    That's crazy. Nobody should put politics over family. Then again, people also died from following the President's idiotic ramblings about COVID cures.

    Scientists studied a dangerous virus. This happens everyday.

    ... at low biosafety. Also happens everyday, but hopefully less often.

    The dishonesty is about start ...

    Has this been investigated? Yes.

    Has this been investigated and the conclusions the SCWs want reached? No.

    Is it possible that the Wuhan facility "leaked" covid-19? Maybe.

    But what would that mean? Certainly not what the SCWs want. The covid-19 virus could have been discovered "in the wild" (say at the Wuhan fish market), brought into the Wuhan lab, studied and accidentally leaked? Maybe. But covid-19 would be spreading and evolving in the Wuhan fish market the entire time the lab was studying it. The Wuhan lab leak could be as simple as someone in the lab catching the virus as they studied it, taking it home with them ... spreading the virus both at home and work.

    A Wuhan lab worker could hav also visited the fish market, caught covid-19, and spread it at home and the Wuhan Lab. This gives the same effect as the Wuhan Lab capturing, studying and then accidentally infecting the lab workers. A Wuhan lab worker catching covid outside of the lab might even started to study the virus after being infected.

    This is all possible. This is how viruses spread. This is not all that sinister.

    For a covid-19 conspiracy to have legs, the Wuhan lab must have more than just studied a virus. They must have frankenstein-ed an existing virus, so that the new virus was more deadly and infectious. And then accidentally or even purposely released the frankenstein-ed virus.

    The covid-19 virus that spread from Wuhan did not have the markers that indicate that the virus had been manipulated in the lab. That makes the frankenstein-ed virus theory extremely unlikely.

    Conspiracy theorist do not care. Al they need is "Wuhan lab workers caught covid" to make the jump that "Wuhan Lab created and leaked the covid virus" and then "CCP leaked covid-19, so that Trump would lose his re-election" and so on and so on.

    TL;DR
    Water is wet. Thus all covid conspiracy must be true.

    Started reading this, fell asleep.

    The virus came from the lab in Wuhan. Fauci funded that lab.

    Facts.

    The incompetency of Trump and his stepson's COVID handling, HOAX propaganda, and failure to take the advice of medical professionals was a complete disregard for saving lives. All Trump cared about was gathering crowds, holding rallies, and fundraising.

    I saw too many of these stories across Texas, and it was heartbreaking that these people chose to believe those minimizing the dangers.

    Every day it was stories like that, and doctors and nurses pleasing for people to avoid large gatherings. Meanwhile, some jerk with a red tie and MAGA hat pranced around the country gathering as many people as he could. Trump proved he is incapable of being a leader who cares about anyone but himself.

    There isn't a concensus for either theories. Even our intelligence agencies are divided on the origins.
