“Viral,” a new book by Alina Chan and Matt Ridley, is the most sophisticated and detailed analysis of the origin of COVID-19 published to date: a master class on how emerging outbreaks—both natural and lab-based—have been tracked, and the history of novel coronavirus research in different countries leading up to the pandemic. Chan and Ridley carefully follow the science and collate the evidence to lay out what we know and what remains to be known about the emergence of this devastating disease.

Join Hudson Institute President and CEO John Walters for a conversation with Alina Chan and Matt Ridley, and Hudson Senior Fellow David Asher, who led the State Department investigation into the origin of COVID-19 in 2020.
