Which Country Responsible for Coronavirus?

Weaker version of new crown virus might have spread for years. Now which Country responsible for Coronavirus?

At present, with the spread of the new crown epidemic around the world, scientists are increasingly exploring the source of the virus. Recently, Robert Gary, a professor at Tulane University in the United States, clearly stated in an interview with the ABC that according to their analysis, the Wuhan seafood market is not the source of the new crown virus. This conclusion quickly attracted great attention from the international community.

What did Gary say about Corona Virus?

Briefly review the ins and outs of this matter:

On March 17, the international top academic journal Natural Medicine published a new research paper co-authored by 5 scientists from the United States, Britain and Australia. The main point of this paper is that the new coronavirus "is not constructed in the laboratory, nor is it a purposefully manipulated virus."

New Coronavirus papers published in "Natural Medicine"

On March 18, the official website of the Tulane University of the United States published an interview video with Robert Garry, one of the authors of the paper and the virologist of the school. In the video, Professor Gary introduced their team's research on the origin of the new coronavirus. He said: 
"I can tell you that this is not a biological weapon, no one has made this virus in the laboratory, this is a product of nature. Now we don't know how long the virus has survived in humans, maybe only a few Months, maybe years, or even decades, and eventually a small mutation happened that made it spread faster. "

On March 27, the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) reported on the interview with Robert Gary. In this interview, Gary said a key message: Although some people think that the virus originated in a seafood market in Wuhan, he thinks it is wrong. "Our analysis, as well as the analysis of some scientists, point to a seafood company that is more than Wuhan.
 "The market originated earlier," Gary said. "There were definitely cases there, but that wasn't the origin of the virus." 
Here's where the context is. And that refers to the Wuhan Seafood Market (that is, the South China Seafood Market).

More and more scientific studies have found.
In fact, more and more scientists have made more discoveries through research.

For example, on January 24, the online version of "The Lancet" published a research paper involving 7 clinicians from the Jinyintan Hospital in Wuhan City. Taking 41 newly diagnosed cases of coronary heart disease as the research object, 13 of them were found. The case has no history of contact with the South China Seafood Market.

On January 26, Science published an article entitled "Wuhan South China Seafood Market May Not Be the Birthplace of New Coronavirus", citing Daniel Lucy, an infectious disease expert at Georgetown University in the United States, stating: 
"13 people and this market There is no connection, not a small number. "He believes that if this is the case, the new coronavirus may originate elsewhere.

Academician Zhong Nanshan, an authoritative respiratory specialist in China, also pointed out recently that the epidemic first appeared in China, but it did not necessarily originate in China.

A few days ago, the Canadian think tank "Global Research" published an article with the signature Larry Romanov on the website, citing the analysis of the virus sources in Iran and Italy by virologists in Taiwan, China, and pointed out that the two countries have now disclosed the local epidemic. And found that they differ from the Chinese genome. 
The article also pointed out that due to the large amount of Western media's attention to China, many people thought that the new coronavirus was transmitted from China to other countries, but now it seems that this has proven to be wrong.

On March 26, the world's top academic journal "CELL" published an article by Zhang Yongzhen, an adjunct professor of the Shanghai (Fudan University Affiliated) Public Health Clinical Center, and Edward, Professor of the School of Life and Environmental Sciences and the School of Medical Sciences, University of Sydney, Australia. A review written by Holmes. Their team was the first to disclose the whole gene sequence of the new coronavirus to the world.

Comments published in the top international academic journal "CELL"

This review believes that by December 2019, the new coronavirus may have undergone some key mutations during the "secret transmission" of the population. This means that the new coronavirus may appear earlier in the population than expected, and may not even appear in Wuhan the earliest.

No cases of Chinese contact history found in multiple countries

Now, more and more countries have found cases with no history of Chinese exposure.
For example, patients in California found no history of travel to the hardest-hit areas or exposure to known cases of new coronary pneumonia.
The first two patients diagnosed in Iran did not have travel history in China. A Japanese man returned to Japan after traveling from Hawaii He was diagnosed and has not visited China in a short time.

According to reports from the BBC and other media, although the first known British patient with new coronary pneumonia, "Patient No. 1," was discovered on January 31, the latest study found that in the middle of January, there have already been cases of new coronary pneumonia in the United Kingdom. A family in Sussex (was under inspection). A survey of the family members' previous activities revealed that they had no history of contact with Chinese people but had contact history with Americans in the month before the onset of illness.

Which Country Responsible for Coronavirus

In a word: believe in science! To listen to professional and scientific advice!

So, people have to ask, where does the virus come from?
No matter where the virus originates, do not point it to any race, color or region. This is an international consensus and a human conscience!

