Australian PM says virus 'most likely' came from Wuhan market

WHO, Fauci and intel sources reject China lab theory

Australian prime minister Scott Morrison says the origin of the Covid-19 virus was most likely a wildlife wet market in Wuhan, China after both US president Donald Trump and secretary of state Mike Pompeo claimed, without providing evidence, that the virus could have originated in a Wuhan laboratory. UK Guardian reported on Tuesday.

Morrison added it remained paramount for a transparent review to be conducted into the origins of the coronavirus to avoid similar situations in the future.

Speaking to the press, Morrison refused to rule out any possibilities as he was asked if it was possible for the virus to have originated in a laboratory in Wuhan.

The Australian prime minister went on to say: "What’s really is important that we have a proper review, an independent review that looks into the sources of these things in a transparent way so we can learn the lessons to make sure were there to be a virus ... that could originate anywhere else in the world, we can learn lessons from that, and that’s what Australia is focused on. I have written to all the G20 leaders about that."

Earlier, a leaked document from Five Eyes (FVEY), a group of intelligence agencies of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the US, showed that FVEY believes China is hiding information on the virus outbreak.

Against all the claims by the "Five Eyes", Dr. Anthony Fauci, a renowned U.S. infectious disease expert on Monday said that there is no scientific evidence to back the theory that the coronavirus was made in a Chinese laboratory. And he "doesn't entertain" the alternate theory that the virus was leaked from a laboratory after being brought in from the wild.

Fauci's comments came in an interview with National Geographic published on Monday. "If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what's out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated," he said.

When it comes to the alternative theory that some "scientists found the virus outside the lab, brought it back, and then it escaped," Fauci responded with indifference, saying that "[the virus] was in the wild to begin with. That's why I don't get what they're talking about [and] why I don't spend a lot of time going in on this circular argument."

Similarly, On Monday, the World Health Organization (WHO) also stated that they haven't received evidence to support "speculative" claims by the U.S. president that the new coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab.

"We have not received any data or specific evidence from the United States government relating to the purported origin of the virus – so from our perspective, this remains speculative," WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan told a virtual briefing.

It is also reported that the Five Eyes network, an alliance between the UK, U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Canada, believes that "there is no current evidence to suggest that coronavirus leaked from a Chinese research laboratory."

According to The Guardian, the sources also insisted that a "15-page dossier" highlighted by the Australian Daily Telegraph, said "there is nothing to indicate a leak from the lab could have caused the pandemic."

And the report suggested that the Australian government's position is that "the virus most likely originated in the Wuhan wet market," which contradicts the Trump administration's "Chinese lab theory."
