When asked by Senator Rand Paul recently about funding for gain of function research at the Wuhan lab in China, Dr. Anthony Fauci had this response. “With all due respect, you are entirely and completely incorrect. The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” …. In 2014, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) approved a 5-year grant to EcoHealth Alliance – a British-origin New York-based NGO research group that focuses on emerging diseases for research into “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.” This project was established to help understand how the SARS-like coronaviruses, jump species into humans.” The express purpose of this work was to facilitate “gain of function” research.
PAUL: “For years, Dr. Ralph Baric, a virologist in the U.S., has been collaborating with Dr. Shi Zhengli from the Wuhan Virology Institute, sharing his discoveries about how to create superviruses. This gain-of-function research has been funded by the NIH. … Dr. Fauci, do you still support funding of the NIH lab in Wuhan?”
FAUCI: “With all due respect, you are entirely and completely incorrect. The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
PAUL: “Do you fund Dr. Baric’s gain-of-function research?”
FAUCI: “Dr. Baric is not doing gain-of-function research, and if it is, it is according to the guidelines and is being conducted in North Carolina. … If you look at the grant and if you look at the progress reports, it is not gain-of-function, despite the fact that people tweet that, write about it.”
This is what we call in the world of intelligence a “lie.”
