Suspicion Over COVID-19 Origin Broadens

Suspicion Over COVID-19 Origin Broadens

(ReliableNews.org) – There are many questions surrounding the spread of COVID-19. As time goes on, it has become apparent the Chinese government knew about the coronavirus outbreak long before they mentioned it to any other country. In fact, the US government believes the Communists hid it in order to hoard supplies from around the world so they were better prepared to battle it.

That means they left all of their allies completely unprepared. That’s the best-case scenario. The worst case is almost unimaginable but it’s getting support from a surprising place.

US Questions Narrative

In early May, President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo started questioning the origin of the coronavirus.

On May 3, the secretary of state told ABC’s “This Week,” that there was “…enormous evidence” showing the virus was actually created in a lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. President Trump said he saw the evidence of how it happened and has initiated a US investigation. Now, a former leader of the British intelligence agency MI6 is agreeing with the theory as well.

Support From Europe

Sir Richard Dearlove spoke to The Telegraph’s Planet Normal podcast and said he also believes the virus was created intentionally in a Chinese lab.

As far as the spread of COVID-19, he thinks that part was an accident and cited a peer-reviewed paper by Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen and Professor Angus Dalgleish. The paper reportedly claims the virus was altered to “bind” to humans.

What Now?

It’s unlikely the US will allow this to go unpunished if it happened the way he thinks. More than 100,000 people in the US are dead and millions are suffering from the economic fallout.

The pandemic has caused catastrophic damage while officials in Beijing are just carrying on as usual. If these claims turn out to be true, the Chinese government should pay for the economic damage and lives lost.

How should the world force them to do that? How much is a life worth? Those are the questions many of us are asking ourselves. To be honest, the answers aren’t clear, but be sure President Trump has a plan.
