(Washington, DC) — The American intelligence community is divided over whether COVID-19 emerged from a lab accident in China. U.S. intelligence agencies reached an inconclusive assessment following their 90-day investigation requested by President Biden. One intel agency assesses with moderate confidence the virus infected humans after a lab-associated incident. Four others assess with low confidence that the virus emerged naturally. Collectively, U.S. intelligence agencies assess that COVID spread after a small-scale human exposure no later than November 2019 and there was a cluster in Wuhan in December of that year.
