FBI Director Christopher Wray said Wednesday that the agency believes the COVID-19 pandemic began due to a leak from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
COVID-19 first erupted in China in late 2019 before leaping worldwide early the following year. Initially, China
claimed the source of the virus was a market selling exotic animals in Wuhan.
Contrary opinions arose that the virus emerged from a research lab in Wuhan.
During the debate over the origin of the virus, advocates of the lab leak theory were initially derided as conspiracy theorists
until over time evidence emerged that gave credence to their view.
On Sunday 26th , the Wall Street Journal reported that the Department of Energy believes the virus escaped from
the lab, citing a classified intelligence report given to Congress and the White House.
The Journal report said the FBI also believes the virus leaked from the lab.
On Wednesday, Wray told Fox News host Brett Baier that the agency is in fact on the side of those who believe
the virus was manufactured and not natural.
“The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely
a potential lab incident in Wuhan,” Wray said.
“We step back for a second.
The FBI has folks, agents, professionals, analysts, virologists, microbiologists, etcetera
who focus specifically on the dangers of biological threats, which include things like novel
viruses like COVID and the concerns that in the wrong hands — some bad guys, a hostile nation-state, a terrorist,
a criminal, the threat that those could pose,” Wray said.
Musk drew the ire of the state-run Global Times when he commented on a tweet concerning the American
role in funding research that took place at Wuhan.
The Global Times warned Musk that he could be “breaking the pot of China,” which CNBC was akin to the saying
not “to bite the hand that feeds you.”
In a recent interview with the Boston Globe, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who at one point denigrated the lab leak theory,
stated “we may not ever know” the virus’s origin.
