Viruses rain constantly down through our atmosphere and provide the source of epidemic and pandemic disease, as well as genetic contributions. While this idea is controversial to the point of censorship, I read an interesting paper this morning from ‘The Cosmic Tusk’. There is good reason to suspect a cosmic vector for the Coronavirus.
A recent paper by Huang and Cohen in ‘Science’ highlights many unusual aspects of the outbreak of nCoV-2019 [Coronavirus]. The evidence demonstrates that many cases of disease – about 30% – rose in locations unconnected with the Wuhan seafood and meat market.
Phlogenetic analyses of the virus sequences show little variation that indicated a low mutation rate. This fact combined with epidemiological data points to little or no human-to-human transmission thus far; this conclusion was at the writing of the original article, February 3, 2020. This reference report is from the Australian Department of Health, “in any case current data suggest that the human to human spread rate is unusually low and may be dependent on proximity and dose of virus delivered at very close quarters, rendering a death rate of three percent of infected people.” The interesting words here are ‘dose’ and ‘delivered’. Who or what is delivering dosage to the population?
In the case of the current coronavirus pandemic in China, it is interesting to note that an exceptionally bright fireball event was seen on October 11, 2019, over Sonjyan City in the Jilin province of NE China. It is tempting to speculate that this event had a crucial role to play in what is now unfolding throughout the world.
If a fragment of a loosely held carbonaceous meteorite carrying a cargo of viruses/bacteria entered the mesosphere and stratosphere at high speed, its inner core which survived would have been dispersed. The ‘fall time’ through the atmosphere could range from a few months to well over a year. Because dispersal at ground level depends on meteorology and precipitation, the deposition of a virus at ground level could be patchy.
The possible link of sunspots with pandemics has been discussed over many years and is worthy of comments. The article goes on to refer to sunspot frequency and cycles, magnetic fields, and electrically charged bacteria.
And you wondered why there is a Space Force being created in Washington D.C.
