US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged Sunday that there is “enormous evidence” that the coronavirus originated and leaked from the Wuhan Institute of virology, with more intelligence document leaks further pointing to a Chinese cover up.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Pompeo stressed that the US investigation is turning up significant findings that indicate the virus did not originate at a wet market, but stemmed from scientists working with virus samples in the lab.
“There’s enormous evidence that that’s where this began. We’ve said from the beginning that this was a virus that originated in Wuhan, China. We took a lot of grief for that from the outset. But I think the whole world can see now.” Pompeo stated.
