Found origin of COVID virus

I have come across an article from January 2019 that mentions that the SARS-cov-2 virus causing the pandemic was created in a lab in the University of North Carolina.

It is at No.6 on the list, Somehow the virus ended up in a lab in China and was released there. Also the article mentions a list of other deadly viruses created in labs.

The author doesn’t seem very credible to me. I would check his sources.

It must be one of these, in this order of likelihood since they are blaming the USA:
A North Korean
A Russian
An Iranian
A Syrian

Then what about this article from 2015


or this

There could be two possibilities, either it was lab made, or mutated to be like the one made in a lab.
