Researcher Jesse D. Bloom has apparently recovered a “deleted set of #SARSCoV2 sequences that provide additional information about viruses from the early Wuhan outbreak”:

You can read his entire thread here, but in summary: “The Chinese deleted early sequences that lead away from the Wuhan market” and “This researcher uncovered them”

1. Wuhan University deleted SARS2 data relating to early cases
2. @jbloom_lab recovered the data
3. Identified virus sequences that could precede the official "first" SARS2 sequence from China
4. Analysis suggests SARS2 was circulating in Wuhan before Huanan seafood market https://t.co/I8xRdqpMh1

Shouldn’t this be bigger news?
Why isn’t this not the biggest tweet in the world right now ? https://t.co/kfQ3A98CxQ

This deleted data shows that “the coronavirus was probably circulating in Wuhan before the Huanan Seafood market outbreak”:
Jesse Bloom @jbloom_lab has found genetic evidence that the coronavirus was probably circulating in Wuhan before the Huanan Seafood market outbreak. And he's also found that someone tried to cover it up. https://t.co/uhzEsIXQhh

These were “samples that were previously deleted by researchers at Wuhan University:

Yes, “why would anybody do that?”
Vital genomic information from wuhan university that may exonerate the huanan seafood market was deliberately deleted, it seems.
Why would anybody do that?
The truth will emerge eventually. https://t.co/P3Ys0b5sdd

And we have questions for the NIH, too:
China not forthcoming with early sequencing data from SARS Cov 2, obscuring origin, with assistance from National Institutes of Health. Now there are some serious molecular Sherlock Holmes on the case. https://t.co/fUHabZKVuL

China right now: OOF!
