Yuri Deigin and Bret Weinstein on the possible lab leak, before it became mainstream, and then banned.

It can’t get too much more mainstream than this letter in Science: Investigate the origins of COVID-19 Bret and Heather discuss it here: What Covid Reveals About our Leaders.


H1N1, Smallpox, Venezuelan equine encephalitis (VEE), SARS, and Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) have documented cases of lab leaks:

A brief, terrifying history of viruses escaping from labs: 70s Chinese pandemic was a lab mistake
The danger of a manmade pandemic sparked by a laboratory escape is not hypothetical

For H1N1 one piece of evidence was missing evolution:

In 1977, H1N1 influenza A virus reappeared after a 20-year absence. Genetic analysis indicated that this strain was missing decades of nucleotide sequence evolution, suggesting an accidental release of a frozen laboratory strain into the general population.

The Re-Emergence of H1N1 Influenza Virus in 1977: A Cautionary Tale for Estimating Divergence Times Using Biologically Unrealistic Sampling

Based on available evidence, the 1977 strain was indeed too closely matched to decades-old strains to likely be a natural occurrence.
