Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, on Sunday called it “likely” the coronavirus pandemic was triggered by a China virology lab accident, calling it the “worst coverup in human history” — and arguing the United States should “pull our supply chain out of the region.”
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” McCaul blasted the Chinese Communist Party for withholding crucial data on the virus from the start.
“I do think it’s more likely than not it emerged out of the lab,” McCaul said, adding: “Let me say this is the worst coverup in human history.”
“It was just declassified that three of the researchers were actually hospitalized in November of 2019 with flu-like symptoms consistent with COVID. That was suppressed by the Chinese Communist Party,” he said.
