Particularly in light of documented proof of concept research being conducted elsewhere, since 2015, into the recombination of coronavirus fragments into chimeras:
"What if the research community hadn’t bet all its marbles on the next pandemic coming from a flu instead of a version of the coronavirus?

"What if NIH or other agencies had funded research into the efficacy of drugs like chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, remdesivir, and HIV cocktails that had shown promise against coronavirus dating back to 2003?

"What if more pressure had been applied by the medical governance world to develop vaccines aimed at coronavirus?

"What if the medical community had simply adjusted its outdated modeling that predicted coronavirus would spread slowly and could be contained to account for the massive growth in global air travel the last decade that transported this virus from China to the West in treacherously fast time?"

What if what if what if. Okay, what if we had the same response to the SARS virus in 2003 that stopped a near pandemic then? I don't think you can predict what virus will cause a pandemic, but you can a level of preparedness that stops it before something like this happens. Proper protocols are what's needed, not a guessing game of which virus will undo us. We had the proper protocols in 2003 with SARS CoV. What happened this time?
