“There is important information about the origin of this epidemic in the People’s Republic of China, but from the beginning, Chinese government officials have been working to prevent international researchers and members of the global public health community from accessing it,” Biden said.
“To date, the People’s Republic of China has rejected calls for transparency and withheld information, yet the number of victims of this epidemic continues to rise,” he added.
Nearly 4.5 million people have died from Govt-19 since the first case of the disease was reported in December 2019 by the World Health Organization office in China.
A confidential statement was issued Tuesday to Biden, who gave U.S. intelligence services 90 days to “redouble their efforts” to explain the origins of Govt-19.
The report concludes by saying that the corona virus was not designed “as a biological weapon” and “probably” not “genetically” designed.
But the U.S. intelligence community has not yet reached a consensus on whether the first case came naturally to the victim animal or was caused by a laboratory accident.
In particular, the four intelligence agencies and the National Intelligence Council believe that the animal hypothesis is the most “possible” with the least confidence.
To justify their assessment, competent organizations have relied specifically on China’s ignorance of the “multiple vectors of exposure to animals” and the existence of the virus prior to its appearance.
“The U.S. intelligence community believes Chinese officials had no prior knowledge of the virus before the outbreak began,” the summary reads.
However, another intelligence agency considers a laboratory leak thesis to be more credible “with a moderate confidence”, “probably” through experiments, animal manipulation or the Wuhan Institute of Virology. ”
Finally, the other three agencies did not comment on any of the hypotheses.
According to the summary of the report, the intelligence services are considered to be “unable to provide a more accurate explanation” of the origin of the corona virus without the “new information” provided by China.
U.S. intelligence has no clue as to the origin of the Kovit-19 virus
