The US locates the origin of the covid in a Chinese laboratory
He United States Department of Energy has joined other federal agencies such as the FBI in its conclusion that covid "most likely" originated from a leak in a chinese laboratoryThe Wall Street Journal reported today.
The newspaper, which cites "a classified intelligence report recently provided to the White House and key members of the (US) Congress," notes that four other US departments continue to believe that the coronavirus outbreak was probably the result of natural transmission, while two others remain undecided.
The New York newspaper points out that the conclusion of the Department of Energy is the result of reading new intelligence data and it finds this finding significant because this agency oversees a network of 17 US national laboratories, some of which carry out advanced biological research.
However, the Journal points out that the Department of Energy makes this assertion with "low confidence"while when the FBI reached the same conclusion in 2021 it rated its confidence level as "moderate."
Depending on the quality of the information and its provenance, the US intelligence services usually assign three levels of confidence to their conclusions: high, moderate and low. The National Security Adviser of the White HouseJake Sullivan refused to confirm or deny the veracity of the information published by The Wall Street Journal.
In an interview this Sunday on CNN, Sullivan limited himself to pointing out that US intelligence has not yet reached a rdefinitive answer on the origin of covid-19 And while some agencies believe the virus originated in a laboratory, others say they don't have enough information to make a conclusion.
The President of the USA, Joe Biden, At the beginning of his term, in May 2021, he asked the intelligence community to investigate the origins of the pandemic.
