American Believe Covid-19 is a Lab-grown Disease #infographic

According to a recent PewResearch Center study, over a quarter of Americans believe the coronavirus was developed in a laboratory – about 29 per cent. Six per cent thought it may have been inadvertently made, while 23 per cent claimed it was deliberately created.

A large population though – about 43 percent of American adults said the virus was spontaneously developed. Twenty-five per cent of respondents remained unsure about how COVID-19 was made.

The survey also noted the respondents' age, gender, and political affiliation, and found that those factors played a major role in the perception of the participant. Here, 27% of Americans aged between the ages of 18 – 29 said the virus was created in the laboratory while only 15% of seniors – aged 65 and older believed the same thing.

When it comes to schooling, 27 percent of participants graduating from high school assumed the virus was created from the laboratory while only 15 percent replied the same with a college degree.

Ironically, 30% of Republicans said the virus was developed in a laboratory, compared with just 16% of Democrats.

The COVID-19 virus appeared in China's Wuhan district and has been the subject of much speculation. Because of the strained relationship between China and America, many people wonder if the Chinese government intentionally created the disease, or accidentally released it.

Declared a WHO pandemic, the coronavirus-or COVID-19 is a infectious, respiratory disease. As of this date, over 1,487,000 cases and 88,630 deaths have been caused by the ailment. China, the virus' development region, eventually managed to contain the virus. Nevertheless, other nations around the world are experiencing the dramatic consequences of the pandemic being the worst-hit with Italy, the USA, and Spain.
