U.S. Intelligence Report Fails To Pinpoint COVID’s Origins


The US intelligence community has failed to draw definitive conclusions about the exact origin of COVID19 and is divided on whether it leaked from a Chinese laboratory or emerged in the nature, although it does not believe the virus developed as a biological weapon based on the results of a detailed review ordered by the President of the United States, Joe Biden.

The Director of National Intelligence in a report on Friday said SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, probably emerged and infected humans through an initial small-scale exposure that occurred no later than November 2019 with the first known cluster of COVID-19 cases arising in Wuhan, China in December 2019.

However, there was no unanimity among the intelligence community (IC) on the origins of the coronavirus.
