The World Health Organization has reported that there is no evidence to suggest that dogs or cats can become infected with the new coronavirus COVID-19 and they also play no role in the spread of this disease.
It is possible that a person with COVID-19 could sneeze or contaminate their pet, and then another person could touch that animal and contract the disease, but that is as far as it goes.
In fact the COVID-19 virus had to be entrained for seven years in a laboratory environment, and this is what took place in the Virology laboratory in Wuhan which received research grants of 3.7 million funding from the United States NIH and Dr Fauci was at that time involved in the NIH, these funds were invested into gain-of-function entraining the bat COVID-19 cells to grow chimera cells in mice to then transfer and evolve to (gain-of-function ) human tissue in a petri dish in a laboratory environment.
Nature published an article on this stating ”Although almost all coronaviruses isolated from bats have not been able to bind to the key human receptor, SHC014 is not the first that can do so. In 2013, researchers reported this ability for the first time in a different coronavirus isolated from the same bat population2.”
According to Newsweek funding for the WIV occurred in two phases. The first took place from 2014 to 2019, through a $3.7 million project for collecting and studying bat corona viruses. This work was largely led by Dr. Zhengli Shi, known to many as “batwoman” for her years investigating caves in search of new bat viruses.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology undertook coronavirus experiments on mammals captured more than 1,000 miles away in Yunnan which were funded by a 3.7 million grant from the US government. Sequencing of the COVID-19 genome has traced it back to bats found in Yunnan caves but it was first thought to have transferred to humans at an animal market in Wuhan. The revelation that the Wuhan Institute was experimenting on bats from the area already known to be the source of COVID-19 – and doing so with American money – has sparked further fears that the lab, and not the market, is the original outbreak source.
The second phase began shortly after, with another $3.7 million. Unlike the first, this project appears to have included work on “gain-of-function”: research that investigates how a virus can gain the ability to infect a new type of animal.
This process in itself takes many years of research and funding and that is without natural evolution being involved, the human hand cultivating such experiments in microbiology laboratories should be deemed as dangerous and classed as biological weapons manufacturing should be banned globally.
”The latest study was already under way before the US moratorium began, and the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) allowed it to proceed while it was under review by the agency, says Ralph Baric, an infectious-disease researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a co-author of the study. The NIH eventually concluded that the work was not so risky as to fall under the moratorium, he says.”- Nature, Engineered bat virus stirs debate over risky research
SARS, H1N1 and Swine flu are also possibly products of gain-to-function research that are also part of COVID-19 genome, SARS 1.0 backbone, it also contains MERs is a mechanism of gain of entry-
it is possible that the insertion of a furin cleavage site allowed a bat CoV to gain the ability to infect humans. The furin cleavage site might have been acquired by recombination with another virus possessing that site, H5N1 : HA glycoprotein via Furin, including SCH004 Bat to Human entry Dr Wong, A Recipe for Next Generation Warfare
Gain-to-function research in microbiology is highly controversial since the risks it carries outweight any benefits in research goals, it needs to be banned. Humans have evolved for 6 million years with other species, zoonosis and species to species cross transmission is rare, since an animal virus rarely naturally pass to humans. Major human infectious diseases, including some now confined to humans and absent from animals, are ‘new’ ones that arose only after the origins of agriculture.
It is debatable species to species transmission is not very common but human interference for gain-to function research is making it more common, some say MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV were originally bat viruses that spread to an intermediate animal (camel and civet cat), however, govenment funding and human involvement in building these laboratory zoonotic chimeras is what makes this more dangerous, this is when it becomes biowarfare.
