WaPo's Josh Rogin: 'Fauci was wrong' about denying NIH funded Wuhan 'gain of function' coronavirus research
By David Rutz

Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin, who stood out in the media over the past year for his reporting on the possibility the coronavirus pandemic may have leaked from a Chinese lab, said Tuesday that Dr. Anthony Fauci was wrong to deny the National Institutes of Health ever funded "gain of function" research in Wuhan.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. and Fauci had a fierce exchange on the issue again Tuesday, as the White House medical adviser angrily said Paul didn't know what he was talking about. But Rogin said Fauci was playing word games.

"Hey guys, [Rand Paul] was right and Fauci was wrong," he tweeted. "The NIH was funding gain of function research in Wuhan but NIH pretended it didn't meet their "gain of function" definition to avoid their own oversight mechanism. SorryNotSorry if that doesn't fit your favorite narrative."


As the lab-leak theory has gained credibility after being widely dismissed in the press last year, there's more attention being paid to monies given to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, known for its bat coronavirus research, and so-called "gain of function" methods, which involves manipulating viruses to make them more infectious for research.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has repeatedly denied any NIH money went to such research in Wuhan, but his organization has given millions of dollars in grant money to the EcoHealth Alliance, a research nonprofit that funneled at least $600,000 to Wuhan coronavirus research.

Paul cited during his questioning of Fauci that Wuhan researcher, "bat lady" Dr. Shi Zhengli, wrote in 2017 that she took two bat coronavirus genes and "combined them with a SARS-related backbone to create new viruses that are not found in nature."
