On Sunday, the Wall Street Journal released a report on the origins of the virus originating in Wuhan, China at the end of 2019 and being spread worldwide on a large scale in early 2021.
According to the report, United States intelligence found that three researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China became sick with the Chinese virus symptoms in November 2019 and sought medical care.
Business Insider reports, “The Journal said the new details added to information from a State Department fact sheet issued in the last days of President Donald Trump’s administration. It added that officials familiar with the report did not agree on the strength of the evidence found.”
President Trump was asked by a reporter in April 2020, just one month into the heat of the pandemic, “Have you seen anything that gives you a high degree of confidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the origin of this virus?”
President Trump responded, “Yes, yes I have. Yes, I have. And I think that the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves. Because they’re like the public relations agency for China. And this country pays them almost $500 million a year and China pays them $38 mill a year, and whether it’s a lot or more, it doesn’t matter. And still, they shouldn’t be making excuses when people make horrible mistakes, especially mistakes that are causing hundreds of thousands of people around the world to die. I think the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves.”
According to Business Insider, the World Health Organization “spent a month in Wuhan investigating the origin of the coronavirus and concluded that the virus most likely jumped from bats to people through an intermediary animal.” It said that a lab leak was “extremely unlikely.”
It appears President Trump was right about the Wuhan lab origins of the China virus.
