WASHINGTON, D.C., June 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Three leading American health czars have ties to the Chinese laboratory where COVID-19 may have begun.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Peter Daszak, CEO of the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance, and Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have come under increasing scrutiny thanks their support of the Wuhan Institute of Virology (VIR).
In addition, all three have been promoting the expensive Remdesivir drug while discouraging the use of the relatively inexpensive Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has led NIAID since 1984, and he administers a budget of $6.1 billion. Between 2014 and 2019, Fauci distributed $826,277 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology through Daszak and his EcoHealth Alliance.
Fauci's emails, recently released, show the two directors’ shared sympathies for the WIV. In an email dated April 18, 2020, Daszak thanked Fauci for publicly contradicting the theory that COVID-19 was “a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
“As the Pl of the ROl grant publicly targeted by Fox News reporters at the Presidential press briefing last night, I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for covid-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Daszak wrote.
“From my perspective, your comments are brave, and coming from your trusted voice, will help dispel the myths being spun around the virus’ origins,” he continued.
“Once this pandemic’s over I look forward thanking you in person and let you know how important your comments are to us all.”
Fauci response was “Many thanks for your kind note.”
In a February 19, 2020 statement in medical journal The Lancet, Daszak joined other authors in dismissing the possibility that the COVID-19 coronavirus had a human origin. He was also a member of the WHO team sent to China to investigate the origin of the virus.
Collins, who as Director of the NIH is essentially Fauci's superior, also has ties to the WIV. One of the published Fauci emails revealed that the NIH gave a $3.7 million grant to the EcoHealth Alliance for research of the coronavirus in bats, of which $600,000 was channelled to the Wuhan lab.
Meanwhile, EcoHealth funded the research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology that developed the ‘use of Remdesivir’ to treat coronaviruses. In protesting the NIH decision to cut its coronavirus research funding, EcoHealth reported that “genetic sequences of two bat coronaviruses that we discovered with this grant have been used as lab tools to test the breakthrough antiviral drug Remdesivir.”
Fauci personally promoted the use of Remdesivir in the treatment of COVID-19. In a presentation to the White House on April 29, 2020, he stated that Remdesivir “has a clear cut, significant, positive effect in diminishing the time to recover [from the coronavirus].”
Collins has also promoted the use of Remdesivir. He instituted the Treatment Guidelines for COVID-19, which recommends the drug at three of the five stages of the disease. The NIH promotes the Remdesivir as an early intervention treatment, for those requiring supplemental oxygen, and for those whose symptoms are accelerating, but not yet severe enough to be admitted into ICU.
PETITION UPDATE (5/12/2021) -
It seems that Dr. Anthony Fauci's role in the NIH's funding of so-called "gain-of-function" research may be catching up with him.
In the last couple of days, both U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Fox's Tucker Carlson have laid into Fauci for his alleged promotion of this dangerous research which develops bat-based coronaviruses into more potent variants, capable of infecting humans.
Dr. Fauci denied funding this research.
But, Senator Paul noted that a resident virologist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zheng-li and Dr. Ralph Baric, an American virologist funded by Fauci's department in the NIH, "collaborated on gain-of-function research where they enhanced the SARS virus to infect human airway cells and they did it by merging a new spy protein on it. That is gain-of-function. That was joint research between the Wuhan Institute and Dr. Baric. You [Dr. Fauci] can’t deny it."
And, later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson picked up on the discrepancy, noting Fauci’s involvement in the creation and promotion of public health directives on account of COVID-19 while also being allegedly tied to the origin of the virus and its spread throughout the world.
So, the evidence - both in testimony and in the court of public opinion - continues to mount.
Could we ask you to consider SIGNING and SHARING this important petition, which calls for Dr. Fauci to be fired and investigated for any role he played in promoting and funding the dangerous research which may have cost the world dearly in lives and jobs lost.
When concerned scientists warned the US government of the great danger of creating superviruses in the lab, one man publicly defended the risky experiments: that man was the influential head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), none other than "Mr. Science" himself: Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In 2014, the same year the US government called for a moratorium on this insanely dangerous research, Dr. Fauci's NIAID began funding a program to study the transmission of bat coronaviruses to humans.
Not only did his funding go to develop the technology for making bat coronaviruses spread more easily to humans, but much of it went to the lab located in the exact location where the Covid pandemic eventually emerged: Wuhan, China.
Like every person, Dr. Fauci deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
But the evidence is so overwhelming that Fauci gambled with a supervirus and lost (the whole world lost), that, at a minimum, he needs to be fired from his position of public trust and must be investigated for possible violations of US law which mandated a moratorium on this extremely dangerous practice of creating superviruses in the lab.
However Dr. Fauci, far from being held responsible for his dangerous gamble, has been promoted to the point where, currently, he is the highest paid employee in the US Government.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition if you agree that Dr. Anthony Fauci should instead be immediately fired and investigated for his role in causing the Covid-19 pandemic.
Just like the Wall Street moguls, whose financial negligence precipitated the financial crisis of 2008, received massive bailout bonuses, Dr. Anthony Fauci recklessly pushed for the research that probably caused the deadly pandemic. And now, he, too, has been rewarded with money and power.
As has been carefully and meticulously documented by Steve Hilton of Fox News, the probable origins of the coronavirus point to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Fauci was one of the greatest proponents of developing superviruses in labs.
Dr. Fauci was responsible for the funding of much of the research through the NIAID.
