It’s nice to see that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) agrees with me on the origins of the 2019-nCoV coronavirus in China. Once again, the xenophobic “conspiracy theorists” like Sen. Cotton and myself have been proven to be accurate, while the official narrative about the coronavirus was a complete fiction. Sen. Cotton is now demanding answers from China in regard to the secretive bioweapon laboratory located 280 meters away from the Wuhan bat soup market where the coronavirus “officially” originated.
Two other kooky conspiracy theorists (at least, that’s how social media companies will now have to label them) who agree with me are Dr. Michael Letko and Dr. Vincent Muster. Those two conspiracy cranks think there seems to be a genetic component to the coronavirus that makes people of certain races more susceptible to catching and dying from the bug. Quacks!
Who are they?
Oh, just two of the top virologists in the world who work in the National Institutes of Allergies and Infectious Disease laboratory. I’ll try to explain their findings in layman’s terms, and what it means for you in terms of your genetic background and the likelihood of catching a serious case of coronavirus in a moment. But first, social media companies are cracking down on “misinformation” about the coronavirus, such as the ‘conspiracy theory’ that it is a bioweapon or that it has a racial component to it. To avoid being accused of spreading conspiracy theories, here is my new idea for a “movie script.”
In this movie idea of mine, let’s say that there is an evil, communist government which strongly believes that the people of its nation are racially superior to all other peoples in the world, and therefore, they are the rightful rulers of earth. I shall call this fictitious nation… “China.” As part of their plan to rule the world, my fictitious Chinese government sets out to create a dangerous biological weapon – a deadly virus that will target and kill people based on their genetic and racial backgrounds. This virus would primarily kill non-Chinese people, while Chinese citizens would get a mild case of the sniffles from it at worst.
In order to carry out this plan in my movie script, the fictitious Chinese government would have to go through a two-step process to create such a bioweapon. For Step 1, they would have to develop a virus that would have a higher likelihood of killing Chinese people while leaving other races in less danger. For Step 2, they would have re-engineer that virus so that Chinese people are genetically immune to it, while making the virus more fatal to non-Chinese.
In my fictitious movie script, China successfully gets through Step 1. They create a virus that genetically attacks people of Chinese ancestry, which doesn’t make people of other races as sick. But then, oopsie! Plot twist! Due to the incompetence of the fictitious communist Chinese government in my movie script, the virus accidentally gets out before it is mutated to protect the Chinese. The commies have unleashed a bioweapon that genetically targets their own people.
I’m thinking maybe Denzel Washington or Keanu Reeves could play the heroic doctor who finds the cure in the third act in my fictitious movie script, which is totally not what I think really happened in any real place and certainly not in the secret bioweapon lab in Wuhan.
Now, to the findings of Drs. Letko and Muster, which is really why you’re here. Keep in mind that this research is brand new and has not been peer-reviewed yet. But according to their findings, the 2019-nCoV coronavirus is behaving much like SARS and earlier versions of barnyard flus that always seem to pop up near China’s secret and super-competent labs. People with high concentrations of the ACE2 enzyme in their systems are much more susceptible to this coronavirus, while people with lower concentrations of this enzyme are both less likely to catch it, and less likely to die from it.
These ACE2 enzymes are primarily located in the internal organs of people, with the highest concentrations in the nasal and oral mucosa (your mouth and nose) and the lungs. The coronavirus attaches itself to ACE2 enzymes to attack the immune system.
How do you know whether you have large concentrations of ACE2 enzymes? Your racial background plays a huge role in it.
According to the 1000 Genome Project, Asians have the highest concentrations of ACE2 enzymes in their lungs and mucosal membranes, especially Chinese men. People of other races have lesser concentrations of ACE2, with people of European ancestry having the lowest concentrations.
Based on those genetic findings, they’ve determined that people of Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese ancestry have a 90 to 99% High Risk susceptibility to coronavirus if they are exposed to it. Their symptoms will also be much worse, because the ACE2 enzymes give the virus more targets to attach to. Southeast Asians overall have a 70 to 79% susceptibility to 2019-nCoV, according to the findings.
Hispanics from Mexico and all nations south of America down to Peru are in the 70 to 79% Moderate to High Risk category. American Indians, Africans and Puerto Ricans are estimated to be in the Medium Risk category of 60 to 69%. People of European ancestry and Caucasians in general are in the Low to Medium Risk category of 50 to 59%. The people with the lowest genetic concentrations of ACE2 enzymes, and therefore the lowest risk of catching coronavirus or experiencing bad symptoms from it, are white women of European ancestry.
According to these new findings, the lower down the list you are on the Risk categories, the less likely you are to catch the coronavirus in the first place – and the less likely it is to cause serious illness or death.
Again: These are the preliminary findings of the two leading virologists at the nation’s Infectious Disease Laboratory. Don’t blame me for this, I’m just sharing the facts with you.
Keep in mind that regardless of your racial background, people with compromised immune systems such as children and the elderly, will likely still be more susceptible to it, as will smokers.
The death rate from coronavirus sufferers to date is somewhere between 2 and 3% — which is pretty high. But the most serious cases and all of the deaths we’re aware of have been among Chinese people, who have the highest concentrations of the ACE2 enzyme. An elderly man from Utah who caught it on a cruise ship had a pretty bad fever but seems to be recovering now. An American woman named Rebecca Frasure caught it on the Princess Cruise ship and was quarantined for more than two weeks – and she never developed any symptoms.
She didn’t even get the sniffles from it, while her husband who was on the cruise with her didn’t catch it all. White Europeans who have caught it have likewise experienced full recoveries with minimal symptoms, such as the group of German auto plant workers who caught it from a Chinese co-worker.
It looks like China is going to have a lot of explaining to do to the rest of the world after this virus runs its course. Not that I ever expect them to tell us the truth.
