It is publlicly known by now that the U.S gave $600,000 to the Wuhan lab rumoured to be the origin site for the now lethal COVID-19 virus that has brought the world to its knees. But now as more information continues to come to light, reports out this week have revealed even more controversial than originally thought.
According to a new report, the previous State Department ordered officials not to investigate the origins of COVID-19 because they felt that it would open a can of worms they wouldn’t be able to stop. A can of worms that has since exposed that the United States (despite the pandemic) donated $600,000 to “gain of function” research inside the controversial Wuhan lab now at the centre of the pandemic as a whole.
The orders came from the top during the initial investigation into the COVID-19 though it is not understood how far the orders actually went. The news comes against the backdrop of backlash at the doorstep of one Dr. Fauci, who, held a cozy and fairly non-confrontational relationship with China throughout much of the pandemic. E-mails published earlier this week show that Fauci hardly if ever actually questioned China ‘s CDC over the virus itself or its origins.
That disclosure led to some questions for Dr. Fauci who has since downplayed the controversy all together even earning the support of the White House still.
