And as Dr Chris Martenson intriguingly points out in response to those who say there is no evidence to say SARS-CoV-2 escaped from a lab, there is no evidence it originated in nature either.
I agree that a lab produced virus could in theory wipe out vast numbers of human beings but it would be a very stupid entity that released it without already having an antidote prepared to protect themselves and those they approve of. Some mad religious group or terrorist maybe daft enough. Not something I want to get into at present. Covid is enough to think about.
There was knowledge of SAR-SCoV-2 in bats and maybe pangolins in research papers from a few years ago. I did read a paper on it in the early days of the pandemic. I really can't be bothered to find it at the moment. I suppose it would always be possible to put the paper out years in advance if this was planned long enough in advance and one had a devious enough mind.
I personally don't believe this virus was man made. I've seen several reports from respected authors that there are certain parts of viruses that lend themselves to adaptation for biological warfare. This virus doesn't have any of those signitures. Again the devious enough plotter could take that into account if determined enough.
