US may be involved in outbreak of Covid pandemic

Washington, Aug 4 (UNI) The development of the COVID-19 pandemic suggests its deliberate nature and the involvement of Washington in its outbreak, Lt. Gen. Igor Kirillov, the head of the radiation, chemical and biological defense of the Russian armed forces, said on Thursday.
"We are considering the possibility that the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is involved in the emergence of the new coronavirus," Kirillov told reporters.
Since 2009, the US agency has funded the Predict program, which studied new types of coronaviruses and captured bats that carry these viruses, the official said.
