Coronavirus Likely From Market Not Lab
OFFICIALS: INTELLIGENCE INDICATES CORONAVIRUS FAR MORE LIKELY TO HAVE ORIGINATED AT FOOD MARKET, NOT A LAB
(CNN) – Newly-revealed intelligence is pouring more cold water on a theory that the coronavirus came from a Chinese lab.
Multiple western officials say intelligence indicates it’s far more likely the virus originated at a food market in the city of Wuhan.
One official says it’s still unclear how the virus got to the market.
But other sources say it’s very likely the virus occurred naturally.
The information contradicts a theory pushed by president Trump that the virus was accidentally leaked from a lab in Wuhan.
The officials say the intelligence was shared by what’s known as the “five eye coalition.” Which includes the U.S., Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
