Emails between the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), led by Fauci, and the Wuhan Laboratory were revealed Tuesday by Australia’s Daily Mail, showing that the lab had asked the United States for help with a possible leak at the lab.
More than 300 pages of emails between the Wuhan lab and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases have been declassified by Judicial Watch, an independent government watchdog group based in Washington, D.C. The emails show that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Wuhan lab have worked closely together financially and technically. The emails show that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has worked closely with the Wuhan lab financially and technically, and has funded the controversial Peter Dasak-led coHealth Alliance on nine occasions to assist them with research in China related to bat coronavirus transmission.
Of particular interest in the email was a request from the Wuhan lab in 2016 for assistance with disinfection and sterilization of lab uniforms and worktops in the United States. The subject of the email, labeled “Request for Assistance,” was signed by Wuhan Lab Director Zhiming Yuan, who asked for U.S. advice on disinfection and sterilization of the P4 lab. The content of the email further confirms the problems at the Wuhan lab, which the U.S. media revealed months ago through internal documents from the U.S. Foreign Service.
In addition, the emails disclosed that in 2018, Ping Chen, a representative of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in China, discovered that scientists at the Wuhan lab had developed a new vaccine for pandemic influenza, “using state-of-the-art nanotechnology, which is injected intranasally to counter multiple influenza viruses and stimulate a strong immune response, although , all information about said vaccine is blocked today.” Chen Ping said, ‘It is unclear why this science-based research advancement is under scrutiny, as the Chinese government typically welcomes announcements of scientific breakthroughs and is generally open to discussions on the flu issue. “
The Daily Mail reported that David Asher, who previously served as the U.S. State Department’s chief investigator for the origins of the pandemic, suggested that heavy rewards could be offered to those who provide information. He said he could “give a $15 million bonus to the first scientist at the Wuhan Institute who defected to the United States or Australia.
