What’s with the Wuhan lab theory?


President Joe Biden has asked the US intelligence community to investigate the possibility Covid-19 leaked from a virology lab in the Chinese city of Wuhan.


We all know the virus came from Wuhan, but we don’t know if it began in a wet market and was innocently passed from animals to humans – OR if it was a virus experiment that went wrong. Sharri Markson, the News Ltd columnist and Sky News host has written a book on the Wuhan Lab theory and says the evidence points to it being a leak from the lab.


How powerful is the argument that the virus began at the Wuhan lab?  What are the alternative theories…?  And will we ever learn the truth….?
