Speaking to CNN, Sullivan was asked about the Department of Energy’s report in the Wall Street Journal, which concluded, “The COVID-19 outbreak was most likely caused by a laboratory leak.”
Sullivan stated that there are different opinions in the intelligence community on this issue, but there is not enough information to be sure.
Noting that President Joe Biden has repeatedly directed intelligence units to get to the root of this problem, Sullivan said, “If we get more information, we will share it with Congress and the American people. However, there is no ‘conclusive answer’ to this question from the intelligence community at the moment.” said.
The Wall Street Journal wrote that it thinks the COVID-19 virus most likely accidentally leaked from a lab in China, according to a classified intelligence report the Department of Energy has recently provided to the White House and key members of Congress.
