A newly-unclassified report summary from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence states that there is ‘modern confidence’ COVID came from a Wuhan lab. This theory has been discounted by Democrats and the media, who laughed at the completely plausible idea that the virus which ravaged the world escaped from a lab in China. But, it appears, we (and Trump) were right.
“One IC element,” the report says, “assesses with moderate confidence that the first human infection with SARS-CoV-2 most likely was the result of a laboratory-associated incident, probably involving experimentation, animal handling, or sampling by the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
The classified version of the report Joe Biden received seems to be pretty jarring. Biden, who originally discounted the “lab” theory and eventually ordered a full investigation into COVID-19’s origins, released a statement on Friday that seems to indicate the seriousness of the situation.
“Critical information about the origins of this pandemic exists in the People’s Republic of China,” Biden says. “Yet from the beginning, government officials in China have worked to prevent international investigators and members of the global public health community from accessing it. To this day, the PRC continues to reject calls for transparency and withhold information.”
“The world deserves answers, and I will not rest until we get them. Responsible nations do not shirk these kinds of responsibilities to the rest of the world,” he continues. “Pandemics do not respect international borders, and we all must better understand how COVID-19 came to be in order to prevent further pandemics.”
It’s unclear if the virus was released accidentally or if something more insidious was at play. But one thing is certain: China will one day have to answer for what they did to the world.
