Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told “Axios” on Sunday that he wants Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), fired after the National Institutes of Health (NIH) admitted in a letter to Congress that it funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.
“And so in the letter they acknowledge that, yes, the viruses did gain in function. They became more dangerous. So they’ve created a virus. It doesn’t exist in nature. It’s become more dangerous. That is gain of function,” he said.
“Now, they try to justify it by saying, ‘Well, it was an unexpected result.’ I’m not sure I buy that. Think about it. You take an unknown virus, you combine it with another virus, and you get a super virus. You have no idea whether it gains functions or loses function,” Paul said. –Source
