Fauci: ‘Everyone Agrees’ Covid Was ‘Not Engineered’ Into a ‘Bioweapon’
Former White House coronavirus task force leader absurdly claims a Wuhan lab worker could have gotten infected by a bat “in the wild.”
Former NIAID chief Dr. Anthony Fauci tried to dispel the all-but-certain conclusion that COVID-19 was engineered at a lab for bioweapon research.
Fauci appeared on “CNN Newsroom” on Saturday to push back against the growing consensus that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
“One of the things that maybe people don’t appreciate, is that all of the intelligence agencies agree unanimously that this was not engineered,” Fauci stressed to host Jim Acosta.
“Namely, they didn’t deliberately do this to make a bioweapon. Everybody agrees with that, no matter what your prior thoughts were, everybody agrees with that.”
Fauci then put forward a ridiculous hypothesis that perhaps COVID did leak from a lab — after a bat first infected a lab worker “in the wild,” which would still make the virus “natural.”
“A lab leak could be that someone was out in the wild maybe looking for different types of viruses in bats, got infected, went into a lab, and was being studied in a lab, and then came out of the lab. But if that’s the definition of lab leak, then that’s still a natural occurrence,” Fauci explained.
“The other possibility is someone takes a virus from the environment that doesn’t actually spread very well in humans, and manipulates it a bit, and accidentally it escapes or accidentally infects someone and then you get an outbreak.”
Fauci’s assertion that “everybody agrees” with the notion COVID-19 occurred naturally was repudiated by the likes of former CDC director Robert Redfield and FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Redfield during a congressional hearing last week admitted that COVID-19 was likely created as a result of gain of function research funded by numerous U.S. government agencies, which “caused the greatest pandemic our world has ever seen.”

Ms. Malliotakis: “Is it likely that American tax dollars funded the gain-of-function research that created this virus?”

Notably, despite Fauci’s constant denials, the NIAID, the very agency he headed, admitted in 2021 to funding gain of function research at the Wuhan lab.
