America’s top health expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that he’s not convinced that Coronavirus originated naturally. Millions of people around the globe are infected with this virus. Several people have lost their lives so far. It is hard to accept that COVID-19 developed naturally. The top health expert has called for an open investigation. It is very important to know the virus’s origin. He made these remarks during an event, “United Facts of America”.
Why is Dr. Anthony Fauci Not Convinced?
Dr. Anthony Fauci called COVID-19’s origin a cloudy fact. It is hazy, blurred, and misty. In the event, he was asked a question regarding COVID-19’s origin. He answered that he isn’t confident that the virus developed naturally. The health expert also called for further investigation in this matter. He wants to know what exactly happened in China. Most people who investigated the matter said that it originated from an animal reservoir. From there, the virus spread to humans. But Fauci thinks that the investigators are missing something. And they need to find it out as early as possible.
US Research Institutes Funding Wuhan Lab
Dr. Anthony Fauci said that he is fully in fully supports further investigation. He wants more investigation on COVID-19’s origin. He also hinted that NIH and NIAID have constantly provided funding to Wuhan’s research lab. NIAID stands for National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases. On the other hand, NIH stands for National Institutes of Health. Dr. Fauci serves as NIAID’s director.
Many experts believe that Coronavirus initially broke out in Wuhan’s research lab. However, it is not yet clarified. The investigations are still going on. It is also rumored that a US virologist is constantly working with the Chinese institute on function research. The function research works on making pathogens deadlier and easily transmissible. Moreover, it is rumored that NIH is funding this research.
Lab Leak Theory ‘Extremely Unlikely”
Ex-President Donald Trump has constantly claimed COVID-19 as a Chinese virus. He has also landed in trouble so many times for doing so. Trump and other Republicans have argued that COVID-19 leaked in a Wuhan lab. However, we don’t have any proof or evidence to support this theory. We need more investigation to prove that COVID-19 leaked in a lab. Dr. Anthony Fauci is constantly supporting any such investigation. The WHO has declared the lab leak theory ‘extremely unlikely’. But they are still continuing their investigation. Hopefully, we reach a conclusion very soon.
