Multiple spillovers and onward transmission of SARS-Cov-2 in free-living and captive White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus)

One-Sentence Summary SARS-CoV-2 was detected in one-third of sampled White-tailed deer in Iowa between September 2020 and January of 2021 that likely resulted from multiple human-to-deer spillover events and deer-to-deer transmission.

This fits with the Ethical Skeptic’s hypothesis that human waste used in farm fertilizer sprayed onto fields caused the spread of covid in regions where this was done primarily, and secondarily in other regions through wind dispersal.

Furthermore, this spillover into deer (which indicates spillover to other mammals, including humans) happened even earlier in China due to the above reasoning and to China’s large order for PCR tests in May 2019.

I heard Rand Paul talking about blood tests from stored Chinese blood from early 2019 showing no covid antibodies and have also read this assertion elsewhere. These blood samples indicated to Paul that covid arose suddenly in China in late autumn 2019, inadvertently refuting TES’s hypothesis. BUT the problem with that line of reasoning is Chinese statistics and figures on anything can never be trusted. In this case, since even more evidence (high “flu” rates in China and surrounding areas in 2017-2019 coupled with greater natural immunity in those regions to covid) points to a first appearance of covid in China in 2017, we can largely discount Paul’s conclusion about a late 2019 first appearance of covid in China. The deer findings and early PCR test orders by China can be better explained by either: 1) early escape of the covid bioweapon in China or 2) early deliberate release of covid or a similar virus in China to inoculate the Chinese population in preparation for the aggressive release of covid in late 2019.

Needless to say, the above argues for a strong KOBK interpretation of Chinese actions which calls for a strong KOBK response from the rest of the world. ABN
