Fauci Claims US Gave $600,000 To Wuhan Lab Research; Documents Show It Was More

- in Fox News, Politics

In a Senate hearing late last month, top doctor Anthony Fauci told lawmakers the U.S. granted $600,000 in funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology over a five-year period, but documents provided by the Department of Health and Human Services Friday show the actual number was a third higher. 

Reports obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by Judicial Watch, found that between 2014 and 2019 $826,277 was provided by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) under the directive of Fauci to the China-based lab. 


Under tough questioning by Republicans on the Hill in late May, the infectious disease specialist said the National Institutes of Health – which encompasses the NIAID — provided $600,000 to the Wuhan lab for the study of coronavirus in bats. 

Spending outlined in the documents shows that funds were provided over a six-year period for “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence” by the NIAID through the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance.
