Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated
Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation
of Its Probable Synthetic Route

Yan, Li-Meng; Kang, Shu; Guan, Jie; Hu, Shanchang

The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has
led to over 910,000 deaths worldwide and unprecedented decimation of
the global economy. Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of
SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial. The natural
origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support.
The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research
laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific
journals. Nonetheless, SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics
that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus. In
this report, we describe the genomic, structural, medical, and
literature evidence, which, when considered together, strongly
contradicts the natural origin theory. The evidence shows that
SARS-CoV-2 should be a laboratory product created by using bat
coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone.
Building upon the evidence, we further postulate a synthetic route for
SARS-CoV-2, demonstrating that the laboratory-creation of this
coronavirus is convenient and can be accomplished in approximately six
months. Our work emphasizes the need for an independent investigation
into the relevant research laboratories. It also argues for a critical
look into certain recently published data, which, albeit problematic,
was used to support and claim a natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. From a
public health perspective, these actions are necessary as knowledge of
the origin of SARS-CoV-2 and of how the virus entered the human
population are of pivotal importance in the fundamental control of the
COVID-19 pandemic as well as in preventing similar, future pandemics.
