A July 27 A-section article about the origins of the coronavirus pandemic incorrectly quoted scientist Kristian Andersen, who said “plausible,” not “possible,” when discussing his conclusion that the virus began its spread at a market in China. The quote should have read: “It’s not a formal proof, again, but it is so strong in my opinion that any other version, a lab leak for example, would have to be able to explain all this evidence,” he said. “It’s just not plausible.”
