I don't think this was a man made virus, in the sense that someone deliberately set out to create it and then released it, but I do agree with Lyn, it seems to have jumped from bats to humans, this isn't the first disease to come from China's poor hygene in its live animal markets, I think SARS was and avian flu.

I forgot the actual link from previous post. I'll re find it but then this one also is relevant.

It makes good reading and easy news to say it started as cross contamination in a Chinese market, many virus cultures are worked on and further developed in a lot of governmental laboratories across the world...however it started, give it two years and it'll be forgotten about - certainly by the next time shop workers, drivers, NHS staff and the like are asking for a pay rise, then it'll be back to 'they're not worth it'.

Sponsored by Andrex?...I'll go with that one :-)

Mags..."Nigel. I'm surprised you reacted like you have. I had higher respect of you. Beware of running with the pack Nige. You always end up foolish and used."

Not particularly interested in running with the pack Mags.

Nigel. I don’t think anyone could accuse you of running with the pack.

I'm not sure what you mean by a manufactured virus? It's a variant of other similar viruses and it is indeed novel in that humans have not been exposed to it previously, and it looks like it may have hopped across from pangolins in the wet markets in China. Fact checker sites refute the suggestion that it was created by humans and the article stating that it came from US military is a hoax.
