Was Donald Trump right all along about covid-19?
Did the world's worst pandemic for 100 years emanate from a laboratory in Wuhan, China?
If so, where does all this leave Dr Anthony Fauci, America's top infectious disease expert, and the face of the nation's response to Covid, who vehemently dismissed the engineered theory but has close and potentially conflicting ties to China's top scientists and the very lab under suspicion?
These are some of the very uncomfortable questions now gathering ferocious momentum following President Biden's decision to order a new 90-day investigation by US intelligence agencies to 'redouble their efforts' in determining how the coronavirus started.
And there's a fourth even bigger question if the answers to the first two are 'yes' and 'yes', which is this: if China knew the virus erupted from one of its labs, either accidentally or nefariously, and then covered it up to the world, how should it be punished?
