The World Health Organization (WHO) official who led the controversial joint investigation into the origins of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus pandemic admitted in a documentary aired Thursday night Aug. 12 on Danish television that ‘colleagues from the Chinese regime influenced the drafting of the final report.’

Ben Embarek, the head of the WHO investigation into the origin of the virus during an interview by a Danish media outlet, which was published in a documentary on the virus, admitted the pressures exerted by the Chinese regime as a condition for allowing the investigation and further revealed that the regime secretly co-wrote their report and ordered them to downplay the theory of laboratory leakage, the Washington Post reported.

The recent revelations evidence a clear cover-up orchestrated by the Chinese communist regime and reports that the Danish head of the WHO, Ben Embarek, admitted as much after revealing that he believes patient zero was a worker at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Embarek said that “human error” could have led to the virus jumping to humans but admitted that “the Chinese political system does not allow the authorities to acknowledge it.” He also warned that “someone might want to hide something.”

In their report released earlier this year, the WHO-China team stated that it was “highly unlikely” that the virus, officially called SARS-CoV-2, could have accidentally leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology or another facility in the Chinese city identified as the epicenter of the pandemic. They also agreed to recommend against further studies.

As Embarek said during the interview, there was a heated discussion about whether to include the laboratory leak theory, which was not resolved until 48 hours before the mission’s conclusion.

In the end, Ben Embarek’s Chinese counterpart agreed to discuss the lab leak theory in the report “on the condition that no specific study is recommended to promote that hypothesis.”

The Chinese regime has refused from the outset to cooperate with any investigation that considers that the Wuhan lab may be the source of the virus, stating that any attempt to investigate the lab leaks is “against science” and claiming, contrary to U.S. intelligence and the WHO’s own findings, that lab workers were hospitalized with the virus in the fall of 2020.

While the Chinese regime counted on the complicity of the WHO, who only a year after the pandemic began visiting the laboratory to try to find the origin of the virus, as did many leftist governments who did not exert the slightest pressure to hold China responsible for the disaster caused worldwide, many conservatives and Republicans in the U.S. did seek to expose the corruption of the Chinese regime and the concealment that in the early phase of the virus allowed its rapid spread throughout the world.

Such is the case with the GOP-led investigation into the Wuhan lab, which suspects that experts may have genetically modified the virus that caused the pandemic, supporting the lab leak theory.

Republicans on the Foreign Affairs Committee alleged that they detected highly suspicious behavior between the Chinese government and the Wuhan Institute of Virology before the first victims of the CCP virus were officially announced in December 2019, Fox News reported.

“Such a significant renovation so soon after the facility began operating seems unusual,” the House Foreign Affairs Committee Republican staff report said. “Projects for air disinfection, hazardous waste and central air conditioning systems raise questions about how well these systems were functioning in the months leading up to the COVID-19 outbreak.”
