The origin of COVID-19: The debate opens up

March 30, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Where did COVID-19 come from? For a long time after the outbreak of the global pandemic, even posing this question was considered controversial. But several voices have long challenged the assertion that the virus has a zoonotic (animal) origin from a natural setting – and instead argue there are strong arguments in support of the theory that it escaped from a laboratory setting.

Join MLI Domestic Policy Director Aaron Wudrick in conversation with Dr. Alina Chan and Matt Ridley, authors of the revised and updated paperback edition of Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19, as they discuss the evolution of the public debate on the virus’ origin, and new evidence which has come to light in support of the lab leak theory.
