Wuhan’s “Gain of Function” Exposed

“Gain of Function” experiments are when a natural pathogen is taken into the lab, made to mutate, and then assessed to see if it has become more deadly or infectious.

This research also allows the virus’s potential effects on humans to be studied and better understood. Gain of Function has been considered controversial due to its inherent biosafety risks.

In 2014, the Obama administration imposed a moratorium on Gain of Function which included halting funding for projects, however, this decision was overturned on December 19, 2017 by the National Institute of Health (NIH) under Dr Anthony Fauci who took the decision for the Institute and did not alert any White House officials.

“Scientists working in this field might say – as indeed I have said – that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks,” Dr Fauci wrote in the American Society for Microbiology well back in October 2012, deciding to overturn the Obama moratorium five years later on his own authority.

Dr Anthony Fauci has denied any wrongdoing. Asked to testify, he told lawmakers that the NIH committed $600,000 to the Chinese lab through a nonprofit, to study whether bat coronaviruses could be transmitted to humans – but denied funding went towards Gain of Function research.

That appears to be technically true, as the NIH grants actually go to a New York-based nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance (where Dr Peter Daszak is President, later a member of the WHO team sent to investigate the origins of the virus in China) – which then subcontracts some of its work to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The National Pulse Reports / June 8, 2021

EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak – who collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology on research funded by Dr Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease – appears to boast about the manipulation of “killer” SARS-like coronaviruses carried out by his “colleagues in China” in a clip unearthed by The National Pulse.

Daszak made the admission at a 2016 forum discussing “emerging infectious diseases and the next pandemic,” which appears to be at odds with Fauci’s repeated denial of funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

While describing how his organization sequences deadly viruses, Daszak describes the process of “insert[ing] spike proteins” into viruses to see if they can “bind to human cells” as being carried out by his “colleagues in China”:

“Then when you get a sequence of a virus, and it looks like a relative of a known nasty pathogen, just like we did with SARS. We found other coronaviruses in bats, a whole host of them, some of them looked very similar to SARS. So we sequenced the spike protein: the protein that attaches to cells. Then we… Well I didn’t do this work, but my colleagues in China did the work. You create pseudo particles, you insert the spike proteins from those viruses, see if they bind to human cells. At each step of this you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic in people.

“You end up with a small number of viruses that really do look like killers,” he adds.

The comments follow growing evidence that Fauci’s NIAID has deep financial and personnel ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology – and that Daszak’s EcoHealth alliance was one of the primary proxies funneling the money to the Chinese Communist Party lab.

Over a dozen research papers carried out under a $3.7 million National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) grant list the Wuhan Lab’s Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases Director Shi Zhengli as a co-author alongside Daszak. Shi has included these Fauci-backed grants on her resume.

The Wuhan lab has also listed the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as one of its “partners,” secretly erasing the mention in March 2021.
