The possibility of a lab leak origination of the coronavirus pandemic is once again being considered. Mainstream media is no longer mocking those discussing it.
The World Health Organization’s (WHO) director is now urging people not to dismiss the theory that the COVID-19 pandemic began via an accidental lab leak in Wuhan, China.
- Why the change of heart? “Lab accidents happen.”
- The WHO is now proposing a second investigation into the pandemic’s origins, including gathering more data from China.
- Germany backed up the WHO’s proposal, calling on China to “make it possible for the investigation” to continue.
- China “struck back aggressively” at any suggestions the COVID-19 virus leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology and continues to argue the virus first originated elsewhere.
- The New York Times reported an announcement by virologists who claim there is far more evidence to support the theory that the coronavirus first appeared in humans through natural animal-to-human transmission.
- While CNN reported on the continued shift in thinking inside the Biden administration that a lab leak is as likely as natural origins, Dr. Fauci is still saying natural transmission is the likely origin.
- Mediaite covered CNN’s report on the Biden administration, saying officials do not believe it was a bioweapon or intentionally released.
- RedState dissected a laughable piece of “reporting” by Chinese state media that reported on a supposed international plea to the WHO “not to politicize” the investigation.
- The Blaze noted the coverage of Biden officials now believing the lab leak theory as plausible is a “stark contrast” from mainstream media’s treatment of anyone considering the theory last year as a “conspiracy theorist.”
- OANN reported on Donald Trump Jr.’s roasting big tech for blocking user posts discussing the lab leak theory last year, rhetorically asking if those who had their accounts suspended will get their accounts back now that the lab leak theory is considered plausible by the Biden administration.
