How come other car manufacturers get a pass on a wait and see statistic but VAG has to recall, is there something more nefarious & dangerous about VAG than the rest?
Not sure. I think it's kinda like asking why VAG got such penalties for "cycle beating" the emissions tests while everyone else seems to be getting a pass?

Anthony Fauci just crushed Donald Trump's theory on the origins of the coronavirus

The two are not mutually exclusive. Did it originate in bats? Probably. But it's a known fact that the Wuhan lab doing experiments on corona viruses that originated in bats and stored many varieties of such viruses. Is it "man-made"? I guess it depends on how you define that term. Did it escape from the Wuhan lab? Seems entirely plausible, especially when you consider stuff like this:

Oh, and as far as Dr. Fauci, don't get me started on him.

Do you think it's a basis to allow an escape for insurance companies?
I don't think it makes any difference; insurance companies are not gonna pay "business interruption" policies either way. Businesses were not closed by any sort of natural disaster, but rather by government edict.
