Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow and former Department of State COVID-19 lead investigator Dr. David Asher and experts Dr. Steven Quay and Professor Richard Muller for a discussion on the scientific evidence and politics surrounding the inquiries into the origins of COVID-19. After a detailed presentation by Dr. Quay of the scientific evidence for both the zoonotic and “lab leak” origin hypotheses, the speakers will assess the complicity of the Chinese government in the development and propagation of the pandemic. Professor Muller will address the reasons for the initial consensus that the origin of the pandemic was undoubtedly natural, and examine the evidence for this hypothesis as well as the hypothesis that COVID-19 emerged as a result of an accidental leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Please join Hudson Institute for this timely discussion.
