A very credible voice spoke out about the likelihood that COVID-19 originated in a lab. Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former FDA commissioner from 2017-2019  told CBS news he’s most certainly on the side that believes there’s no chance it come from a wet market. 

“The challenge is that the side of the ledger that suggests that this could have come out of a lab has continued to expand.

“And a side of the ledger that suggests that this could have come from a zoonotic source, come out of nature, really hasn’t budged.”

The mainstream media and numerous Democrats have flipped, and after dismissing the theory of the virus coming out of a lab and filing it away as a fringe conspiracy, the building belief is it leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 

The answers according to Gottlieb are all in China. The Chinese government could provide evidence like blood samples of the lab technicians who fell ill.  They could also share original source strains and early samples of the virus. 

‘We may never really determine with precision whether or not this came out of a lab,’ he said.

“I think what we’re likely to end up with is an assessment, a probability, unless we get very lucky and we either find the intermediate host, we find a colony of civet cats or pangolins where this is epidemic and it could have first spilled over into humans, or we have a whistleblower in China or regime change, which we’re not going to have.

“I don’t know that we’re going to find out with certainty that this came out of a lab.”
