‘Pimping spin, not science’: Skeptics question COVID-19 starting at wet market; Report: UK government believes Wuhan lab leak most likely COVID-19 origin, and other C-Virus related stories

‘Pimping spin, not science’: Skeptics question COVID-19 starting at wet market:
As researchers try to pin down where exactly COVID-19 originated, skeptics are questioning two new studies looking at a wet market in Wuhan, China, as the site from where the virus was released.
The two new research papers, funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, and Department of Health and Human Services, suggest the virus was released at the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market as a result of live animal sales, with “at least two zoonotic events” to blame.
Richard H. Ebright, a Board of Governors professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers, called the research "opinion pieces" and condemned news outlets such as the New York Times for spreading false information.
“The journalists pimping the two opinion pieces masquerading as scientific papers fully understand that they are pimping spin, not science,” Ebright wrote on Twitter in response to the post. “Thar is the entire point of the pimping.” --->READ MORE HERE

UK government believes Wuhan lab leak most likely COVID-19 origin: report
The United Kingdom's government is increasingly reassured that the coronavirus pandemic was the result of a lab leak in Wuhan, China, according to a new report.
While the theory that the coronavirus was leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was dismissed by world governments early into the pandemic, evidence continues to trickle out supporting the claim. Government officials in the U.K., U.S., and elsewhere have begun voicing support for further investigation into the lab leak possibility.
Now, sources tell British newspaper the Telegraph that the "official view" within the U.K.'s leadership is that the virus did indeed escape from the Chinese lab, though government officials are more open about that view in private than in public.
"I think the official view [within Government] is that it is as likely as anything else to have caused the pandemic. A lot of people like myself think it is more likely. I think attitudes have changed a little bit. The zoonotic transfer theory just didn’t make sense," Cambridge bio-security fellow Hamish de-Bretton Gordon told the paper. --->READ MORE HERE
