Australia PM: Coronavirus most likely emerged from Chinese wildlife market
SYDNEY (Asia) – Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday said that the most likely source of the novel coronavirus was a Chinese wildlife market.
Last week, U.S. President Donald Trump last week was confident the coronavirus originated in a Chinese virology lab.
Australia has seen no evidence to change its view, Morrison said, that it originated from a wildlife market. Morrison would not rule out Trump’s theory.
“We can’t rule out any of these arrangements that’s what I said the other day, but the most likely has been in a wildlife wet market.”
