A group of international researchers are pushing for a “proper investigation” into the origins of COVID-19, including examining the lab accident theory that was all but dismissed in a World Health Organization (WHO) investigation.
The letter adds to the growing efforts seeking a full inquiry into the origins of the CCP virus, which causes COVID-19; critics have said the WHO investigation lacked independence and allowed Beijing to be less than fully transparent.
Lab Escape TheoryOfficials in the United States and elsewhere have cast attention on the lab accident theory despite Beijing’s effort to disassociate such links.
Pompeo noted that the Chinese regime has “a history of running sub-standard laboratories.”
“These are not the first times that we have had the world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab,” he said. He declined to say whether he believes the virus was intentionally released.
