In addition to funding research groups collaborating with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Anthony Fauci also approved National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases researchers’ attendance at a conference sponsored by the lab believed by many to be the source of COVID-19. The 2016 Conference on Viral Infection and Immune Response, hosted by the Nature science journal, has been scrubbed from publication’s website, but The National Pulse has located archived versions of the site. Two researchers from Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) were in attendance at the 2016 event which discussed emerging viral diseases, infections and antiviral immunity — all critical to the COVID-19 response. Dr. Fauci has served as Director of the institute since 1984 and remains the highest paid U.S. government employee despite a bevy of false prognostications and outright lies. At the time of the conference, attendee Kanta Subbarao served as Chief of the NIAID’s Emerging Respiratory Viruses Section and Nancy Sullivan served as Chief of the Biodefense Research Section at the NIAID’s Vaccine Research Center.
