World Health Organization Enters Damage Control Mode

The Wuhan Institute of Virology is the only biosafety lab in China that studies human coronaviruses. These viruses include RaTG13, the closest known ancestor to SARS-CoV-2, obtained from miners who fell ill with severe respiratory illness after working in a Mojiang mine in 2012

The World Health Organization’s investigative team charged with identifying the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has issued a highly-criticized report in which it dismisses the lab-accident theory offhand

Molecular biologist Richard Ebright, Ph.D., member of the Institutional Biosafety Committee of Rutgers University and the Working Group on Pathogen Security of the state of New Jersey, recently called out the members of the WHO-instigated investigative team as “participants in disinformation”

In response to growing critique, WHO director general and 13 other world leaders have joined the U.S. government in expressing “frustration with the level of access China granted an international mission to Wuhan,” and agree additional collaborative studies that include more comprehensive data sharing are needed

A number of U.S. officials have admitted that the lab-accident theory either remains the most credible, or needs to remain an option open for inquiry. These include former CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, former deputy national security adviser Matthew Pottinger, former lead investigator for the U.S. State Department’s COVID-19 task force David Asher and an assessment report by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency
