Biden Signs Bill on COVID Origins Declassification

President Joe Biden signed a bipartisan bill Monday that directs the federal government to declassify as much intelligence as possible about the origins of COVID-19 more than three years after the start of the pandemic.

The legislation, which passed both the House and Senate without dissent, directs the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to declassify intelligence related to China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology. It cites “potential links” between the research that was done there and the outbreak of COVID-19, which the World Health Organization declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020. The law allows for redactions to protect sensitive sources and methods.

U.S. intelligence agencies are divided over whether a lab leak or a spillover from animals is the likely source of the deadly virus. Experts say the true origin of the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 1.1 million in the U.S. and millions more around the globe, may not be known for many years — if ever.

Biden, in a statement, said he was pleased to sign the legislation.

“My Administration will continue to review all classified information relating to COVID–19’s origins, including potential links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” he said. “In implementing this legislation, my Administration will declassify and share as much of that information as possible, consistent with my constitutional authority to protect against the disclosure of information that would harm national security.”



  1. Yes, this will get to the heart of the problem. Now, we can identify what truly caused the flu. It was probably the Chinese government. We will see that from govenrment documents. You know you can trust the government to release the right documents because they have a court order. I am confident we will get to the bottom of this. Plus, all the public figures who are reliable sources of information, like the anchors on the Fox News, they all talk about a lab leak, so it must be correct then. Yup. Viruses do exist. I once heard some crazy person try to describe how viruses don’t exist, like if you Google “FOIs reveal that health/science institutions around the world (213 and counting!) have no record of SARS-COV-2 isolation/purification, anywhere, ever”, the first result there… If they don’t exist, then why do all the experts say they do? Duh. No brainer. I also have seen pictures of something they say is the covid. Where would they have gotten that picture if it didn’t exist?
