Conspiracy Theory As Spoiler Alert

 6/11/23 U.K. Telegraph article on Yahoo News:

Scientists in the Chinese city of Wuhan worked alongside the country’s military to combine the world’s most deadly viruses before the Covid pandemic began, it was claimed on Sunday.

According to investigators who examined intercepted communications and scientific research, Chinese scientists were running the secret project at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

An investigation by The Sunday Times claimed that US investigators believe that one of the reasons why there is no published information on the work is because it was done in collaboration with researchers from the Chinese military.

The newspaper said it had examined hundreds of documents, including confidential reports, internal memos, scientific papers and email correspondence and that the institute in Wuhan was engaged in increasingly risky experiments on coronaviruses it gathered from bat caves in southern China.

Let me emphasize that there is no claim that it was intentionally released (although it does appear the Chinese military was attempting to weaponize a naturally occurring virus).  I find the accidental escape model best fits the facts, or it would have only been on a few passengers leaving China for the West. I still think the people who approved the research project (Dr. Fauci) should be stripped of pensions and sued.  China, too.
