The precise origins of the COVID-19 pandemic remain unknown as of now, but if the lab-leak hypothesis gains credibility as a likely or even plausible explanation for the global disaster, millions of dollars could be at stake for scientists across the globe.

For that reason, it’s noteworthy that several of the scientists with a direct financial interest in the origins of COVID-19 are intimately involved with the investigation into the matter. In order for the World Health Organization (WHO) to conclude that COVID-19 accidentally escaped from a lab, multiple members of its investigative team would have to jeopardize their own professional futures.
