FBI sticks to lab thesis

Dhe Director of the US Federal Police FBI has confirmed an earlier assessment by its agency that a potential lab glitch in China was “most likely” responsible for the spread of the coronavirus. “The FBI has long assumed that the origin of the pandemic is most likely a possible laboratory incident in Wuhan,” Christopher Wray said in an interview with Fox News broadcaster Tuesday evening (local time). “This is about a possible leak at a Chinese government-controlled laboratory.”

Wray added that investigations are ongoing and many details could not yet be revealed. However, he wanted to note that the Chinese government had “done its best” to “hinder and cover up” the work of the US government and foreign partners. This is unfortunate for everyone.

The National Security Council’s communications director, John Kirby, made it clear on Monday that there was talk of the emergence of the Coronavirus there is still no consensus within the American government.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, the US Department of Energy has changed its assessment of the origin of the corona virus and is now assuming a possible laboratory glitch – but only with a “low” degree of certainty. China had rejected this. Beijing’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said the search for the origin of the virus is a scientific matter and should “not be politicized”.
