Two Chinese scientists published a now deleted paper on ResearchGate that we were able to retrieve. It claims #COVID2019 / #nCoV2019 may have originated from accidental Wuhan Center of Disease Control and Prevention leakage due to high risk behavior and bad operational security.

We make no assertions about the veracity or validity of the claims in this report, but present it here in full.
Roughly an hour before the paper was published, Chinese state media began talking about the need for stronger biosecurity laws and regulations. ImageImageImage
Correction: the paper was published about 24 hours ago, Chinese state media started talking about the need for stronger biosecurity regulation at about 6pm, then the paper was brought to our attention and quickly deleted when @ezracheungtoto linked to it at roughly 7pm. Image
A link to the PDF
The PDF is hosted on a ZeroHedge SCRIBD account & we know they're an a terrible, unreliable source. Our screenshots came from @waybackmachine. Both our screenshots and the PDF were scraped from a co-author's ResearchGate account.

We don't discount the possibility that the account was hacked.
