Administration Halts COVID-19 Origins Probe

State Department says interagency evaluations continue.

President Biden’s administration has stopped a State Department investigation launched last year into whether the coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab.  The inquiry was halted over concerns about the “quality of the work.” The probe into the vaccine’s origins was an effort to investigate whether China’s biological weapons program could have played a greater role in the pandemic’s origin in Wuhan.

The State Department said the decision to terminate the inquiry was made after administration officials were briefed on the team’s draft findings in February and March. “Even though this discrete project has concluded, the State Department continues to work with the interagency to look into the COVID origins issue,” department spokesperson Ned Price said.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Blinken as he heads the State Department’s diplomatic efforts with China.
  • For the scientists and investigators conducting independent assessments into the source of the virus.
