections almost certainly occurred long before then. In 1173, an epidemic occurred that was possibly the first in Europe, and in 1493, an outbreak of what is now thought to be swine influenza, struck Native Americans in Hispaniola. There is some evidence to suggest that the source of the infection was pigs on Columbus’s ships.
Now the question begs to be asked, if scientists were able to identify pigs as the origin of the flu virus in 1493, why can’t scientists identify the source of covid-19 in 2020? Or is there a reason why the origin of covid-19 has not been released to the public? Which draws us into a series of rabbit holes. The deep dark labyrinth of no return where souls are lost for an eternity.
Billions of people want to know where and how covid-19 originated. Those billions of people are taxpayers. Who is funding all this research? Who is funding the trillions of dollars covid-19 has sucked up in funds? Who is suffering under the hyper inflation directly related to covid-19? The people. And the people all over the world deserve an answer. Now name one media outlet or one politician anywhere in the world who is working to provide that simple answer. If doctors and scientists could identify the source of a virus in 1493, how come scientists with all the equipment and almost unlimited funds today can’t answer a simple question?
We can and will look at each of the simple explanations one at a time in somewhat of an unbiased manner in their prospective chapters in this book. Much of the information is from legitimate government sources. Some information was gathered from biased media websites that, of course, need to be considered with a grain of salt, so to speak. Which when examined, brings up an array of new questions to be considered.
The three main sources center on origins of flu viruses spread by birds, pigs, and bats. Each of which will be examined in later chapters in this book. The main focus will concentrate on reports published by leading scientists of our day. Sprinkled in will be stories from media outlets with their attempts at presenting news to sway your opinion. I have to warn you, looking at the evidence from a collection of sources can seem daunting and confusing. Be prepared to collect your own material and look deeper into each subject. Gather the facts with an open mind. And most of all, demand answers from the people you are paying to represent you and who are supposed to be looking out for your best interests. When we look at the funds involved with covid-19, we have to admit that if something needs to be covered up, they have the ability to bury it under tons of money. Finding enough honest people with the ability to serve the general public will be a daunting task. The first step will never be taken if the general public does not unite and demand answers.
One of the first explanations as to the origin of covid-19 was bats. One unbiased explanation appears to make the most sense.

Genomic characterisation and epidemiology of 2019 novel coronavirus: implications for virus origins and receptor binding
However, despite the importance of bats, several facts suggest that another animal is acting as an intermediate host between bats and humans. First, the outbreak was first reported in late December, 2019, when most bat species in Wuhan are hibernating. Second, no bats were sold or found at the Huanan seafood market, whereas various non-aquatic animals (including mammals) were available for purchase. Third, the sequence identity between 2019-nCoV and its close relatives bat-SL-CoVZC45 and bat-SL-CoVZXC21 was less than 90%, which is reflected in the relatively long branch between them. Hence, bat-SL-CoVZC45 and bat-SL-CoVZXC21 are not direct ancestors of 2019-nCoV. Fourth, in both SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, bats acted as the natural reservoir, with another animal (masked palm civet for SARS-CoV35 and dromedary camels for MERS-CoV)36 acting as an intermediate host, with humans as terminal hosts. Therefore, on the basis of current data, it seems likely that the 2019-nCoV causing the Wuhan outbreak might also be initially hosted by bats, and might have been transmitted to humans via currently unknown wild animal(s) sold at the Huanan seafood market.
As we can see. We look at the prospect of one source and we see an explanation the normal person can understand. Bats were hibernating. Which basically rules out the probability that bats were the origin of covid-19. As the explanation progresses, the author tends to lose the majority of his audience. As soon as scientists get into their world, they lose the majority of the world. Which makes digging for answers that much more difficult. Sure, we have scientists with a conscience and dedicated to unbiased research. But their explanations seem to be from a different world. In a sense they are. But when we collect enough data and learn a few basic scientific terms, details come together in a language we can understand. Of course, we see, the more scientists dig into the subject, the more questions they have. I guess we can find a measure of trust and security when we read reports from scientists who are not afraid to admit they do not have all the answers.
Birds are another source mentioned in the news and in a number of reports from leading scientists. But there is a problem with the bird flu theory. The normal bird flu virus is not able to survive in the human body because of the lower temperature.

Human Nose Too Cold For Bird Flu, Says New Study
Today’s study shows that normal avian influenza viruses do not spread extensively in cells at 32 degrees Celsius, the temperature inside the human nose. The researchers say this is probably because the viruses usually infect the guts of birds, which are warmer, at 40 degrees Celsius. This means that avian flu viruses that have not mutated are less likely to infect people, because the first site of infection in humans is usually the nose. If a normal avian flu virus infected a human nose, the virus would not be able to grow and spread between cells, so it would be less likely to damage cells and cause respiratory illness.
We get a glimpse of how detailed those studies on flu viruses have been over the years. One detail to pay attention to is the dates, which will help us piece this story together in a manner most people will be able to understand. After gathering data, we also need to rewrite the facts in a way we and most people will be able to understand.
