China Might Not Be The Source Of Coronavirus, Oxford Scientists Claimed

Traces of the Coronavirus were found in sewage samples in Brazil, Spain, and Italy even before the same discovery was made in China

Some Oxford experts recently claimed the Coronavirus might have remained dormant all over the world before taking advantage of a favorable condition to break out in China.

According to Dr. Tom Jefferson of the CEBM (Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine), there is evidence showing the virus had been all over the world waiting for the favorable condition to thrive. If this claim is to be believed, China might not be the country of origin of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Traces of the Coronavirus were found in sewage samples in Brazil, Spain, and Italy even before the same discovery was made in China.

Another research, which has not been peer-reviewed, said the Coronavirus was found in sewage samples from Barcelona from March 12, 2019.

In an interview, Dr. Jefferson urged scientists to look into the reason why the virus seems to live well in meatpacking and food factories.

He said the same phenomenon happened with the Spanish Flu in 1918. The pandemic took the lives of 30% of Western Samoa’s population while they had had no contact with the outside world. Some believe the cargo ship Talune was the source bring the contagious disease to the island.

Jefferson said there was a possibility that the Coronavirus didn’t come, or go anywhere. It was always around us waiting for the right conditions to thrive.

To back his claim, he cited evidence of the virus in sewage samples from all over the world.

It appears that the concentration is higher in sewage with a temperature of 4°C. Meatpacking plants usually maintain this same temperature. However, for now, jumping to a conclusion is too soon and we need more research to be sure where the Coronavirus comes from.
