Minerva has uploaded a version of the controversial article that claims the coronavirus is not natural in origin.
In the article “The Evidence which Suggests that This Is No Naturally Evolved Virus” by Sørensen, Dalgleish and Susrud, uploaded by Minerva today, Sørensen and his co-authors present several arguments for why they consider a non-natural origin for the novel coronavirus to be the most logical explanation on how the virus evolved.
It is observations on the spike protein of the Sars-Cov-2 virus that leads Sørensen and his co-authors to believe that the virus has originated in a laboratory.
“There are several factors that point towards this”, Sørensen told Minerva in an interview last week. “Firstly, this part of the virus is very stable; it mutates very little. That points to this virus as a fully developed, almost perfected virus for infecting humans.
