Skip to comments.Dr. Fauci Backed Controversial Wuhan Lab with U.S. Dollars for Risky Coronavirus Research
Posted on 09/15/2020 10:37:09 PM PDT by TBP
Dr. Anthony Fauci is an adviser to President Donald Trump and something of an American folk hero for his steady, calm leadership during the pandemic crisis. At least one poll shows that Americans trust Fauci more than Trump on the coronavirus pandemicand few scientists are portrayed on TV by Brad Pitt.
But just last year, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the organization led by Dr. Fauci, funded scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and other institutions for work on gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses.
In 2019, with the backing of NIAID, the National Institutes of Health committed $3.7 million over six years for research that included some gain-of-function work. The program followed another $3.7 million, 5-year project for collecting and studying bat coronaviruses, which ended in 2019, bringing the total to $7.4 million.
Many scientists have criticized gain of function research, which involves manipulating viruses in the lab to explore their potential for infecting humans, because it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release.

Yeah, prolly having revenue problems.
been reported awhile ago
glad its still being kept in the news
yes, yes he did
not chump change either
Shouldnt be funding the ChiComs for anything.
Why are the Left turning on their hero ? Probably because he defended Trump a few days back and that they don’t think they can use him to hurt Trump as they thought before. Fauci as a Trump killer is a dead end. Now if they can squeeze out a sensational story (’Fauci helped create the Corona virus’) then Fauci will have served some purpose.
We’ve known this for quite awhile now. mainstream news just starting to report on it geesh.
aha possibly so...
Such research was banned in the US...
fauci friend of bill and Hillary also friend of bill gates make believe virologist and of coarse George soros, and china friend to all, you figure this out
Looks like somebody “fired a shot across Fauci’s bow”. It could be the first step to an investigation followed by a very public firing.
Fauci is in huge trouble. This so-called public health official has basically been funding biological warfare research overseas. Not a good look.
By the way, Newsweek doesn’t seem to be run by the Left anymore. I don’t know for sure what happened, but the articles they publish are all over the map politically these days.
He did this ILLEGALLY!!! Dr. FRAUD SHOULD BE I PRISON!
FauXi and his infection-using seditionists
working to destroy the USA,
and on the way murdering hundreds of thousands
of innocents, ..... deserve much more than jail.
For SURE....I was just trying to be NICE....so unlike me though.
