Former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield doubled down on his hypothesis that COVID-19 came from a Wuhan lab while expressing “disappointment” in scientists such as Dr. Anthony Fauci for their “lack of openness” to investigating the theory.
Redfield made the comments during a 2-hour long interview with Fox News Medical Contributor Marc Siegel. “A year and a half ago Dr. Robert Redfield, then CDC Director, had a hypothesis about the emerging virus. So did Dr. Anthony Fauci. Redfield felt that evidence pointed to a lab manipulation and a leak, and Fauci didn’t,” Siegel summarized.
Clips from the interview reveal Redfield backing the hypothesis that COVID-19 originated in a Wuhan lab, as he similarly claimed during a CNN interview in March. “There’s an alternative hypothesis that it went from a bat virus, got into a laboratory where, in the laboratory, it was taught, educated, it evolved, so that it became a virus that could efficiently transmit human-to-human,” he reiterates in the Fox interview.
“In my professional opinion as a virologist, that’s the hypothesis that I support,” he adds before singling out Fauci for subscribing to the COVID-19 “natural origins” theory.
