Dr. Anthony Fauci was absolutely convinced that the National Institutes of Health never funded dangerous research on bat virus in the Chinese laboratory, believed to be the cause of the COVID-19 pandemic, when questioned two weeks ago by Republican Senator Rand Paul.
“Senator Paul, with all due respect, you are totally and completely wrong that the NIH has never and now not funded” gain in function. “Research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, ???? Said Fauci in the fiery hearing of the Senate May 11th.
That same afternoon, Fauci admitted, “a very minor collaboration under a grant subcontract that we had worked with some Chinese scholars”. During an appearance on Poynter.orgs ” Festival of Fact Checking “.
It’s like being a little pregnant. The NIH either funded the so-called gain-of-function research to investigate bat coronavirus in China ntsjuice, or it didn’t. It turned out that it was. And it did so by exploiting a loophole in an Obama administration ban on Frankenstein research introduced in 2014.
Fauci’s defensive response at this month’s Poynter event was an answer to a mild enough question about the coronavirus: “You are still confident it had developed naturally? “
Shaken by the morning confrontation with Senator Paul, Fauci admitted for the first time that he wasn’t at all sure that the virus had developed naturally , and maybe, just maybe, it could be from a lab leak. But he was still trying to have the last word on Paul.
“I think the really unfortunate aspect of what Senator Paul did is that he brought research together in a collaborative manner with Chinese scientists. That is “You almost have to say that if we didn’t do this, we would almost do it.” Be irresponsible because SARS-CoV-1 [the coronavirus responsible for the 2003 SARS outbreak in Asia] clearly originated in China and we have been fortunate enough to escape a major pandemic so we really have a lot more about it the viruses present there had to learn whether or not people were infected with viruses. In a very little sub-grant collaboration, we had a collaboration with some Chinese scientists. He brought that together. “That is why we were involved in creating the virus, which is the most ridiculous majestic leap I have ever heard of.
Paul, a doctor, did not allow Fauci, as usual, to deviate from a straightforward answer to the crucial question Resolve: Have American Taxpayers Funded Dangerous Research To “Splash On Juice”? Bat Viruses at Wuhan Institute?
The NIH donated $ 3.7 million to a New York-based nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance supported by the UK born Dr. Peter Daszak. With the approval of the NIH, the NIH donated nearly $ 600,000 to fund the profit. of-function research on bat coronavirus at the Wuhan Institute and co-author of research with the scientist, who carried out the laboratory research, China’s so-called bat woman Shi Zhengli.
Daszak was one of the vocal opponents of the “laboratory leak” theory and has claimed that the virus is true apparently emerged spontaneously from the wild.
Obviously, he has come into conflict over the question of the origins of the pandemic. Nevertheless, he was selected by the World Health Organization as the only representative from America to take part in the fake investigation of the Wuhan laboratory supervised by Beijing in February.
No wonder Daszak and his WHO team found a leak from the Wuhan laboratory comprehensively ruling out, suspecting that the virus may have been imported into China via frozen foods such as Australian beef.
Daszak was also instrumental in shaping the early media narrative on the origins of the pandemic. In February 2020, he wrote an influential letter from 26 scientists published in The Lancet, in which he dismissed the laboratory leak hypothesis as a “conspiracy theory”. and insist that the virus appeared naturally. Emails posted under Freedom of Information Acts indicated he was the author of the letter.
Has the partially NIH-funded function gains research led to a laboratory leak in Wuhan that caused the COVID-19 outbreak ?
We don’t know for sure yet, but this laboratory leak theory is increasingly being viewed as the most likely cause of the pandemic by scientists and intelligence agencies around the world. Until recently, however, the theory was dismissed as “debunked” by the scientific establishment and most of the media. and a “conspiracy theory”.
He devastated the laboratory leak theory of the origins of COVID-19 using all powers of his office as the leading expert on infectious diseases in the country, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases for 37 years, chief physician to the Presidents and founding experts on then-President Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force.
“If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what’s out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very much geared towards that this could not be manipulated artificially or deliberately. ” ???? Fauci said last May.
Anything about incremental evolution over time strongly suggests that [this virus] evolved in nature and then species jumped.
Fauci has his opinion on almost everything others changed, from masks to herd immunity to Trump’s ban on flights from China in January 2020.
But in this regard, possibly the most momentous of all Facui’s mistakes, he had to be kicked and yelled by Paul to finally acknowledge the obvious.
