Majority Of Americans Believe COVID-19 Began In Wuhan Lab, Favor Making China Pay For Global Damages

The origins of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to become an online tug-of-war and political bout between people that believe China’s claim that the pandemic did not begin in a lab, and those willing to hold the regime accountable for their continued threat to global well-being.

When polled about the origins of COVID, via the Ronald Reagan Institute’s 2021 National Defense Survey, and asked whether it originated from a Wuhan lab, 72 percent of Americans said it was “likely to very likely.”

The growing sentiment has kept China on the hot seat as the pandemic maintains a stronghold on public health across the globe. Nearly two years since its inception, the virus has killed over five million people worldwide and hit a case total of 263 million, and counting.

Even between conservative, liberal or moderate groups, the poll results showcased a consensus on the Wuhan lab origin. Republicans showed an 86 percent majority agreeing with the lab leak theory — with 61 percent of Democrats buying in with their political opponents. Among independent voters, 67 percent joined the opinion.

The majority of participants were also in favor of a fine, or “reparations,” for China’s connection to the creation of the virus — whose effect has reverted societies to a primitive caste system among the infected, uninfected, vaccinated and non-vaccinated.

“If the theory was proven, 76 percent of Americans think China should pay reparations to other nations as a penalty, including 82 percent of Republicans and 72 percent of both Independents and Democrats,” stated the poll data.

As Americans maintain pressure on China to answer for their wrongdoings, the CCP has stuck to its damage control, publicly calling the lab leak theory “unscientific.”

According to a Reuters report, a leading Chinese official, Wang Wenbin, denounced an FBI intelligence report insisting “natural origin and a lab leak were both plausible hypotheses to explain how SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19 first infected humans.” Wenbin said the U.S. intelligence’s claim was “without credibility.”

  1. There are plenty of brainwashed woketards who still believe China’s “Wet Market” bullshit propaganda even though the China Virus originated a few miles from China’s only major virology lab and the lab’s scientists were the first sick patients –> China Lab Safety? “Made In China” has always meant “high quality, no cutting corners”… right? /s

    Inevitably those credulous woketards who believe China’s Wet Market propaganda also believe the bLM propaganda. Some of those credulous dumbasses are in high positions in government now thanks to the general prevalence in the Brandon Administration / Alzheimer’s Nursing Home of overlooking [qualifications and ability] to score “Woke” propaganda points by hiring unqualified Kamala Harris-type idiots who check Woke boxes like [skin color/gender/sexual fetishes], etc.

    Don’t forget: 13 dead American soldiers and Joe was checking his watch when they were unloaded right in front of him… and lots more Americans still (alive?) in Afghanistan… Worst. “Leader” . Ever.
