As the administration of Donald Trump shudders itself to pieces like an old jalopy, among the wreckage has been a series of prematurely declassified intelligence reports -- in some cases being released decades early.

As we reported last week, the ABC received a leak of the Trump administration's Indo-Pacific strategy, setting out in particular a tougher stance on China.

Now, according to a report in the UK Telegraph, the administration is planning to release intelligence that alleges China's People's Liberation Army was "running research projects that involved 'cultivating dangerous coronaviruses' in a series of animal species" in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
