It's for making a vaccine for a specific coronavirus that infects birds, so probably not directly useful with the current China outbreak, but the technique might be worth trying.

Ah, you found this on InfoWars, didn't you?  "Is Coronavirus A Manmade Depopulation Weapon?"

Did you see this sentence in the patent?

--- Quote ---Coronaviruses are believed to cause a significant percentage of all common colds in human adults.

Look here:

ViPR (Virus Pathogen Resource): Coronaviridae Data Summary

There are 1039 identified species of Coronavirus (so far), broken down further into 26,966 strains.

Here's a summary, from the patent you linked:

--- Quote ---Coronaviruses are divided into four groups, as shown below:

            Canine coronavirus (CCoV)
            Feline coronavirus (FeCoV)
            Human coronavirus 229E (HCoV-229E)
            Porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus (PEDV)
            Transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV)
            Human Coronavirus NL63 (NL or New Haven)
            Bovine coronavirus (BCoV)
            Canine respiratory coronavirus (CRCoV)—Common in SE Asia and Micronesia
            Human coronavirus OC43 (HCoV-OC43)
            Mouse hepatitis virus (MHV)
            Porcine haemagglutinating encephalomyelitis virus (HEV)
            Rat coronavirus (Roy). Rat Coronavirus is quite prevalent in Eastern Australia where, as of March/April 2008, it has been found among native and feral rodent colonies.
            (No common name as of yet) (HCoV-HKU1)
            Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV)
            Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV)
            Infectious bronchitis virus (IBV)
            Turkey coronavirus (Bluecomb disease virus)
            Pheasant coronavirus
            Guinea fowl coronavirus
            Bulbul coronavirus (BuCoV)
            Thrush coronavirus (ThCoV)
            Munia coronavirus (MuCoV)
            Porcine coronavirus (PorCov) HKU15

The patent is concerned with avian Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV), which is in the Gamma group.

The new Chinese virus, 2019-nCoV, is in the Beta group, so it is not closely related to IBV.

Therefore, this patent has nothing whatsoever to do with any alleged manmade source of 2019-nCoV.  The actual source of the virus has already been traced to animal sources, the infected people were exposed to those animal sources, so there is no reason to invent a "depopulation weapon" conspiracy to explain it.

Apparently there are 35 million Chinese subject to travel restrictions. And hospitals in those zones are running out of supplies and staff and full of freaked out patients with fevers.

There’s a possible second US case with recent travel from Wuhan being worked up in Texas.

And 10 possibles are isolated in California awaiting lab confirmation.
