“There is growing evidence that the pandemic started in a Chinese laboratory, and the CCP covered it up,” lawmakers continue. “If so, the CCP is responsible for the deaths of nearly 600,000 Americans and millions more around the world.”
209 Republicans sent a letter to Pelosi asking him to authorize investigations into the Wuhan lab.

The request comes as the Biden administration steps up efforts to determine the origin of COVID-19.
President BidenJoe BidenPaul Ryan: Voters Won’t Be Impressed By The ‘Yeas And Flatterers Flocking To Mar-a-Lago’ The Secret Service Told The White House They Have Unexamined Evidence On The Origins Of The Coronavirus: Milley report says US plans potential evacuation of Afghan translators from region CONTINUED on Wednesday ordered the intelligence community to “redouble their efforts” to find a definitive conclusion on the origin of the virus and gave them 90 days to report. Biden said Thursday that he would publicly publish the findings.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence said Thursday that the intelligence community has “merged around two probable scenarios.”
“Either it emerged naturally from human contact with infected animals, or it was a laboratory accident,” the statement said.
The laboratory theory was rejected but recently received new attention. The Wall Street Journal reported Three researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology fell so ill on Sunday that they sought hospital treatment in November 2019, around the time the virus first spread.
The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report and March dismissing the laboratory theory as “extremely unlikely”.
“It is clear that the WHO has not produced the final say on the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and the responsibility of the CCP,” Republicans wrote to Pelosi. “This task falls to us in Congress. The Republicans in the House have constantly called on you to find out this truth. It is time for you to join this battle. ”
