Expert Anthony Fauci has been surrounded by all kinds of controversies since the beginning of this terrible pandemic that managed to change our lives for good.
The novel coronavirus killed what we used to call normality, and we’re now living under the sign of fear and uncertainty.
Now, the Daily Wire online publication (which is itself surrounded by tons of controversies and accused of being far-right in its opinions) is noting that the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden faces calls to answer for a shocking report.
This has been published by the Intercept, and it’s about the so-called “gain of function” research that the National Institute of Health funded at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The WIV is thought to be a possible origin point for Covid 19, as we have already pointed out in previous articles.
Funding Wuhan research
Back in May of 2021, Dr. Fauci ( during his testimony to a Senate committee investigating whether the U.S. funded “gain-of-function” research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology) claimed the following:
the NIH “has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
It’s been also revealed that The Intercept found, through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, evidence suggesting the following:
the NIH issued a “bat coronavirus grant” to a group called the EcoHealth Alliance for “$3.1 million, including $599,000 that the Wuhan Institute of Virology used in part to identify and alter bat coronaviruses likely to infect humans.”
The same online publication mentioned above notes that Dr. Richard Ebright, who is a molecular biologist at Rutgers University and an expert who spoke to The Intercept, elaborated on the findings on Twitter.
“The materials show that the 2014 and 2019 NIH grants to EcoHealth with subcontracts to WIV funded gain-of-function research as defined in federal policies in effect in 2014-2017 and potential pandemic pathogen enhancement as defined in federal policies in effect in 2017-present,” Ebert noted.
He continued and pointed out the following:
“The materials confirm the grants supported the construction — in Wuhan — of novel chimeric SARS-related coronaviruses that combined a spike gene from one coronavirus with genetic information from another coronavirus, and confirmed the resulting viruses could infect human cells.”
The novel coronavirus and viable current vaccines have been making headlines for a really long time now,
The other day, we reported that The Guardian writes that, unfortunately, there is a third man has died in Japan after receiving an injection from one of three batches of Moderna vaccines. Check out all the available details in our previous article.
