Isn't that what epidemiologists do?  Chinese scientists have been researching all sorts of viruses for years (e.g. SARS outbreak - 2002), as have WHO and CDC, as well as countless universities and pharmaceutical companies all over the world.  Whether or not a government is trying to weaponize that research is another matter.
 

There is no need for nefarious deeds beyond just the usual refusal to abstain from eating things that will kill us and the cultural fascination with exotic boner pills. I just got this from the library:

It's not as advertised regarding younger, healthy adults.  My 39 year-old cousin, mother of 2, generally very healthy had been dealing with shortness of breath for over a week was turned away the other day from a testing site...didn't meet CDC guidelines they said.  A friend of hers from high school (male, same age, healthy) was told by his doctor not to waste his time in line...they wouldn't test him.

"anybody who wants a test can get one...and the tests are beautiful" - March 6

Now...as she (thankfully...we assume) recovers, she doesn't know if she had it.  The test is no longer valid, so she needs the antibody test.  These issues aren't being addressed fast enough for anyone to believe it'll be "under control" soon.  

When people in the eye of the storm (NYC) stand side by side to see the arrival of a hospital ship, while others can't even be tested across that same body of water, we're in serious trouble.

 Pictures like this tell me the situation is going to get much, much worse. The one thing experts tell us can help stop slow this thing, but people just ignore it.

Worse, every press confab seems to have lots of people standing around in close proximity. If our leaders* can't be bothered to follow the rules, it kind of undermines the message, no?

My point is if you lack the critical thinking skills to figure this out and have to rely on our leaders to tell or show you what to do, so be it.  I certainly can't help you. I have never taken much stock in what our leaders say or do, I certainly do not intend on doing this now.  Edit:  This is the generic "you" not you personally.

Well, given what has just happened, isn't that f-ing obvious?  (Excuse my French) And they weren't the only ones researching it. Check this out from 2015.

I thought it was pretty much down to a lab worker was pinching dead infected testing bats from the lab and selling them in the local "wet" market,"thinking" that there was no risk to humans by eating them.  The bats are a delicacy there and fetch some bucks.

It was the first thing I heard about the source, the "wet" market, way back very early on.  Cross contamination with other feral animals in unsanitary conditions.  Then you never heard about it again.  Evidently just acknowledging that this kind of market still exists was an embarrassment to the Chinese government.  More often than not in stories too weird to be true, the first reports are trueist, then the cover up begins.  Feel free to call me crazy, but it's my story and I'm sticking to it ...

Interview with experts (including Lipsitch - again!!  busy man) about whether the virus will be seasonal or not (among other things)

Lipsitch: If our strategy is to use social distancing as our main control measure because we haven’t figured out anything better, then the best way to do it is to distance until we bring cases down to low enough levels that we can let transmission resume by relaxing social distancing, and have several weeks or months where we don’t overwhelm the healthcare system.

And then we distance again, and repeat the cycle. With each cycle, we’ll get more time off social distancing, because the buildup of immunity in the population helps to slow the spread. So you don’t get to the dangerous peak as quickly.

That [scenario] will be destructive to the economy, to education, and all sorts of things. But as a means of trying to preserve the healthcare system, if we don’t have another approach, it may be our best option.

I want to be clear: as an epidemiologist, I’m saying what I think existing tools make possible for the purposes of disease control, and not what I think is socially desirable. Multiple rounds of social distancing are not something I look forward to
