COVIDs lab leaking theory will remain viable until found otherwise: Scientists

London: There are myriad different guesswork and propaganda stories about the origin of the novel coronavirus, including a series of conspiracy theories. But some scientists want the theory of leaking the virus from a Chinese lab to be kept intact until concrete proof comes out negating the leaking theory.

Scientists like Ravindra Gupta, a clinical microbiologist at the University of Cambridge, and Jesse Bloom, who studies the evolution of viruses at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center are of the opinion that the investigation into the origin of Coronavirus should continue to thwart further calamity as the COVID did in the world.

To scientists like David Relman, professor of microbiology at Stanford, the theories related to the accidental release from a lab and zoonotic spillover are found to be viable validating cases to the pandemic.

In a letter to the journal Science,, they have stated that the investigation the World Health Organization had conducted had not given much weightage to the Lab Leakage theory.

The WHO-led team after spending four weeks in and around Wuhan in January and February had said in its final report that the virus had probably been transmitted from bats to humans through another animal and that a lab leak was "extremely unlikely" as a cause.

"We must take hypotheses about both natural and laboratory spillovers seriously until we have sufficient data," the scientists clarified.
