President Donald Trump’s administration has raised new questions about the origin of the CCP Virus (coronavirus), after reporting that researchers inside the Wuhan Virology Laboratory had similar disease symptoms weeks before the outbreak was reported.

A recent State Department report states, “The U.S. government has reason to believe that several researchers inside the WIV (Wuhan Institute of Virology) became sick in autumn 2019, before the first identified case of the outbreak, with symptoms consistent with both COVID-19 and common seasonal illnesses.”

“This raises questions about the credibility of WIV senior researcher Shi Zhengli’s public claim that there was ‘zero infection’ among the WIV’s staff and students of SARS-CoV-2 or SARS-related viruses,” State added.

Since the outbreak of the virus was announced on Dec. 31, 2019, the Trump administration raised the possibility that it had escaped from the Wuhan Virology Laboratory.

The statement about the origin of the CCP Virus in a laboratory has been corroborated by Dr. Li Meng Yang, who denounced the transmission of the virus among humans after having received the order to investigate it from her supervisor, the consultant of the World Health Organization, Leo Poon.

Meanwhile, the report added, “Accidental infections in labs have caused several previous virus outbreaks in China and elsewhere, including a 2004 SARS outbreak in Beijing that infected nine people, killing one.”

State Department officials have asked Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leaders to provide a full report on how the virus originated, while a team of investigators led by the WHO is moving into China to conduct investigations.

“For more than a year, the Chinese Communist Party [CCP] has systematically prevented a transparent and thorough investigation of the COVID-19 pandemic’s origin, choosing instead to devote enormous resources to deceit and disinformation,” the State Department report said.

“Nearly two million people have died. Their families deserve to know the truth. Only through transparency can we learn what caused this pandemic and how to prevent the next one,” the document added.

In particular, the researchers’ visit to China raised the doubts of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, who said they would probably analyze the reports of the Chinese scientists.

“This flawed scope of investigation is the result of months of negotiations over last summer and into the fall, between WHO and China, with no input from the WHO executive board,” Azar said.
