US intelligence has published a report on the origin of COVID-19
US intelligence has completed an investigation into the origin of a new coronavirus infection. According to Reuters, the relevant excerpts from the report to US President Joe Biden were published on Friday, August 27.
It is noted that the intelligence community has not come to a consensus on the origin of the virus. вЂњAll departments believe that two hypotheses are plausible: natural contact with an infected animal and an incident in the laboratory,вЂќ the document says. At the same time, American intelligence is confident that COVID-19 was not developed as a biological weapon.
The report notes that the Chinese authorities did not know about the coronavirus before the outbreak of the pandemic. According to the American intelligence community, it is impossible to establish the exact origin of COVID-19 without the cooperation of China. At the same time, it is noted that the actions of the Chinese authorities in this matter demonstrate Beijing's uncertainty about the final results of the investigation.
