Biden Administration Shut Down Trump-Era Investigation into Wuhan Lab Theory

Wuhan

Calling the novel coronavirus the Wuhan virus because it originated in Wuhan, China was absolutely racist and asinine, cried Democrats when it was uttered by Trump. But alas, he was correct. Moreover, Democrats thwarted Trump’s ability to even look into the origins of the virus.

CNN reports, “President Joe Biden’s team shut down a closely-held State Department effort launched late in the Trump administration to prove the coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab over concerns about the quality of its work, according to three sources familiar with the decision.”

Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly began the inquiry in the fall of 2020, “seeking to establish whether the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) had been using a lab in Wuhan to research COVID-19 and similar diseases.

A State Department spokesperson said the Biden administration’s decision to terminate the inquiry came from the State Department’s arms control and verification bureau after Biden officials were briefed on the team’s draft findings.

CNN reports “questions were raised about the legitimacy of the findings and the project was deemed to be an ineffective use of resources, explained a source familiar with the decision.”  Sources “involved in the Trump-era inquiry” however, reject “criticisms over the quality of their work and told CNN their objective had been to examine scientific research and information from the US intelligence community which backed the lab leak theory and shone more light on how it could have emerged in the lab.”

A State Department spokesman did confirm that the Trump-era inquiry had stopped, but insisted, “Even though this discrete project has concluded, the State Department continues to work with the interagency to look into the COVID origins issue

    The families of those who died deserve to know where covid-19 came from.
    If it was caused naturally, which is highly suspect, then so be it. But, if china,fauci and peter Dasaki along with the Wuhan laboratory gain of function studies are to blame, they should be held to account.
    Anyone involved should be tried for war crimes against humanity.
    If bidens flaccid treatment of china so far is any indication of how he’ll deal with China, if we ever manage to get at the truth, the families may never see justice of any kind.

Biden Admin Announces First COVID Shots For Kids Under 5 Likely By June 21

On Thursday, the Biden administration announced that children under 5 will be able to get their first COVID-19 vaccination doses as soon as June 21, if regulators authorize the shots for this age group as expected.

According to the Associated Press, White House COVID-19 coordinator Ashish Jha “said the Food and Drug Administration’s outside panel of advisers will meet on June 14-15 to evaluate the Pfizer and Moderna shots for younger kids. Shipments to doctors’ offices and pediatric care facilities would begin soon after FDA authorization, with the first shots possible the following week.”

Jha added that states can begin placing orders for the pediatric vaccines on Friday and the administration will initially have 10 million doses available.

“Our expectation is that within weeks every parent who wants their child to get vaccinated will be able to get an appointment,” Jha said. “At the end of the day we all want to move fast, but we’ve got to get it right.”

The news comes the week after Pfizer announced that three doses of their vaccine offers strong protection against COVID-19 in children under 5.  However, according to former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a third dose is unnecessary because the vaccines do not prevent infection.

“I think the decision matrix has changed around the vaccine for [ages] 6 months to 4 years old and so far as we know that the vaccine isn’t as protective at preventing infection,” Gottlieb said. “Previously, we had data showing that the childhood vaccine for 6 months to 4 years wasn’t as protective against infection as the adult vaccine.”

“That’s the reason why they pushed it out and asked for that third dose. But now, if the goal of the vaccine is to get baseline immunity in the kids to prevent really bad outcomes, and you’re really not using the vaccine as a tool to prevent infection in the first place, two doses could do that,” he added.

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”
