An explosive belt or Novichok or Corona. Just because the means are somehow scientific or technical. Does not mean that motivations are rational. After reading a bit on the Internet and here, no doubt bio - weapons are very possible. Motive could be simply hatred or money. What I think we need to know, is that, will corona evolve naturally, by somebody eating a Bat and having a snake for dessert and also suffering from HIV? The corona should form easily, if this is naturally possible. If not, then must find source of release of bio weapon.
Retro-viruses can easily jump between species. All of the nasty flue strains involved migration from one species to another and China is the
perfect environment for this due to population density and bizarre eating habits. So we had avian flu going through pigs to humans.
It is very likely that this strain of corona virus originated in bats. One theory I have heard is that a biolab in Wuhan which used
bats as in vivo test specimens sold the bats afterwards to restaurants and markets since the bats are considered magical meat
and fetch a high price. It is very plausible that they money incentive was there and that the clowns selling the lab bats assumed
they would be properly cooked. But thanks to the voodoo think about "potency" (e.g. Tiger penis) the bats were not properly
cooked for the soup.
A very plausible theory for the origin of HIV (aka AIDS) was SIV migration into the human population during the 1950s polio
vaccine trials in Africa. The western researchers who staged these trials used live chimps as incubators and did not process the vaccines
for contamination by other viruses. Of course, there is rabid denial of this theory by the western establishment, but HIV was
obviously something unknown before the 1950s. It is no accident that there was massive infection with HIV in the region of
Africa that the polio vaccine trials were staged. The initial infection happened during the 1950s. By the 1970s the disease
jumped to other continents and was rapidly spread by groups (gays, drug users) where blood contact was common.
IMHO, HIV is one of the "good" guys in viruses. It mainly affects degenerates. Heterosexuals and non drug users are hardly affected. I am quite disappointed that medicine today is very potent to extend lives of these scum. And of course by using our money.
Now about SARS-CoV-2 virus - if this virus was able to infect dog and if it came from the bat.. would it have capacity to jump back to Bats in South America and have a permanent reservoir in them? Or it needs mutations to do so? I know very little about biology.
