Evidence suggests COVID-19 was in US in late 2019

Though it is newly respectable, the Wuhan lab theory remains fanciful | David Robert Grimes

Conspiracy theories on origins distract from tackling the pandemic and boost tawdry blame gamesIn the storm of disinformation since the emergence of Covid-19, the assertion that the virus is human-created has lingered on the fringes. This outlandish conjecture, once confined to conspiracy theorists, has undergone a renaissance after Joe Biden’s insistence that scientists should investigate the possible lab origins of Covid. From Vanity Fair to the Washington Post, the theory has been given a ven...

On Secrecy, COVID and the PRC

I hope you've enjoyed or at least feel you've learned more about this lab leak controversy from the emails I've published over the last couple days. I very much have. I now see a lot more of the complexity of the topic. But at the end of the day I come away with the conclusion that we really don't know because we don't have a lot of data. And that brings us back to a recurrent point: if the Chinese authorities wanted to they could clear a lot of this up by granting access to the records of t...

Photos of China's new aircraft carrier are leaking out, and they appear to show a modern flattop in the making
