Well, this is downright horrifying.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology, which suspected of leaking the COVID-19 virus, received a $3.7 million grant from the U.S.
Seriously? Why are our taxpayer dollars going to a place like this?
The Chinese laboratory at the center of scrutiny over a potential coronavirus leak has been using U.S. government money to carry out research on bats from the caves which scientists believe are the original source of the deadly outbreak.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology undertook coronavirus experiments on mammals captured more than 1,000 miles away in Yunnan which were funded by a $3.7 million grant from the US government.
Sequencing of the COVID-19 genome has traced it back to bats found in Yunnan caves but it was first thought to have transferred to humans at an animal market in Wuhan.
The revelation that the Wuhan Institute was experimenting on bats from the area already known to be the source of COVID-19 – and doing so with American money – has sparked further fears that the lab, and not the market, is the original outbreak source. [Daily Mail]
This is pretty frightening that our paychecks could have paid for manufacturing the very virus that has most of the U.S. out of a job right now.
The American people deserve to know more about how our taxpayer dollars are being spent.
