Despite Dr. Anthony Fauci’s insistence that his agency, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, never funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan, a podcast featuring Dr. Ralph Baric, who conducted studies manipulation bat coronaviruses with top Wuhan researchers, unearthed by The National Pulse reveals otherwise.
The November 22nd, 2015 episode of the show This Week In Virology – “It’s not SARS 2.0” – features Dr. Baric as a guest to discuss a paper he had recently co-authored: “A SARS-like Cluster of Circulating Bat Coronaviruses Shows Potential for Human Emergence.” Two researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, including “bat woman” Shi Zhengli, are co-authors of the paper which notes it was “supported by grants from the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Disease.”
The collaborative work between Shi and Baric was recently referenced by Senator Rand Paul when he pressed Dr. Fauci on whether or not his National Institutes of Health (NIH) agency had funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Fauci asserted that the claims were “entirely and completely incorrect.”
The paper discussed on the podcast, however, reveals otherwise, as it repeatedly prefaces its findings with acknowledgments that the relevant research was completed before an October 2014 ban on gain-of-function research:
