NIH director Erbedling NOW admit Boston lab that created new COVID chimera strain did NOT clear research with agency & only learned of details in media; NIH was 'unaware' of the nature of research

Director claims to have only found out the experiments may have involved enhancing pathogens on Monday; the research was NOT authorized, in spite of getting the funding; axis now Fauci, BU, Daszak
The issue is these people just do not care. Power drunk, grant loving people, drunk on tax-payer grant money and dark motives.
Erbedling at NIH is now stumbling backwards to explain it away.
“She claims she only found out the experiments might have involved enhancing a pathogen of pandemic potential after reading reports in the media on Monday.
Dr Erbelding admitted feeling uneasy about the type of research the grants had been used to fund — given the lingering questions about the role of virus manipulation studies and the origins of Covid.”
Can you imagine the director is saying she was uneasy about the research yet they funded it?
“A senior US health official today admitted that controversial Covid manipulation research carried out in a laboratory in Boston was not authorized — despite being funded by taxpayer money.”
“Gain-of-function research — tweaking with viruses to potentially make them more lethal or infectious — was halted in the US from 2014 to 2017 over fears it could inadvertently trigger a pandemic.
But five years ago it was allowed to restart with NIH-backed grants with proponents arguing it could help the world prepare for the next severe illness.”
