18 scientists: COVID lab-leak theory should not be ruled out

A group of 18 prominent scientists have published a paper in the journal Science calling for an investigation into the origins of the novel coronavirus pandemic, insisting an accidental leak from a lab cannot be ruled out.

The open letter comes on the heels of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., confronting White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci on the issue, and a former Science editor publishing a lengthy analysis concluding the evidence points to a lab leak.

Only four of the WHO report’s 313 pages and its annexes addressed the possibility of a lab accident, they pointed out.

“Notably, WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus commented that the report’s consideration of evidence supporting a laboratory accident was insufficient and offered to provide additional resources to fully evaluate the possibility,” they said.
