New Study Found COVID Is ‘Best Adapted To Attack Human Cells’
June 29, 2021
The scientists from Flinders University and La Trobe used powerful computers to model the protein receptors in a number of animal species to see how the coronavirus’s spike protein attached itself to them.
The computer modelling found the virus’s ability to bind to the bat’s ACE2 receptor was poor relative to its ability to bind human cells. This against the virus being transmitted directly from bats to humans.
The findings will add weight to the increasingly repeated charge that the coronavirus escaped the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology in an accident involving the “gain of function” research.