Since we are on the subject of bird flu, there is one more aspect we need to consider. In simple terms, common everyday bird flu cannot, or at the very least, has a difficult time infecting humans. The body temperature barrier is something easy to understand and accept. But when your income relies on the worst case scenario and you need funding, what would you do? Bird flu is connected to stories about people who work and live within the world of viruses and in their minds, developing new viruses is what they do to make a living.

By Anthony S. Fauci
A deadly influenza virus has circulated widely in birds in recent years, decimating flocks, but rarely spreading to humans. Nonetheless, because of its persistence in bird flocks, this highly pathogenic avian influenza virus has loomed as a major public health threat. Seasonal influenza kills less than 1 percent of the people it infects. In contrast, human infections with H5N1, though exceedingly rare, are fatal in more than half of cases. Should this virus mutate in a way that allows it to be transmitted as efficiently among people as seasonal influenza viruses are, it could take an unprecedented toll on human life.
A number of important scientific and public health questions regarding this virus remain unanswered, including the likelihood of such mutations arising and the mechanisms by which they may occur. Two recent studies co-funded by the National Institutes of Health have shed light on how this potentially grave human health threat could become a reality. Working carefully with influenza viruses they have engineered in isolated biocontainment laboratories, scientists in Europe and the United States have identified several mechanisms by which the virus might evolve to transmit efficiently in the ferret, the best animal model for human influenza infection.
Given these uncertainties, important information and insights can come from generating a potentially dangerous virus in the laboratory.
The question is whether benefits of such research outweigh risks. The answer is not simple. A highly pathogenic bird flu virus transmissible in humans could arise in ways not predicted by laboratory studies. And it is not clear whether this laboratory virus would behave in humans as it does in ferrets. Nonetheless, new data provide valuable insights that can inform influenza preparedness and help delineate the principles of virus transmission between species.
It doesn’t take long to introduce some of the main characters entangled in the covid-19 story and their motives. As we begin to establish a timeline we see motives emerge. In 2009 studies showed that the common bird flu was unable to survive in human bodies because of the lower temperature. We also see that the bird flu is a dangerous virus capable of killing birds and, if it were able to jump to humans, could prove to be deadly. At least that was Dr. Fauci’s thinking in 2011 when he wrote a paper designed to secure funding for research. The question looms. Did Dr. Fauci have the concerns and welfare of the general public in mind, or was funding his major concern? We will examine those aspects in later chapters. The important fact to consider here is, in the normal course of evolution, the common bird flu posed no threat to humans. Then the question lingers. Was a super virus developed in the laboratory and released to the general public?
We have little to compare germ warfare to except for the atomic bomb. Remember, leading scientists working on atomic energy saw atomic energy as an answer to a reliable and safe source of energy. There were, of course, divisions in the science of atomic energy. Scientists who truly had the right intentions, and scientists who only viewed atomic energy as the ultimate source of power and control. Those are the cold hard facts we refer to as human nature. The two sides we need to consider to get that unbiased view of covid-19.
When we consider the development of atomic energy, where were the majority of funds and research committed? To weapons of mass destruction of course. Did scientists stop at equations and theories? Of course not. Hundreds of tests were conducted all over the world with first atomic then hydrogen bombs. Research is still being conducted to invent the perfect killing machine. Do you think for one moment virus research is immune to human passions, greed, and world conquest?
Are we about to take the word of one man that funding for virus research is limited to securing a bright future for humanity? Does anyone really believe governments funding virus research have the best interests of humanity at heart.
When we look into bird flu, we will find connections the average person didn’t think existed. We will uncover evidence we all know exists, but when we put it together appears stranger than science fiction. Both sides of the media and political spectrum agree, spending on virus research has jumped from a few hundred thousand to millions and then to trillions of dollars in a short amount of time. With that money comes greed. Which is a common human entity we need to consider, along with the quest for power and world domination. Also, the aspect of defense. Which is a nice term governments use to develop and stockpile weapons of mass destruction. A smoke screen. In the long run, who is paying for this and what is their motive? In reality, common, everyday people are the ones funding this research. The people who deserve an honest answer. The question is, who can we trust?
The third source of the virus has been identified as pigs, commonly known as the swine flu. We’ve seen how the swine flu has been around a long time. Vaccines for the swine flu have also been around for a long time. Looking into the history of vaccines, doctors and scientists had an idea. If they took pins and infected those pins with a small amount to cells from infected pigs or persons, and stuck those needles into healthy people, that tiny amount of virus would be defeated by the natural immune system. It was a concept that for the most part worked. The vaccine industry was born long before it was fully understood. Long before the first virus was viewed under a microscope.
