Former US President Donald Trump has declared his opinion that the “China virus” originated in the Wuhan laboratory to be correct.

He also called for China to be punished for the deaths and damage caused by the “laboratory leak”.

“Now everyone, even the so-called ‘enemy’, is starting to say that President Trump was right that the China virus came from the Wuhan Lab,” said Trump.

“The correspondence between Dr. (Anthony) Fauci and China speaks too loudly to be ignored. China should pay America and the world $ 10 trillion for the death and destruction they caused! ”Added Trump.

Dr. Fauci’s view of the Wuhan laboratory’s leak theory has changed after Trump’s comment.

Fauci faced backlash after leaking 10,000 emails from the director of the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases in 2020.

A senior executive from EcoHealth, which funded research at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology into the Origin of COVID-19, thanked Dr. Fauci for publicly declaring that scientific evidence supports a “natural origin of the coronavirus and not a laboratory leak.”

Fauci denied all connections and said in an interview with CNN: “This is nonsense. I don’t even understand how you can get that out of this email. I have always said, and will say today, that I still believe that the most likely origin is from an animal species for a human, but I am open to the fact that there could be another reason, if there is another origin for it, there could be a laboratory leak from China. “He has called on China and the WHO to go through a transparent process that states that it is necessary to” get to the bottom of the origins of the pandemic “.

The controversial claim was rejected last year by experts who thought it was “extremely unlikely”. No evidence of this has emerged.

In recent days, however, the theory has reignited debate, amid criticism of an inconclusive international investigation into the origins of the virus and new reports of Covid-related illness in the region weeks before it was officially identified.
