A top Chinese spy has reportedly defected to the US with intelligence about the origins of COVID-19.

No confirmation has yet been provided on the reports surfacing on Chinese media sites.

However, if true, he would be the highest-level defector ever from the People’s Republic of China.

Author Professor Clive Hamilton told Ben Fordham, if true, it’s an “extraordinary coup”.

“It would be a goldmine of information for US intelligence.”

Mr Hamilton said if he ever returned to China “he’d be dead in a day”.
