BOMBSHELL: Millions in US Taxpayer Dollars Given to Wuhan Lab to Study Coronavirus in Bats
Before the coronavirus pandemic shook the world, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) handed over $3.7 million to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study coronavirus in bats.
The Wuhan Institute houses over 1,500 strains of deadly viruses. The U.S. taxpayer subsidized bizarre Chinese experimentation regarding coronavirus in bats to the tune of millions. It was the official story from China that the virus came from bats being sold at a nearby wet market, but this propaganda line from the communist regime does not hold up under scrutiny.
“It seems clear that the seafood market is not the only origin of the virus,” said Cao Bin, a doctor at the Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital, who noted that 13 of the first 41 patients who contracted the virus had no interaction with the market.
Professor Richard Ebright, a biosecurity expert who works at Rutgers University’s Waksman Institute of Microbiology in New Jersey, says that the idea that the virus could have escaped from the research facility is more than plausible.
“Virus collection, culture, isolation, or animal infection would pose a substantial risk of infection of a lab worker, and from the lab worker then the public,” Ebright said. His conclusion is that the available evidence creates “a basis to rule out [that coronavirus is] a lab construct, but no basis to rule out a lab accident.”
The Wuhan Institute ultimately published their US-funded research in November 2017 under the header: “Discovery of a rich gene pool of bat SARS-related coronaviruses provides new insights into the origin of SARS coronavirus.”
Some of the experimentation going on at the Wuhan Institute borders on mad science. One particularly heinous study was published in April 2018 under the title: “Fatal swine acute diarrhea syndrome caused by an HKU2-related coronavirus of bat origin.”
“Following a 2016 bat-related coronavirus outbreak on Chinese pig farms, bats were captured in a cave and samples were taken. Experimenters grew the virus in a lab and injected it into three-day-old piglets. Intestinal samples from sick piglets were ground up and fed to other piglets as well,” the description of the study reads.
“I’m disgusted to learn that for years the US government has been funding dangerous and cruel animal experiments at the Wuhan Institute, which may have contributed to the global spread of coronavirus, and research at other labs in China that have virtually no oversight from US authorities,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said after the news was revealed in the Daily Mail.
Even fake news rags like the Washington Post are now admitting that the coronavirus likely came out of a laboratory, following weeks of denouncing the notion as a baseless conspiracy theory.
“The Chinese government, meanwhile, has put a total lock down on information related to the virus origins. Beijing has yet to provide U.S. experts with samples of the novel coronavirus collected from the earliest cases,” columnist Josh Rogin wrote in his op/ed.
In addition, Dr. Anthony Fauci – the favorite coronavirus doom prophet of panic-stricken Americans – may have also approved taxpayer-funded coronavirus research in China. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) funded coronavirus research within bats as well in an alliance with the Wuhan Institute. Fauci has lorded over NIAID since 1984.
The research funded by NIAID was summarized as follows: “A newly identified coronavirus that killed nearly 25,000 piglets in 2016-17 in China emerged from horseshoe bats near the origin of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV), which emerged in 2002 in the same bat species. The new virus, called swine acute diarrhea syndrome coronavirus (SADS-CoV), doesn’t appear to infect people, unlike SARS-CoV.”
The conclusions for the research were found by a “collaboration among scientists from EcoHealth Alliance, Duke-NUS Medical School, Wuhan Institute of Virology and other organizations, and was funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health.”
Because of globalism, the U.S. taxpayer is likely subsidizing their own destruction. It is entirely plausible that the federal swamp bankrolled the coronavirus pandemic.
