WASHINGTON – Twenty of the world’s leading experts on Coronaviruses and virus genetics say, COVID-19 did not come from a lab.

They’re laying out evidence in a new online posting that it almost certainly came from an animal.

Questions about the origin have made it all the way to the White House.

The scientists say it’s just a coincidence that COVID-19 started in a Chinese City with a virology lab.

They say Wuhan was probably the hot spot because it has multiple animal markets, and is a travel hub.

Meanwhile, more than four million people across the globe have died from COVID-19, according to Johns Hopkins University.
