China Responds To U.S. Energy Department’s Revised Wuhan Lab Leak Theory

  • “Certain parties should stop rehashing the ‘lab leak’ narrative, stop smearing China and stop politicizing origins-tracing,” Ning said after defending the joint WHO-China report she claimed was received by the international community.
  • U.S. Energy Department officials revised a previous document that judged with “low confidence” that the virus had leaked from a Chinese laboratory.
  • The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday that new classified intelligence recently provided to the White House and key members of Congress showed Energy Department officials shifted its assessment of the pandemic’s origins in an updated 2021 report by Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines’s office.
