“We haven’t had access to the laboratories to determine whether or not, and I have not reached a conclusion because our intelligence community is not certain yet, whether or not this was a consequence of – from the marketplace, a bat interfacing with animals and the environment that caused this COVID-19 or it was an experiment gone awry in a laboratory.”
He also added that it was important to build to determine transparency and avoid future pandemics in the world.”So we are trying to figure out at the G7 whether we could put together an international basis upon which we could have a bottom line with what the transparency accounted for”, he said.
