This afternoon.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the public face of the US government’s response to the rona, has released his emails and correspondence at the request of The Washington Post.

The package contains communications from March and April 2020.

Included is an email (top) from Dr Fauci saying masks are ineffective as the virus “is small enough to pass through the material”.

Another (middle) from scientist Kristian Anderson tells Dr Fauci that SARS-CoV-2 has “unusual features” that “potentially look engineered”. Dr Fauci has defended the natural-origin theory since the beginning of the pandemic.


Also in the email cache.

Virologist Adam Gaertner (above) claims to know the process of ‘how the virus was created’ and includes ingredients, such as ‘HIV’, along with a recipe.

But could a bat prepare all that?

In a cave?

Something the experts might ponder in the days ahead.

The pair clashed over whether funding from the National Institutes of Health was used for “gain-of-function” research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The institute, located just miles from the market where the first COVID-19 outbreak was detected, previously received funding from Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Questions remain about the origins of the coronavirus and the ‘lab leak hypothesis’ – that the virus resulted from experiments in the Wuhan lab that ‘accidentally spilled over’.
