Despite its restrained wording, this study strongly indicated a laboratory origin of covid-19. It came out in January 2020 but was quickly memory-holed by MSM, govt agencies, and mainstream Western science. Taken together with recently released Fauci emails from that time period, we can see that US scientists knew of the probable lab origin of the virus in early 2020 but said nothing publicly. That can mean they knew or suspected several things: either the virus escaped or was deliberately released; either it was released by China, the USA, or someone else. Was Fauci covering his own role in the creation of covid or was he covering for China? I have long tended to believe a deliberate release of covid by China following their loss of the trade war to Trump is the most likely explanation. But after more than a year of very bad US policy on covid, I have gradually begun to consider more seriously that US and/or Western actors played a central, nefarious role in starting the pandemic.
Our analysis of the spike glycoprotein of 2019-nCoV revealed several interesting findings: First, we identified 4 unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike glycoprotein that are not present in any other coronavirus reported till date. To our surprise, all the 4 inserts in the 2019-nCoV mapped to short segments of amino acids in the HIV-1 gp120 and Gag among all annotated virus proteins in the NCBI database. This uncanny similarity of novel inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag is unlikely to be fortuitous. Further, 3D modelling suggests that atleast 3 of the unique inserts which are non-contiguous in the primary protein sequence of the 2019-nCoV spike glycoprotein converge to constitute the key components of the receptor binding site. Of note, all the 4 inserts have pI values of around 10 that may facilitate virus-host interactions. Taken together, our findings suggest unconventional evolution of 2019-nCoV that warrants further investigation. Our work highlights novel evolutionary aspects of the 2019-nCoV and has implications on the pathogenesis and diagnosis of this virus.Uncanny similarity of unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag
