    Do you think it came from the Wuhan lab or spread naturally from an animal vector?

    It came from the Lab. It was covered up to stop Trump.

    But it will take years for scientists and media to admit it. They are terrified of Trump 2024.

    My guess, lab leak - but of something that developed in nature and was being investigated in the lab.

    I feel it is so robust that it must have come from nature. I still don't think humans have the ability to create an artificial virus that could survive and replicate in the real world for months. Like I assume they would have to account for all climates conditions and the competing ecosystem.
