The U.S. says that it will stop funding the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Why now!?
A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services said this on Tuesday and said that this was “necessary to mitigate any potential public health risk.”
This comes after a ten-month investigation by the HHS found the lab was “not compliant with federal regulations and is not presently responsible.”
We recently covered documents from Congress showing that Dr. Anthony Fauci and his colleagues purposely altered a scientific paper to make a lab leak seem implausible. This was done to politicize the lab leak theory, which was successful. It became a Democratic talking point used to call people who asked questions about a lab leak racists and conspiracy theorists. In truth, this was done to divert attention to the fact that Dr. Fauci had continued authorizing gain-of-function research long after it was banned by the Obama administration.
This does not prove that Covid came from this lab, but it does prove that Covid was politicized and information manipulated.
