Covid origin theory blown open as China stockpiled West’s PPE ‘months’ before outbreak | Science | News

This comes as a report last month, carried out over two years and published by the Lancet Commission, showed it was possible the virus leaked out of the laboratory incident into the hands of US researchers.

While we accept that the virus could have arisen via a number of different scenarios, the report does not rule out the possibility that it could have been the result of a laboratory incident at the hands of US researchers.

Noting that “independent researchers have not yet examined” the US labs, it warns that the National Institutes of Health has “refused to disclose details” of the work they have done.

Matt Ridley, the co-author of ‘Viral: The search for the origin of Covid-19’, told “The Lancet Commission has done a thorough job and its conclusions are devastating: that no independent, transparent and science-based investigation of the origin of the pandemic has been carried out and that the laboratory records and databases of relevant institutions in Wuhan and New York be made public.”

He added: “It is also right to point out that poor enforcement of biosafety protocols opens up the possibility that a laboratory leak was responsible. Almost three years after the start of a pandemic that has killed perhaps 20 million people, the world deserves greater transparency.”
