US begins investigation into whether COVID-19 escaped from Wuhan lab

At this point, US officials are saying they have ruled out the possibility that the virus is a man-made bioweapon.

You cannot assume that because a bioweapon can be bred in a lab for “gain of function” and thus appear naturally evolved.

I say this because: 1) ruling out the virus as a bioweapon is not a good way to think; you can’t subtract a possibility like that at the outset of an investigation; and 2) I doubt they have ruled it out.

More on the US investigation here: US officials confirm full-scale investigation of whether coronavirus escaped from Wuhan lab.

I hate to say this, but we should also consider the possibility that a second, even a third, virus will be released.
