House Republicans have released an addendum to their Origins of COVID-19 (pdf) report released last year, concluding that evidence points to a leak from a Chinese lab as the source of the outbreak.
The updated report also says that Wuhan lab researchers, CCP officials, and “potentially American citizens” all “directly engaged in efforts to obfuscate information related to the origins of the virus and to suppress public debate of a possible lab leak.”
Some Republicans have criticized White House for ‘vague threats and cheap talk’ . The White House said the United States and allies will “work together” to “exercise the necessary pressure on China” amid the global investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, urging Beijing to be a “participant” and provide “transparent data and access” in the probe. The comments come after White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said China would face “isolation in the international community” if they do not cooperate with further probes into the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.
