Almost two-thirds of Americans believe that China should be forced to pay reparations for the COVID-19 pandemic if the virus is found to have leaked accidentally from a Chinese lab, according to a new poll.
“Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the Chinese regime should pay reparations for the destruction caused by the human coronavirus pandemic, according to a TIPP Poll conducted for the Center for Security Policy,” wrote Michael Waller, a Senior Analyst for the Center.
According to the poll, that number “rises from 63 percent to 78 percent if investigations reveal that the Chinese government released the SARS-CoV-19 human coronavirus on purpose.”
“The Center’s poll results generally coincide with the numbers of a new Politico-Harvard poll, which shows that 52 percent of the public believes that the virus that causes COVID-19 came from a ‘laboratory leak in China,’” the Center added. “The Center for Security Policy poll found that 49 percent believe that the virus ‘was developed in a lab.’”
