The Biden administration is facing questions about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, as new reports suggest that the virus may have escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.
The U.S. Department of Energy has allegedly presented a classified report to the White House and members of Congress, concluding that the pandemic was the result of a lab leak.
This view is shared by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and several other agencies, but not all intelligence panels agree.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been criticized by Republicans for his handling of the pandemic, has previously stated that he believes the virus came about naturally, but has not ruled out the possibility of a lab leak. Despite the controversy, he has stated that he has “nothing to hide” and is willing to testify before Congress.
