I work in a larger hospital, also in infectious disease.
Shit is hands down the scariest scenario you can imagine, and it really isn't a question of if, but when.
Making a mutated, and more virulent or deadly, strain of existing viruses could almost be done at home. If you've got a small nation-state they could engineer their own damned virus in 6 months, fully customized.
bizarre and reproducible shit is popping up on our multiplex PCR machine.
Similar to coronavirus in the fact some of the PCR results got flagged for coronavirus but not SARS. This was last week but when we worked it out it was generally around 35kb which is MASSIVE for an RNA virus.
This is just a rotation for me so I'm likely not the best person to ask beyond letting you know its in Eastern Canada.
Massive RNA virus, no obvious symptoms, NP swabs detected it on a PCR machine.
Whatever it is the genome is massive and vaguely trips our automated coronavirus threshold
Doc Simon Fink:
Aren’t depopulation faggots like Gates already spreading pathogens via insect vectors?
AIDS was a virus that is protected by the protein coat on the RNA preventing the antibodies, the T-4 cells, of the immune system from detecting and eliminating it. The alleged cure for AIDS lies in the excrement of the white fungus that’s grown from the Chinese cucumber Trichosanthes kirilowii. This excrement, which develops after about two or three weeks, is separated with hydrazine sulphate in an acidification process which dissolves the protein coat on the RNA and exposes the nucleus of the virus that’s detected by the antibodies in the immune system. Regardless of how weak the immune system is, the virus will be destroyed. No more than 20cc dose per 36 hour period should be administered. No antibiotics should be used during this period. The 20ccs are metabolized in 36 hours, having dissolved the protein coat on the virus.
China is a major source of concern. Not only is the place a massive breeding ground for novel agents due to shitty agricultural practices, the proximity of humans to animals ensures that novel strains of influenza and other viruses will hop to humans and spread like wildfire.
It literally only takes one mutation of one virus to unleash a pandemic. Every infectious pig or bird is a little viral containment vessel that could birth the next plague.
Though I'd be surprised if China is actively doing large-scale tests on their population, it wouldn't surprise me. That said, China's biological weapons program is much much larger than the public or even experts in the field are aware of. They are almost certainly genetically engineering certain viruses (smallpox) to be vaccine immune, but they are probably also engineering them to be more lethal agents in general. We really don't know the full scale of China's biological weapons program but I would bet you wouldn't be able to sleep well if you knew its full scope.
so that would be a torovirus of the coronaviridae?
but jumping from 25-28bp to 35+bp is quite a lot
