Exhibit A is this Nature Medicine article 2015. It describes a collaboration between UNC scientists and the Wuhan Virology Lab, funded jointly by Fauci’s NIAID, and the Chinese NSF. They describe modifying the bat coronavirus, the very one that is most closely related to the SARS-CoV2 pandemic. They use genetic engineering to add an ability to bind to the human ACE2 receptor, the very same modification that makes SARS-CoV2 so contagious. And research takes place in Wuhan, the very city where first Chinese cases were reported.

It is morally outrageous that such research should be proceeding. It has been against International Law since 1975 (based on a 1969 treaty), and explicitly outlawed in the US since 1989. The law singles out research in gain-of-function engineering, as described in the Nature Medicine article.
