Steve Hilton reveals new evidence linking COVID-19 origins to US-funded research in China

Fox News “The Next Revolution” host Steve Hilton unveiled new evidence Sunday linking COVID-19 origins to U.S. funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

Last week, Hilton revealed explosive evidence that linked COVID-19 to Dr. Anthony Fauci and EcoHealth Alliance, INC based in New York.

On Friday, the National Institute of Health (NIH) denied Hilton’s allegations in a statement.

“The statement we received from the NIH is totally deceptive,” Steve Hilton

In the statement, the NIH said that the research supported under the grant, to EcoHealth Alliance, did not involve the enhancement of the pathogenicity or transmissibility of the virus it studied.

But the project they linked in their statement was not the project that was under question.

“It’s a different project, with a different number,” Hilton said. “They’re right to say that this project doesn’t include gain-of-function research, but that’s not the one we asked about. The one we asked about does include gain-of-function research.”

“The statement we received from the NIH is totally deceptive.”

“You can blame China for the lab accident, the leak, but lab accidents happen all over the world, including here in America. That’s exactly why the Obama administration banned gain-of-function research,” Hilton said. “Once the leak happened, and the virus was circulating in Wuhan, you can certainly blame the Chinese regime for their coverup. And for allowing an outbreak to become a global pandemic.”

“The origin of this virus, the reason it exists, the reason it’s so contagious and infectious, the responsibility for that is increasingly clear.”

NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins and Dr. Fauci were asked by the Obama administration to stop funding gain-of-function research but continued to fund it.

“For that, surely they must be accountable.”

“Why isn’t Joe Biden furious about that?” Hilton asked.

“Isn’t this pandemic bad enough without us potentially funding and incubating the next one?”
