Documents published by a scientist group probing Covid-19’s origins reveal that controversial US non-profit EcoHealth Alliance had sought $14 million in 2018 for a project that would expose Chinese bats to altered coronaviruses.
The federal government in 2018 rejected a proposal from EcoHealth Alliance to fund bat coronavirus research that included gain-of-function experiments with "humanized" and "batified" mice, leaked documents reveal.
On Jan. 27, 2020, EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak sent an email to Dr. David Morens, a subordinate of Dr. Anthony Fauci at NIAID, that contained a not-very-subtle warning. Fauci had not yet been appointed to former President Donald Trump's Coronavirus Task Force and was thus largely unknown to the public at large at this point.
American and Chinese researchers funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s federal agency created viruses in a Wuhan lab that exhibited over 10,000 times higher viral load in humanized mice than the natural viruses they were based on, another expert in infectious diseases says, citing newly released documents.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci has assured Americans he has their best interests in mind. However, a new report calls his credibility into serious doubt.
