U.S. Intelligence Does Not Believe That COVID-19 Was Manmade, Nor Genetically Altered; Still Investigating Whether Outbreak Was Due To Infection From Animals/Bats, Or A Lab Accident In Wuhan
The U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) has for the first time, publicly stated that it does not believe that COVID-19 is a manmade virus, or genetically altered in any fashion; but is conducting an ongoing investigation to determine the origin — did it originate in the Wuhan ‘wet market,’ where live animals/fish/fowl including bats are sold — or was it spread unwittingly by one of the laboratory scientists working at the Wuhan Institute for Virology. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) issued a public statement today (April 30, 2020) noting that “The Intelligence Community concurs with the wide scientific consensus that the COVID-19 was not manmade or genetically modified. The Intelligence Community will continue to rigorously examine emerging information and intelligence — to determine whether the outbreak began through contact with infected animals (bats), or if it was the result of an accident at a laboratory in Wuhan,” the statement noted.
Of course the U.S. and the world would be able to definitively determine how the outbreak occurred — IF CHINA COOPERATED. But instead, the Chinese Communist Party has not only refused to share this very critical information; but, blamed the U.S. Army for starting the outbreak in Wuhan. Knowing who patient zero is; and, how they became infected — is critical for scientists and infectious disease /virologists to know — so we can better protect ourselves against another coronavirus outbreak. I personally think all U.S. trade with China should cease unless/until China provides the necessary/verified data. RCP, fortunascorner.com
