I don't see anything to suggest this is an engineered virus, and I see no
need to conjure up weird hypothesis to explain a new virus suddenly
appearing in the human population. This sort of thing has been occurring for
thousands of years. And the researchers in The Lancet article
specifically say:

*"2019-nCoV is sufficiently divergent from SARS-CoV to be considered a new
human-infecting betacoronavirus. Although our phylogenetic analysis
suggests that bats might be the original host of this virus, an animal sold
at the seafood market in Wuhan might represent an intermediate host
facilitating the emergence of the virus in humans." *
