The U.S. intelligence community said that it was divided over the exact origin of Covid-19 in China, a revelation that comes three months after President Joe Biden requested a more in-depth review.

One intelligence agency said it assessed with moderate confidence that the virus infected humans after an incident related to a lab, according to the report, which was released Friday afternoon. Four agencies said they reached low confidence assessments that the virus had a natural origin.

The report did not name the agencies.

After examining all available intelligence reporting and other information, though, the IC remains divided on the most likely origin of Covid-19. All agencies assess that two hypotheses are plausible: natural exposure to an infected animal and a laboratory-associated incident,” the nations 18 intelligence agencies wrote in the report.

The report, compiled by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, found that the virus was not developed as a biological weapon. The intelligence community also assessed that Chinese officials did not have foreknowledge of the virus before the initial outbreak that triggered a global pandemic.

The report said the intelligence community wouldnt be able to make a more definitive conclusion unless it receives more information.

Biden, in a statement following the reports release, said the U.S. and its allies would continue to pressure China into revealing more about what happened when Covid first started to spread.

Critical information about the origins of this pandemic exists in the Peoples Republic of China, yet from the beginning, government officials in China have worked to prevent international investigators and members of the global public health community from accessing it,” Biden said.

The world deserves answers, and I will not rest until we get them,” the president added.
