(LibertySociety.com) – The debate about how the COVID-19 pandemic began is heating up. Recently, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease expert, said he can’t say that the virus mutation happened naturally. The mainstream media is finally reporting about it as well.
On May 23, the Wall Street Journal reported on three employees at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology who allegedly became sick with symptoms mirroring COVID-19 in November 2019.
Three Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers became sick enough in November 2019 that they sought hospital care, according to a U.S. intelligence report that could add to calls for a fuller probe of whether the Covid-19 virus may have escaped from the lab https://t.co/kzvVbFQZDf

According to a US intelligence report, they needed hospital care, reportedly adding fuel to the rumors that the virus may have started in a lab.
When and how COVID-19 began has been a question for more than a year. Rumors initially circulated that it started in December 2019 in a wet market in the Wuhan province, but that was never proven. In fact, Harvard Medical School studied satellite images in 2020 that showed hospital traffic in Wuhan increased dramatically in the fall of 2019.
Very few mainstream media organizations reported the study by Harvard last year. Then the same news organizations dismissed the idea that it could have been man-made, even though former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo believed it might have begun in the Wuhan lab. Now, it seems at least the Wall Street Journal is willing to report on it. Perhaps more outlets will get on board and finally force Congress to investigate the matter.
