The U.S. Department of Defense confirmed that it did not know where the emerging Corona virus appeared and whether it was developed in a laboratory in Wuhan, in clear contrast to what the President of the United States, Donald Trump, says.
“Is he descended from the Wuhan Virus Laboratory? Has he appeared on the animal market in Wuhan? Has this happened anywhere else?” US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Millie told a news conference Tuesday, when asked about it. The answer to these questions is that we do not know. ”
Millie nonetheless indicated that the US government is working to uncover the truth about this issue.
Milli’s statement comes in sharp contrast to what Trump and other senior administration officials have said, which has made fierce criticism of China, accusing it of misleading the international community over the start of the virus outbreak, although the World Health Organization has repeatedly emphasized the transparency of the Chinese authorities’ handling of the issue.
Trump announced last Thursday that he saw evidence proving that the new Corona virus came from the laboratory of the Virus Institute in Wuhan, saying that the spread of the pandemic was due to Chinas failure to stop it or the will of the Chinese Communist Party in this to happen, but that the American intelligence and the World Health Organization confirmed that these The breed is a natural origin.
The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, also claimed that there was “huge evidence” that the new Corona virus came from the Wuhan laboratory, accusing Beijing of hiding information on the outbreak of the virus that killed more than 250,000 people around the world.
