Donald Trump has said it’s ‘obvious’ that coronavirus came from a lab-related incident in Wuhan, China.
This theory has been a conspiracy since the beginning of the pandemic last year.
Speaking on the What Really Happened in Wuhan documentary by Sky News Australia, he revealed what he knew about the origins of the virus.
He said: “Some of the intelligence is classified, but common sense tells you it most likely – and when I say most likely, like 95 per cent – came from the Wuhan lab.
“I don’t know if they had bad thoughts or whether it was gross incompetence, but one way or the other, it came out of Wuhan, and it came from the Wuhan lab.
“I heard that a long time ago and if they did in fact have body bags, that was one little indication, wasn’t it?”
Trump’s claim has been backed up by the senior members of his administration, former US secretary of state Mike Pompeo, and the former director of national intelligence, John Ratcliffe.
Pompeo told the documentary: “There is enormous, albeit indirect, evidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the centre point for this.”
While Ratcliffe added: “The most likely origin of Covid-19 was a lab leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology – it’s certainly a probability, and probably a certainty.
“The Chinese Communist Party would not have shut down Wuhan. It would not have silenced doctors and scientists and journalists, and disappeared some of them.”
The first cases of coronavirus were confirmed near the Wuhan Institute of Virology in December 2019.
The World Health Organisation originally said it was ‘extremely unlikely’ the disease originated from a lab-related incident, but they said ‘all hypotheses still remain on the table’ in June.
