A Brief History
On February 26, 2023, the Wall Street Journal said that the US Department of Energy reported that the origin of the world-wide pandemic of COVID-19 in all probability did indeed come from a leak at the Wuhan, China biological lab that was the epicenter of the outbreak in late 2019.
The DOE joins the FBI in making this dramatic assertion, after years of suppression of any hint of allegations that this Chinese biolab that just happened to be at the source of the deadly virus was indeed responsible.
It is abundantly apparent that the Chinese government lied to the world about the origins, nature, and spread of this new disease that has so far killed over 1.1 million Americans and over 6.8 million worldwide.
Should China be assessed for the costs of the pandemic?
Question for students (and subscribers): What actions should the US and the world take against China for causing this pandemic and subsequently lying about it? Why did social media platforms squelch any mention of Chinese culpability? Please let us know in the comments section below this article.
