It wasn't, though. The lab in question had terrible biosecurity procedures (they documented them by accident in a press release, with a photograph showing a blown seal on one of their sample freezers, and a technician handling supposed virus samples in nearly no protective gear) and was within walking distance of the market where the breakout was claimed to have started. It was also researching coronaviruses found in bats. The host species of the virus is not native to the area.
