There is no evidence. No smoking gun. Just the fact the lab in the same area. I am not ruling it out but as it stands the theory hold no water.

Um no.....I mean the blame being put on China may be warranted or may not be
They may or may not have really been the source of it all. China or some other country making a mistake or it all being just natural, I mean the US could possibly suggest they ARE at fault all the same if the goal is coaxing us into another Iraq.
EXCLUSIVE: The U.S. is conducting a full-scale investigation into whether the novel coronavirus, which went on to morph into a global pandemic that has brought the global economy to its knees, escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China, Fox News has learned.
According to Professor Luc Montagnier, winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008 for “discovering” HIV as the cause of the AIDS epidemic together with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, the SARS-CoV-2 is a virus that was manipulated and accidentally released from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, in the last quarter of 2019.
According to Professor Montagnier, this laboratory, known for its work on coronaviruses, tried to use one of these viruses as a vector for HIV in the search for an AIDS vaccine!
“With my colleague, bio-mathematician Jean-Claude Perez, we carefully analyzed the description of the genome of this RNA virus,” explains Luc Montagnier, interviewed by Dr Jean-François Lemoine for the daily podcast at Pourquoi Docteur, adding that others have already explored this avenue
To design a safe and sensitive assay for detection of NAbs to SARS-CoV, we generated an HIV pseudotype virus enveloped by the S protein from the BJ01 strain of SARS-CoV, with a luciferase gene as a reporter (HIV-luc/ SARS). This HIV-luc/SARS pseudovirus exhibited the highest infection level in Huh7 cells, which expressed a high level of the SARS-CoV receptor angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 .

Wanted to comment on this too....
Despite evidence that points to dangerous practices inside the Wuhan labs, top U.S. military brass, as well as other senior officials, have told Fox News that the origins of COVID-19 did not come from a laboratory nor was it the result of a bioweapon.
Let me start by saying "what do you THINK military brass is going to say in response to this question?" Of course they will say it isn't a bioweapon.... When has the military ever given a straight response to anything?
But take a moment to do some critical thinking here.... Why do you think a Chinese lab would be doing testing on coronavirus?
The question, for me..at least...has always been whether it was an accidental release or a purposeful one.

RETRACTION, Apr. 24, 2020: The Western Journal has retracted this commentary after a fact check by Health Feedback determined that the claims by Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier were inaccurate. “Genomic analyses indicate that the virus has a natural origin, and was not engineered. The so-called ‘unique’ protein sequence insertions found in the 2019 novel coronavirus can be found in many other organisms, not just HIV,” according to the fact check.