One of the things scientists understood in the earliest research into vaccines was if the origin was identified, the right vaccine could be developed and used to save lives. If the wrong origin was used for a vaccine, the results were catastrophic. Not only was the body fighting off an airborne virus, injecting a second virus from the wrong source always resulted in fatalities. The wrong source always made matters worse. Today, leading scientists insist that the origin of covid-19 is a mystery. But that did not stop the development of a host of vaccines. Vaccines with sometimes beneficial results and others with untold complications. Something is up, and for the most part, it seems that the media, government, and science prefer to keep the general public in the dark. We will cover vaccines, their history, benefits, and dangers in another chapter.
The probability of swine flu leading to this new covid-19 and its variants is slim to say the least. Although the world has seen breakouts of swine flu for more than 500 years, the facts are not inline with covid-19.
19 January 2022
Swine influenza is an infection caused by any of several types of swine influenza viruses. Swine influenza virus (SIV) or swine-origin influenza virus (S-OIV) is any strain of the influenza family of viruses that is endemic in pigs. As of 2009, the known SIV strains include influenza C and the subtypes of influenza A known as H1N1, H1N2, H2N1, H3N1, H3N2, and H2N3.
Swine influenza virus is common throughout pig populations worldwide. Transmission of the virus from pigs to humans is not common and does not always lead to human flu, often resulting only in the production of antibodies in the blood. If transmission causes human flu, it is called zoonotic swine flu. People with regular exposure to pigs are at increased risk of swine flu infection.
Direct transmission of a swine flu virus from pigs to humans is occasionally possible (zoonotic swine flu). In all, 50 cases are known to have occurred since the first report in medical literature in 1958, which have resulted in a total of six deaths. Of these six people, one was pregnant, one had leukemia, one had Hodgkin’s lymphoma and two were known to be previously healthy. One of these had unknown whereabouts. Despite these apparently low numbers of infections, the true rate of infection may be higher, since most cases only cause a very mild disease, and will probably never be reported or diagnosed.
In this video, Dr. Joe Bresee, with CDC’s Influenza Division, describes the symptoms of swine flu and warning signs to look for that indicate the need for urgent medical attention.
According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in humans the symptoms of the 2009 “swine flu” H1N1 virus are similar to influenza and influenza-like illness in general. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, watery eyes, body aches, shortness of breath, headache, weight loss, chills, sneezing, runny nose, coughing, dizziness, abdominal pain, lack of appetite, and fatigue. The 2009 outbreak showed an increased percentage of patients reporting diarrhea and vomiting as well. The 2009 H1N1 virus is not zoonotic swine flu, as it is not transmitted from pigs to humans, but from person to person through airborne droplets.
Based on reports and studies, the swine flu is rare in humans and seldom fatal. So covid-19 most likely is not related to common swine flu. For the time being, we need to learn a few scientific terms assigned to viruses. H1N1 is the designation for what we term swine flu. That branches into a number of other sub-viruses, H1N1, H1N2, H2N1, H3N1, H3N2, and H2N3. Then we have that bird flu and its designations.

Influenza A virus subtype H5N1
Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 (A/H5N1) is a subtype of the influenza A virus which can cause illness in humans and many other animal species. A bird-adapted strain of H5N1, called HPAI A(H5N1) for highly pathogenic avian influenza virus of type A of subtype H5N1, is the highly pathogenic causative agent of H5N1 flu, commonly known as avian influenza (“bird flu”). It is enzootic (maintained in the population) in many bird populations, especially in Southeast Asia. One strain of HPAI A(H5N1) is spreading globally after first appearing in Asia. It is epizootic (an epidemic in nonhumans) and panzootic (affecting animals of many species, especially over a wide area), killing tens of millions of birds and spurring the culling of hundreds of millions of others to stem its spread. Many references to “bird flu” and H5N1 in the popular media refer to this strain.
For the time being, we need to learn two terms. H1N1, which refers to swine flu and H5N1, which refers to avian or bird flu. As a whole, neither of those on their own pose a great threat to human life. Not on a pandemic scale. History has shown mutations and large scale infection and fatalities. For the most part, our natural immune systems have been able to overcome those viruses. As we all know, less severe viruses make their annual rounds. The seasonal flu can and always has been fatal to people with underlying conditions that weaken the immune system. But we have never seen anything close to covid-19 and its number of variants. Which brings us to the fourth and final theory on the origin of covid-19, a laboratory.
Although there are suspicions on the number of people involved in virus research, what governments are involved, and what are their motives, the majority of research turns up a few names and facts. As we have seen, Dr. Fauci asked for and received funds to research avian or bird flu. There were a few steps Dr. Fauci and his staff had to cover. First was the ability for the H5N1 bird flu to survive at lower temperatures. Once that was accomplished, their new H5N1 had to develop the ability to transmit from human to human. We will cover each of those studies in future chapters. For now, we need to remember that H1N1 refers to swine flu, which can easily be transmitted from person to person, but is seldom fatal. H5N1 refers to bird flu, which has proven to be fatal in humans, but transmission to humans is rare, and H5N1 on its own is not able to transmit from human to human.
