  "abstract": "<p>The Origins of SARS-CoV-2: A Critical Review</p>\n\n<p>Holmes et al.</p>\n\n<p>Since the first reports of a novel SARS-like coronavirus in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, there has been intense interest in understanding how SARS-CoV-2 emerged in the human population. Recent debate has coalesced around two competing ideas: a &ldquo;laboratory escape&rdquo; scenario and zoonotic emergence. Here, we critically review the current scientific evidence that may help clarify the origin of SARS-CoV-2.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>",
