A friend of mine brought this video to my attention. At 0:51, journalist Sharri Markson claims
As you can see, this video shows bats in a cage at the Wuhan Institute [of Virology]
This contradicts previous claims, such as ones by Peter Daszak who works for the WHO:
[The Wuhan Institute of Virology] DO NOT have live or dead bats in them. There is no evidence anywhere that this happened.
My questions are as follows:
Does Markson accurately characterize the contents of the footage?
Do Markson and Carlson accurately characterize the lab itself and the nature of the lab's work (i.e. that it was studying coronaviruses, specifically which ones can infect humans)?
Are there experts or authorities who have commented on whether these videos are or are not evidence for the claim that SARS-Cov-2 originated in a lab?
A similar question was asked before on this site, but it was asked over a year ago and none of the answers are particularly recent. All answers say it was unknown whether or not the virus originated from a lab, and there was no evidence to support the claim. I apologize if it has been asked again recently, but I thought it would be a good idea to ask it again when I saw this footage.
