I was also skeptical initially, but I have started to believe the same now. There are just too many coincidences. First, the fact that the virus was probably created in the lab most important to the PLA biological weapons program, probably using dual use research by the "bat lady" of China. Then all the coverup and deletion of data from the Wuhan lab. Then lying to the world for months about person to person transmission, locking down Wuhan and other areas in China, while simultaneously pushing Chinese visitors to other countries, punishing doctors in China for revealing the pandemic, it just goes on and on. I suspect they also had ways to treat Covid that they hid from the world, as usually when you create a biological weapon, you also create the antidote to it. That may also be why the Chinese were able to control the pandemic within China, while spreading it to the world.I don't want to sound like a conspiracy theoriest but There is some part of my brain that says, Chinese intentionally infacted world with their synthetic lab made virus.
I am 100 percent sure that this thing was made in Wuhan lab, and that Peter Daszak and Fauci were involved in funding it (to outsource gain of function research after it was banned in US) and lied about it later, as well as pushed the natural origin hypothesis to save themselves. Once the CCP saw the potential of the virus, they decided to use it as a bioweapon by lying about it while allowing it to spread to ther countries, while simultaneously locking down Wuhan. They also bought up all the PPE, leaving shortages in other countries.
But I doubt the people in power in the west will ever admit to the entire truth, because too much of their money is tied up in China. Basically Chinese Communist Party and Xi are getting away with murder because of the greed of the wealthy people in western countries assisting in the coverup.
