Fauci Worked Behind the Scenes to Cast Doubt on Wuhan Lab Leak Hypothesis, Emails Show; Fauci Told Chinese Official They Would ‘get through this together,’ Email Reveals, and other C-Virus Updates

Fauci worked behind the scenes to cast doubt on Wuhan lab leak hypothesis, emails show:
Dr. Anthony Fauci quietly worked behind the scenes to help cast doubt on the Wuhan lab leak possibility in favor of the natural origins hypothesis during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, newly released emails show.
Fauci, the head of the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, appeared to provide guidance to scientists who pushed back against the lab leak hypothesis, and he shared articles with reporters and other health officials that critiqued the possibility that COVID-19 may have escaped from a Chinese government lab. The communications by President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser, who has led NIAID since 1984, were part of more than 3,200 pages of emails obtained by BuzzFeed through the Freedom of Information Act.
Bill Gertz, a national security reporter for the Washington Times, messaged then-Vice President Mike Pence’s communications director, Katie Miller, on April 19, 2020, saying, “Dr. Fauci on Friday said he would share a scientific paper with the press on the origin of the coronavirus. Can you please help me get a copy of that paper?” Fauci himself responded to Gertz the next day, sharing three sources that argued in favor of a natural origin for COVID-19.
The first article shared by Fauci, which he appeared to have given some sort of input on, was a piece published in Nature on March 17, 2020, by Kristian Andersen, a microbiologist at Scripps Research, Andrew Rambaut, a professor of molecular evolution at the University of Edinburgh, W. Ian Lipkin, a professor of epidemiology at Columbia University, Edward Holmes, a virologist at the University of Sydney, and Robert Garry, a virologist at Tulane University. The piece argued in favor of COVID-19’s origin being a “zoonotic event” and would be widely cited to dismiss the lab leak hypothesis in the early months of the pandemic. The article contended that “our analyses clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus” and that “it is improbable that SARS-CoV-2 emerged through laboratory manipulation of a related SARS-CoV-like coronavirus.” --->READ MORE HERE
Fauci told Chinese official they would ‘get through this together,’ email reveals:
Dr. Anthony Fauci corresponded with a Chinese health official early in the pandemic, acknowledging the “crazy people in this world” and vowing to “get through this together,” a new report revealed Tuesday.
The nation’s top expert on infectious diseases received an email March 28, 2020, from George Gao, director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in which Gao apologized for saying the US and other countries were making a “big mistake” by not encouraging people to wear masks from the get-go, according to correspondence obtained by the Washington Post.
“How could I say such a word ‘big mistake’ about others? That was journalist’s wording. Hope you understand,” Gao wrote Fauci. “Lets work together to get the virus out of the earth.”
The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases responded, “I understand completely. No problem. We will get through this together.” --->READ MORE HERE
