Former CDC Director Robert Redfield sits down with CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta to discuss the pandemic and shares his opinion about the origin of the Covid-19 virus.
The remark, which he stressed was only an “opinion” and for which he provided no evidence, came during an interview with CNN.
“I’m of the point of view that I still think the most likely etiology of this pathology in Wuhan was from a laboratory. You know, escaped,” Redfield told the network’s chief medical correspondent, Sanjay Gupta. “Other people don’t believe that. That’s fine. Science will eventually figure it out.”
Redfield continued, “It’s not unusual for respiratory pathogens that are being worked on in a laboratory to infect the laboratory worker.”
