Biosecurity expert helping Government to prevent future pandemics claims ministers consider leak as most likely origin of Covid pandemic

A lab leak in Wuhan, China, is now considered the most likely origin of the Covid pandemic “behind closed doors” in the Government, it has been claimed, after Boris Johnson signalled that security measures would be enhanced to prevent accidental escape.

On Monday, the Prime Minister told the House of Commons that the UK biosecurity strategy would be refreshed to protect against “natural zoonosis and laboratory leaks”, in a public acknowledgement of the threat from insecure research facilities.

There is mounting suspicion that Covid-19 leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology which had been collecting and experimenting on dangerous bat coronaviruses in the years before the virus first emerged in the city.
The lab leak theory is currently the leading theory for the emergence of covid-19 in the UK. This is an interesting position considering such claims were previously banned on some social media platforms. There is no certainty with this theory, but it is interesting how people are hiding this from the public perception to placate China for whatever reason.

Right-wingers, once again, more concerned with being amateur detectives about the origins of Covid-19 so they can China-scare, than with taking any mitigation measures against it killing people. Why do y'all care so much? Half of you pretend it isn't even real anyway.
