Senator Tom Cotton says that China is refusing to hand over evidence concerning the bio-safety level 4 research lab in Wuhan despite a new report from biological scientists at the South China University of Technology saying it may have been the source of the coronavirus outbreak.

“Here is what we do know. This virus did not originate in the Wuhan animal market,” said Cotton. “Epidemiologists who are widely respected from China published a study in the international journal Lancet have demonstrated that several of the original cases did NOT have any contact with that food market.”
“The virus went into that food market before it came out of that food market. So we don’t know where it originated… We also know that only a few miles away from that market is China’s only bio-safety Level Four Super Laboratory that researches human infectious diseases.”
China's response to the outbreak has been severe with reports that spray trucks, hoses, and bottles filled with household disinfectants like bleach were being dispatched across China.
Mass spraying of entire cities was first revealed back in January, when video of government efforts to sanitize Shanghai residential areas of coronavirus first emerged on social media.

The scientists were reportedly bitten by bats used for a test on louse. H/T: @mantaichow pic.twitter.com/uZEXHmvbTU— Ezra Cheung (@ezracheungtoto) February 15, 2020
