Abstract
<p>DESCRIPTION</p> <p>Sequences identified as Influenza A virus, Spodoptera frugiperda rhabdovirus and Nipah henipavirus have been previously identified within the early HiSeq 1000 and HiSeq 3000 sequencing data of SARS-CoV-2, SRR11092059,SRR11092060,SRR11092061 and SRR11092062, and were being used to support the hypothesis that a &quot;simultaneous outbreak of multiple zoonotic viruses&quot; have happened in the Huanan Seafood market. https://doi.org/10.31219/osf.io/s4td6</p> <p>However, a closer examination of these sequences revealed that they were not sequences of actual wild viruses, but were in stead fragments left behind from PCR products and cloning vect...
