Did You Know That You’re Funding Dangerous Chinese Bird Flu Research?

U.S. tax dollars are being directed towards a project at a Chinese military lab attempting to enhance the virulence of bird flu. The project involves the Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which oversees the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology. Eighteen members of Congress have demanded answers.

The $1 million project, which intends to make highly pathogenic avian influenza more transmissible to mammals, began in 2021 and is due to receive funding until 2026.

Rep. Nick Langworthy, a New York Republican, organized a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack decrying the research, which involves experiments with “highly pathogenic” bird flu strains to assess their ability to jump between species.

“This research, funded by American taxpayers, could potentially generate dangerous new lab-created virus strains that threaten our national security and public health,” the letter warns.

Bird flu is currently spreading in the United States and has already jumped to cattle. There have now been instances of the virus jumping to people working with infected animals, too, with experts warning a bird flu pandemic could be “100 times worse than COVID… if [the virus] mutates and maintains its high case fatality rate.”

U.S. taxpayers are not only funding potentially dangerous bird flu research, however. Peter Daszak, the Anthony Fauci-linked researcher whose EcoHealth Alliance group has been accused of involvement in the Wuhan Institute of Virology leaking COVID-19, continues to receive funding for work with exotic viruses in bats, pangolins, and other animals.

“The U.S. taxpayer is funding recklessness,” Rutgers University virologist Dr. Richard Ebright warned of the research in January.
