Republican Report: Covid-19 Leaked Out of Shoddily-Maintained Wuhan Lab in 2019 When They Botched a Ventilation-System Repair Job

Let's keep giving them money, so they can kill millions more people.

Damning Republican report into Wuhan lab claims COVID LEAKED out in September 2019 shortly after it tried to improve air safety and waste treatment systems

An addendum to a report being compiled by Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs committee adds further questions to the Wuhan lab leak theory

It says that months before the Covid-19 outbreak a Wuhan Institute facility sent out a request for bids for ventilation and waste management system renovations

The facilities were less than two years old, raising questions, the report says about how effective they were

The report also says traffic at local hospitals surged before the accepted start of the outbreak

It is part of a larger report due in September, in which Republicans on the committee seek prove the coronavirus escaped from a Chinese lab

The report also claims an earlier timeline for when the virus first began to spread, and that various measures were undertaken to cover it up


Coronavirus first leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan in September 2019, shortly after the Chinese research facility tried to improve air safety and waste treatment systems, a damning report by Republicans has claimed.

The report also cited 'ample evidence' that scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology - aided by U.S. experts and Chinese and U.S. government funds - were working to modify coronaviruses to infect humans and such manipulation could be hidden.

Its authors cited a stream of open source information, including satellite imagery showing a surge in visitors to local hospitals, long before cases were reported emerging from a nearby market.

And it reports how scientific papers written by researchers prove the WIV was doing dangerous genetic modification research - so-called 'gain of function' experiments - in unsafe laboratories.

'As we continue to investigate the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe it’s time to completely dismiss the wet market as the source of the outbreak,' said Rep. Mike McCaul, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, as he released the report by the panel's GOP staff.

'Instead, as this report lays out, a preponderance of the evidence proves that all roads lead to the WIV.

'We know gain-of-function research was happening at the WIV and we know it was being done in unsafe conditions.'

Just last week, Fauci insisted that we must keep giving money to fund research at the Wuhan lab.

Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested that it would've been "negligent" for the National Institutes of Health not to fund bat coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and declined to commit not to collaborate with Chinese government scientists in the future, insisting that "we have always been careful."


On Sunday, CNN’s Jake Tapper referenced last week's back-and-forth between Paul and Fauci, noting the NIH has insisted the U.S. government-funded experiments proposed by the EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan lab did not meet the NIH's definition of gain-of-function research and asked if the United States should "collaborate" with such labs whose research critics consider risky.

Fauci defended the NIH's approval process and the funding of bat coronavirus research in Wuhan, saying it had been important to try to understand where SARS-CoV-1 originated, years before the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

Fauci insisted[:] "It was very regulated. It was reviewed. It was given progress reports. It was published in the open literature. So, I think if you -- if you look at the ultimate back rationale, why that was started, it was almost as if you didn't pursue that research, you would be negligent because we were trying to find out how to prevent this from happening again."

You not only didn't prevent it -- you caused it.

On Sunday, Tapper pressed Fauci on whether he is still confident collaboration with China can continue after the Asian country's government has not allowed for transparency.

"Going forward, we are always going to be very, very careful. Go through all kinds of review, including the risk-benefit ratio. So, if your question... is looking forward, are we going to be very careful about the research that we do? Well, we have always been very careful," Fauci said. "And looking forward, we will continue to be very careful in what we do. And we are always willing to reexamine the criteria that are used when you do research, wherever you do them."

"Very very careful" = unleashing a manfuctured Frankenvirus, paid for by US taxpayer dollars, that kills 4.4 million people worldwide and locks down the planet.
