WASHINGTON D.C., UNITED STATES (MAY 6, 2020) (STATE DEPARTMENT TV) U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO ENTERING BRIEFING ROOM (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO SAYING: "China could have prevented the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. China could have spared the world descent into global economic malaise. They had a choice, but instead, China covered up the outbreak in Wuhan, its National Health Commission ordered virus samples destroyed on January 3rd. China disappeared brave Chinese citizens who raised alarms deployed its propaganda organs to denounce those who politely called for simple transparency. That brings us to today. One hundred and twenty days on, china is still refusing to share the information we need to keep people safe, such as viral isolates, clinical specimens and details about the many Covid-19 patients in December 2019, not to mention patient zero. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER SAYING: "On China, what do you mean when you say there is enormous amount of evidence that the virus was found in a Wuhan lab. The reason I ask is because Army General Mark Milley said yesterday that we don't know if the virus emerged from the Wuhan lab." (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO SAYING: "So I saw (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) General Milley's statements entirely consistent with what I think everyone in the administration has said, including President Trump. The intelligence community is still figuring out precisely where this virus began. Well, here's here's how this could get solved really quickly, the Chinese Communist Party could do what they're committed to do under their obligations to the World Health Organization, to be transparent, to be open, to do the simple things that nations all around the world do to make sure that pandemics like this don't get out of control and importantly, stay out of control. I mentioned the number of days. This is an ongoing challenge." (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER DESCRIBING WHAT SHE SAID WERE DIFFERENT RESPONSES POMPEO GAVE TO CONSERVATIVE MEDIA OUTLETS AND MORE MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUTLETS, SAYING: "In multiple interviews on May 1st, April 30th and other days, some version of - we don't know if the virus came from inside the lab in Wuhan. And then on Sunday , you said there is enormous evidence the virus came from inside the lab." POMPEO (OFF CAMERA): "Those are both true." REPORTER: "So, did the intelligence change over the weekend?" POMPEO (OFF CAMERA) "Those statements are both true. They're entirely consistent. We ---uh, they're entirely consistent." (VARIOUS CROSS TALK) I've now answered this question, I think is the 13th time. Happy to try to answer it again. I'm not sure what it is about the grammar that you can't get. We don't have certainty. And there is significant evidence that this came from the laboratory. Those statements can both be true. I've made them both. Administration officials have made them. They're all true." POMPEO EXITING THE BRIEFING ROOM So you just spoke with ABC so can agree every week. So just want to correct. Christina said thank you.
