‘It Was a Regular Lab’

Just months before the pandemic broke out, Danielle Anderson—an expert in bat-borne viruses—packed up her station at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
The Australian is the only foreign scientist to have conducted research at the Institute’s biosafety level 4 lab—and she’s broken her silence on the “lab leak” theory on the origins of the pandemic. 
 “What people are saying is just not how it is,” says Anderson, who says the Institute ran a tight ship.
In a lab of this size, she wasn’t keeping tabs on everyone’s research, but she maintains that a natural source is by far the most likely.
Still, she says, a thorough investigation is needed to know for sure.
