This comes about from a little research I have been doing but thought it interesting reading. Really makes you think!
These are reports from WHO, World Health Organization, re:coronavirus. It has been around for a while and pandemic but never more pronounced as it is now. Click on the dates below and also look at where these areas are in the early days of coronavirus. More importantly, look where the first entry starts us out thinking about coronavirus in September 2012. So! Is it new or has it taken this long to manifest into what we see today? It came after the Human infection with avian influenza A(H7N9) virus then Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV).
When did it change to CoVid 19 and for what reason?
These are some of the dates extacted from the WHO website and they all do not read that it started in China. Is this a new strain? Who would have thought that it might have started in the Middle East because most, if not all, WHO records point to other places, you can check them out on the Full List below.
Here are “The Links”.
