In a wild twist of events, COVID-19’s supposed leading expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, shocked his Democrat bosses when he expressed doubt that the virus could have started naturally. Since the virus was discovered, experts and especially Democrats have weighed in on where the virus could have originated. The current narrative puts the blame on bats, but like former President Donald Trump, Dr. Fauci isn’t so easily convinced that the virus wasn't created in a lab.
Sounding a lot like President Trump, Dr. Fauci made his announcement while speaking to Katie Sanders of PolitiFact. Discussing the virus with the nation’s leading disease expert, Sanders asked, "There’s a lot of cloudiness around the origins of COVID-19 still, so I wanted to ask, are you still confident that it developed naturally?"
Expecting the normal answer repeated by every Democrat, Sanders was confused when Fauci said, "No actually. I am not convinced about that, 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. 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."
While some might believe Dr. Fauci spoke out of turn; he repeated his concern about the virus’s origin when questioned by Senator Rand Paul. The senator asked, "Will you in front of this group categorically say that the COVID-19 virus could not have occurred by serial passage in a laboratory?"
Again, Dr. Fauci appeared to show support for investigating China as the culprit behind the COVID-19 pandemic. "I do not have any accounting of what the Chinese may have done, and I'm fully in favor of any further investigation of what went on in China."
Dr. Fauci’s newest revelation about the virus comes after President Trump and many Republicans called for an investigation into the China lab leak theory over a year ago. It should also be noted that the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday that three scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology received hospital treatment back in November of 2019 for COVID-19 related symptoms.
As the investigation into the origin of COVID-19 continues, it appears that President Trump was right yet again to press China for answers. And now with more and more experts coming to the same conclusion, Americans might finally learn who was behind the pandemic that spiraled the world into chaos.
