President Signs Bill Declassifying COVID Origins

Legislation received unanimous support in Congress. 

President Biden signed into law legislation that declassifies intelligence information about the origins of the COVID-19 virus. 

“We need to get to the bottom of COVID-19’s origins to help ensure we can better prevent future pandemics,” President Biden said. “My administration will continue to review all classified information relating to COVID–19’s origins, including potential links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” 

He added, “In implementing this legislation, my administration will declassify and share as much of that information as possible, consistent with my constitutional authority to protect against the disclosure of information that would harm national security.” 

Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, one of the sponsors of the bill, stated, “Huge victory for transparency. Now time for accountability.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. officials to be prudent in the next steps to be taken after the declassification.
  • For members of Congress as they seek transparency surrounding COVID origins.
  • For the president and his administration as they prepare for the end of the emergency declaration.
