The Pentagon is investigating the possibility that the deadly coronavirus, which is now killing thousands of Americans every day, came from the biological research laboratory in Wuhan.
Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has confirmed that the DoD is looking into the theory that the virus was leaked out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
Milley made the comments at a press briefing broadcast by PBS Tuesday.
Watch from the 20 minute mark:
“There’s a lot of rumor and speculation in a wide variety of media, blog sites, etc.,” said Milley, adding “It should be no surprise to you that we have taken a keen interest in that, and we have had a lot of intelligence take a hard look at that.”
“At this point it’s inconclusive, although the weight of evidence seems to indicate natural, but we do not know for sure,” Milley added.
Dr. Deborah Birx, one of the faces of America’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, said that the WHO “had to know” that there had been human to human transmission despite them amplifying Chinese propaganda back in January that this hadn’t happened.
“ they had to have known that there was human-to-human transmission…why wasn’t there this level of transparency when this virus exploded”
