Important naming clarification that was not clear in this video: The virus itself is called SARS-CoV-2, and the disease that it causes is called COVID-19. I will reiterate this in the livestream to try and keep everything straight.

I’d love to hear about your experience with PCR, and it’s application with covid
I would also like to hear about Covids sequencing, infection clusters and tracing transmission. Also any mutations that are present.

Just got back here from the live stream. ​Thanks again for the videos! How did we isolate COVID-19 virus when it was done for the first time when the test kits for this virus were absent?

What causes the rapid mutation?

Dispute over Italy Patient zero
There is a discussion ongoing whether it was one of the early German patients (Webasto-company members) who brought the virus to Italy. US geneticists say so, but other experts are more sceptical. They say, the genetic variations of covid-19 found in Italy do not match with the so called Webasto-hypothesis. What do you think as an independet geneticist?

Why this is rna virus when it's genome contains thyamine ? Is than pseudo uracil ?

What is the role of slow di codon in cov2 virulence

I'm a Bsc student and after hearing about this virus from everyone around me I have a curiosity to know about this virus. So can you please explain me the structure of this virus and the mechanism about how it works. 🤓

The cringey part of this is the acquiescence to the notion that this virus is natural and zoonotic. I watched that molyneux interview that mentioned copypasta gene insertions strongly implying human ‘geneticists’ [super cringe] had at some point tampered with a strain of the sars virus.

Thank you for this video, Alex. Added it to my little 24-hr heath channel, ( truestrangenews.com/24-hr-health-channel/). Q: For any geneticist: What is the world population breakdown of common polymorphisms of ACE2? One SNP is rs2106809. ( https://www.snpedia.com/index.php/Rs2106809 ) and 23andme lists 13 others. If we knew this, could we start to ask other questions like: "Do genetic differences in ACE2 result in more vulnerability to the Covid-19 causing virus?" and "Can those of us who had done the 23andme thing determine our vulnerability to the virus in this way?" The more we know, the better we can feel that we are doing all we can to fight this. Update: found this ( https://www.nature.com/articles/s41421-020-0147-1 )

Hi – id love to hear more about host interaction / genetic differences in inflammatory host response

Naima Jain · March 26, 2020 at 1:38 am

How true? That if we eat more protein. It can cause virus to be active in our body?

Jude Francisco · March 26, 2020 at 2:38 am

Keep up the good work Alex. All of your videos are informative. Please don't stop creating amazing videos.

Where did you go to school?
Ever work in a p4 lab?
What work have you done in gene editing?
Gain of function work with viral or bacterial pathogens?

Or worked p 3 labs? And in what universities or private labs?

nice explaination mam.
