Omicron variants may have been artificially synthesized rather than naturally formed

Omicron variants may have been artificially synthesized rather than naturally formed

The formation of part of the Omicron isolates BA.1, BA.1.1, and BA.2 was not the result of genome evolution as is common in nature. The authors emphasized that the SARS-CoV-2 isolates are formed by a completely new mechanism that cannot be explained by previous biology and that it is highly unlikely that these viruses arose spontaneously.
