Former Trump CDC Director Robert Redfield claims without evidence COVID-19 originated from Chinese lab

Without providing any evidence to back up his claims, the former director of the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Dr. Robert Redfield, who served during the Trump administration, said the COVID-19 virus originated from a lab in Wuhan, China.

In an interview with CNN, Redfield said he believes the novel coronavirus potentially started spreading as early as September of 2019 after it “escaped” from the Chinese lab.

Redfiled told CNN that this was “his opinion”, that he was “allowed to have opinions now”, and that “science will eventually figure it out.”

Experts have linked the deadly virus to a mutation from bats that was able to sicken humans. “I just don’t think this makes biological sense,” said Dr. Redfield. “I do not believe this somehow came from a bat to a human.”

Many are suspicious of the coincidental link between the proximity of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the wet markets that likely carried and distributed contaminated bats. 

Many challengers to Dr. Redfield’s statement would suggest looking into the work of active scientists.

The World Health Organization has initiated multiple investigations, which included 17 international scientists and 17 Chinese researchers, and determined that the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus coming from a lab accident, or from intentional spread is “extremely unlikely” and the least realistic scenario.
