Another piece of the puzzle, but my immediate thought was "Where did the raccoon dog get it? From another animal, or from a person infected by a lab-leaked virus?"

And the investigation continues...

“This isn’t an infected animal,” said Joel Wertheim, an evolutionary biologist at the University of California, San Diego and a co-author of the report, referring to the new genetic data. “But this is the closest you can get without having the animal in front of you.”

Frederic Bushman, a microbiologist at the University of Pennsylvania who also specializes in sequencing techniques, agreed that the report’s methods were sound.

“I think the simplest explanation is that it’s an infected raccoon dog,” he said. “I don’t think it’s absolute proof.”
