National Institute of Health Validates Wuhan Lab Theory of Covid-19

Objectivity 2.3 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.7

A NIH letter corroborates allegations about the Wuhan Lab leak theory on Covid-19 origins. Principal Deputy Director for NIH, Lawrence A. Tabak, explains in the letter how the NIH funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology through a nonprofit from New York–EcoHealth. Although the letter seems to justify the research, critics point to it as proof of NIH funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan.
