No, despite my dislike for Ron Paul, the argument is gain of function research on bat coronavirus (same origins as covid) in the Wuhan Institute may have been a possible orgin of COVID19 due to a lab leak. The same lead chinese scientist at the Wuhan Institute who studied gain of function were funded by the NIH and correlaborated with US researchers doing gain of function research as well.
Now gain of function research is a nice name for making viruses that are not infectious to humans (like bat coronavirus ), to be infectious to humans. Now why did they want to do that? Because the idea was to get ahead of possible future pandemics and premake vaccines.
There hasn’t yet been any concrete evidence for natural emergence theory, one reason is because the strange lack of intermediary animals for over a year (for SARS 1 this was found in months). And a strange lack of rapid mutation in the initial cases which were expected for a virus that had just crossed over to humans. But this did happen as expected when it crossed from humans to minks, suggesting it is not a unique feature of COVID-19. Some say this may point to a virus that has been accumulated to human culture cells, which are used in gain of function research to make virsus more infectious to human cells.
Plus the fact that the Wuhan Institute was right at the epicenter and the wet market is no longer treated as the starting place because of prior patients unconnected with the wet market.
So there is some speculation that the lab leak theory could be true and definitely should be investigated. There’s no reason, or data that supports the natural emergence more than the lab leak theory at the moment. At least any that is scientifically sound.
Edit: also Bidens intelligence cabinet had specifically mentioned that they were not rulling out the lab leak hypothesis
