Joe Biden Administration FINALLY Admits It

MidWestly [7/21/2021]

And now even the Biden administration admits it.

According to TheDailyWire:

Liberal comedian Jon Stewart recently dismantled the longtime claim from Democrats and top U.S. health officials that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, emerged naturally from some sort of animal in Wuhan, China.

The former host of “The Daily Show” went on a five-minute rant in an appearance on Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show.” “Science has, in many ways, helped ease the suffering of this pandemic … which was more than likely caused by science,” he said to laughter and applause.

But Colbert interrupted, saying he didn’t back the lab leak theory and asked Stewart, “Do you mean perhaps there’s a chance that this was created in a lab? If there’s evidence, I’d love to hear it.”

That’s when Stewart let him have it.

“A chance? Oh my God!” Stewart yelled. “There’s a novel respiratory coronavirus overtaking Wuhan, China. What do we do? Oh, you know who we could ask? The Wuhan novel respiratory coronavirus lab. The disease is the same name as the lab! That’s just a little too weird, don’t you think?” Stewart said.

But President Joe Biden, top Democrats, and even Dr. Anthony Fauci have long contended that the virus emerged naturally at a wet market in Wuhan from a bat, pangolin, or some other animal.

A year ago, Fauci said: “If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what’s out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated. Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species.”

For months, liberals mocked anyone who even asked whether that version of COVID-19’s emergence holds water.

Yet things have changed dramatically over the last few weeks. Republicans on Capitol Hill recently demanded answers from top administration officials about the origin of SARS-CoV-2, and suddenly, Team Biden is coming around.

“Senior Biden administration officials overseeing an intelligence review into the origins of the coronavirus now believe the theory that the virus accidentally escaped from a lab in Wuhan is at least as credible as the possibility that it emerged naturally in the wild — a dramatic shift from a year ago, when Democrats publicly downplayed the so-called lab leak theory,” CNN reported on Sunday.

“Intelligence agencies that were skeptical of the lab leak theory a year ago, like the CIA, also now view it as a credible line of inquiry,” a source told CNN. “There has been a shift in their point of view.”

That dovetails with a new international move toward the lab theory. On Thursday, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the World Health Organization (WHO) director-general, said it had been “premature” to dismiss the possibility that a lab leak had spawned the pandemic. He also urged China to provide “direct information on what the situation of these labs was before and at the start of the pandemic.”
