HHS Pulls Funding from Wuhan Lab 

House committee on the pandemic recommended the move. 

Representative Brad Westrup of Ohio, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, spoke about the investigations conducted by the committee. He said, “The Wuhan Institute of Virology should not receive another cent of U.S. taxpayer funding.” The committee has urged both the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Health and Human Safety regarding such funding. 

The Department of Health and Human Services issued a notice this week barring that Chinese laboratory from federal funding for ten years. In a letter directed to the Director of the Wuhan lab, the NIH said, “[The] National Institutes of Health determined that the WIV may have conducted an experiment yielding a level of viral activity which was greater than permitted under the terms of the grant… which possibly did lead or could lead to health issues or other unacceptable outcomes.” 

Congress has requested additional information from NIH and testimony from leadership has been scheduled for December.   

Representative Westrup said, “Covering up for the failures of a Chinese lab, hiding critical evidence from the American people, and facilitating the public promotion of a false, alternative narrative is extremely concerning and deserves thorough investigation. The Select Subcommittee will continue to investigate the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic and the possible cover-up by America’s public health leaders.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Xavier Becerra to be led by God as he heads the Health and Human Services Department.
  • For Acting Director Lawrence Tabak as he oversees the National Institutes of Health.
  • For members of the House of Representatives as they seek to guide funding from the U.S. government.
