The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the agency Collins directs, revealed last week that money it gave to EcoHealth Alliance supported risky experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China that some experts said met the definition of gain-of-function.
Dear Secretary Becerra:
"We write to request a transcribed interview of Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director, U.S. National
Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Excerpts of emails we are making public
today (see enclosed Appendix I) reveal that Dr. Fauci was warned of two things: (1) the potential
that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan Institute Virology (WIV) and (2) the possibility that the
virus was intentionally genetically manipulated. It is imperative we investigate if this
information was conveyed to the rest of the government and whether this information would
have changed the U.S. response to the pandemic."
