Wuhan lab’s U.S. partner questioned about COVID viral load manipulation

Wuhan Institute of Virology – along with its U.S. partner – manipulated the COVID virus in violation of regulations established by the National Institutes of Health. The manipulation of the virus allowed the it to to generate up to 10,000 times the viral load, according to information provided in a letter from the NIH to House Republicans.

This new information puts to rest claims that the virus was not manipulated to be more lethal and is a vindication to those that questioned Dr. Anthony Fauci’s earlier allegations that the NIH did not fund research.

In the NIH letter the agency stated that EcoHealth ( the US partner) violated provisions in its contract “requiring to report to government funders should one of the viruses in its experiment product ‘a one log increase in growth.’ The company did not report the increase. Instead, it worked with the Wuhan lab, and created extraordinary growth in the virus load from 1,000 fold to 10,000 fold. This increase led to severe disease in mice and deaths in the laboratory, according to reports.

News outlets that shunned those who questioned whether the virus was manipulated should be called out for their failure to do their job. Remember, questioning something does not make you a conspiracy theorist. In fact, asking questions and holding the government, agencies and departments accountable is wise and necessary for truth in any Democracy.

From Roll Call:

“NIH said the nonprofit partner, EcoHealth Alliance, must submit any unpublished data to the agency by Monday to come back into compliance with its NIH grant. Any new documents could shed further light on the controversial nonprofit’s research.

The EcoHealth project ran afoul of NIH terms because it experimented with changing the spike protein of a bat coronavirus identified by researchers as “poised for human emergence” and tested how well it infected human airway cells, according to the letter released by House Oversight and Reform ranking member James R. Comer, R-Ky., late Wednesday. The committee also released a long overdue progress report detailing the group’s work from 2018 to 2019. EcoHealth, a New York-based intermediary between the NIH and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, did not submit it to NIH until August.”

During a press briefing on Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, said that he is working with President Biden on new COVID-19 testing requirements for people entering the United States – but that the COVID-19 threat posed from illegal immigrants flooding across the southern border was “a different issue.”

“Dr. Fauci, as you advise the president about the possibility of new testing requirements for people coming into this country, does that include everybody?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked.

“The answer is yes,” Fauci responded. “Because you know that the new, the new regulation if you want to call it that, is that anybody and everybody who’s coming into the country needs to get a test within 24 hours of getting on the plane to come here.”

“But what about people who don’t take a plane and just these border crossers coming in huge numbers?” Doocy asked.

“That’s a different issue,” Fauci said. “For example, when you talk, we still have Title 42 with regard to protection at the border. So there are protections at the border that you don’t have the capability as you know, of somebody getting on a plane getting checked, looking at a passport, we don’t have that there, but we can get some degree of mitigation.”

Fauci’s comments come as illegal immigration in fiscal year 2021 hit its highest annual total ever recorded. According to data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, there have been over 30,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among illegal immigrants in custody this year.
