Scientist Who Worked at Wuhan Lab Says COVID Was Man-Made Virus; House Republicans Gear Up to Investigate NIH About COVID-19 Origins, and other C-Virus related stories

Scientist who worked at Wuhan lab says COVID was man-made virus:
A scientist who worked at a controversial research lab in China has claimed that COVID was a man-made virus that leaked from the facility, according to a report.
Andrew Huff, who worked for a New York-based nonprofit that studied viruses, said COVID leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China two-plus years ago and blamed authorities for the “biggest US intelligence failure since 9/11,” Britain’s the Sun reported Saturday.
The lab has been at the center of fierce debates about the origins of COVID, with both Chinese government officials and lab personnel denying that the virus leaked from the facility.
Huff, an epidemiologist, said in his new book, “The Truth About Wuhan,” that the pandemic was the result of the US government’s funding of coronaviruses in China.
He said China’s gain-of-function experiments were carried out with lax security, which led to a leak at the Wuhan lab. --->READ MORE HERE

House Republicans gear up to investigate NIH about COVID-19 origins:
House Republicans sent a warning to the National Institutes of Health to save all existing records and documents related to the origins of COVID-19, part of the preparation for a congressional probe when the GOP runs the chamber in January.
Top Republicans on the Energy and Commerce committee listed out a series of unanswered correspondence the panel sent to the NIH during this Congress, voicing concerns about the agency’s transparency with lawmakers and the American people.
“According to its mission statement, a goal of the National Institutes of Health is ‘to exemplify … the highest level of scientific integrity and public accountability. However, given the overall lack of adequate responsiveness to our oversight letters, the NIH is falling short of the goal set forth in its mission statement,” members wrote in a letter to NIH Acting Director Lawrence Tabak.
The notice comes as Republicans prepare for a series of investigations of the Biden administration.
The letter was signed by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington who is the top Republican on Energy and Commerce. Committee members Rep. Brett Guthrie of Kentucky and Rep. Morgan Griffith of Virginia also signed the letter. --->READ MORE HERE
