Researchers found positive test results, indicating prior exposure to the virus responsible for Covid-19, in samples from California, Oregon and Washington in mid-December, much earlier than the first official U.S. case on Jan. 19. Samples from Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin were also found to test positive for Covid-19 in January, before Covid-19 was believed to be presentTOPLINE Researchers, including scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Red Cross, have found evidence that Covid-19 was present in the U.S. in December 2019, weeks earlier than previously thought and before even the first cases in Wuhan, China, had been publicly identified. Findings from the study, which tested stored blood samples from between December 2019 and January 2020 for Covid-19 antibodies and were published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases, indicated the presence of Covid-19 in several U.S. states “earlier than previously recognized.”

https://www.europereloaded.com/coronavi ... ctor-says/It’s only in the US that all five strains can be found, according to the virologist and other researchers. China, for example, has been shown to have a different, more deadly strain to that found in both Taiwan and Korea. Italy and Iran have each been found to have different, independent strains, the Iranian being the most deadly. September 2019 is a logical time to look back to, given the infection Japanese tourists contracted in Hawaii. However, is that the earliest time the virus appeared?
In an interesting report for The Duran titled Coronavirus: The Plot Thickens, author Godfree Roberts constructs a timeline in which vaping was attributed as the source of unusual lung problems mimicking COVID-19 symptoms in the US as far back as April of last year (see the months of April and August):
April, 2019: An outbreak of severe vaping-associated lung illness is exclusively confined to the United States, despite the fact that the majority of vapers live outside the US.
July 3, 2019: The CDC halts research at Fort Detrick, citing “national security reasons” for not releasing information about its decision.
Nearly a year after doctors identified the first cases of a worrying new disease in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the country appears to be stepping up a campaign to question the origins of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