And, it appears that Dr. Fauci funneled taxpayer funds through an intermediary to allow the research to continue in the unsafe Wuhan Institute of Virology, even after the US government banned the funding of this dangerous research.
Until a thorough investigation into his role of the origins of the current pandemic has taken place, Dr. Fauci should not be in a position of public trust.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to demand that Dr. Fauci be fired immediately and investigated fully for his role in the creation of Covid-19 and the ensuing pandemic.
P.S. It should be noted that Dr. Fauci not only has proven to be catastrophic for public health with his advocacy of dangerous research, but he has also been a disastrous public health advisor, advocating measures that have negatively impacted every aspect of our lives, from the economy to our most fundamental liberties.
P.P.S. Dr. Anthony Fauci, recently stated that he is delighted to be pushing Joe Biden's return to US taxpayer funding of abortions abroad. So, evidently, not only does Dr. Fauci have problems with public health, public safety, and economics, but also with basic human rights and embryology.

One course of treatment of Remdesivir costs over $ 3100 US, which is good news for patent-holder Gilead Sciences. Reuters reported in February 2020 that the Wuhan Institute of Virology had applied to patent the use of the drug for use as a COVID-19 medicine. According to the news agency, Gilead said that it was working with China to test the drug in a small number of COVID-19 patients.
However, not everyone is a Remdesivir fan. In November 2020, the World Health Organization issued a conditional recommendation against using the drug, stating, “The evidence suggested no important effect on mortality, need for mechanical ventilation, time to clinical improvement, and other patient-important outcomes.”
To date, this has not been retracted or amended.
If Remdesivir’s star falls, could Ivermectin’s rise?
Ivermectin, an antiparasitic medicine used in both humans and animals for 50 years, has been tried and found successful both as a preventative and as an early intervention treatment.
The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FCCC) has been monitoring the effectiveness of the drug against the coronavirus. Ivermectin, the FLCCC explains, “is a well-known, FDA-approved anti-parasite drug that has been used successfully for more than four decades to treat onchocerciasis “river blindness” and other parasitic diseases. It is one of the safest drugs known. It is on the WHO’s list of essential medicines, has been given 3.7 billion times around the globe, and has won the Nobel prize for its global and historic impacts in eradicating endemic parasitic infections in many parts of the world.”
On December 8, 2020, Dr. Pierry Kory, head of the FCCC, testified before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs regarding the use of Ivermectin in COVID cases.
“Ivermectin is a miracle drug,” he stated. “If you take it, you will not get sick.”
In a recent review of the emerging evidence that Ivermectin is an effective treatment for COVID-19, the FCCC reported that the drug has been used successfully on a mass scale in Goa, India, Mexico, Peru, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.
The cost for eight tablets of Ivermectin comes to about $45US.
Despite the continued reported success of Ivermectin, the drug is absent from the NIH Treatment Guidelines and is only recommended under ‘Additional Considerations’ for those Covid patients living where parasitic worms are endemic.
The WHO opposes the general use of Ivermectin to treat the coronavirus, however. In their March 2021 announcement, they recommended against using the drug “in patients with COVID-19 except in the context of a clinical trial.”
Hydroxychloroquine, the drug announced and used by former President Donald Trump as COVID-19 medication has also been side-lined. Fauci, the FDA, and the NIH have all denounced its effectiveness and warned against using it to treat the coronavirus. The WHO issued a ‘strong recommendation’ (December 2020) against its use remarking that this “applies to patients with any disease severity and any duration of symptoms.”
Last May Daszak has also signalled his disapproval of hydroxychloroquine by tweeting an Reuters article about the drug. He introduced it with the quotation “Researchers found that patients on hydroxychloroquine did not get better significantly faster than those not treated with the drug. Adverse events were also higher inpatients receiving the malaria drug.”
However, Yale University’s Dr Harvey Risch is a firm proponent of the drug’s use against COVID-19. The epidemiologist caused a stir in medical circles, including his own workplace, when he advocated the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus. Last May, he published an article in the American Journal of Epidemiology entitled “Early Outpatient Treatment of Symptomatic, High-Risk COVID-19 Patients that Should be Ramped-Up Immediately as Key to the Pandemic Crisis.” Last August, he told Fox News host Mark Levin that the evidence was “overwhelming” that hydroxychloroquine reduces risk of hospitalization or death from COVID-19.”
America's Frontline Doctors are also convinced that hydroxychloroquine is effective. In its 29-page “White Paper“, the not-for-profit citizen’s advocacy organization concluded that “Chloroquine, a relatively safe, effective and cheap drug used for treating many human diseases including malaria, amoebiosis and human immunodeficiency virus is effective in inhibiting the infection and spread of SARS CoV [an earlier coronavirus] in cell culture.”
The White Paper continued: “The fact that the drug has significant inhibitory antiviral effect when the susceptible cells were treated either prior to or after infection suggests a possible prophylactic and therapeutic use.”
The document makes the following important observation regarding the continual promotion of Remdesivir:
“It is well known that newly patented drugs can be extremely profitable if there is demand and no other supply. The demand for Gilead’s Remdesivir, which is used late in the disease, obviously will plummet if the disease is stopped by HCQ early. Remdesivir is sold for $3200-$5700 per treatment and the federal government has already purchased all or most of it. The generic HCQ is ~$10 per treatment.”
Remdesivir, Gilead Sciences notes on their website, “has been approved or authorized for temporary use as a COVID-19 treatment in approximately 50 countries worldwide.”
