Let's do some back-of-envelope calculations.
One pathogenic corona virus makes the jump from animal to humans every ten years.
Two pathogenic corona virii making the jump in the same year is a 1-in-a-hundred event.
Two pathogenic corona virii making the jump in the same three months is about 1-in-400. Let's not even attempt to compute the odds that they both centered on the same region in China.
While it is neither here-nor-there for my preps, those odds are evidence that there was a security breach at a biological weapons lab. Not proof; evidence.
The fact that there are two different strains also makes the fact that people are "recatching it" more understandable.
