3. Was it lab created virus in Wuhan or occurred naturally?

If it occurred naturally, I think the whales having survived millions of years on earth will have built in immunity. If lab created, they will be vulnerable.

4. I believe it was created naturally. You've made a very good point.

I would hate to see animals become extinct before their time.

5. There is zero evidence it was created in a lab anywhere.

Please don't even suggest that here.

7. Do you know who might have the official evidence of it's origin?

Have outside scientists been allowed to examine the Wuhan lab?
Has our CDC or any other gov't body issued an official statement?
Lately I am not seeing much news about covid-19 origin.

I am curious only because this virus is acting differently than others and is like 10 times more infectious than any other virus pandemic of recent years.

9. Google it.

Wait, I'll do it for you.
SARS-CoV-2 virus is a beta coronavirus, like MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. All three of these viruses have their origins in bats. The sequences from U.S. patients are similar to the one that China initially posted, suggesting a likely single, recent emergence of this virus from an animal reservoir. However, the exact source of this virus has not been identified.


That last sentence is NOT trying to hint it was lab created.

Now just Google "Was Covid-19 created in a lab" and you'll see lots of stuff totally debunking that notion.

11. Search engines are fine but I would like to see official statement from CDC or

other top gov't agencies such NIH and others.

12. The CDC did make an official statement.

My quote in the block is from the CDC. Again, Google it. The Google can give you links to the CDC. Or figure out the CDC website (I'd Google that, also) and do some looking.

I'm not sure what you want exactly. The fact that they say it was not lab created is readily out there. On their website.

6. Most diseases don't cross species all that easily.

Which is a good thing.
