Scientists assume that the virus arose from a naturally occurring event, as it usually does with other types of diseases
The intelligence agencies of the USAat the request of the President Joe Biden, will put more efforts into investigating the origin of the Covid-19. Biden said that, so far, the information is not sufficient to determine whether the virus arose from natural causes or a laboratory accident. The expectation is that the American government will have the answers within 90 days. According to the White House, it is possible that there will be resistance from the China – which would make a conclusion about the origin of the disease unfeasible. Joe Biden’s government will also continue to put pressure on WHO to expand the investigation. Scientists assume that the virus arose from a naturally occurring event, as it usually does with other types of viruses that pass from animals to humans. However, because they have not identified which animal may have spread the virus to humans, the theory of something created in the laboratory is not ruled out.
