I have evidence that the Corona virus originated in a Chinese lab - Trump

On the one hand, US investigators deny that the virus was man-made, while US President Donald Trump claims that the core virus, Covid-19, was spread from a lab in China.

On Thursday, a reporter asked Trump, "How can you say with confidence that this virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China?" Do you have any evidence?

"Absolutely, I have," Trump said in response to the question. I think the World Health Organization should be ashamed that it is working to promote China. It works like China's public relations. "

"I don't know if China made this mistake, either intentionally or for some purpose," Trump said. I don’t understand why people were banned from going to the rest of China outside of Hubei but there were no restrictions on going all over the world. This has gone too bad. This is a very difficult question and it remains to be answered. "
