The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus spreading across the globe has led some to speculate that it was created in China as a biological warfare weapon or experiment. An analysis done on the public genome sequence has shown that there is no evidence that the virus was engineered or altered in a lab and is completely natural. Scientists have compared genome sequence data with other coronavirus data to come to this conclusion. “We can firmly determine that SARS-CoV-2 originated through natural processes,” commented Kristian Andersen, PhD. Also, soon after the outbreak began scientists in China quickly compiled and released the genome sequence data to the rest of the world, rather than keeping it a secret for as long as possible.
