Fauci dismisses lab virus theory

The top infectious disease expert in the US dismissed theories that the coronavirus was either manufactured or accidentally released from a Chinese laboratory.

美国顶级传染病专家近日驳斥了新冠病毒是由中国实验室人为制造或意外泄露的理论。

Anthony Fauci, the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that available research indicates the virus evolved naturally during an interview with National Geographic on Monday.

美国国家过敏症及传染病研究所所长安东尼·福奇4日接受《国家地理》采访时称,现有研究显示新冠病毒是自然进化而成。

If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what's out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated...Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species, Fauci said.

福奇说:"通过观察蝙蝠中病毒的进化过程及病毒现在的情况,(根据这些科学证据)几乎可以肯定地说,新冠病毒并非起源于人为制造或蓄意操纵。关于病毒逐步进化的一切证据都强有力地表明,该病毒首先是自然进化,然后越界到人类。"

Based on the scientific evidence, he also doesn't entertain an alternate theory - that someone found the coronavirus in the wild, brought it to a lab, and then it accidentally escaped.
基于这些科学证据,他也不支持另一种理论,即有人在野外发现了新冠病毒,把它带到实验室,之后意外泄露。
