Trump’s Trade Adviser Repeats Unsubstantiated COVID Theory
First it was former MI6 director Richard Dearlove espousing a theory about the origins of the COVID virus that has no foundation in fact.
Now it’s White House trade adviser Peter Navarro.
‘Navarro says on CNN’s “State of the Union” that it remains unclear how the virus started and “until we get some information about what happened in those labs or what happened in that wet market, we know that the virus was spawned in China.”
President Trump and his allies have been repeating the unsubstantiated theory linking the outbreak’s origin to a possible accident at a Chinese virology laboratory. U.S. intelligence officials describe the evidence as purely circumstantial.
And finally, listen to this conversation of virologists. They say there’s ” no credible evidence” that SARS-CoV-2 came from a lab.
