did COVID-19 come from a lab?

Some people dismiss the lab-leak hypothesis while others look at the nature of the virus and conclude it must have been engineered. The case for that is strengthening.

WHO and Lancet Commission Chiefs Come Out In Support of Lab Leak Theory

World Health Organization (WHO) Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus reportedly admitted to a senior European politician that the virus that causes COVID-19 most likely came out of a Wuhan lab. The Daily Mail reports that Tedros made the admission citing a catastrophic lab accident.

The disclosure comes on the heels of a WHO investigative report that was published earlier this month, concluding that the pandemic may have started at a Wuhan lab and that Chinese authorities have been blocking access to crucial data.

At the same time, Jeffrey Sachs, leader of the Lancet Commission on COVID-19, now says that he is convinced that the pandemic started in a lab and that SARS-CoV-2 was created with the aid of U.S. biotechnology.

Sachs made his stunning admission last week at a conference in Spain where he had been invited by former Spanish prime minister José Luís Zapatero.

Of course, America is culpable, too: it was our Obama-era funding that helped the Wuhan lab. I don't think my country has fully reckoned with its own responsibility for the pandemic.
