Yes I can produce evidence Michael, but as your question is presented in a way that suggests any statement not backed up by a link to “evidence” must be fake news I consider it a troll response that does not deserve my attention. You want evidence, you fact check my statement, the evidence is out there and an intelligent person should not need more than a minute to find it.
So have you any evidence that it is “fake news”.
In fact it cannot be classed as news of any kind as it has been in the public domain for over six weeks.
Anyone genuinely interested in learning more rather than trolling attempts to promote intelligent discussion of the topic would to well to look in an Elsevier published, peer reviewed journal title Antiviral Research) Vol 16, April 2020 for an article titled “The spike glycoprotein of the new coronavirus 2019-nCoV contains a furin-like cleavage site absent in CoV of the same clade.”
I’ll warn you it’s not light, bedtime reading, I had to spend a lot of time with a scientific dictionary when I reported it at the beginning of this month. For most readers this article in Biological Weapons News, though not a primary source, will suffice to show my claim is rock solid.
