A rigorous Bayesian analysis, by eminent scientist Dr Steven Quay, concludes that, with a 99.8% probability, the China virus originated in a laboratory. It did not jump from some other animal in what is termed zoonosis.
I remember that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that is came from the lab of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. It sure looks like that is correct. That means it was man-made and not some accidental jumping of the virus from some horseshoe bats that people ate in Wuhan.
What follows is the scientists own press release summary of his findings.
SEATTLE, Jan 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — A paper was published today by Dr. Steven Quay, M.D., PhD., CEO of Atossa Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATOS), entitled, “A Bayesian analysis concludes beyond a reasonable doubt that SARS-CoV-2 is not a natural zoonosis but instead is laboratory derived.” The 193-page paper can be downloaded from Zenodo, a general-purpose open-access repository operated by CERN, here: https://zenodo.org/record/4477081# .
