WASHINGTON (AP) – The House has voted unanimously to declassify U.S. intelligence information about the origins of COVID-19.

It was final approval of the bill, sending it to President Joe Biden’s desk to be signed into law.

Debate was brief and to the point: Americans have questions about how the deadly virus started and what can be done to prevent future outbreaks.

The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic on March 11, 2020.
