Biden accuses China of hiding “vital information” about Corona


US President Joe Biden announced on Friday that China is hiding “vital information” related to the origin of the emerging coronavirus.


The US President’s accusations to China also came after US intelligence agencies revealed that they did not believe that the virus had been developed as a biological weapon, although they remained divided over the hypothesis that it had leaked from a laboratory.

According to the summary of an unclassified report, the United States does not believe that Chinese officials had prior knowledge of the virus that has paralyzed the world and killed about 4.5 million people.

“Important information about the origin of this epidemic is present in the People’s Republic of China,” Biden said in a statement.

But from the start, government officials in China have worked to deny access to international investigators and members of the global public health community.”


“To this day, the People’s Republic of China continues to reject calls for transparency and withhold information, even though the losses from this epidemic continue to rise,” he added.

US intelligence agencies have ruled out the hypothesis that the coronavirus was developed as a weapon, and most agencies assess with “low confidence” that it was not genetically modified.
