Fauci: Are you saying we’re implicated over $  120K a year for bat surveillance?

Are you really saying that we are implicated because we gave a multibillion-dollar institution $ 120,000 a year for bat surveillance?” preguntó, de acuerdo a the Financial Times.

Rand Paul over a $ 600,000 grant that went to a group called EcoHealth Alliance and ended up at the Chinese lab. The lab was reportedly tasked with studying the risk that bat coronaviruses.

Francis Collins, director of the National Institute of Health, said at a May 25 hearing that the taxpayer-funded grant was not approved to conduct gain-of-function research, which is research that involves modifying a virus to make it more infectious among humans.

China has promoted unproven theories that the virus may have originated elsewhere or even been brought into the country from overseas with imports of frozen seafood tainted with the virus, a notion roundly rejected by international scientists and agencies.

Gao warned him about sickened individuals in Wuhan. El informe dijo “Redfield immediately offered to send a team of specialists to investigatebecause he had suspicions about the Wuhan lab.