As Professor Gary pointed out in an interview, mutations in surface proteins may be the cause of this pandemic, but before accumulating to the current situation, the weaker version of this virus may have been circulating in the population for years or even several years. ten years.

In which country is the source of the new coronavirus?

Voice of the Ministry of Chinese Foreign Affairs: 
On March 23, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang hosted a regular press conference. A reporter asked a question. Cui Tiankai, Chinese ambassador to the United States, said in an interview with the media recently that it is "harmful and crazy" to speculate on the source of the new crown virus without reason. 

What is China's position on this?

Geng Shuang said that in the past period of time, I have stated China's position on this issue many times at regular press conferences. The source of the new coronavirus is a scientific issue, which requires scientific and professional advice.

 WHO and the international community have a clear consensus that they cannot associate the virus with specific countries, regions or races and oppose stigmatization. 
We have strongly opposed individual U.S. politicians and senior officials who have used the epidemic situation to discredit the Chinese government and the Chinese people's anti-epidemic efforts for a period of time and used the new crown virus to stigmatize China. 

In the current epidemic situation, all countries in the world should work together to overcome the difficulties. At this time, trying to divert attention and shirk responsibility, not only does not help the defense epidemic work, but also promotes the international community's cooperation in epidemic prevention.

WHO calls on countries to take immediate action against virus threat

In response to the current situation of the New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic, the World Health Organization called on February 27 that countries should seize the "window of opportunity" for epidemic prevention and control and take active actions to effectively control the spread of the virus. At the same time, there is an urgent need to rapidly expand and improve diagnostic capabilities worldwide, and to detect and confirm new cases of new pneumococcal pneumonia as early as possible. WHO is doing all it can to support countries in detecting new pneumonia virus.

On the 27th, the World Health Organization held a regular news briefing on the new coronary pneumonia epidemic at its Geneva headquarters.

WHO Director-General Tan Desai said that in the past two days, the number of new cases in the rest of the world, has exceeded the number of new cases in China.

In short time it also reached in Brazil, Georgia, Greece, Northern Macedonia, Norway, Pakistan and Romania, etc. Seven countries reported cases for the first time. To date, there are 3474 confirmed cases and 54 deaths in 44 countries outside China, and the global response to the new crown pneumonia epidemic is at a decisive moment.

Tan Desai said that the outbreaks in Iran, Italy and South Korea showed that the virus is very powerful. Therefore, WHO recommends that countries act quickly and adopt comprehensive prevention and control measures to prevent people from getting sick and save lives.

The key information from China's national defense and control work shows that this virus is not influenza and can be controlled by correct measures. In Guangdong, China, scientists tested 320,000 samples from a community and found that only 0.14% of them were positive for new crown pneumonia.

This suggests that it is possible to curb the spread of the new crown pneumonia virus, and there is already evidence that the virus does not appear to have widespread community transmission. 

Research shows that positive early prevention and control measures can prevent its spread. Therefore, all countries must be prepared for the various situations that may occur in the epidemic, and no country should take it for granted that it will stay out of business.

Ayurveda Ayurvedic Treatment Therapy Science

What is Ayurveda? Ayurvedic Science and Treatment in India: Ayurveda is a form of healing and the science of long life. It is a traditional Indian therapeutic method that is well-known throughout the world. The Atharva Veda of the Vedas is its source. The Vedas is a vast body of knowledge that was directly transmitted from God to revered saints. The Vedas are also said to be God's own manifestation. The tie between Ayurveda and God is eternal since this knowledge is disclosed each time it is generated. The written history of ayurveda dates back more than 5,000 years.

Ayurvedic medicine is what is meant by this. According to legend, Maharshi Sushruta learned the fundamental principles of Ayurveda from Brahma. The "SushrutaSamhita," "Charak Samhita," and "Bela Samhita," along w

Can Dolphins Live in Fresh Water?

Is it Possible for Dolphins to Live in Fresh Water? We are very familiar with dolphins and fin-less porpoises, but dolphins and fin-less porpoises are both in the same family.  Why is there a difference between finless porpoise and porpoise?  Can dolphins follow the estuary and live in the big rivers?   Let me start with the answer: a small part can, the vast majority cannot. The reason is simply three sentences: can’t swim, eat, and live.   In detail, it may be longer and boring. You must be mentally prepared.   At present, whether it is fossil evidence or molecular biology research, it is still believed that cetaceans have a single origin, that is, the current whales and dolphins evolved from the same ancestor.  Of course, various whales and dolphins have embarked on their own different evolutionary paths. To this day, more than 80 kinds of whales and dolphins with completely different body shapes, habits and distribution areas have been evolved.  From the physical stru
