    Even though the world is inching closer to eventually overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic, more questions are now being asked about the origins of the virus.

    G7 leaders endorsed calls this week for a “timely, transparent, expert-led, and science-based” further investigation into the origins of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

    Though the notion was once dismissed by most public health experts and government officials, the hypothesis that COVID-19 leaked accidentally from a Chinese lab is now under a new U.S. investigation ordered by President Joe Biden.

    Many scientists, including Biden’s chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, say they still believe the virus most likely occurred in nature and jumped from animals to humans. Virus researchers have not publicly identified any key new scientific evidence that might make the lab-leak hypothesis more likely.
