I thought the second possibility was a hoax, but I understand that the Department of Defense isn’t so sure. (In any case, the controls around the Chinese labs were tightened.)
While many think this virus will mitigate in the summer, the consensus is that no one is sure if that is the case. We apparently have no immunity to it, and a vaccine likely is around 18 months away.
