Was coronavirus leaked from a lab? (Nicholas Wade & Victor Gao) E1020

On this episode of Going Underground, we firstly speak to Nicholas Wade, former Science Editor at the New York Times. He discusses the hypothesis that the coronavirus may have been manipulated and leaked from a laboratory, Covid-19’s ability to target human cells from the very start, what makes Covid-19 unique in the same family of viruses, US funding for research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and much more! Finally, we speak to Victor Gao, Vice President of the Center for China and Globalisation. He discusses the Covid-19 lab leak theory and makes the case against why the claim is a baseless conspiracy, highlighting the fact Covid-19 samples have been discovered in many other parts of the world that predate the Wuhan outbreak, US funding for Chinese virus research, the closing of Chinese databases, and the absence of a direct species source for zoonotic transmission of the virus, the Uighur Tribunal and much more!
