This is in the "LIVING" section of the New York Post. (That's why it's got all these colloquisms like "Read that again!" and "You heard me right!")

It was written by Steven Mosher, a founding member of "The Committee on the Present Danger: China." And he's flogging a discredited conspiracy theory.


> And just how many “microbiology labs” are there in China that handle “advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus”?

> It turns out that in all of China there is only one. And this one is located in the Chinese city of Wuhan that just happens to be . . . the epicenter of the epidemic.

Is it true that bat coronaviruses are BSL-4? I read that they are BSL-2. There are lots of BSL-2 labs.
