Fauci contradicted as NIH admits funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, allegations of lying to Congress confirmed

Biologist Richard H. Ebright posted a letter from the National Institute of Health (NIH) Wednesday that revealed an NIH grant funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a view contrary to the Senate testimony given by Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Fauci testified before the Senate in May, telling lawmakers the NIH had never funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

“NIH corrects untruthful assertions by NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan,” Ebright tweeted.

“NIH states that EcoHealth Alliance violated Terms and Conditions of NIH grant AI110964,” he added.

“The NIH received the relevant documents in 2018 and reviewed the documents in 2020 and again in 2021,” Ebright said in another post.

“The NIH–specifically, Collins, Fauci, and Tabak–lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public. Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.”

The new letter reveals the funding of gain-of-function research, but lawmakers will now have to decide how to move forward, if at all, regarding the new information. Dr. Fauci repeatedly denied gain-of-function research was happening in front of Congress, and he must be held accountable for those lies.
