Why Covid-19 is not man made

In the midst of a horrific pandemic, there are still people who claim that this coronavirus was man-made. Here are the facts:

Zoonosis is the phenomenon where diseases or infections are transmitted from animals to humans.

Most animals (and humans) are carriers of harmful germs such as bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses.

It is estimated that almost 60% of all human diseases are zoonotic in nature. Before hygienic conditions were applied in towns and cities, these diseases, such as tuberculosis, bubonic plague and glandular fever, caused the deaths of millions of people. Let’s take a look at some of the more well-known zoonotic transmissions.


We are all familiar with this horrible viral disease, which is transmitted through the bite of a rabid animal.

Lyme disease

Commonly known in America, this form of tick fever is very common.

Dengue, malaria and Chikungunya

Known from especially the tropics, but these mosquito pests are becoming more common as climate change expands the original nuclei to more temperate areas.


Derived from reptiles, amphibians and chicks or ducklings.

E. coli

Commonly known as food poisoning, it occurs where food is not handled hygienically.


Originating from chewing birds, this bacterium lives in the feathers, secretions and droppings of even common of chewing birds.


Derived from the great apes that were hunted for food.

Other zoonotic diseases: anthrax, bird flu, brucellosis, Ebola, West Nile fever, histoplasmosis and swine flu.

Among the main carriers of these diseases are mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and bed bugs.

It is now important, for everyone, to understand the nature of this disease, and to believe the science if it is clearly proven that Covid-19 is a zoonotic disease, originating from a so-called “wet market” in Wuhan, China .

In time, science will explain the exact source and first transmission, but all evidence suggests that it comes from fruit bats (exactly as with Ebola) offered as food in this market.

Killing this virus as man-made is reckless, leaving the back door open for the next pandemic, which will make Covid-19 look like children’s games.
