For the last year or more, we were seeing so many posts from people in Central Minnesota and all over the rest of the country about COVID origins and that it was possibly generated in a lab or in other words, a man made virus.

In February, Facebook banned these posts and would delete them automatically, saying that is was "false claim" or that whatever theory was posted was debunked by whatever source.  Now, as of yesterday (Wednesday), Facebook will not stop deleting these claims.

The reason for this, as reported by ABC news,  there is another investigation into the COVID origin.  Like where did it come from? What started it, and how did it spread?

"In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made from our apps," a Facebook company spokesperson said in a statement. "We're continuing to work with health experts to keep pace with the evolving nature of the pandemic and regularly update our policies as new facts and trends emerge."

I have heard so many people, when this first was starting to be talked about in Minnesota back in March of 2020.  I heard many comments about how this was a hoax and the virus wasn't real.  I don't hear too much of that anymore, I think most people do realize that it is real, the question is mostly how fatal or dangerous or even how contagious the virus is.  There seems to be much debate about that issue.  Also where it originated.  Bats? Lab? Or some other place.  Now the investigation has been reopened and more theories will given.
