So far, most (not all) mainstream and progressive media outlets have toed the line on the origins of COVID-19 story. No genetic engineering. No lab escape.

Anyone who suggests otherwise is merely peddling conspiracy theories. But could the tide be slowly turning?

This week the Wall Street Journal, published an article that begins with this:

“New research has deepened, rather than dispelled, the mystery surrounding the origin of the coronavirus responsible for Covid-19. Bats, wildlife markets, possibly pangolins and perhaps laboratories may all have played some role, but the simple story of an animal in a market infected by a bat that then infected several human beings no longer looks credible.”

The Journal article refers to numerous studies, including one by Nikolai Petrovksy and colleagues at Flinders University in Australia who, the Journal reports, have found that SARS-CoV-2 has a higher affinity for human receptors than for any other animal species they tested, including pangolins and horseshoe bats. 

“[Petrovsky] suggests that this could have happened if the virus was being cultured in human cells, adding that ‘We can’t exclude the possibility that this came from a laboratory experiment.’”
