Judicial Watch, a legal watchdog non-partisan organisation, has released 90 bombshell documents that contain communications about financial grants between America’s National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). 

Mounting evidence since the beginning of the pandemic suggests that a WIV laboratory conducting experiments on bat coronaviruses was the source of COVID-19 and that the virus outbreak was first recorded in December 2019.

The documents also feature communication records between the State Department and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), led by US Chief Medical Advisor Dr Anthony Fauci. The documents suggest that US officials knew the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was deliberately hiding crucial COVID-19 data before the pandemic outbreak, which delayed risk assessment and strategic cooperation to slow the global spread of the virus.

According to Fox News Digital, Judicial Watch acquired the papers through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

“These FOIA documents show that Fauci’s agency has been hiding information on China’s failure to provide essential data on COVID-19,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News Digital.

“The slow-rolling and stonewalling by Fauci’s agency on China, gain of function [experimentation to increase the lethality of a virus), and its COVID response generally is pure obstruction.”

“While [People’s Republic of China (PRC)] health officials have released timely and open general information about the outbreak, a lack of epidemiological data, including an ‘epi curve’ (a summary of dates of onset of the illness), characteristics of infected individuals and other basic epidemiological information hinders better risk assessment and response by public health officials,” stated an email sent by the American Embassy in Beijing on January 7, 2020, titled “PRC Response to Pneumonia Cases Shows Increased Transparency Over Past Outbreaks, but Gaps in Epidemiological Data Remain”.

“Authorities have also not released information on how they are defining a ‘case.’ Given these gaps in detailed information to-date, and lack of a final confirmed pathogen, the risk to the United States and global health is difficult to assess at this time,” the email continued.

“The flow of official PRC information on this outbreak is limited to that coming from the Wuhan Health Commission and National Health Commission. China CDC is referring queries to the three official notices issued to-date by the Wuhan Health Commission.”

Furthermore, the communications between US officials and CCP officials show that both were cooperating to support the WIV, the alleged pandemic source.

For example, the American Embassy in Beijing noted Communist China’s interest in the Global Virome Project (GVP), which monitors virus spillover from animals, and international collaborations to advance global research on viruses in nature.

“China has expressed considerable interest in becoming a leader of this nascent global effort by contributing to collaborative academic papers, hosting symposia, participating in international activities and by proposing its own associated China Virome Project,” stated the Embassy cable.

“While the GVP will have to navigate complex issues concerning sharing of specimens and data across national borders, China’s interest in the Global Virome Project, represents a positive indication that health cooperation, safeguarding global health security and advancing innovation in science remain priorities for China and presents new ground for potential U.S.-China collaboration.”

Another cable from April 2018 reveals experts affiliated with the NIH directly supported the training of WIV lab technicians on lab management and maintenance.

“In addition to French assistance, experts from the NIH-supported P4 lab at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston have trained Wuhan lab technicians in lab management and maintenance…” stated the cable.

“The Wuhan institute plans to invite scientists from the Galveston lab to do research in Wuhan’s lab. One Wuhan Institute of Virology researcher trained for two years at the Galveston lab, and the institute also sent one scientist to US CDC headquarters in Atlanta for six months’ work on influenza.”
