There's an idea circulating around the epidemic minimizer and conspiracy theorist milieus, that the coronavirus, SARC-CoV-2 also called the COVID-19 virus, was lab-made, or that the vaccine already exists.
They state that patents exist for the virus, that they are "patented", implying that the virus was manufactured. Some suggest that Bill Gates has a patent for a vaccine, perhaps because he's associated with a vaccination project.
The patents are for gene sequences from the coronavirus that caused the SARS epidemic, and attenuated coronavirii for SARS and for avian infectious bronchitis virus. Attenuated virus is a weakened virus, that is used in a vaccine.
The patents I found referenced were:
US Patent Number 10,130,701
US Patent Number US7220852B1
US Patent Number US20170216427A1
All we learn from these patents is that gene sequences are patentable, and weakened viruses are patentable.
