The director-general of WHO says there has been a "premature push" to rule out the theory that the coronavirus might have escaped from a lab,

I doubt we'll get to the bottom of this one.

I honestly think the simplest explanation is a lab worker got infected, then went for lunch at the local wet market.

But China refuses to be scrutinized.

"But China refuses to be scrutinized."

Unlikely to change.

The plus side is that in future all our countries will be much more careful.  We will store PPE, masks, anti-virals and have policies that can be activated as soon as a nasty virus is reported.

I wish.  Out Federal Government is dragging its heels in building a quarantine facility.  Hotel quarantine is spotty and unreliable, but they don't want to spend the money on a state of the art facility that we are guaranteed to need in the future for the next pandemic.  It's exactly what Singapore did after SARS.

It would be a good idea to have plans ready for the next pandemic or the next drought or the next lot of flooding. Even if it doesn't happen.
