The following is one example of a much larger problem, not just at this institution, but all across the United States involving billions of taxpayer dollars in knowledge, skills, and research grants being fed into China’s virus research laboratories, no doubt, some going to its biowarfare program.
The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston is a major virus research center heavily funded by the National Institutes of Health, especially Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
In August 2020, UTMB was designated by Anthony Fauci as one of the ten Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases and newly funded by an NIAID grant totaling $82 million.
Perhaps not coincidentally, Fauci also designated Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance, a long-time collaborator with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, as another Center for Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases, awarding it $7.5 million.
UTMB is also the home of the Department of Defense-funded Center for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases.
UTMB has one of the few Biosafety Level 4 facilities for containing and conducting research on the world’s most dangerous viruses.
One does not need to dig very deeply to find that UTMB has been infiltrated by scientists of the People’s Liberation Army, some believed to be linked to China’s biowarfare program.
This is happening right now, not something that happened ten years ago.
