- President Joe Biden has approved a bill requiring the declassification and release of sensitive documents related to the origins of Covid-19.

- The White House has not yet announced when the documents will be made public.
(MandyNews.com) – On Monday, March 20th, President Joe Biden approved a bill mandating the declassification and release of sensitive documents related to the origins of COVID-19, according to a White House statement.
This move comes in an effort to promote transparency and advance the ongoing investigation into the early days of the pandemic.
The bill, which was first proposed in January and was just signed into law by President Biden, tells the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to declassify and release relevant documents.
This will give important information about where the virus that has spread around the world came from.
In a statement, Biden emphasized the importance of transparency: “My administration will declassify and share as much information about the origin of COVID-19 as possible, consistent with protecting against disclosure of information that would harm national security.”
The information slated for release includes:
- Data on the origin of the Sars-Cov-2 virus
- Possible links between the Wuhan Institute of Virology, China, and the emergence of the disease
- Studies involving any type of coronavirus in Wuhan prior to the appearance of COVID-19
- Details on researchers who fell ill in 2019
It’s important to remember that these pieces of information, which were gathered by US intelligence, are not conclusive and do not prove for sure where the virus came from.Rather, they present what the United States has collected or discovered on the subject to date.
Since the initial reports of COVID-19 cases in the Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019, the US government has been at the forefront of a highly politicized debate over the origins of the pandemic.
Last month, the debate started up again when the Wall Street Journal reported that the US Department of Energy said it was likely that a Chinese lab leak caused the pandemic.China has consistently denied that the virus originated in a lab.
The White House has yet to announce a timeline for when the declassified documents will be made available to the public.
The release of this information is expected to further fuel discussions and investigations into the still-unclear origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
