In this episode I speak with virologist Jonathan Latham about the origins of the COVID19 Pandemic and whether it originated from a wet market or was really a lab-release!
This includes answering the following:
- Is there a precedent for lab-releases?
- What is the evidence for a lab leak?
- What is the evidence for a natural zoonotic origin?
- Why doesn’t the wet market theory hold up?
- Why has mainstream media censored discussions of a lab leak?
You can read Jonathan’s detailed and evidence based articles on the topic here:
