Biden Orders Close Review of COVID-19 Origins

President Joe Biden has ordered a closer intelligence review of the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Biden also revealed that earlier this year, per CNBC, he asked the intelligence community to assess whether COVID-19 emerged from human contact with an infected animal or whether it emerged from a laboratory accident. Increasingly, there are more and more people saying we need to study whether this was manmade. It's really important to understand that these are all different theories and that it’s not a currently held belief by infectious disease experts that COVID was manmade. But there is increasing evidence that makes the “lab leak” theory — that it was accidentally released — sound more likely than previously thought. We want the truth and have always wanted to know the truth about this virus. If newly revealed evidence suggests something other than the original hypothesis, it makes perfect sense to want to research it further and to be open to alternative possibilities.

There are three plausible theories as to the origins of the virus: Option one, which is still the predominant theory, is that there was contact spread from an animal to humans and humans were able to spread it among themselves from there. Scenario number two is that this came from an animal and was being studied in a lab, possibly in Wuhan, and due to an accident, it leaked and spread eventually to reach the worldwide human population. And then there is scenario three, the most conspiratorial option and the one for which we have no evidence, which is that this was released as a human-made bioweapon by China. That last one doesn’t really pass the sniff test for a number of reasons but now this possibility and all others are going to be investigated by the Biden administration and we’ll see what comes of it.
