BREAKING: New Congressional Report Says 'Preponderance of Evidence' Supports COVID Wuhan Lab Leak in Sept. 2019


According to a new bombshell Congressional report, a preponderance of evidence supports that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan lab in September of 2019. 

The 84-page report shows “a preponderance of the evidence proves that all roads lead” to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which has been at the center of the COVID controversy over the last year. 

“It is our belief the virus leaked sometime in late August or early September 2019,” Rep. Michael McCaul, the lead republican in the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said. 

“When they realized what happened, Chinese Communist Party officials and scientists at the WIV began frantically covering up the leak, including taking their virus database offline in the middle of the night and requesting more than $1 million for additional security,” he continued. “But their cover-up was too late – the virus was already spreading throughout the megacity of Wuhan.” 

The investigation also revealed a previously unknown request in July of 2019 for a $1.5 million overhaul of a hazardous waste treatment system for the facility, even though it was two years old, according to the New York Post. 

The request included maintenance on “environmental air disinfection system” and “hazardous waste treatment system,” which would indicate concerns about how these systems meant to prevent lab  leaks were functioning, per the report. 

Additionally, satellite intelligence showed that hospitals in the lab’s vicinity received an unusually high influx of patients in September. 

The report says PLA Major General Chen Wei, an expert in biology and chemical weapon defenses, was deployed to take control of the lab in January of 2020, if not the end of 2019, demonstrating that the CCP was “concerned about the activity happening there as news of the virus was spreading.”

“This raises the obvious question of why she…would lie about military researchers working with the WIV,” the report says, suggesting that “her denial and the scrubbing of the website appear to be obvious attempts to obfuscate the PLA’s involvement with the WIV.”

“This was the greatest coverup of all time and has caused the deaths of more than four million people around the world, and people must be held responsible,” McCaul said.
