I do not want to spread any fear nor cause alarm and I am also no the biggest fan of Ted Talks, but, as my area is starting to quarantine I thought I might be helpful and post this: It is not terrible. Plus youtube has a constant link to the USA CDC up(it should dynamically show up in the bottom left hand corner when you access the site via PC.) Good article: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-020-0820-9 It is a good read but two aspects are important. The first: " Theories of SARS-CoV-2 origins It is improbable that SARS-CoV-2 emerged through laboratory manipulation of a related SARS-CoV-like coronavirus. As noted above, the RBD of SARS-CoV-2 is optimized for binding to human ACE2 with an efficient solution different from those previously predicted7,11. Furthermore, if genetic manipulation had been performed, one of the several reverse-genetic systems available for betacoronaviruses would probably have been used19. However, the genetic data irrefutably show that SARS-CoV-2 is not derived from any previously used virus backbone20. Instead, we propose two scenarios that can plausibly explain the origin of SARS-CoV-2: (i) natural selection in an animal host before zoonotic transfer; and (ii) natural selection in humans following zoonotic transfer. We also discuss whether selection during passage could have given rise to SARS-CoV-2." <- as noted by @geostar1024 and the second: " Conclusions In the midst of the global COVID-19 public-health emergency, it is reasonable to wonder why the origins of the pandemic matter. Detailed understanding of how an animal virus jumped species boundaries to infect humans so productively will help in the prevention of future zoonotic events. For example, if SARS-CoV-2 pre-adapted in another animal species, then there is the risk of future re-emergence events. In contrast, if the adaptive process occurred in humans, then even if repeated zoonotic transfers occur, they are unlikely to take off without the same series of mutations. In addition, identifying the closest viral relatives of SARS-CoV-2 circulating in animals will greatly assist studies of viral function." With respect to Masks, please send them to the nearest Health unit that needs them unless you are a organ recipient or have a direct need. The masks I am referring to are the N95 and above type.
