President Joe Biden on Wednesday ordered the US intelligence agency to report to China for the first time in three months that the Covid 1 virus had been used from an animal source or from a laboratory accident in China.
“We must continue our efforts to gather and analyze information that can lead us to a definite conclusion and report back to me in 90 days,” Bisen said in a statement issued by the White House. ”
According to Biden, the agencies are currently divided into two possible sources that swept the planet last year and killed more than 4.3 million people – a fact that experts say is certainly a low estimate.
Biden’s order signals growing controversy over how the virus first appeared – in the Wuhan market in China through contact with animals or when the coronavirus was released from a highly secure research laboratory in the same city.
Republicans have used laboratory theory to attack the Beijing attack in northern China, and China has not been responsible for the epidemic, and it has had a profound effect on both sides of US politics.
Biden said in March he had asked for a report on the origin of the virus, which he said was “whether it came from human contact with an infected animal or from a laboratory accident.”
“To date, the US intelligence community has been working on two possible scenarios, but it has not reached any conclusions,” he said.
