Sources believe there is “increasing confidence” that China blamed a wet market in Wuhan to deflect how the novel coronavirus originated in a nearby government laboratory, according to a new report.
As sources familiar with China’s early actions told Fox News, the breach came not as part of an effort to construct a bioweapon, but rather as part of the Chinese Communist Party’s attempt to show its abilities to study and fight viruses was comparable to those of the United States.
There is increasing confidence that COVID-19 likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory not as a bioweapon, but as part of China’s effort to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.
This may be the “costliest government coverup of all time,” one of the sources said.
The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus was bat-to-human, and that “patient zero” worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.
The “increasing confidence” comes from classified and open-source documents and evidence, the sources said. Fox News has requested to see the evidence directly.
Asked by Fox News’ John Roberts about the reporting, President Trump remarked at Wednesday’s coronavirus press briefing, “More and more we’re hearing the story…we are doing a very thorough examination of this horrible situation.” More
President Trump’s self-sustaining, energy independence, and fair trade “America First” policies, as supported by Republicans, are indeed the right course to take to mitigate and correct this dangerous position of dependency on China. The Chinese have never had anyone else’s interest in mind. They speak globalism but really they have their own dominance at heart.
