Washington: The coronavirus originated from a laboratory in or from animals? US President Joe Biden directed intelligence agencies to report in this regard within 90 days.
The investigating agencies are in two tiers on the issue of where the virus originated, which has killed more than 34 lakh people around the world. It is still unclear whether it was from animals sold at the wet market in Wuhan, China, or from a laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Whatever the final report, it is crucial for China and the US. China is of the view that they are not behind the pandemic. But those on the Republican side of the US have concluded that this is a virus that came out of the lab. This will also create a buzz in US politics.
