Just weeks from President Biden’s deadline for the intelligence community’s review of COVID-19’s origins, the House Foreign Affairs Committee has dropped a bombshell report revealing new information that strongly supports the once-fringe lab leak theory.
According to Fox News, Republicans on the Foreign Affairs Committee have built an argument that suggests the virus escaped the Wuhan lab “sometime prior to September 12, 2019.”
“On that day, Wuhan University…issued a notice for laboratory inspections. Hours later, the WIV’s viral sequence database disappeared from the internet. Later that evening, the institute published an announcement for bids for ‘security services’ at the lab ‘to include gatekeepers, guards, video surveillance, security patrols, and people to handle the ‘registration and reception of foreign personnel,’” according to the report.
The committee also reviewed satellite imagery to track the progress of the outbreak.
According to the report, imagery of Wuhan between September and October 2019 shows spikes in hospital visits and internet searches for COVID-19 symptoms. “The report also claims that mapping data suggesting researchers at the lab likely used the Wuhan shuttle bus and city metro for their daily work commute, spreading the virus throughout the city,” according to Fox.
Ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) shared information from the bombshell report on Monday, calling it the “greatest cover-up in human history.”
All major mainstream media news outlets, with the exception of Fox News, failed to report on the committee’s findings.
