In fact, they state that recent studies have only bolstered their belief that the virus evolved naturally. … The group of scientists wrote: ‘We believe the strongest clue from new, credible, and peer-reviewed evidence in the scientific literature is that the virus evolved in nature, while suggestions of a laboratory-leak source of the pandemic remain without scientifically validated evidence that directly supports it in peer-reviewed scientific journals.'” (07/06/21)
