More On SARS As
Manmade BioWeapon
By Patricia Doyle, PhD

Hello Jeff - I would like to take Dr. Filatov's thoughts a step further. First of all, it is quite possible that "someone" was experimenting with chimeraviruses. In other words, they were in the beginning stage and trying to learn "how to fabricate" chimeraviruses.
The agent that causes SARS may only have been a test, a learning experience. They probably did not intend for it to escape into the environment.
Another factor, coronaviruses have a very large genome, I think the largest of all viral families. Someone learning about the process of creating chimeraviruses may choose one that is considered easy to work with, and also easy to procure. Coronaviruses are quite common in life and the large genome would probably make working with it easy for someone new to chimeraviruses.
Also, a bioweapon does not have to be 100% lethal. There are many that were developed as incapacitating agents. The US developed the weaponized form of Rabbit Fever known as Tularemia. Tularemia does not have a high kill rate and is treatable.
IF the virus escaped prematurely, or if it was only a "test" pathogen testing the skill needed to develop chimeraviruses, a vaccine was probably not conisdered or they did not have time to work on one.
Because it is a coronavirus, it is likely that people will not form immunity and will be at risk to contract it again. If it spreads in a closed community, such as a military base, it could cause long term quarantine and thus, render the base "inactive" for some time. Thus, it would be an incapacitating agent.
Dr. Filatov does observe that the virus is not widespread. It is found now around the world, but then again, not in every country. The manner of spread is still largely unknown.
The fact that China attempted to keep news of the virus and the outbreak in Guangdong secret, at the risk of public health around the globe, mandates that we consider WHY? There have been numerous outbreaks of different diseases in China, and they allowed news of those oubreaks to be made public. WHY was this outbreak different? Because they were not forthcoming and even tried to hide the severity and numbers of infected and dead, right up to the present, we must ask if they knew more about the virus then they are telling or wanted to be made public. This fact, combined with others mentioned, does enable credibility to the theory of SARS agent as a man-made pathogen.
Perhaps the virus will be so unstable that it will mutate and not continue to infect people, or become more "cold like," thus lessening the severity of symptoms.

Nikolai Filatov, head of Moscow's epidemiological services, told the Gazeta daily that he thought the pneumonia was man-made because "there is no vaccine for this virus, its make-up is unclear, it has not been very widespread and the population is not immune to it."
