COVID in deer

I read about COVID in deer a few months ago, there have been a few studies already. It’s definitely interesting.

How did they get it ?Some infected hunter got too close?I bet that it's a variant of something that deer have always had or it's not true.
The zombie apocalypse can now begin. Deer have now possibly infected a human with COVID. From the not yet peer reviewed paper, "Phylogenetic analysis revealed an epidemiologically linked human case from the same geographic region and sampling period. Together, our findings represent the first evidence of a highly divergent lineage of SARS-CoV-2 in white-tailed deer and of deer-to-human transmission."

Saw a report on Fox News that a portion of a gene sequence patented by Moderna in 2017 has been found in Covid. How you suppose that happened?
