I haven't been following this nearly to the degree you have, but, this is the first I've read that the Chinese admitted the virus did not come from the market:
"But Gao Fu, director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, didn’t say where the virus, which has killed 350,000 people worldwide, came from originally.
He told the state-controlled Global Times this week that further research shows no connections between food sold in Wuhan’s market and the coronavirus."
