We don't seem to know conclusively where this damn thing came from yet, but be cautious of anyone overtly or subtly trying to answer, who isn't on the front line.
If you agree or not, always follow the money to verify the source:
Like a political party that seems to be full of folks who value money over human life and compassion, when you are trying to achieve an unethical goal, it’s always good to defer attention with blame, doubt, chaos, confusion, and social division, so as to shift attention from their real goal. $$$$$
This guy starts by planting his conclusion, but then states up front, but not again till conclusion (if you can last that long), that none of this is super definitive, yes or no...... but……
(now his sales pitch)…
In this gentleman’s video he’s trying to lay down the foundation of doom and gloom and plant a seed of distrust. He is a master of implication and circumstance with questionable conclusions.
He’s trying to scare us. (When it comes to “belief”, we humans tend to believe what we want to believe.)
First his “ad verecundiam”, an expert in COVID-19:
“1994 PhD from Duke’s Department of Pathology where he specialized in toxicology. While he published scientific research in the ’90s, for at least the last decade Martenson has focused on predicting stagflation and other large shifts in financial markets.”

"Chris Martenson, PhD (Duke), MBA (Cornell) is an economic researcher and futurist specializing in energy and resource depletion"
So, what’s the primary motivation? Why would you want to plant an idea that there may be someone to blame?
Apparently if you listen to him, you can avoid financial loss during the upcoming “ends of the world” by paying him for the info.
Or you can cut corners by just buying gold. (His partner Adam Taggart has wrapped himself around this).
The intelligence agencies are best for finding out if China did anything nefarious, not internet bloggers making money on your fears.
It’s really mostly irrelevant now where this virus came from. It’s here; we need to stick together, do our part by being safe, and increase comprehensive, dependable testing to gain information, before jumping to conclusions.
