This is article by Nicholas Wade, a doyen of science journalism, in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, a highly eminent science journal.

He writes that, it is more likely that the SARS CoV-2 virus escpaed from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, than being transmitted from bats. He talks about the vested interests of virologists and their patrons, and the lax safety measures at the laboratory in Wuhan Institute of Virology, which was doing high-risk research on coronaviruses.
