The federal government has doubts about the US claim that the corona virus originated in a Chinese laboratory.

According to information from Spiegel, the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) had a meeting last week with all partners of the secret service network “Five Eyes”. This intelligence service includes not only the United States, but also the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

According to “Five Eyes” members none of the secret services wanted to confirm the evidence for the US government widespread “laboratory thesis”

Pompeo said last weekend that he saw “overwhelming evidence” for the laboratory thesis. Earlier, US President Trump had sparked speculation about it.

In an internal note for Secretary of Defense Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the US claims are classified as a calculated diversion. The US president is trying to use the laboratory theory to “distract from his own mistakes and direct the anger of the Americans towards China,” the confidential dossier said.

Scientists believe it is much more likely that Sars-CoV-2 has been transmitted to humans from bats via another animal and through the wildlife trade. China therefore banned the trade in wild animals with a new law in March.

Four to six weeks delay in fighting Covid-19

However, according to the German Intelligence, China has pushed the World Health Organization (WHO) to delay a global warning after the outbreak of the virus at the highest level. On January 21, China’s head of state Xi Jinping during a phone call with WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus asked to withhold information about a person-to-person transmission and to delay a pandemic warning.

The German Intelligence estimates that China’s information policy has lost four to six weeks to fight the virus worldwide.
