COVID-19: China must be held accountable for the leak and cover-up of the Wuhan laboratory, Pompeo says

Former Foreign Secretary Mike Pompeo has stated that the Chinese Communist Party must be held responsible for the deadly coronavirus that was leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology and later hidden.

Pompeo commented in an exclusive interview with Sinclair’s television newscast, The National Desk.

Pompeo, who was also Trump’s first CIA director, said that China should be expelled from the World Health Organization and that the United States should not send athletes to the 2022 Beijing Olympics and that government sanctions might be necessary.
China is under increasing pressure to investigate the origins of COVID-19, even as scientists call for more clarity to examine the roots of the global pandemic.

Sky News Australia anchor Andrew Bolt spoke with Professor Nikolai Petrovsky, director of endocrinology at Flinders Medical Center, on May 26, who said the global scientific community has been “misled by China,” reported the New York Times. Post.

The WHO team that investigated the origins of COVID-19 in China found no evidence that the virus leaked from the Wuhan laboratory.

However, the team was closely monitored by Chinese authorities during its investigation, with one of its members telling the UK news agency that China refused to disclose key data from the initial outbreak, the New York Times Post reported.
