It’s been just revealed that an important scientist in Arizona said that a wet market in China and not a lab leak is the ground zero of the novel coronavirus.
EU Az Central notes that Michael Worobey’s research was published on Nov. 18 in the journal Science.
A lab leak is off the table, expert says
This is a piece that shows that a lab leak “is almost off the table,” as the origin of the pandemic.
On the other hand, he believes it occurred after a natural jump from animal to human, according to his research.
The online publication mentioned above notes the following:
“His investigation, conducted over several months with the help of translators, points to a female seafood vendor at the Huanan wet market near Wuhan as the earliest known case of COVID-19.”
The notes continue and reveal:
“It was not the 41-year-old accountant from Wuhan that China and the World Health Organization had previously identified as the first known COVID-19 case, he found.
The origins of the virus that causes COVID-19 in humans has been a source of controversy from the start.”

On the other hand, not too long ago, we were revealing that there are two scientists who failed to provide a shred of evidence that Covid 19 was engineered and leaked from a lab.
As you probably know by now, ever since the first reports of a novel coronavirus outbreak in China, the origins of Covid 19 have been steeped in controversy.
The Guardian analyzes if the novel coronavirus is or is not the result of a natural spillover event from animals to humans or if it is a product of a laboratory.
