On Tuesday, Senator Marco Rubio appeared on Fox News to discuss his concern over China and the likelihood that they are creating a new pandemic, one that is “far worse” than COVID-19.
He also discussed his bill to sanction Chinese health officials after they refused to cooperate in investigating the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Well, what it says is within 90 days of the bill passing, if China hasn’t allowed for a full, clear, transparent investigation as to how this thing started, we start sanctioning people involved in the sciences over there, people involved in this research, the institutions involved in this research,” Rubio explained. “We’d cut off any and all federal funding for any research that’s gain of function or anything like it in conjunction with any of these agencies over there.’
“Look, we already know enough about what happened in China, I think, to tell you they’ve done something wrong, which is they haven’t allowed the world to fully understand how this thing began, and they’ve covered it up,” he continued. “Now, what it actually leads to — that’s what the world needs to know because the next one could be far worse than this. I mean, coronavirus is terrible. COVID has been terrible. It has killed people. You’ve seen what it’s done to our society and our country, and the world. The next one could be much deadlier, much more disruptive. We — people forget all this research that China does is still going on right now. They’re doing — as we speak, they’re doing it today. It doesn’t stop. This continues.”
“Here’s the bottom line: All we’re asking for is that China open up and allow a full investigation because this is not just about punishing China — what happened in the past, OK?” Rubio added. “This is about preventing it from happening again. For all we know, at this very moment, the next great pandemic is being developed inside of a Chinese laboratory, and they’re using — they’re doing it because they want to develop a vaccine or a cure.”
