There was “absolutely no evidence” to support the Wuhan super lab COVID-19 leak theory, a British zoologist has told CNN.

"There is no evidence that this was a virus created in a lab,” said Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance, a scientific research organization researching the connections between human, animal and environmental health.

There was no evidence at all the coronavirus was even in the lab, said Daszak, a member of the WHO expert team that went to Wuhan in February this year.

"We know everything they do and we know that they do not have that virus in the lab prior to this SARS outbreak," said Daszak, who has worked with the Wuhan Institute of Virology for 15 years.

He found no evidence of anyone from the lab saying untruths or “even hinting of anything untoward at the lab,” he said.

"It just didn't happen," he told the US media channel.
