like all things in life -- The Blame Games actually is right don't blame others blame yourself -- you know it is out there -- you know it is dangerous -- protect your self with all means possible .
Man made virus?

Do you know something we don't know?

Or do you just take Donald Trump's opinions at face value?

I know that.

You appeared to be one of them by the way you stated it - as though it were a fact.

We don't usually do facts on this forum.

It was not created in a lab. But you could argue man has created the opportunity for it to exist and jump between species (wet markets etc).

Quite a kerfuffle around the world, all for the want of a big umbrella. :shock:

Mr Trump and maybe a few others might think differently

There is basically no evidence as to how it evolved originally or where and to the country of origin is not the most trust worthy much like those who accuse it .

Wee men playing in Labs are dangerous not always intentionally.

One day it didn't exist the next day it did and the guy working with warned those around of how dangerous it was before he died

The fact that you are quoting trump as one of your sources pretty much undermines any credibility you might have had.

WHO seem to think the pandemic had a zoonotic source, which would sorta remove blame from Chinese.

I think WHO are also more credible than Trump.

They may not always get things 100% right, but at least their thinking is based on sound science and medicine, unlike Trump's which is based on the first thing that comes into his head, especially if it plays to the fears of the electorate and might earn him a few extra votes. Whether it is accurate or truthful doesn't seem to enter into his mind.
