Conspiracy theories claiming the Covid-19 leaked from a research lab in Wuhan were originally dismissed as completely false back in January after rumours spread online
The anonymous tip-off was reported by the Mail on Sunday today.
A source said: “There is a credible alternative view [to the zoonotic theory] based on the nature of the virus. Perhaps it is no coincidence that there is that laboratory in Wuhan. It is not discounted.”
Wuhan is home to National Biosafety Laboratory, one of the most advanced laboratories in China, where theorists claim the coronavirus pathogen, named SARS-CoV, escaped. It is the same city where first cases of the virus were reported in December.
