Fauci DID fund Wuhan virus experiments, but officials insist virus involved ‘could not have been’ cause of Covid-19 pandemic

After months of President Joe Biden’s top health adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, insisting his institute “never” funded gain-of-function virus research in China, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) grudgingly admitted otherwise.

In a letter sent to Republican lawmakers on Wednesday, the NIH’s principal deputy director, Lawrence Tabak, admitted that a nonprofit called EcoHealth Alliance did conduct experiments on coronaviruses in China with NIH funding, but denied this had anything to do with the virus that causes Covid-19.

“The limited experiment described in the final progress report provided by EcoHealth Alliance was testing if spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model,” Tabak wrote. The mice infected with the SHC014 WIV1 bat coronavirus “became sicker than those infected with the WIV1 bat coronavirus,” he added.
