I’ve maintained for months that ChinCOVID was in the US far earlier than the official general “wisdom,” and that the call for social distancing et al came far too late to doing any good.
We know from testing that people across the country had already developed ChinCOVID-specific antibodies by March, 2020.
Then the CDC decided that it was in the US by late January. But antibody testing in Ohio had already shown positives in in early January. And when they went back to check on a Washington state woman who had been hospitalized with what they retroactively recognized as ChinCOVID-type symptoms… Yep, positive for SARS-CoV-2 type antibodies. And that had to be community spread because she hadn’t traveled.
And now we have this:
Does This Study Shift the Covid-19 Narrative About When the Virus Was in the US?
“This study aimed to determine when the virus might have first appeared in the United States by using archived samples from routine blood donations collected by the Red Cross. The non-identifiable blood samples used in the study—from donors in nine states between Dec. 13, 2019 and Jan. 17, 2020.”
In the study of the blood samples, Covid-19 antibodies were detected in 84 donors on the west coast from Washington, Oregon, and California as early as December 13. Other samples were from donations made between late December to mid-January from six other states showing the antibodies — Iowa, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin. The key aspect is these were not showing positive viral activity but the presence of the anti-SARS CoV-2 antibodies, the virus causing Covid-19.
Seven to fourteen days to develop antibodies means these “cases” dated to no later than early December. And probably much earlier, if the people were at all symptomatic, because last time I donated, they wouldn’t accept blood from someone who was sick. But I’m no longer eligible to donate blood, so maybe that changed.
And please note the geographical distribution of those people: coast to coast. By December, ChinCOVID was everywhere. Very likely anyone who was sick was simply diagnosed as a cold or flu.
