The Republican party is divided on how to respond to a recent report that suggests the COVID-19 pandemic may have originated from a lab leak. The report, released by the US Department of Energy, has sparked a debate within the GOP about the implications of the findings.
Adding to the debate is a statement from Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who claims that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) government “intentionally released” the virus “all over the world.”
Meanwhile, a report from FOX 5 New York claims that the lab leak was the origin of the pandemic.
The Chicago Tribune has published an editorial criticizing the media for not taking the lab-leak theory seriously.
Finally, an MSNBC article argues that the assessment by the US Department of Energy is not a “smoking gun” for the GOP.
The debate over the lab leak report and its implications continues, with the full coverage available on USNN.
