Former CDC Director Claims He Was 'Threatened and Ostracized' for Supporting Lab-Leak Theory
Former U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield says he was “threatened and ostracized” by scientists after telling CNN he believes that COVID-19 most likely originated in a lab in China.
“I was threatened and ostracized because I proposed another hypothesis,” Redfield told Vanity Fair.
He added, “I expected it from politicians. I didn’t expect it from science.”
During his CNN interview in March, Redfield said he believes COVID-19 most likely “was from a laboratory” in Wuhan, China, that “escaped,” as IJR reported.
He continued, “Science will eventually figure it out.”
