Poll: Nearly 30% of Americans Believe the Coronavirus Was Created In a Lab

A new poll by the Pew Research Center has found that 29% of Americans believe that the deadly coronavirus was most likely created in a lab somewhere.

A mind-boggling 23% of Americans believe that the coronavirus was developed intentionally in a lab, while 6% think it was most likely made accidentally in a lab.

CNN notes that virus experts agree that virus experts believe the virus likely originated in a bat, not in a Chinese lab.

Chinese researchers published an article in Nature — a top science journal — in February that found the “2019-nCoV is 96% identical at the whole-genome level to a bat coronavirus.”
