Yesterday, a report was released that claimed “a virus leak from a Chinese lab in Wuhan is a credible assumption and worthy of additional investigation”. The report comes from the Wall Street Journal and is based on a classified document.

According to US media, the study was conducted last May by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, which was used by the State Department as it launched an inquiry into the Covid-19 origins.

According to the report, the assessment used genomic analysis of the Covid-19 virus.

The US government is currently speculating 2 possible scenarios…

  1. The virus happened because of a laboratory accident
  2. The virus came about via human contact with an infected animal

US President Biden says they have not reached a conclusion.

During President Trump’s tenure, there was a report that alleged 3 researchers working at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virorolgoy got so sick in November 2019 that they needed medical attention.

US officials have claimed that China has not been transparent about the virus’ origins. Beijing has denied such accusations.

However, the WHO’s Mike Ryan said yesterday that WHO cannot force China to reveal more information about Covid-19’s origins.

  1. It is time the world send the bill to China for the damage they brought to the world, humanity and economies. It needs harsh action against the criminal gangster ccp Government of China!

  2. The WHO is owned by China. If you look at the Chinese response and the refusal to cooperate in studies, I think we can assume that the virus did indeed come from a Chinese lab. The question is what to do with it. I think China is financially responsible, and we should start seizing Chinese assets abroad as compensation. In addition, a complete entry ban of everything that looks even slightly Chinese, as long as no compensation has been paid for all damage caused.

  3. Yawn. Tell us about Fort Detrick before you start pointing the finger America. Tell us about the vaping sickness that no-one else has encountered, and about the sick Mayor.

  4. @Slugger – Everything about usa is a myth, they even found UFOs around their steam boats. Apparently, that black guy with defense ministry is seeking funds to fatten someone wallets. They call it patriotism. I call it dummism.

  5. “…. the study was conducted last May by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California…”

    So neither a “US report” nor a recent one, but one which is over a year old, not updated with any of the recently available information, written by an institute funded entirely by the US Dept of Homeland Security so neither independent nor peer reviewed, whose sole declared reason for existence is to keep the US at the forefront of bigger and better nuclear weapons justified by a growing biological and security threat.

    Not exactly likely to be 100% objective, at best …..

  6. I guess the Chinese Government does not realize that if they had been truthful from day 1, the rest of the world would have been more understanding and worked together to alleviate the problem.Now, they not only look ignorant and cunning, but flat out liars. Their deviousness is coming back to bite them in their collectives fannies. They have set themselves back decades upon decades for their untruthfulness.

  7. @gosport let’s see if we can guess your nationality based on your poor use of English (which I assume is just a lazy online translator) and your overly aggressive responses…
    lol… imperialist tendencies much? So transparent these Chinese…

  8. President Trump has already demanded that China pay reparations for the plague they released on the world, accidentally or not. Let’s see if Biden has the balls to follow through.

  9. The Whuhan lab is notorious for lax safety practices, it’s virtually certain the virus came from there and not the wet market (probably on someone’s shoe) I don’t believe it was deliberate, but strange that the Chinese allowed outbound flights … Chinese leather workers travelling to Italian factories began the spread in Europe. At the very least China should be charged with criminal negligence, as this story unfolds, governments around the world will find themselves under immense pressure from their electorates to take action as the consequences of this pandemic become clearer. The WHO is complicit in the cover up … completely under control of the CCP.

  10. @J West – Biden won’t… he’s a senile old C@#t! Love him or loathe him, at least Trump had the “balls” to carry out decisions… however, the stupid “pc” brigade always kept shouting him down for just expressing what is essentially the ‘truth’…. YES, IT IS A “CHINESE VIRUS!!” Deal with it.

  11. The virus isn’t real. Its the flu, cancer, heart attacks… normal deaths called covid.

    Even the Wuhan leak story is fake. It wasn’t a bat or Biolab accident. Covid simply doesn’t exist. Other virus might exist, like the flu.

    Seeing how everyone just believes any new story the media is sharing. You all have to stop and ask, why is the media sharing this, and why now?

  12. The claim of the US is complete BS. You should google ‘first Covid cases in Italy’ and you will find a very interesting article from Reuters. But what you would expect from the fxxxing Yanks, they like to blame others without a reason and never take responsibility for their actions. This actually not makes them any different from LOScam.
