A report said that American intelligence found that three researchers at the Wuhan laboratory had become so ill that they were hospitalized just before the coronovirus epidemic began.
The Trump administration and Republicans have put forward the “lab leaks” theory of viruses that escaped from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology during the epidemic.
According to The Wall Street Journal, current and former acquaintances have expressed differing opinions on lab researchers’ evidence of the November 2019 disease.
An official said that the intelligence came from an international US partner, but it requires further investigation.
But another person told the newspaper that intelligence is much stronger than that.
“The information we were getting from various sources was of the best quality. It was very accurate. It did not tell you why they fell ill, ”the insider said.
Experts say that November 2019 is almost when the virus started infecting people in Wuhan, while the Chinese government says that the first confirmed case occurred on 8 December 2019.
The Wuhan Institute, which does significant research on coronaviruses in bats, has not made public its data, lab records, or security logs in the wake of the global pandemic.
The Chinese government has strongly denied that the virus has escaped from one of its labs and attacked the theory, even claiming that it came from an American laboratory.
Joe Biden has said that he fully supports the World Health Organization’s investigation of the outbreak of the White House virus, which has now killed more than 589,000 people in the United States.
Following the report, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that he was “not convinced” that the Kovid-19 developed naturally and called for a full investigation.
Katie Sanders of PolitiFact asked Dr. Fauci if she “still believed it developed naturally” during the “United Facts of America: A Festival of Fact Checking” event.
“Actually not. I am not convinced about that, I think we should continue to investigate what happened in China until we continue to find out what happened, to the best of our ability.” They said.
Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, made the comment earlier this month, but they were largely underreported at the time.
He said, “Of course, the people who investigated it said that it probably originated from the reservoir of an animal that was then an infected person, but it could have been something else, and we had to detect it Is required.”
“So, you know, that’s why I said that I am in favor of any investigation that looks into the origin of the virus.”
The Biden administration declined to comment on the report, but said all credible theories should be investigated.
“We have serious questions about the early days of the COVID-19 epidemic, including its origins within the People’s Republic of China,” a National Security Council spokesman told The Independent.
“The world needs to understand how this epidemic occurred so that we can better prepare our governments, our people and our public health institutions for future health crises.
“We are therefore working within the WHO and with other member states to support a science-based and expert-driven assessment of the genesis of the epidemic that is free from interference or politicization.
“We are not going to make announcements that affect the ongoing WHO study in the source of SARS-CoV-2, but we are clear that sound and technically reliable theories should be thoroughly evaluated by international experts.”
