Republican Rep. Scott Perry proposes a bill to stop US funding of Wuhan lab

That’s it. That’s the bill. Only other thing it proposes is a study to see how federal funds were sent from the US to China within the last 15 years.

At least one Republican in Washington DC is attempting to think outside the box when it comes to proactive solutions to stopping pandemic situations from happening.

As highlighted by Daily Caller, the Defund the Wuhan Institute of Virology Act proposes barring all US federal agencies from sending money to the Wuhan lab at the center of the lab leak theory.

The outlet confirmed that the lab in China is still eligible for taxpayer funding through at least January 2024.

It’s a simple two-page bill put forward by Representative Perry of Pennsylvania. Alongside a ban on funding, a second directive demands a proper study about the money America had already given the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“Not later than 2 years after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Comptroller General of the United States shall conduct a study, and submit to Congress a report, on the amount of Federal funds awarded or indirectly given to Wuhan Institute of Virology or researchers affiliated with Wuhan Institute of Virology, during the 15-year period preceding such date of enactment were provided, whether purposely or inadvertently, to the People’s Republic of China, Chinese Communist Party, or the Wuhan Institute of Virology, or any agency or instrumentality thereof.”

The general public has been left to wonder about the origins of the Coronavirus pandemic simply because of the uncooperative nature of the Chinese. Early on in 2020 many noticed the unusual relationship between Beijing and the World Health Organization. Something that essentially culminated in China having significant amounts of sway over W.H.O.’s investigatory work.

Earlier this week Senator Rand Paul questioned Dr. Anthony Fauci in a public hearing over whether or not he supported the purported NIH’s funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In response, Dr. Fauci issued a strong blanket denial and then made it a semantic game about the money flow not being exact.

The notion that the COVID pandemic started as a result of shoddy safeguards in a virus experimentation lab have been floating around for quite some time. But recently the public’s focus on it has reignited as it was reported that the NIH gave financial grants to the Wuhan lab to study “bat-based coronaviruses.”
