The global community is still debating the source of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the FBI has recently weighed in with its opinion. On Wednesday, the FBI Director stated that the virus likely originated from a lab leak in Wuhan, China.
However, China has scoffed at the FBI’s suggestion, saying that the claim is not based in science. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) has called for a briefing on the Department of Energy’s lab leak report, in order to better understand the situation.
Meanwhile, the media has been criticized for not taking the lab leak theory seriously enough. An editorial from the Chicago Tribune stated that the media was “ideologically blinded” when it came to the lab leak theory.
Finally, Fox News has suggested that China should pay the ultimate price for unleashing the virus on the world.
The debate over the source of the pandemic is far from over, and the global community is eagerly awaiting further developments.
