[Compiled by Zhou Hongwen/Comprehensive Report]At the order of US President Biden to lead the investigation of the origin of the Wuhan pneumonia virus, Avril Haines, the head of national intelligence, said in an exclusive interview with “Yahoo News” on the 21st, that the world has nearly four The truth about the death of millions of people may remain a mystery forever.

On the 26th of last month, Biden instructed intelligence agencies to trace the source of the epidemic through natural animal-to-human transmission and Chinese laboratory virus leakage, requiring a report within 90 days. As the commander of the US intelligence system and a background in physics, Haynes responded to this for the first time, “I don’t know which of the two seemingly credible theories is the correct answer”; she frankly admitted that the intelligence community is “absolutely.” There is no evidence of “high confidence”, “we hope to find conclusive evidence,” but “it is very challenging to do this,” and “it may happen, but it may not.”

The U.S. intelligence community believed in laboratory leaks at the beginning of the outbreak, and Biden’s order last month also shows that the U.S. government is seriously considering the possibility of this. In addition to the two directions Biden instructed, Haynes did not rule out the third possibility: scientists contacted animals for sampling and contracted the virus, but if there is no decisive conclusion in the end, she will “have no choice” to give Biden and other high-level officials ” Unsatisfactory” answer.

When the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Foqi, was interviewed by the New York Times on the 21st, he continued to support the theory of natural origin, saying that he had not seen evidence to support laboratory venting. But he said that as a scientist, he cannot rule out any possibility, and he also supports Biden’s order to investigate.
