The possibility that Covid accidentally leaked from a Wuhan Lab has enormously dangerous geopolitical ramifications.
The Chinese regime would be terrified of an angry domestic population turning against them while a global call for compensation would erupt.
A war to whip up nationalistic fervour that reasserts State control over the domestic population while daring the rest of the world to stop them would be required to hide that truth getting out.
We know there were embassy cables warning Trump that the Wuhan Lab was a safety risk.
We know the lab was experimenting on the virus and that scientists have now cast suspicion on the virus having been tampered with.
Because of the prevalence of these types of labs and with human error factored in, there is an 80 percent chance of a a dangerous pathogen escape every 12.8 years.
We know lab staff suffered symptoms exactly like Covid a month before the first case in December.
The most dangerous part of this will be the way it empowers Trump and Qanon while diminishing the credibility of the mainstream media.
If the report in 90 days finds evidence of a lab leak, things will escalate quickly.
