Who's Who in WHO (General)

And then I see headlines like this:

Scientists: 'Exactly zero' evidence COVID-19 came from a lab
From https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2020/05/scientists-exactly-zero-evidence-co...

What the article fails to mention is that there is exactly zero evidence that it came directly from nature. In fact, they have no evidence at all, zero, of where it came from. There is inference, yes. There is extrapolation, yes. But no evidence at all. Zero. And yet, their headline suggests that it has been determined that it didn't come from a lab, which is not the case.

The article spends a lot of time supporting the argument that the virus was not engineered, but even if that's true, it is still quite possible that a 'natural' virus escaped from the lab. Nowhere in the article (though I read it very quickly) do they discuss the fact that SARS has escaped from labs previously.
