(WatchDogNews.org) – China has been acting shady since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the US is investigating whether or not the communist country actually created the virus. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo believes there’s a good chance that’s true.
During an April 3 interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Secretary Pompeo said there’s “enormous evidence” COVID-19 came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Later, on Twitter, the secretary discussed China’s terrible track record.
China has a history of infecting the world and they have a history of running substandard laboratories. These are not the first times that we’ve had a world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab.

Although the origins of the virus are unclear, we do know the Chinese government hid the scope of the outbreak from the world. The US government believes it did so to hoard supplies while nobody was paying attention. Had China’s government let countries know about COVID-19 sooner, everyone would’ve had more time to prepare. Instead, the number of deaths across the globe is astronomical and economies are taking a beating. To know someone may have been able to prevent that but didn’t is infuriating.
