Dr. Sanjay Gupta has expressed his agreement with former CDC Director Robert Redfield that the most plausible origin for the COVID-19 virus’s origins was escape from a Wuhan laboratory. In a podcast with “The Interview,” he recently made the remarks, which is a marked break from his network CNN.
“But the biggest news I thought that came out of those interviews was former CDC Director Robert Redfield, his claim that he thought it was most likely that Covid had escaped from a lab in China, as opposed to having leapt from bat to animal to human at a wet market,” Aidan McLaughlin remarked. “And that has been treated by many in the media as a conspiracy theory. What do you think of his opinion? He is an experienced virologist.”
“He is an experienced virologist, he was also head of the CDC at the time this was happening, which means that in addition to everything that we know, he had access to raw data and raw intelligence that was coming out of China,” Dr. Gupta said. “My point is that it’s a much more informed sort of thing for him to be saying than for, you know, anybody who who may have expertise in virology, because he has a lot more knowledge and information that he has that maybe he can’t share, but is informing his opinion.” read more
