The origins of COVID-19 have been under dispute since the very beginning of the pandemic. There were theories the virus was leaked from a lab in Wuhan, but many experts surmised it could have come from China’s wet markets. Now, nearly 15 months after the pandemic was declared, the origin story is back in the spotlight. Dr. Hazel Barton is a microbiologist at the University of Akron, and she joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about those beginnings, as well as how well the vaccines are working. Dr. Barton still believes this is an animal virus that was being worked on inside the lab, and that a virus of this magnitude could not have been created without the "genetic barcode" of the wild.
