(INTELLIHUB) — Assistant to the President for trade Peter Navarro told Fox Business on Thursday that China will have to be held accountable for how the COVID19 outbreak started and said the White House will be seeking answers.
Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo made clear during the broadcast that Chinese ambassador Cui Tiankai did not deny that the coronavirus could have started in Wuhan’s P4 lab when he appeared on a Sunday show and said that could be the very reason that a Center for Disease Control (CDC) team may not have been allowed into China to asses and help.
“If they started this in a weapons lab, that is evidence that they are developing or are trying to develop weapons of mass destruction — biological weapons,” Bartiromo told Navarro.
“I think that the question of how this started ultimately has to be answered [but] I don’t think now is necessarily is the time to do that because we have to prevent the crisis first but China will have to be held accountable.”
Navarro went on to explain how 14 years ago, in a book he wrote, he actually predicted that a pandemic would emerge out of China due to the way they run their country.
“I was very surprised that the Chinese ambassador did not answer that question,” he said.
Intellihub’s Shepard Ambellas first reported the P4 lab connection in a Feb 1 report titled HIV insertions found in 2019-nCoV Coronavirus signify possible release of weaponized strain.
