Happening Now: Is Dr. Anthony Fauci now admitting that former President Donald J. Trump was right all along about the genesis of COVID19?
“Anthony Fauci said recently that he is “not convinced” COVID-19 developed naturally and called for further investigation into the virus’s origins after the lab-leak theory had been dismissed by many as a right-wing conspiracy theory for months,” according to National Review.
“At an event earlier this month, PolitiFact’s Katie Sanders noted that there is still “a lot of cloudiness around the origins of COVID-19” and asked Fauci if he is “still confident that it developed naturally,” according to footage of the event which was resurfaced by Fox News on Sunday.
“‘No actually,’ Fauci said at the “United Facts of America: A Festival of Fact-Checking” event.
“‘I am not convinced about that,’ he added. ‘I think we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we continue to find out to the best of our ability what happened.’ [emphasis added]
“He continued: ‘Certainly, the people who investigated it say it likely was the emergence from an animal reservoir that then infected individuals, but it could have been something else, and we need to find that out. So, you know, that’s the reason why I said I’m perfectly in favor of any investigation that looks into the origin of the virus.’ [emphasis added]
“The comments mark a shift from Fauci’s earlier position: In May 2020, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director largely dismissed the theory that the novel coronavirus could have leaked from a lab.” [emphasis added]
