The legislation orders government agencies to declassify intel on the origins of COVID-19. Biden put out the following statement on the bill…
Today, I am pleased to sign into law S. 619, the “COVID-19 Origin Act of 2023.” I share the Congress’s goal of releasing as much information as possible about the origin of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19). In 2021, I directed the Intelligence Community to use every tool at its disposal to investigate the origin of COVID-19, and that work is ongoing. We need to get to the bottom of COVID-19’s origins to help ensure we can better prevent future pandemics. My Administration will continue to review all classified information relating to COVID–19’s origins, including potential links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In implementing this legislation, my Administration will declassify and share as much of that information as possible, consistent with my constitutional authority to protect against the disclosure of information that would harm national security.President Biden

China has openly opposed this bill, and actually sent a letter to Senator Josh Hawley’s office warning him about passing the bill. See a tweet with that letter below…

Why is China so interested in covering this up?
