Chinese have Finally Admitted COVID May have Come from a Lab—Shame on the Liberals Who Labelled it ‘Wacky’

May 30, 2023


It is only three years since the world shut down.

And we still don’t know for sure where Covid came from or what can be done to stop it from happening again.

But a startling comment today should interest everyone.

One of China’s top scientists finally said what many have long suspected.

For more than three years the Chinese Communist Party has fiercely denied the virus came from its lab in Wuhan.

It has always preferred the claim that it came from a wet market that just happened to be near the laboratory where work on Covid-like viruses was going on.

Now, in an interview, Prof George Gao, from China’s Centre for Disease Control, finally said that the lab theory cannot be ruled out.

That might sound like a small admission. But it isn’t.
