Not quite. The NIH gave a grant to EcoHealth Alliance, who sub-awarded part of that grant to WIV to study the risk of bat coronavirus emergence. This has been public for 7 years.The NIH lifted their funding pause on gain-of-function research in December 19, 2017 and had earmarked $600,000 for the Wuhan Institute of Virology over a five-year period to study whether bat coronaviruses could be transmitted to humans.
Today, the National Institutes of Health announced that it is lifting a funding pause dating back to October 2014 on gain-of-function (GOF) experiments involving influenza, SARS, and MERS viruses.www.nih.gov
Again, not quite. What you posted states they lifted their moratorium on it, not that they're funding it specifically. And the indirect funding for WIV wasn't for gain of function research.Indirectly funded WIV, but my point is the NIH funded 'gain of function' research as it states on the NIH website. This type of risky research is done in China because of the more lax laws and regulations.
Again, not quite. What you posted states they lifted their moratorium on it, not that they're funding it specifically.
This paper has been reviewed by the funding agency, the NIH. Continuation of these studies was requested, and this has been approved by the NIH.
And again your lack of reasoning abilities shine through. It's a video of court procession and the validity of it and the statements in it are not linked to my, the poster's or the platform's "fakeness"
