The Republican-led Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic will hold its first hearing on the origins of the coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China, next week.
According to a press release previewing the event, the hearing, “Investigating the Origins of COVID-19,” will focus on “gathering facts” about the origins of the virus. It will take place Wednesday, March 8, 2023, at 9 a.m. Eastern.
The timing of the hearing follows President Biden’s Department of Energy identifying a lab leak as a likely source of the virus.
“The American people deserve real answers after years of suffering through the coronavirus pandemic and related government policies,” Select Subcommittee Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) said in a statement.
