- The global COVID-19 pandemic originated from a virology lab in run by the communist regime in China, according to a new U.S. Energy Dept. document, which was recently provided to key members of Congress and the White House, according to the Wall Street Journal.
- The document’s findings, which were are less than five pages, were memorialized in an update to a 2021 document by Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines’s office, and mark a major shift in how the government was previously viewing the pandemic’s origins.
In the past, the government and mainstream media have traditionally adopted the formal CCP line that the virus originated from a nearby food market. While the new report illuminates how different components of the U.S. intelligence community have come to different conclusions about how the pandemic started, the Energy Department now joins the Federal Bureau of Investigation in saying the virus likely spread via the Wuhan Virology Laboratory.
