One of the manipulated strains (SARS COV2) then accidentally escaped the lab and took on a life of its own.

THIS concept is far more in line with Occamís Razor as being the most plausible given the data that Roganís guest refers to.
If source of the outbreak was truly the Wuhan Wetmarket as they claimed, why did the government close down all such markets only to quietly reopen them several months later? Probably because they know that wasnít the source!

The CCP is always in a somewhat precarious position... they are tolerated by the people, but the government doesn't have as much power as a place like the DPRK. CCP hung their hat on economics more than rigid control, so they can't just arbitrarily close entire economic sectors. They would be more inclined to regulate the wet markets, or try to, or at least give the appearance of doing that.

No, but I'd take PRC by long shot if those were my two choices.

I agree. I would prefer 10 bullet wounds to the arms and legs, than a machine gun blast of 100 rounds to the heart.

WHO Director-General says the lab origin theory was not investigated adequately...
