@#6 ... I'm sorry that my answer was a little curt. ...
I agree with what you said, i.e., "Let the scientists do the sciencing"
I am not doubting what the scientists are doing, indeed, I welcome it.
However, I still say that unless and until China fully cooperates, getting the full picture of what happened will be difficult, at best. Impossible, at worst.
Now, going back to the topic at hand.
I see this in an NPR article about it...
New COVID origins study links pandemic's beginning to animals, not a lab
...Other experts have not yet verified their analysis, which also has not appeared so far in a peer-reviewed journal. How the coronavirus first started sickening people remains uncertain.
"These data do not provide a definitive answer to how the pandemic began, but every piece of data is important to moving us closer to that answer," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus at a Friday press briefing.
He also criticized China for not sharing the genetic information earlier, adding that "this data could have and should have been shared three years ago."
The samples were collected from surfaces at the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan after the first human cases of COVID-19 were found in late 2019.
Tedros said the genetic sequences were uploaded to the world's biggest public virus database in late January by scientists at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention; the data have since been removed from the database....
So, while this new evidence does appear to add significantly to what we know about the origins of COVID-19, there is still more "sciencing" that needs to be done. Starting with peer-reviews of this data analysis.
