US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed that there was evidence found that the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
KAMI learned that the statement came after some parts of the US and Europe eases its lockdown amid the COVID-19 crisis.
In a report by ABS-CBN, the US Director of National Intelligence office said that analysts are still examining the origin of coronavirus disease.
Pompeo also said in the same interview that he agreed with the statement of the US Intelligence Committee that the COVID-19 was “not man-made or genetically modified.”
“I’ve seen what the Intelligence Committee has said. I have no reason to believe that they’ve got it wrong,” Pompeo said.
However, as reported by GMA News Online, Pompeo claimed that there was evidence that the coronavirus originated in a laboratory in Wuhan.
“I can tell you that there is a significant amount of evidence that this came from that laboratory in Wuhan,” he said.
"I think the whole world can see now, remember, China has a history of infecting the world and running substandard laboratories,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, US President Donald Trump said that there would be consequences for China if proven that they were responsible for COVID-19.
As of posting time, there are over 3.5 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the globe. Meanwhile, over 1.1 million cases were recorded in the United States.
