Feds open investigation into US health funding grants amid scandal over $800,000 sent to Wuhan Covid ‘leak’ lab | The Sun

A FEDERAL watchdog is investigating the National Institutes of Health after it was revealed the organization gave over $800,000 in funding to the Chinese lab where the coronavirus is theorized to have been originated.

The watchdog will “conduct an extensive audit reviewing how NIH monitored selected grants,” according to Department of Health and Human Services inspector general spokesperson Tesia Williams.

Williams said the HHS-OIG has conducted an initial investigation into the NIH that deemed the investigation necessary. 

“We share stakeholders’ concerns regarding compliance and oversight of NIH grant funds,” Williams said according to the New York Post

“We have been monitoring this issue for some time and consider it a high-priority matter that can pose a threat to the integrity of the NIH grant program.”

“Based on our preliminary research and analysis, HHS-OIG has decided to conduct an extensive audit reviewing how NIH monitored selected grants and how the grantees and subgrantees used and managed federal funds between years 2014 through 2021.”

The HHS-OIG will investigate how the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance received $3.75 million in grant funds from the NIH to conduct a study called “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.”

Over $826,000 of those funds were given to the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a subgrant between 2014 and 2019.

It was recently uncovered by the group Judicial Watch that the lab was set on receiving about $1.5 million from EcoHealth in federal funds from 2014 to 2025.

The nation’s leading infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci, previously undercounted just how much the US was sending to the Wuhan lab.

He said during a House Appropriations subcommittee testimony last month the amount given by EcoHealth to the lab “was about $600,000 over a period of five years, so it was a modest amount.”

    America and China are working together to cover up the truth that 5G is causing all of this, as it came in with the installation of 5G all over the world and the places where it was the most congested are the places with the highest outbreaks. 5G is a military tool that will be used by every government against its people. Same thing happened when electricity was first introduced to the planet – the Spanish Flu; same thing happened when satellites were put into orbit – Hong Kong flu.
