A leading team of scientists claim that coronavirus is “almost perfectly human adapted” and this virus has never been seen in humans previously.
Australian scientists at Flinders University in Adelaide and Latrobe University in Melbourne have researched how the virus was transmitted to humand, compared to other animals.
Nikolai Petrovsky, Professor of Medicine at Flinders University said this virus is “almost perfectly human adapted.”
The scientific research study found that humans are more susceptible to coronavirus that bats and other animals.
Professor Petrovsky who is a virus expert has insists coronavirus is like no other disease and has been “completely optimised from day one without the need to evolve.”
However, the Professor has not ruled out the virus could have started naturally, but has not ruled out coronavirus was man made in a lab in Wuhan, China.
Speaking to the Daily Mail Australia he said, “This is a new virus that has never been in humans before, but it has an extraordinarily high binding to human receptors, which is very surprising.
“It is almost perfectly human adapted, it couldn’t do any better.
“We have to ask how that happened. Was it a complete fluke? It can be as nature has many shots at goal and you only see the ones that land.
“Another possibility which still cannot be excluded is that SARS-CoV-2 was created by a recombination event that occurred inadvertently or consciously in a laboratory handling coronaviruses, with the new virus then accidentally released into the local human population.”
Professor Petrovsky has supported an inquiry into the origin over coronavirus, which the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has backed.
Worryingly the scientists concluded that the virus would dhave needed significant adaption to infect humans, therefore meaning it was man made at the top-secret Wuhan lab in China.
The research team also discovered that the chances of humans being infected from Pangolins is “ridiculously low.”
Professor Petrovsky said, “The probability of one pangolin creating the virus and that then comes into close contact with a human to infect them is ridiculously low.
“We would expect it would have to be in lots of infected pangolins and we’ve not found any.”
He added, “No one can say a laboratory leak is not a possibility.”
In March Professor Fang Chi-tai from the National Taiwan University (NTU), said based on the virus’s unusual structure it is most likely “man made” and there is a theory coronavirus was somehow leaked or released from the Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China.
The Professor claims it was very possible that the Wuhan Chinese scientists created the deadly virus by simply adding four amino acids to an existing bat virus, which therefore makes it much easier to transmit to people.
Professor Fang added, “The mutations found in the novel coronavirus are unusual in an academic sense.
“It is indeed possible that it is a man-made product.
“From an academic point of view, it is indeed possible that the amino acids were added to COVID-19 in the lab by humans.”
The scientists in Wuhan said, “In summary, somebody was entangled with the evolution of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.
