Classified Report on COVID origins Inconclusive

House members also seek answers from NIH.

A classified report by United States intelligence agencies as to the origins of the COVID-19 virus yielded “inconclusive” results. “It was a deep dive, but you can only go so deep as the situation allows,” said one U.S. official. “If China’s not going to give access to certain data sets, you’re never really going to know.”

President Biden received a briefing on the report this week after ordering an investigation more than 90 days ago in hope that it would “bring us closer to a definitive conclusion” on how the virus began. Instead, the intelligence agencies reportedly struggled to find a clear determination on the origins of the virus from Wuhan.

In addition to China’s refusal to disclose important data, which they deny and deflect responsibility onto the U.S., some House members are concerned about the role the National Institutes of Health might have played in the lack of transparency surrounding the Wuhan lab.

Members of the House sent a letter to the NIH that stated, “We have significant concerns that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has not been adequately meeting its oversight responsibilities over the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) grant R01A1110964, ’Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.’ ” They said the NIH has not responded to previous requests for further information about the officials involved with the grant and responsibility for oversight of the Wuhan Institute of Virology research.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. officials and legislators as they consider the inconclusive results of the investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 virus.
  • For Congress to discover any role that U.S. government funding may have had in the research of the enhanced virus in China.
