Biden And Inconclusive Reports On COVID-19

A classified US intelligence report delivered to President Joe Biden was inconclusive about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreover, this is inclusive to the widely-pushed theory that the virus jumped from animals to humans.

This happened due to a lack of information from China, which in the first place the deadly bug emerged in Wuhan.

Two US officials told the Washington Post, “the intelligence community was unable to reach a solid conclusion on whether

the virus had jumped to humans via bats or escaped a research facility in the central China city, In May.”

The president ordered intelligence agencies to produce a report “that could bring us closer to a definitive conclusion” on the

origins of a pandemic that has killed more than 4 million people worldwide and wreaked havoc on national economies.

Where Do The Intelligent Officials Currently Lie?

After 90 days, intelligence officials fell short of a consensus, according to the officials.

They spoke on the condition of anonymity because the report is not yet public.

They said parts of it could be declassified in the coming days.

When Biden ordered the probe, he said US intelligence agencies were divided over “two likely scenarios” —

that the virus emanated from animals or a lab.

Bug Theory

The commander-in-chief disclosed that two agencies leaned toward the theory that the bug emerged from human contact

with an infected animal, while a third leaned toward the lab accident theory.

The Trump administration brought the lab-leak theory to the fore after it was initially deemed “extremely unlikely” by the

World Health Organization and panned widely in the mainstream media.

However, in a stunning reversal earlier this month, Dr. Peter Ben Embarek, who led a team of international scientists on a

WHO-led mission to China in January admitted he now considers the possibility a “probable hypothesis.”
