Virus, always the damned one coronavirus. Where does it come from? How did the pandemic arise? Issue on the agenda in the study of CartaBianca, the program broadcast on Rai 3 and conducted by Bianca Berlinguer. Issue on the agenda a bit at all latitudes since also Joe Biden with his administration he has raised the suspicion, the possibility, that Covid is the result of the Chinese laboratory in Wuhan. Thesis supported some time ago by Donald Trump, but because it was the tycoon who supported it, she was rejected. And, indeed, Trump was branded as a half-mad, a conspiracy theorist, a warmonger, a racist.
Fortunately, however, there is Federico Rampini, one deployed without too much delay and hesitation “to the left”. But also someone who does not have slices of salami on his eyes: in short, he says things as they are. He says things as he thinks them. It’s at CartaBianca, when asked about the origins of the pandemic, states without too many words: “The suspicion that the virus was born in the laboratory was advanced by Trump a year and a half ago and at that moment everyone, starting with the media, distanced themselves. Today the same track is resumed without there being any new elements “, recognizes Rampini.
In short, according to the journalist, nothing has changed from a year ago to today. Except that it was Biden and not Trump who raised the suspicion against China. Honest, simple, correct. But this kind of honesty, on the left, is a very rare commodity. And again, Rampini added: “Biden wants to give a signal to China that his presidency will not be tender. There is therefore an element of geopolitical positioning”. In short, the relaunched thesis of the White House has a very specific political objective.
