I really have to post links to the latest genetic research showing it's not even from China! It's late now, but I'll try to find it tommorow. One thing though is that the virus has been found in a blood sample taken in the US in December 2019 and another sample from France was taken in November. It was around for a while before it was noticed. Scientists have been saying this from the start. The Wuhan lab spotted it because they are world leaders in the study of coronaviruses and ran tests on a local outbreak. Elsewhere it was flu season... They deserve credit, rather than blame in my opinion. Don't shoot the messenger!
My daughter and I both had a horrendous respiratory illness from Nov 2019 through Jan 2020. She went to the doctor three times and got multiple prescriptions. She's an intensive care nurse, and she's convinced we had COVID before it hit the bigtime.

When I told my mum about this she immediately told me that she and my step dad had the worst bout of flu either had experienced in December 2019 (in Spain). She wonders about that too.

You all know I've been saying this for quite some time...pretty much from my first post on this when I call it a possible Captain Tripps.
The Wall Street Journal article is pretty worthless in my opinion. An anonymous unconfirmed source in US intelligence saying that three people at the lab were seriously ill, but no information on with what or anything reliable.
Let's say that this is true. What would it prove? Wuhan was a disaster area riddled with Covid not long after and they lived and worked there. Why assume they got it in a secure lab not known to have been studying the virus (as confirmed by the WHO) rather than outside the lab where it was almost certainly everywhere with no safety measures in place?
Also, News Corp has been pushing this theory all along and all previous exposes have fallen flat. I don't put any faith in that. Between the sensationalism and prophesies, the only hard facts presented are that a world expert on a particular type of virology is connected to somewhere which specialises in it and an uncomfirmed accusation that some people got sick in a plague zone.
(Sorry. I seem to be Mister Skeptic round here lately!)

Well, my Skeptic, I am waiting it out to see what else pops up. I've seen and read a mountain of "medical" reports which contradict each other in so many ways I am skeptical we will ever know know for sure. ;)
