US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo revealed Wednesday that China has denied US scientists permission to enter the Wuhan Institute of Virology in order to investigate the possibility that the coronavirus originated there.
“The Chinese government hasn’t permitted American scientists to go into China, to go into not only the Wuhan lab but wherever it needs to go to learn about this virus, to learn about its origins,” Pompeo told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“Look, we know it began in Wuhan, but we need to figure this out. There’s an ongoing pandemic. We still don’t have the transparency and openness we need in China.” Pompeo urged.
