U.S. and Chinese researchers funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) created viruses in the Wuhan Lab that were 10,000 times more viral load than those that occurred in nature. I’m glad we were able to get a bang for our buck and Biden’s way of thanking Fauci was to declare Fauci has a job as long as he is president. By the way, am I the only person who has noticed they no longer announce COVID deaths daily under Biden?
The United States nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance notified the NIAID in two reports that between June 2017 and May 2018 it had created SARS-like viruses that had much higher viral loads than strains that occurred naturally. Yet, they continued to fund the Wuhan lab rather than refer it to a federal committee founded in 2017 to investigate money spent for gain-of-function research.
Rutgers University professor Richard Ebright tweeted:
“Three EcoHealth/[Wuhan Institute of Virology] lab-generated viruses exhibited >10x to >10,000x higher viral load than the starting bat virus in humanized mice. One EcoHealth/WIV lab-generated virus exhibited higher pathogenicity than the starting bat virus in infection studies with humanized mice.”
“The results demonstrate–unequivocally–a gain in function.”
(1) Three EcoHealth/WIV lab-generated viruses exhibited >10x to >10,000x higher viral load than the starting bat virus in humanized mice.
(2) One EcoHealth/WIV lab-generated virus exhibited higher pathogenicity than the starting bat virus in infection studies with humanized mice.

EcoHealth Alliance first notified the NIAID that it had created 3 new coronaviruses in a report, between June 2017 and May 2018.
The group reported:
“Using the reverse genetic methods we previously developed, infectious clones with the WIV1 backbone and the spike protein of SHC014, WIV16 and Rs4231, respectively, were constructed and recombinant viruses were successfully rescued. 2 and 4 days post infection, the viral load in lung tissues of mice challenged with rWIV1-SHC014S, rWIV1-WIV16S and rWIV1-Rs4231S … were significantly higher than that in rWIV1-infected mice.”
“These results demonstrate varying pathogenicity of SARSr-CoVs with different spike proteins in humanized mice.”
EcoHealth Alliance included a chart visualizing the increased viral load of their lab-created viruses. The chart is presented in a Log scale, meaning each tick of the chart represents a 100-fold increase in viral load in mice with humanized cells, Ebright explained to the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“Each tick in the chart on the right represents an increment of 100x,” Ebright told the DCNF. “The day 4 data show greater-than-10,000x higher viral loads for the lab-generated viruses.”
The viral load for humanized mice infected with the natural virus caught up with the lab-created strains by the end of the experiment, the chart shows, but Ebright said that viral loads in the early stages of an infection are important figures to consider when assessing a pathogen’s transmissibility.
