The covid-19 lab leak hypothesis: did the media fall victim to a misinformation campaign?

BMJ 2021; 374 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.n1774 (Published 12 July 2021) Cite this as: BMJ 2021;374:n1774

Box 2 in this feature article (BMJ 2021;374:n1656, doi:10.1136/bmj.n1656) has been updated to clarify an earlier version which reported that China had notified the World Health Organization on 31 December 2019 of cases of pneumonia of unknown aetiology in Wuhan City. As The BMJ does not know by which route WHO was first notified of the cases, the article now reads, “31 December 2019: WHO is notified of cases of pneumonia of unknown aetiology in Wuhan City.”
