Covid-19: why the US decided to investigate the origin of the pandemic

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, this Wednesday ordered the intelligence services to “redouble” efforts to investigate the origins of the covid-19 pandemic, including the theory that it came from a laboratory in China, something that a WHO’s March report concluded that it was “extremely unlikely.”

The president argued that the United States intelligence community is dividida on whether the pandemic was the result of a laboratory accident or arose from human contact with an infected animal.
