US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. – Tom Williams / CQ-Roll Call / Sipa U / SIPA

If it has “no certainty”, the United States has “significant evidence” that the new coronavirus has spread since
a laboratory in Wuhan, Chinasaid US Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo on Wednesday.

“We have no certainty, and there is significant evidence that this comes from the laboratory, these statements are both true, “the secretary of state said at a press conference on the remarks by various senior US officials.

Conflicting statements

The administration of Donald trump, who accuses Beijing of having concealed the extent of the disease when it appeared at the end of 2019 in Wuhan, has increasingly focused its suspicions on a possible laboratory accident at the city’s Virology Institute which would have allowed a naturally occurring coronavirus to infect humans.

But it has multiplied contradictory statements over the past week. President Trump said on Thursday that there was evidence to suggest that the epidemic came from the laboratory, but at the same time, Mike Pompeo said he did not know if it was.

“Huge Evidence”

The secretary of state finally said on Sunday “Huge evidence that this is where it started”, but without presenting them publicly.

For its part, American intelligence reported that it could not establish at this stage whether the pandemic was “the result of a laboratory accident in Wuhan”. And the epidemiologist who advises the White House, Dr. Anthony Fauci, clearly believed that the virus had “evolved in nature” and then crossed “the barriers of species”.
