New research from India may suggest the coronavirus was bioengineered
While the research can be hard to put in laymen's terms, researchers from India confirm that the coronavirus is an unlikely mutation who's development remains elusive to the scientific community.
According to the bioRxiv preprint first posted online, Jan. 31, 2020, amino acid residues found in the coronavirus have identity or similarity to those in the HIV1 gp120 or HIV-1 Gag and that these residues in ky structural proteins of HIV-1 are unlikely to be causes of nature.
With four new insertions in the S protein of 2019-nCoV found when compared to its nearest relative; these proteins are not found in any other coronavirus and are critical for the viruses to identify and latch on to their host cells and for viral assembly, making the virus easy to catch and hard to get rid of.
This mysterious similarity of unique inserts in the 2019- nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag is also unlikely to be accidental.
While the researchers do not flat out say the coronavirus was bioengineered, the possibility seems very likely.
