Here is a booklet-length paper on “Origin of Covid—Following the Clues", a long paper on Medium by Nicholas Wade, who writes for Nature and Science. The tagline is “Did People or Nature open the Pandora’s Box at Wuhan?”

Wade discusses furin cleavage, comparisons to earlier forms if SARS, and some statistical observations that lead to the idea that the lab has something to do with it.
