Disturbing Gain of Function Research
According to Newsweek article, there is more information about Dr. Fauci and his involvement with research conducted on creating viruses in the laboratory. This included Shi Zheng-Li which we wrote about before on April 9th, 2020,
Dr. Fauci Backed Controversial Wuhan Lab with Millions of U.S. Dollars for Risky Coronavirus Research

“The NIH research consisted of two parts. The first part began in 2014 and involved surveillance of bat coronaviruses, and had a budget of $3.7 million. The program funded Shi Zheng-Li, a virologist at the Wuhan lab, and other researchers to investigate and catalogue bat coronaviruses in the wild. This part of the project was completed in 2019.”…
…A decade ago, during a controversy over gain-of-function research on bird-flu viruses, Dr. Fauci played an important role in promoting the work. He argued that the research was worth the risk it entailed because it enables scientists to make preparations, such as investigating possible anti-viral medications, that could be useful if and when a pandemic occurred.
“The work in question was a type of gain-of-function research that involved taking wild viruses and passing them through live animals until they mutate into a form that could pose a pandemic threat. Scientists used it to take a virus that was poorly transmitted among humans and make it into one that was highly transmissible—a hallmark of a pandemic virus. This work was done by infecting a series of ferrets, allowing the virus to mutate until a ferret that hadn’t been deliberately infected contracted the disease.
The work entailed risks that worried even seasoned researchers. More than 200 scientists called for the work to be halted. The problem, they said, is that it increased the likelihood that a pandemic would occur through a laboratory accident.”– Newsweek, April 28th, 2020
So it begs these questions:-
If scientists on contract with the NIH for the gain-of-function research projects that were promoted by Dr. Fauci, then how much of that research and study has helped scientists during the current pandemic????
Why was the work halted, restarted then halted again?
So where is China’s assistance in this “Clean-up” effort and Shi Zheng-Li today?
The plague that has been ruining the world that came from China needs assistance from those who are “in the know”.
Why does it seem to have ties back into the US National Institutes of Health and why were US Tax Dollars from the deep state funding the China Virus Lab?
