Washington. Where did the corona virus that caused huge havoc all over the world originate? For the last 3 years, efforts are on to find the answer to this question. Meanwhile, there is news that the US Department of Energy has expressed a strong possibility in one of its reports that the Kovid-19 epidemic could be the result of a leak in a laboratory. Giving this information in its report, the American newspaper Wall Street General has told that this possibility has been expressed in an intelligence report submitted to the White House and prominent members of the US Parliament.
According to the report, the Energy Department had earlier made some kind of comment regarding the origin of this virus. However, now this new information has been given in the update of the 2021 document by the office of Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines.
FBI has also expressed the possibility of lab leak
This new report highlights how different parts of the intelligence community have come to different conclusions about the origins of the pandemic. The Department of Energy has now agreed with the opinion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in this matter that there is a possibility of the virus spreading due to an accident in the Chinese laboratory.
However, let us also tell here that four other agencies, including the National Intelligence Panel, believe that the corona virus originated naturally, while two agencies could not reach any conclusion in this matter.
According to the report, this conclusion of the Department of Energy is the result of new intelligence. This is important because the agency has considerable scientific expertise and oversees a network of US national laboratories, some of which conduct advanced biological research, the report said.
However, according to the report, according to people who have read this confidential report, the Department of Energy has given its conclusion with ‘low confidence’. At the same time, the FBI also came to the conclusion in one of its reports for the year 2021 that the corona pandemic was the result of a laboratory leak. Although the agency did not provide any concrete evidence behind its conclusion, it says that it still stands by its conclusion.
