Four prominent scientists who played key roles in shaping the natural origin virus narrative received more than $50 million from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s NIAID in 2020 and 2021.
The NIAID funding represented a substantial increase when compared to what these scientists had received before their promotion of Fauci’s natural origin narrative.
Some of the funding increases came through an entirely new program. Two of these coveted grants went to scientists who were co-authors of the influential natural origin paper “Proximal Origin.” Both men were on Fauci’s Feb. 1 secret teleconference and privately said a lab leak was likely.
The third grant went to EcoHealth President Peter Daszak—just two months after President Donald Trump ordered Fauci to cancel Daszak’s funding after Daszak’s entanglements with the Wuhan Institute of Virology came to light.
