The Hypothesis: Did COVID-19 originate on the mink farms? - Google Search
This article below is of the same opinion and it elaborates this hypothesis further.
A lot of work is needed to confirm or refute this hypothesis but it should remain the working assumption.
In 2003, China seems to have twisted the facts to incriminate the civet, in an effort to divert attention from its fur industry
Information and news were evidently filtered and adapted to the needs of the Chinese government
The most plausible intermediate host would be mink, recent research says
Over 3,000 mink farms in China, some with over 100,000 animals
- Mink – here, a chinese one- can both contract the virus from humans and infect them in return, very often generating mutations in the process.
