Former State Department official Thomas DiNanno lambasted the Biden administration for “denying the existence of a problem” shortly after the World Health Organization announced it would reopen its investigation into the the origins of COVID-19. DiNanno appeared on “America’s Newsroom” Thursday, accusing Biden’s White House of avoiding the issue in its entirety.
“Most of the data in the reports we’ve seen was either leaked or forced out via Freedom of Information Act requests,” DiNanno said when asked why China would increase COVID-testing orders. 19 before the first cases. have been made public.

“None of this was provided by Eco Health Alliance or other beneficiaries. Again, this drip, drip, drip data has not been provided to congressional investigators and the administration continues to drag its feet in denying that there is a problem. ”
“Apparently that’s how they can avoid dealing with it,” DiNanno explained.
The WHO said it would reopen the investigation in September to investigate how and when the virus started, as the original investigation left a majority of questions unanswered. China has come under pressure from countries around the world, including the United States, to review the research – but it has largely resisted.

“Maybe this next one would be better, but it starts with the right people and they definitely had the wrong ones last time around,” DiNanno argued.
As a result, China has drawn significant international criticism, as the theory of laboratory leaks and other questions regarding its start-up remain largely unanswered.
“I think now in almost two years it’s fair to say that the Chinese government won’t share any information,” DiNanno suggested.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the investigation will likely consist of around 20 scientists who will focus on collecting additional information on the origins of the virus.

DiNanno also alleged that the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) may have ties to the Chinese government.
“We have seen documents now public that directly link NIH and USAID to the Wuhan lab,” DiNanno said. “When our own government chooses to associate with the Chinese Communist Party, it is a serious problem, and I think a very simple solution: don’t do it. “
