I came across this CNN article. So what? The west no longer wanna blame China for the origin of Covid-19?
The studies are updated versions of the ones published in February.

However, conspiracists keep asking: but...but...but, what animal/human brought the SARS-CoV-2 to the wet market? Completely forgetting that the search for the original nature reservoir of SARS-CoV-1 lasted more than a decade.

On the other hand, all SARS-CoV probably has a zoonotic origin.

Researchers invent accurate rapid COVID-19 antibody level test​


Vaccines have become the most important weapon in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, but antibody levels after vaccination decay quickly over time. Therefore, an accurate and affordable antibody rapid test is urgently needed to adjust the revaccination strategy. A research team led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) recently invented an accurate rapid-testing device that can quantify and display the antibody level as a length of a visual bar, like a mercury thermometer, in as few as 20 minutes, enabling convenient mass screening or individual monitoring of immune protection against COVID-19.

The antibody level is a potent correlate of immune protection against virus infection, but it varies, depending on the vaccine type, and can decay rapidly. In the post-vaccine era, with the rise of the Omicron variants, it is critical to monitor

in a fast, cost-effective way, which can help provide an alert about the necessity for revaccination. However, existing antibody testing methods are either only for positive/negative results (like rapid antigen tests) or require equipment in professional laboratories or hospitals for quantification, which is expensive, time-consuming and impractical for routine tests.

Hmmmm seems to be getting a bit deadlier this time.

The more deadly, the less it can spread. Coronavirus 229E spreads like wildfire because it is not deadly. The most deadly coronavirus MERS hardly spreads at all. SARS is not as deadly as MERS and spreads easier. SARS 2 is not as deadly as SARS and spreads easier. Omicron is almost as mild as 229E and spreads like wildfire.
