Fauci dismisses theory that coronavirus was made in Chinese lab

Anthony Fauci dismissed theories that COVID-19 was man-made or released accidentally from a Chinese lab. In an interview, Fauci said that scientific evidence is ’very, very strongly leaning toward’ the conclusion that the virus originated in nature and jumped from animals to humans. He added that he doesn’t believe that ’someone brought the virus to a lab, and then it accidentally escaped.’

Fauci attempted to crush potential proding of what hes been funding over there in that wuhan lab.. ssounds like biden telling not to look at one archive but to look at the other. Because he knows for reasons.

Trump didn't say it was man made. He said he has evidence that it escaped from the lab in Wu-Han, where they were studying new 'novel' viruses in animals.

It’s a shame the piece lacks a summary because without one the headline author appears bias. It’s understandable that scientists can set the record straight in terms of whether the Coronavirus is or is not man made. What is far less clear is how they possess the absolute surety that the virus was not found in the wild, studied in a lab and then mistakenly or deliberately released. How can Fauci be so certain?

The virus is from China. That's undebatable. https://www.nature.com/articles/nm.3985 According to the paper published by Shi Zhengli in 2015, they have mastered the method of grafting and regulating S protein and E protein on coronavirus so that they can infect humans.

Fauci is worth $500 million. A lot for a doctor on $350k per year. Makes you wonder...

Pompeo and Trump are starting to sound like Bush and Cheney on WMDs. A convenient narrative to start trade wars and maybe more? Unnecessarily dangerous ideas.

Fauci misses the argument completly by saying "if it came from a lab then it came from batur, so what difference does it make?" Well the difference is in accountability, especially as it has been reported that the lab had very lax protocols. It also calls into question the ccp transparency, if it was in the lab and thwyhave samples that they aren't sharing.

Even if it wasn't created or accidentally leaked from a lab then it must've been because of their disgusting wet market but in the end it doesn't matter it's still China's fault and them and the Chinese health organization shouldn't have lied

The virus comes from horseshoe bats which don't live in that region. They came from a cave in another province to be studied in the lab in wuhan. The Chinese have discovered over 2000 different viruses. The lab is less than 300 yards from the wet market where they say it came from. Of course it came from the lab. I'm not saying it's man made, but it came from that lab.

There is a big difference between a virus being lab created and originating from a lab.

Again with the fake news. No one said it was created.

One thing that has always bothered me is the fact that, there is a very influential legal scholar, whose name is Richard Epstein, high up in Republican circles, and who Trump listens to. Richard Epstein has written many books, which give him status, however, he is an extremist. He wrote a book in 1992, called "Forbidden Ground" in which he tried to push for the repeal of antidiscrimation laws, going all the way back to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and made the case that employers should be able to hire and fire based on race. On March 16th of this year, Epstein, posted an article called "Coronavirus Perspective". His radical stance oppossing government involvement and shutdowns, is not an ideological perspective, but a heterodox theory of biology that is fukking nuts! In a nutshell, he believed that only 500 Americans would die from this coronavirus, that the virus would weaken, and, GUESS WHAT, (oops, you guessed it), disappear. Its all a smoke screen because Trump screwed the pooch, so bad, that it fell on its back, sighed "no more" and died.
