A shocking news, destined to create much controversy, is shaking the whole world, after that in China a team of scientists is experimenting with a new mutant strain of Covid, with a mortality rate of 100% on guinea pigs (mice). All the transgenic mice used as guinea pigs died within a week, showing the lethality of the virus that the Chinese are experiencing.

The mutated variant infected the lungs, bones, eyes, trachea and brains of guinea pig mice.

Through the online platform bioRxiv, the authors of the study, Beijing University of Chemical Technology, explained: "We found that it can infect hACE2 mice, with high viral loads detected in both lung and brain tissues. We assume that the cause of death could be linked to the occurrence of a late brain infection.

The mice began to show a decrease in body weight starting from the fifth day after infection, reaching a 10% reduction compared to the initial weight by the following day. By the seventh day after infection infection, the mice showed symptoms such as piloerection, hunched posture and slow movements, and their eyes turned white.

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report showing that a pangolin Coronavirus related to SARS-CoV-2 can cause mortality of 100% in transgenic mice, suggesting the possibility of GX_P2V spreading to humans. However, the adaptive evolutionary changes of this variant during their laboratory culture remain poorly studied."

The reactions of the international scientific community are of indignation and great concern towards the studies carried out.

MJ Allen, founder at Biometrology, nanobiologist, scanning probe microscopist, posted on X: "Correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears that the culture of the virology community strongly discourages members from speaking openly about specific current and ongoing biosafety issues around the world.

Given what is happening today at the interface between research on risky pathogens and the public's understanding of it, it seems obvious that the culture of your community must change in the direction of embracing a broader, more open dialogue that includes space for self-criticism."

X_P2V is a mutant of Covid GX/2017, a pathogen correlated with SARS-Cov-2 identified early in the pandemic. Preserved in a laboratory of Pechino, if it is adapted to the cellular coltura.

"This leaflet must be closed first if it is too late," he wrote on X with Professor Gennadi Glinsky, professor at the Stanford School of Medicine, concerned about the misconception of the biopsy during the cycle.

What is a coronavirus?

The coronavirus is a positive RNA virus with a diameter of circa 80-160 nm, it makes it a larger virus able to attack humans. With 30,000 genetic bases, the coronavirus is the largest genome that has an RNA virus, including a possible RNA virus that has a mechanism for correcting genetic literature to prevent accumulation of mutations. The name of the virus derives from the classic form which can be detected by electronic microscopy when transmitted to corona.

The number is growing rapidly with various new coronaviruses reported recently, traced to SARS-CoV-1 reported in 2002, MERS-CoV reported in 2012 and SARS-CoV-2 reported in 2019 in Wuhan, China.

If you thought about the first case of coronavirus infection, you should go to a vet in 1912 to describe the case of a febrile stomach with a huge increase in the stomach. My solo negli anni 1960 un virus con struttura a form of corona che causava comuni raffreddori venne isolateto e venne associato al fenomeno, inclusivei altri riscontrati in svariati animali. I thought about the coronavirus pit being capable of causing it only if it happened, but ultimately it was the 2003 SARS epidemic.

The coronavirus is responsible for various pathologies that do not affect mammals and animals, but are not tested for diarrhea in bovine animals or in respiratory diseases. If there is any respiratory infection that causes respiratory infections, it may cause pneumonia or bronchitis.

The coronavirus is responsible for the serious SARS epidemic of 2002-2004, the MERS epidemic of 2012-2014 and the COVID-19 pandemic of 2019-2023.
