Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “British researcher is given ANOTHER grant by NIH to investigate COVID”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Such research, known as 'gain of function', can see viruses deliberately engineered to become more dangerous to humans.

EcoHealth Alliance's five-year experiment will investigate 'the potential for future bat coronavirus emergence' in Asia, with scientists set to trawl caves in Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam in the hunt to prevent another viral crisis.

The grant was awarded last month by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is still ran by Dr Anthony Fauci.
