US Gave More Money to Chinese Lab for Bat Research Than Fauci Claimed: Documents
From The Epoch Times:
The United States gave more than $800,000 to the top-level laboratory in China from which some believe the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus emerged, according to newly released documents.
Internal emails from officials with the National Institutes of Health and an office inside the agency, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), show they discussed a question posed by Republican members of Congress in 2020 regarding how much the agencies sent to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
The total amount sent between fiscal years 2014 and 2019 was $826,777, according to the emails.
The funding went to EcoHealth Alliance, which channeled money to the lab for the purpose of “understanding the risk of bat coronavirus emergence.”
The total amount is different from the amount that Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIAID, told members of Congress the Wuhan lab received from the U.S. government.
“We had a modest collaboration with respectable Chinese scientists who are world experts on coronavirus, and we did that through a subgrant from a larger grant to EcoHealth. The subgrant was about $600,000 over a period of five years,” Fauci told members of the House Appropriations Committee during a hearing last month.
