Today, most believe that the COVID virus leaked out of the Chinese Communist Party’s level 4 virology lab, Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), in Wuhan, China.

Initially, several mainstream media and scientists tried to cover that story up. But bigger concerns have since been raised on what type of experiments were taking place on the coronavirus at WIV?

Recently, Judicial Watch, released over 1,600 pages of records it obtained through Freedom of Information from the US National Institute of Health (NIH).

So what secrets were hidden in those pages?

Back in 2016, NIH and NIAID officials were expressing concerns about the possibility that gain-of-function experiments were taking place on the coronavirus at WIV, which was being funded in part by the US and Canadian governments.

The Blaze reports in part:

Watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained 1,651 pages of records from the NIH through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit. Emails show that NIH officials warned that EcoHealth Alliance could be conducting “gain-of-function” research at the Wuhan lab, and there was reportedly an FBI “inquiry” into the concerns.

In an email dated May 22, 2020, Ashley Sanders – a senior investigations officer in the NIH Division of Program Integrity – emailed David A. Miller – an FBI agent from the Newark Field Office. While most of the email is redacted, the subject line includes: “Grant Questions – FBI Inquiry,” and a reference to NIH grant award R01AI110964 – “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.” […]

NIAID program officer Erik Stemmy replied to an email regarding EcoHealth’s failure to file a progress report on its bat coronavirus research, “They have proposed work for the next year of the award that may be subject to the gain-of-function funding pause.”
