Greenville, South Carolina (WSPA) – US Senator Lindsey Graham will visit Greenville’s laboratory, Premier Medical Laboratory Services, at 1:00 pm on Monday.
Premier medical test service Was the first South Carolina laboratory to conduct research on the virus, including how the virus is mutated, and to be validated as an independent COVID-19 testing agency.
The senator’s office said he told reporters that he referred to speculation that the coronavirus originated from a leak from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
In 2020, Senator Gram took action on this issue by introducing sanctions in China and pressured the country to cooperate with past investigations.
Former FDA Secretary Dr. Scott Gottlieb also recently questioned the origin of the virus.
“There’s a lot of other information that points in the direction this may have come out of the lab, and we need to have a broader view of the potential risk that this is a lab leak,” he said.
However, the White House said there was not enough evidence to determine whether COVID-19 came from an infected animal or from a laboratory accident.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIAID, repeated this in May.
“The historical basis for a pandemic that naturally evolves from animal storage is very strong,” he said. “100%, no one knows, nor me.”
Graham also said in a tweet on Friday that Congress needs to investigate whether the National Institutes of Health has curbed attempts to find answers.
