The COVID-19 virus was not lab-made, and the pandemic restrictions were based on scientific data. 

Evidence of COVID-19’s Origins

An academic study conducted by Kristian Andersen, Andrew Rambaut, W. Ian Lipkin, Edward C. Holmes, and Robert F. Garry, concluded that COVID-19 was the result of natural evolution and was not lab-made. 

“By comparing the available genome sequence data for known coronavirus strains, we can firmly determine that SARS-CoV-2 originated through natural processes,” Kristian Andersen said.

The use of COVID-19 as a “scare tactic” has therefore been ruled out. 

The claim has been repeatedly shared since the beginning of the pandemic.

Misbar has previously debunked several claims related to COVID-19.
