Trump and U.S. intelligence disagree over the origin of coronavirus
US President Donald Trump said he saw evidence that coronavirus was developed at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. At a press conference in the White House, he said that the Chinese authorities either could not stop the spread of the virus, or decided that it was not worth it. Writes about it with the BBC.
A journalist asked President Trump if he had seen data highly likely to indicate that the Wuhan Institute of Virology could be the source of the new coronavirus. “Yes,” the president replied. - I saw, I saw.
“China may have made a mistake, or it may have started by mistake, and they made another mistake. Or someone did it on purpose, ”added Trump.
Meanwhile, the office of the director of US National Intelligence, which oversees the activities of US intelligence, concluded that the coronavirus was not created in the laboratory or genetically modified.
Intelligence services, as stated in the statement, agree with the opinion of the vast majority of scientists who believe that the virus arose in vivo and was then transmitted to humans.
This is the first response of the American intelligence services to conspiracy theories circulating in both the USA and China that the virus could be artificially created in a Chinese laboratory and released into the world.
