Dr. Fauci backed controversial Wuhan lab with millions of U.S. dollars for risky coronavirus research

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

“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.”


Biomedical research ultimately helps protect public health, Fauci argued. The Wuhan lab that received U.S. taxpayer money is suspected of playing a role in starting the Covid-19 pandemic.
