Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) recently released a 240-page report with citations outlining the origins of COVID-19, which has raised concerns about China and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The report is based on almost 18 months worth of investigations and evidence that was previously unknown or ignored by the US government. The report suggests that there is growing evidence that a lab accident caused the pandemic.

The report details how in middle of 2019, there were developments leading up to “a serious biosafety incident” that occurred later that year. The head of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) noticed the need for upgrades in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in April 2019, and the WIV pursued costly projects. However, in July 2019, the CCP secretary of the WIV still spoke of “current shortcomings and foundational problems in the construction, operation, and maintenance” of the lab complex, with the director of the WIV calling on staff to “prioritize solving the urgent problems we are currently facing.”
Chinese officials started working on a vaccine as early as November 2019, nearly two months before the virus was even disclosed by Beijing.
Furthermore, the CCP was not equipped for such a pandemic. In October 2019, the Chinese legislature reviewed a draft biosecurity law and noted that “currently the biosecurity situation in our country is grim” and listed “laboratories that leak biological agents” as one of the several threats about the “complex and grave situation currently facing safety work.”
In contrast to the popular theory of the virus originating from the Wuhan wet market, Chinese scientists determined as early as January 2020 that the wet market was likely not the origin of the virus. Furthermore, there was growing evidence of internal communications within the Chinese government and researchers on the urgent need for biosecurity measures at both the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Wuhan Institute of Health.
Despite these findings, there is still uncertainty regarding the truth about COVID-19’s origins. While some unknown pieces of evidence have recently surfaced, Rubio emphasizes that China must be held accountable for its lies. Rubio warns about the dangerous ambitions of the CCP, which pose a significant threat to global health. People need to be aware of the potential dangers posed by China and take appropriate action.
In conclusion, Senator Rubio’s report emphasizes the ongoing and urgent need to hold China accountable for its actions. While the origins of COVID-19 may never be entirely clear, it is crucial to gather all the information and evidence available to uncover the truth and hold the CCP responsible.
