COVID Lab Leak Theory Blown Wide Open as Report Exposes ‘Reckless’ U.S.-Funded Wuhan Tests

A damning report has added weight to the theory that COVID-19 originated from a lab leak in Wuhan after a watchdog claimed US-sponsored virus experiments in China were not effectively monitored. An audit by the US Office of Inspector General has called out the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for failing to properly review whether lab tests underway in Wuhan involved pathogens had the potential to spark a pandemic.

The federal audit examined three US taxpayer-funded research grants. They went towards NIH-supported research to understand naturally occurring bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which had funds sent via a sub-award from the NIH grantee called EcoHealth Alliance.

But the report has blasted the NIH, the US’s medical research agency, for failing to ‘effectively monitor or take timely action to address EcoHealth’s compliance with federal laws.

The audit also found that both NIH and EcoHealth also failed to “understand the nature of the research conducted, identify potential problem areas, and take corrective action”.

The lab tests involved enhanced viruses that had been purposely engineered to be more infectious or deadly – referred to in the science world as “gain of function”. (Read more from “COVID Lab Leak Theory Blown Wide Open as Report Exposes ‘Reckless’ U.S.-Funded Wuhan Tests” HERE)
