Trump Says He's Seen Evidence That COVID-19 Originated In Wuhan's Lab

On April 30th, US President Donald Trump said that he had seen evidence that COVID-19 did, in fact, originate in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“Have you seen anything at this point that gives you a high degree of confidence that the [Wuhan lab] was the origin?”

To which Trump responded:

“Yes, I have… Yeah I have, and I think the WHO should be ashamed of themselves because they were like the public relations agency for China.”

“They shouldn’t be making excuses when people make horrible mistakes, especially mistakes that are causing hundreds of thousands of people around the world to die,” the president continued. “I think the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves.”

Later on, when the reporter asked for more information, Trump responded that he is not allowed to say anything more.

Earlier, Trump was asked whether Chinese President Xi Jinping should be held responsible for the coronavirus outbreak.

“I don’t want to say that, but certainly it could have been stopped,” the president said. “I wish they stopped it. The whole world wishes they stopped it.”

And it should be reminded that ZeroHedge faced repercussions for saying specifically what Trump admitted, but back in March.

In the US’ fight against COVID-19, Michigan government, Democrat Gretchen Whitmer issued an extension to the lockdown until May 28th, and faced strong opposition from protesters.

The cases in New Jersey, also keep rising, with the death toll also rising.

California’s COVID-19 deaths spiked again yesterday to 95, while the number of positive cases climbed 5.2%, as both deaths and cases in the state spiked above the medium-term average for the second day in a row.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the US Department of Defense had ordered 100,000 body bags, in preparation for a “worst case scenario.”

The US has been stockpiling these body bags since the beginning of the administration’s response to the outbreak in the US. Trump said he expected the virus could cost as many as 70,000 lives, though the US appears on track to surpass that number by a wide margin.

Some states, at the same time are showing signs of improving, and lockdowns are about to be lifted in some, such as Georgia.

Governor Brian Kemp, however, said that the elderly and medically fragile need to remain at home until at least June 12th.

“What we’ve done has worked,” Kemp said in the interview. “It’s given us time to build our hospital infrastructure capacity, get ventilators and ramp up testing. That’s what really drove our decision.”

Another one of Kemp’s orders, also extended through June, bars visitors and nonessential workers from entering nursing homes, restricts group activities and meals and requires any worker who tests positive for the virus to be quarantined.

“I felt like the negative effects of not having our economy starting to open up was beginning to have the same weight as the virus itself, especially if you weren’t in the medically fragile category or someone in a long-term care facility,” he said. “For most of the rest of Georgia, the effect has been minimal.”

In the EU, Sweden called on the European Union to investigate the causes behind the COVID-19 pandemic, which prompted a sharp response from China.
