Emails to and from Dr. Anthony Fauci have been obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and they are quite telling. Amongst them is correspondence with Dr. Peter Daszak the president of the EcoHealth Alliance which conducted “gain-of-function” research about bat coronaviruses in China at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). In the emails, Daszak thanks Fauci for publicly dismissing the lab-leak theory.
RedState reports “while Fauci has been attempting to distance himself from having any knowledge of EcoHealth Alliance projects, including those of Dr. Peter Daszak…newly released emails detail the praise Daszak heaped upon Fauci for his dismissing of the lab-leak theory.”
Just six weeks after COVID-19’s original outbreak, Daszak wrote an email to Fauci on April 18th, 2020 stating:
“As the Pl of the ROl grant publicly targeted by Fox News reporters at the Presidential press briefing last night, I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
From my perspective, your comments are brave, and coming from your trusted voice, will help dispel the myths being spun around the virus’ origins. Once this pandemic’s over I look forward to thanking you in person and let you know how important your comments are to us all.”
As RedState points out, “the disturbing nature of this email is in the fact that Daszak was one of the lead investigators from the Who into the origins of SARS-CoV-2 and again, his having funded undisputed gain-of-function research at the WIV.” Daszak has “been seen throughout this investigation, even to the point of spreading misinformation to deflect from EcoHealth Alliance’s potential liability associated with the lab-release theory.”
Dr. Fauci had a simple, nonchalant and friendly response: “Peter: Many thanks for your kind note. Best Regards, Tony.” The casual, first-name basis demeanor is troubling. “The two clearly are familiar with each other.” RedState reports:
As this story continues to progress, it is clear that more is going on here than was previously disclosed. For Fauci and Daszak to be exchanging emails regarding the origins of SARS-CoV-2, just months after the initial outbreak goes to show the lack of serious credible look taken into the potential of this lab leak. As previously reported, it took Chinese researchers 14 years to determine with certainty, the source of the SARS-CoV virus from 2003. The same determination about SARS-CoV-2 was made by Chinese Officials and then later by the WHO (in which Daszak participated as a lead) in just a few short weeks.
Now that it is no longer heresy to question the source of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it is starting to look more and more like a cover-up from the beginning.
Former CDC Director Robert Redfield Believes COVID Escaped from Wuhan Lab
The former director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention under the Trump Administration believes COVID-19 escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.
Robert Redfield told CNN in a documentary interview that it was his “opinion” that the virus “escaped” from the laboratory.
“I’m of the point of view that I still think the most likely etiology of this pathology in Wuhan was from a laboratory — escaped,” he said. “Other people don’t believe that. That’s fine. Science will eventually figure it out.”
Redfield continued, “It’s not unusual for respiratory pathogens that are being worked on in a laboratory to infect the laboratory worker. … That’s not implying any intentionality. It’s my opinion, right? But I am a virologist. I have spent my life in virology.”
Despite a lack of clear evidence, former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said in a CNN documentary clip released Friday that he believes the novel coronavirus began transmitting in fall 2019 and that the virus may have originated in a lab in China. https://t.co/r4CpbrNsBl pic.twitter.com/GZl1BbM5ZO

Redfield questioned the theory of how the virus could jump from a bat to a human, saying, “I do not believe this somehow came from a bat to a human and at that moment in time, that the virus came to the human, became one of the most infectious viruses that we know in humanity for human-to-human transmission.”
According to the former director, viruses that transmit from animals to humans take longer to become effective at human-to-human transmission.
“I just don’t think this makes biological sense,” he said.
The New York Post reports:
SARS-CoV-2 was first detected in Wuhan in December 2019 — with many scientists believing it emerged at a wet market just under nine miles from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
But Redfield said he believes the bug was circulating as early as September or October of that year.
A probe by the World Health Organization concluded recently that it was “extremely unlikely” that the virus stemmed from a lab accident — and that it likely originated in animals before it spread to humans.
Cancel Culture Hits Virus-Naming, COVID Variants Given Greek Alphabet Names to Avoid ‘Stigma’
The World Health Organization (WHO) has unveiled new names for the novel coronavirus variants. The new names were dreamed up in order to replace the ones which are linked to where the variants were discovered. And why shouldn’t variants be named for where they are discovered? prejudice, obviously.
Liberals went crazy, accusing former President Trump of vicious racism and bigotry when referring to COVID-19 as the Wuhan Virus. As variants of the coronavirus strain are popping up around the world, the WHO is changing its naming tactics.
Despite diseases having been historically and frequently “named after the locations they were thought to have developed, such as the Ebola virus…such associations can be damaging for those places and are often inaccurate, as is the case with the ‘Spanish flu’ of 1918, whose origins are unknown” reports The Guardian.
However, in the new day and age, Trump is being blamed for a rise in attacks on Asian-Americans for referring to COVID-19 as the “China virus” and the Indian government has “ordered social media platforms to take down content that referred to the ‘Indian variant.”
The WHO has named four variants of concern, known to the public as the UK/Kent (B.1.1.7), South Africa (B.1.351), Brazil (P.1) and India (B.1.617.2) variants. They will now be given the letters Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta respectively, to reflect their order of detection, with any new variants following the pattern down the Greek alphabet.
The decision to go for this naming system came after months of deliberations with experts considering a range of other possibilities such as Greek Gods, according to bacteriologist Mark Pallen who was involved in the talks.
The organization said the labels do not replace existing scientific names involving numbers, Roman letters and full stops, which convey important scientific information and will continue to be used in research.
The WHO said: “While they have their advantages, these scientific names can be difficult to say and recall and are prone to misreporting … As a result, people often resort to calling variants by the places where they are detected, which is stigmatizing and discriminatory.
“To avoid this and to simplify public communications, [the] WHO encourages national authorities, media outlets and others to adopt these new labels.”
