In August 2019, all research at US Army Medical Research facility for Infectious Diseases was indefinitely put on hold after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cited the organization for failing to meet biosafety standards.
This was the same facility which released the Ames Anthrax spores which threatened US Senators and killed 5 back in 2001. Was the closing of USAMRID caused by the release of Covid--19, or did some mad scientist, angry over the facility's
closing, decide to get back at President Trump by destroying the US (and the world's) economy by releasing this bioweapon? 100 US soldiers took part in a military exercise in Wuhan, China in October 2019, just short weeks before
the appearance of the virus. Any intelligent person would know the virus would quickly spread to other nations and eventually find its way back into the USA. The US can call it "a Chinese virus" all they want, but a virus has no
ethnicity. I guarantee that USAMRID had people working to weaponize the corona virus. If they were more a facility to counter biological weapons, they would have created a vaccine for Ccorona by now. But, they are "defensive" in the same
context as the US defense department. The defense department makes war, and the Research facility makes bioweapons. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but you heard it here first.
On the bright side, this virus could save US Social Security, and overall it has to be a sigh of relief for the environment. A lot of cars and planes aren't emitting exhaust. Who knows, the oceans could even cool off by half a degree.
Educational institutions might figure out students don't have to attend classes to learn. People can vote from their homes. Social distancing can give a lesson about overcrowdding, etc., etc.
