And yet none of these people are able to dismiss the idea that the jump happened naturally inside of the lab.
They’re not talking about because statistically the probability is so low it’s now worth talking about it, despite what some sections of the media are now fantasising about. 1-7 million people per year are infected with viruses form animals due natural spillover. Just like how every previous pandemic came from a virus that naturally spilled from animals to humans. The chance that this came from one leak from a lab is therefore 1 in 1-7 million.
Scientists aren’t like crooked police, they aren’t going to decide that China is the culprit then only look for evidence that backs up their theory or obsess about them non stop. They are concentrating on looking in the natural environment in places like caves because it’s the emits likely source.
On the money and that is where they will likely find it. Maybe somebody went cave-diving or whatever. Hopefully, at some future date we do get some idea. We should have ideally found patient 0 but that not happening this is the only way forward
