See, you looked up the wiki on it. I couldn't care less. Thanks for proving my point. =D

I think that's false and misleading on several levels.

First of all, there does seem to be some evidence. China's top virology lab is in Wuhan, not very far from the wet-market the Chinese government blamed (without any real evidence) as the source of the disease. The lab is known (from its publications and American collaborators) to have been conducting research on how animal viruses cross over into humans. (According to some reports their work included research into how changing virus coat proteins alter transmissability.) They had already been called out for poorly trained technicians and sloppy safety procedure. And it's just been revealed that several workers in the lab fell ill with a mystery illness with symptoms very much like covid in Fall 2019, before the disease had appeared in the general population outside the lab.

So while there's no evidence that I know of that the disease was released intentionally, there is a very real possibility that workers in the lab accidently infected themselves with something and then carried it outside the lab.

“We’ve heard a lot recently about the fact that maybe the virus did start in a lab,” offered Maher. “Let’s talk about that—the fact that there is this lab, I think it’s the only one in the world quite like it, in Wuhan, where it started. It would almost be a conspiracy theory to think it didn’t start in a lab, right? And that theory was demonized at first—Oh, come on, that’s conspiracy thinking, that started in a lab. But it’s certainly 50-50, would you say that?”

“Oh, it’s far more likely than that,” replied Weinstein, adding that “it looked to be about 90 percent” probability that it originated in a lab. “We are so politicized and polarized and partisan now as a country that if the wrong guy proposed this to begin with—and for the half the country, it was the wrong guy—then the rest of the country says ‘no way, no how, we’re gonna call that a conspiracy theory,” added Heying.

Yep, just because Trump said or retweeted it, the left's knee jerk reaction is to deny it, regardless of any and all evidence.
