Wildly contradictory new stories about origin of Covid appear in respectable media

Conflicting stories today in the controversy over the source of Covid19.

This shows just how difficult objective assessment is.

From Huffington Post, by Mary Pappenfuss, a summary claiming new analysis shows Covid19 starred with a worker at a wet market in Wuhan in early December 2019 handling animals. This links to analysis by Dr. Michael Worobey at the University of Arizona claiming to identify the patient zero.  Note the skeptical comments.

But then a story by Brian McGleenon in Express UK claims that China had possession of the Laos virus in the fall of 2019, blowing open the lab leak theory.
