The GOP is sounding the alarm that coronavirus did not develop naturally. Several Republican congressmen and former Trump White House officials responded to a report published recently that alleged three scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology reported symptoms close to COVID-19 in November of 2019. This happened right before coronavirus became a global pandemic.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology & Wuhan CDC need to open their doors & databases for a full audit of their research—especially dangerous gain-of-function research.
The CCP needs to stop obstructing investigators, destroying evidence, and telling ridiculous lies.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton (Ark.) encouraged people to use common sense while saying it would be a huge coincidence if the virus naturally occurred close to a lab that tests viruses exactly like Covid.
Former FDA head, Scott Gottlieb, said this is in line with growing evidence pointing to the Wuhan lab as a potential ground zero.
Gottlieb also wanted people to open their minds to this evidence while arguing that the theory of the virus starting from an animal is looking less likely as more details come out.
“A year ago that type of comment might have made some sense, but we have not found the intermediate host,” he said. “There is no evidence of this virus being in an animal…we have not found the real source of the virus.”
Mike Pompeo said he and other top Trump officials saw evidence pointing to the Wuhan lab early in the pandemic.
However, Pompeo said a group of scientist, including Dr. Fauci, pushed the animal origin theory. He said their narrative was pushed throughout the nation by the media.
“We must get to the bottom of this before it happens again, they are still doing research in these same labs,” Pompeo said. “It is being done just like a year ago…this is very dangerous.”
