Secret Grants Show Fauci-Funded Org. Deeply Involved w/ Gain-of-Function COVID Research

'This is a road map to the high-risk research that could have led to the current pandemic...'

A smoking-gun report from the Intercept debunked the congressional testimony of coronavirus czar Anthony Fauci, widely spread in the mainstream media, that the National Institutes of Health played no role in funding Chinese research that likely caused the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is a road map to the high-risk research that could have led to the current pandemic,” said Gary Ruskin, executive director of transparency watchdog U.S. Right To Know, which has been investigating pandemic’s origins.

The Intercept said it had obtained through public-records requests 900 pages of documents exposing to the role that EcoHealth Alliance played in funding gain-of-function research that involved mutating bat coronaviruses into more deadly and contagious human strains.

Among the documents were two previously unpublished grant proposals, including one led by EcoHealth’s Peter Daszak in which the NIH gave $3.1 million to study bat and human “samples” for evidence of novel coronaviruses. $599,000 went to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The grants cautioned about the transmission risks in working with the viruses “in caves with high bat density overhead and the potential for fecal dust to be inhaled.”

The researchers also allegedly kept careful records of those who had been bitten.

Yet, despite recognizing the immense level of risk involved, the bombshells revealed that researchers did everything short of testing their lab-engineered viruses on human subjects.

“[V]iruses they constructed were tested for their ability to infect mice that were engineered to display human type receptors on their cell,” said Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University, according to Breitbart.

Some—such as Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., have called for criminal investigations into Fauci for his congressional perjury and for his involvement in engineering the very virus that he has profited off of, while costing an estimated 650,000 lives in the US alone, wrecking the economy and destroying Americans’ trust in its experts and institutions.

“The documents make it clear that assertions by the NIH Director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID Director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement at WIV are untruthful,” Ebright wrote.
