Scientists have found that a section of the genetic material that makes up the COVID virus is the same as one that Moderna patented in February of 2016. The sequence is 19 base pairs long, meaning that there is only a one in three trillion chance that this happened naturally.
COVID is the only coronavirus of its type to carry 12 unique letters that allow its spike protein to be activated by a common enzyme called furin, which allows it to spread between human cells with ease.
If in fact the virus is engineered using genetic material that was patented by Moderna, this would explain how a vaccine was ready for market within months. They already knew how to vaccinate against it- it was their property.
