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

Washington:

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.
