The Wall Street Journal is reporting (from behind a paywall) that the U.S. Department of Education has asked the University of Texas system for documents on gifts from, or contracts with, the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The federal government is investigating the lab as a possible source of the new coronavirus, though there is no evidence that the virus was genetically engineered.


From the WSJ:

"An official at the University of Texas System said it plans to respond to the department in a timely manner and declined to provide information about any potential links to the entities mentioned in the letter."
