A WHO scientist has admitted the Covid lab leak theory has NOT been ruled out as the team comes under fire over its “whitewash” investigation in China.
Professor John Watson, who was part of the WHO team that travelled to Wuhan, stated the leak hypothesis remains on the table and confessed the mission may not have had the proper expertise to fully investigate the lab.
WIV is known to have been experimenting with bat coronaviruses and creating infectious hybrid strains for tests – and is located just a stone’s throw from where the virus first emerged in December, 2019.
The WHO team visited the lab as part of their mission – which was tightly controlled and stage managed by China.
“That’s a hypothesis that remains on the table and could certainly have further work done on it,” Prof Watson told Marr.
