In a few weeks, as soon as the borders reopen, a French researcher will be going out to survvey the las wild forests of northern Thailand and laos, a «field» that he knows well from having done research on coronaviruses there for more han fifteen years. Meriadeg Le Gouil is a virologist, one of the best coronavirus specialists in France. In particular he discovered the European SARS on bats. this time his objective is to research the origine of SARS-CoV2 (the virus responsible for the disease Covid19) on the bats and small mammals wich inhanit the forest undergrowth on China’s southern borders. For while we still know little or nothing about tis new virus, the scientist, like most of his colleagues, is convinced that its origin is hidden somewhere in those forests.
A scientific invetigation led at full speed in view of the current situation, between the jungles of Laos, the top security laboratories of Europe and China and the stock farms around Wuhan.
Discovering this «missing link » between animal and man may perhaps allow us to reveal what China has so far kept silent, and what it wants to hide at all costs: the real causes of the emergence of this «Sars 2.0»
