Trump Says He’ll End Obama-Era Funding to Wuhan Lab Suspected for Coronavirus Outbreak


President Trump has announced that he will stop funding to the Wuhan lab that is currently being investigated for spawning the coronavirus.

While the Chinese government has claimed that the novel coronavirus began from a meat market, many are questioning the communist government’s official account.

The U.S. National Institutione of Health (NIH) provided the Chinese lab $3.7 million in funding to do research on coronavirus, performing experiments on bats.

It is reported that the Chinese lab was experimenting on bats.

However, sequencing of the COVID-19 genome has revealed that the bats that spawned the novel coronavirus come from Yunnan, China, not Wuhan, China.

Yunnan is 1,000 miles away, which has led many to believe that scientists may have transported the bats to the lab for the experiments.

Regardless, the situation is currently under investigation, and President Trump has pledged to stop NIH funding to the Chinese lab.

The funding began under the Obama administration.
