Who do you believe?
Do you believe Anthony Fauci or Robert Redfield? We’ve discussed both the zoonotic and lab leak origin scenarios. We have also been careful not to rule out two other less likely, but still plausible possibilities: zoonotic origin + lab leak which involves a lab worker who was directly infected by a bat or some kind of Deep State release of COVID as part of a destabilization op against China.
The China hawks are invested in the lab leak theory. The Chinese government is invested in the zoonotic origin or Deep State release theory. The American public health establishment is invested in the zoonotic origin theory. Wall Street and Corporate America are invested in the zoonotic origin theory. Someone is on the wrong side of this debate. Redfield is correct that science will eventually figure it out.
It goes without saying that the answer to this question has enormous implications. If any of the three lab leak scenarios turn out to be true, it will roil the world one way or the other.
Note: Just from my own perspective, it is a remarkable coincidence that this happened in the midst of a geopolitical flashpoint. The story immediately before COVID was rising tensions.
