If this was possible in Wuhan 2018/19 is debatable. However, Shi Zhengli had 2 grants to investigate which manipulations enable bat viruses to go pandemic.
Although this is not ultimate proof that SARS2 was build in a lab. It’s yet another BIG smoking gun inconsistent with natural evolution. Virologists seem to be ok with condemning origin theories in @Nature with zero evidence these days.
The reason that we do not know for sure is not the lack of evidence, it’s the lack of access to the evidence!
