With suspicions growing that COVID-19 emerged from the Wuhan lab in China, President Biden is ordering US intelligence to redouble their efforts in providing a report on the origins of the outbreak within 90 days.

This is a dramatic shift for the white who had said any investigation should be done by the World Health Organisation. The President revealed that U.S. intelligence is currently split over two possible scenarios, both with low or moderate confidence. Two agencies suspecting it came from human contact with an infected animal and another leaning toward a laboratory accident.

It came after a U.S. intelligence report found that three researchers from the Wuhun Institute of Virology became sick with COVID-like symtoms and even went to the hospital right before the pandemic began.

Former President Trump endorsed the lab leak theory more than a year ago. When asked if he had seen evidence giving him high degree of confidence that the virus came from the lab he said, “Yes I have and I think that the world Health Organisation should be ashamed of themselves.”

Later a joint study between the W.H.O. and China dismissed the likelihood of the lab leak, but recently Dr. Fauci joined others now questioning China’s claim that the virus came from nature. Fauci said, “I am not convinced about that. I think we should continue to investigate what went on in China.”

President Biden suggested the inquiry and have specific questions for China.
