Administration Cuts All Funding to Wuhan Lab 

After being the focus of many investigations, the lab was identified as the source of the COVID outbreak.

The White House announced this week that steps have been taken to permanently block the Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China, from receiving U.S. funds. Wuhan is the city where the COVID-19 outbreak began, and possibly from mishandling the virus at the lab. 

Officials said a review of the facility found areas of non-compliance with federal regulations. The lab was informed of the U.S. decision in a memo where they were told the U.S. plans to block the institute from receiving any potential future support. 

A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services said, “This action will ensure the [Wuhan Institute of Virology] does not receive another dollar of federal funding.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Becerra to seek God’s direction as he heads the federal health department.
  • For HHS officials to be discerning as they assess national health risks and trends.
  • For the president and administration officials as they evaluate investments that are made in science and research.
