Current evidence shows that covid originated from a Wuhan lab in China, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated over the weekend, warning about the risks of bioterror coming from the region is “very real.”
Pompeo spoke to Maria Bartiromo and said that the CCP “covered up” the source of covid and that evidence keeps showing that despite their attempts to block access to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the doctors who worked there.
“We tried to get evidence, we tried to partner with China. But they covered it up horribly,” Pompeo said.
He said this combination of evidence and China’s overwhelming effort to block any information relating to the lab shows that the virus came from the lab.
“I have not seen even the slightest evidence to show anything to the contrary,” Pompeo said.
The former secretary of state also warned about the future possibility of biological terrorism and warfare.
“The risk of something like this happening again from a Chinese laboratory is very real,” Pompeo said. “They are conducting activities that are inconsistent with their ability to secure their facilities. And the risk of bioterror coming from this region is very real.”
It is unclear exactly where the virus came from as Biden administration officials show concerns about Chinese interference with global investigative efforts.
