This is a huge story that has not been widely followed up on. Has any reporter asked Dr. Fauci about it? If not, why not? Just kidding, we all know the answer. Many links in the original:
 
... in October 2014, because of public health concerns, the US government banned all federal funding on efforts to weaponize three viruses – influenza, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).
 
In the face of a moratorium in the US, Dr Anthony Fauci – the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and currently the leading doctor in the US Coronavirus Task Force – outsourced in 2015 the GOF research to China’s Wuhan lab and licensed the lab to continue receiving US government funding....
 
Wouldn’t it be great if we had a free press that might ask questions about reports like this one? The problem, of course, is that Dr. Fauci would be the guy on the hot seat, and he is a revered “expert” in the press’s narrative. Even more important, Fauci’s enlistment of the Wuhan lab to do research banned in the U.S. happened in 2015–that is to say, during the Obama administration. If it had occurred during the Trump administration, there would be nothing else on the front pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post.
