Sen. Marshall Releases Bombshell COVID-19 Origins Report

(Washington, D.C., April 17, 2023) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D, the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Primary Health and Retirement Security on the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP), released the new bombshell COVID-19 Origins report that has been in the works for over two years. This report is published in conjunction with the Muddy Waters Group, Dr. Bob Kadlec and 117th GOP HELP Committee Staff.

“This report is a crucial development in getting to the bottom of COVID-19’s true origins and exposing the deception of those that sought to conceal how this pandemic started,” Senator Marshall said. “A preponderance of evidence in this report suggests there were two separate unintentional lab leaks dating back to fall of 2019 in Wuhan, China with significant evidence supporting that COVID-19 was a lab-created and altered virus.” 

“We have to understand what happened in order to make sure this never happens again,” Senator Marshall said. “China has had every opportunity to disprove all of the reports surrounding the origins of Covid-19, but they have not and will not.” 

“This report also concludes that the CCP was responding to the coronavirus months before the rest of the world was even aware of its existence, yet China failed to inform the global community of the unfolding disaster,” Senator Marshall said.  

“While today’s new report reaffirms much of my previously stated findings on COVID-19’s origins, we still need more transparency from the U.S. government-specifically the NIH- and China. We must also stop Gain of Function research until we can establish additional guardrails to make sure risky lethal research never leaks again,” Senator Marshall said. 

This 300-page report is the cumulation of findings and research conducted for more than two years. The report has over 1500 citations to corroborate its findings. You may click HERE to read the full report. Additionally, you may click HERE to read an executive summary of the report.


In 2021, Senator Marshall released a multi-step path forward on getting to the bottom of the origins of COVID-19 and holding China accountable for its actions surrounding the earliest days of the outbreak. 

Senator Marshall introduced the Chinese Communist Party Accountability Act to place sanctions on the top two Chinese health officials with early ties to the COVID-19 outbreak who obfuscated actionable information; the Viral Gain of Function Research Moratorium Act to place a moratorium on all federal research grants to universities and other organizations conducting gain-of-function research and risky research on potential pandemic pathogens; and the National BioSecurity Improvement Act to ensure federally-funded research involving potentially dangerous pathogens does not compromise national security.

The Senator introduced a resolution calling for a bipartisan Select Committee to investigate the origins of COVID-19. The Senate passed a bipartisan amendment offered by Senator Marshall and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) calling for a transparent investigation into the COVID-19 outbreak.

Senators Marshall and Gillibrand held the first joint bipartisan Senate briefing on the origins of COVID-19, bringing together healthcare, national security, medical, and academic experts.

In November 2021, Senators Marshall and Gillibrand joined forces with Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to introduce bipartisan legislation to create a 9/11-style commission to investigate COVID-19 origins and identify lessons learned regarding U.S. preparedness, response, and recovery to improve our ability to respond to future outbreaks. 

Senator Marshall was the first U.S. Senator to demand answers from the DOD and HHS on possible COVID-19 infections of U.S. Army troops who participated in the 2019 World Military Games in Wuhan, China, from October 18-28, 2019.

In August 2021, Senator Marshall released a video walkthrough of a 3D timeline of the origins of COVID-19. Senator Marshall has been sounding the Alarm on the timeline of the Covid Origins for over 2 years.
