The National Center for Medical Intelligence, a branch of the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency, issued a rare statement Wednesday debunking media claims that it produced a report warning about the novel coronavirus as far back as November.
“The report was the result of analysis of wire and computer intercepts, coupled with satellite images,” ABC News reported, based on four anonymous sources. “It raised alarms because an out-of-control disease would pose a serious threat to U.S. forces in Asia -- forces that depend on the NCMI’s work.
And it paints a picture of an American government that could have ramped up mitigation and containment efforts far earlier to prepare for a crisis poised to come home.”
