It's not unlikely at all that this was an accidental release. Whether it spread from the wet market or not?“Whilst the facts cannot be known at this time, the nature of this event and its proximity to a high-risk biosecurity facility at the epicentre of the outbreak demands a full and independent international enquiry to ascertain whether a virus of this kind of COVID-19 was being cultured in the facility and might have been accidentally released.”
There are facilities in every country that conducts research on diseases that stock samples of stuff far worse than this. The CDC maintains a limited stock of Smallpox, even though the disease is considered to have been eradicated, like Polio.
Whether it was intentionally created is highly unlikely though? Definitely a topic for the other thread.
