    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    These might be the kind of things you’d use to get the body to recognize HIV and attack it, in a “safer” delivery virus than a retrovirus. Maybe someone thought that you could use a coronavirus as the basis for a vaccine.

    Or maybe they both just evolved in the same species of bat or something.

    Or maybe the Illuminati thought the world needed an “Airborne Chinese AIDS” scare.

    I mean doesnt we have like 50% the genome of earth worms, doesn't make us actual worms thought...
    Yeah but it actually expresses this protein. It’s not just junk sequences that don’t have an active effect on the virus’s structure and function.

    I'm sure lazy racism trying to masquerade as humour goes down better on facebook.

    I double checked whether it was true that HIV and coronavirus have similarities. I took the four additional sequences (the “novel inserts”) they found in the coronavirus genome and I looked to see if, as they said, it was similar to HIV. The truth is while these sequences do pop up in HIV, they also pop up in tons of other viruses. There’s no reason to immediately suspect a nefarious fusion of HIV and coronavirus.

    Sequence one out of four is indeed found in both Wuhan coronavirus and HIV. The same sequence also appears in a virus that infects Streptococcus (spherical bacteria), a rat virus, and an “acute bee paralysis virus.”

    I did the same analysis on sequence two. Once again, HIV and the Wuhan coronavirus appear together, but also a mouse herpes virus, a rat cytomegalovirus (the virus that causes mononucleosis, popularly known as mono or the ‘kissing disease’), and a virus that infects sweet potatoes.

    The stories for the other two sequences are the same. Those sequences appear in benign viruses like Peach-associated luteovirus (a plant virus), Bovine papillomavirus type 9 (the cow version of HPV), and Leptopilina boulardi Toti-like virus (a virus that infects wasps).

    So the facts are that Wuhan coronavirus may have some new additions to it, but they’re common bits and pieces found in tons of viruses — not just HIV — and there’s no proof that they even have anything to do with how the Wuhan coronavirus behaves.

    And there’s definitely no proof that they were put there on purpose.

    On the plus side this has done more to bring back manufacturing to the US than any policy made.

    Wut?

    Show me some proof of that. I know many chinese factories are shutdown but to directly say that usa manufacturing is ramping up is a stretch.

    One obviously can't spring new factories or change tooling lines out of nowhere but depending on the seriousness of this outbreak it might be a catalyst for a less decentralised approach to manufacturing certain goods...

    Or more automation.

    Or even better, automation set as legal requirement for import: outsource the robot with the production!

    If by "back to the US" you mean "move to Vietnam and Taiwan", then yes.

    If this really gets going in the USA, it will be an epic shit show compared to China.
    Many people without health insurance? Check.
    No plaid sick leave? Check.

    Of course it will hit the poor mucj harder, as usual, but I'm sure the true americans will find a way to blame them for their own misfortune.
