While the news is filled with dire warnings about the Coronavirus outbreak in China which has resulted in scaling-back the Chinese New Year celebration and the total quarantining of at least one major city, the question remains: how does this new outbreak relate to existing coronaviruses, namely SARS and MEARS?
Did this new version really start in China, or, as some have stated, is it a "weaponized" virus unleashed upon the world?
Let's start with the Patent. Yes there is a Coronavirus Patent.  The US government owns it. It was issued to the CDC in 2007.
Here is some of what it says:
"Disclosed herein is a newly isolated human coronavirus (SARS-CoV), the causative agent of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). Also provided are the nucleic acid sequence of the SARS-CoV genome and the amino acid sequences of the SARS-CoV open reading frames, as well as methods of using these molecules to detect a SARS-CoV and detect infections therewith. Immune stimulatory compositions are also provided, along with methods of their use... Without wishing to be bound by a specific theory, it is believed that an immunogenic response may arise from the generation of an antibody specific to one or more of the epitopes provided in the immune stimulatory composition. Alternatively, the response may comprise a T-helper or cytotoxic cell-based response to one or more of the epitopes provided in the immune stimulatory composition. All three of these responses may originate from naïve or memory cells. One specific example of a type of immune stimulatory composition is a vaccine."
Some researchers see a deep connection between this new CoV viral expression and the potential for weaponization. For example, Sharry Edwards, MEd, has analysized the China CoV and found markers that suggest weaponization. The frequencies related to the new CoV are too "regular" and suggest something other than a natural source of mutation.
"Director of Institute of BioAcoustic Biology, Sharry Edwards.. share[s] the Institute's analysis of the Coronavirus currently sweeping through China... She explains how her research shows that this latest virus and many of the flu strands have characteristics pointing to a bioweapon versus a natural phenomena..." 
The CDC's approach is "stimulating the immune system" (sic) through vaccines. Ms. Edwards discusses the relationship between cell membranes and viral penetration, suggesting energetic and nutritional approaches. She views the frequencies associated with the CoV and finds that they are not what one might expect from a virus developing naturally.
Here is what Rima Laibow, MD tells us about stimulating the immune system to keep the natural microbiome in balance: "The best way to protect yourself from potentially pandemic viruses, whether occurring naturally or weaponized, is to support your natural immunity to viral replication. If a virus cannot penetrate cell membranes, it cannot replicate and cause symptoms. The best way I know to support natural cell membrane integrity is to supplement with Nano Silver 10 PPM. In a US government-sponsored study declassified in 2009 it was shown that, in living human cell samples, various viruses did not penetrate the cell membraines the presence of Nano Silver 10 PPM." 
Natural virus? Weaponized virus? USA Patents? Do your own research and pay attention to this latest outbreak.
It's all about YOUR immune system!
