The Daily Mail reports that the British Government no longer discounts the theory that the COVID-19 virus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. But they still hold that the balance of scientific advice (i.e. majority of scientific opinion) is that the illness was transmitted to humans from animals at a Wuhan, China live animal market.
The claim that COVID-19 originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology is certainly plausible, but has only been alleged by one source and, so far, no other proof supporting the assertion has been found. China has also tried to refute such allegations using their usual propaganda venues such as the South China Morning Post.
Such declarations that the coronavirus is man-made are possible because the Wuhan lab does actually exist and has a biological weapons section. But in order for it to be true, proof independent of but confirming the original allegation must be uncovered. However, it is absolutely certain that China lied to us and the world about the Covid-19 outbreak. The Chinese regime refused our help, would not give any information about the virus and Chinese Premier, Xi Jinping, even allowed millions of Chinese citizens (most from Wuhan) to leave China so they could travel abroad.
It is also plausible that China weaponized the virus when Xi Jinping permitted infected Chinese people to travel overseas, but we may never know. Ultimately and in the end, the COVID-19 outbreak, deaths, and economic devastation that have resulted from it, are all China’s fault.
