According to a professor from Oxford University, the coronavirus may not have originated in China.
Researcher Tom Jeferson, invited to investigate the detection of the virus that causes SARS-CoV-2 in sewage water, said the remains of this virus. China’s first COVID-19 case claimed that it predates the reporting date. In the opinion of an expert, the coronavirus did not originate in China or originate entirely in China. Rather, the coronavirus has always been around the world with us, waiting for the most favorable conditions for its emergence.
Dr Tom Jefferson of the University of Oxford Evidence-Based Medical Center (CEBM) suggested that before this virus emerged in Asia, a global organism could exist on Earth before it emerged, and that it might be waiting for the appropriate conditions to finally emerge.
It was observed in sewage samples taken from Spain, Italy and Brazil before it was discovered in China.
Traces of COVID-19 were observed in sewage samples taken from Spain, Italy and Brazil before it was discovered in China. This article, which has not been peer-reviewed and has not yet been published, claims that genomes of SARS-CoV-2 were found in sewage samples taken from Barcelona on March 12, 2019.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Jefferson made a call to investigate how and why the virus could proliferate so quickly in food factories and meat production-packaging facilities. Jefferson thinks, along with CEBM executive Carl Heneghan, that clarifying this situation will provide a lot of information on identifying new transmission routes. Especially sewerage and shared sewage systems and infrastructures are considered to be determinative in determining these routes.
“Although it is thought that the Spanish Flu arrived in Western Samoa, an island country in 1918, on a ship called Talune, there are some contradictions in this part. In 1918, 30 percent of the people living on this island, which had no connection with the outside world, died of this disease. “The explanation for this situation could only be that these viruses do not come or go from anywhere.
They always expect the environment we live in and environmental factors to activate them, there may be both human density and environmental conditions. We need to find exactly these conditions. ”
“We have serious evidence that the virus is found in sewage water anywhere. In addition, there are growing findings that it is possible to be transmitted through faeces. ”
Jefferson: “Meat packing facilities are usually around 4 ° C.
This can be called the temperature at which the coronavirus becomes fully stable. We see that wastewater is highly concentrated in terms of virus at temperatures of 4 ° C, which is one of the factors that push the virus to be active. (Concentrationis a chemistry term used to study the amount of solute in a solution. Concentration can be expressed in many ways.)
