On March 5, the GOP-led Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic released a memo citing evidence that showed Fauci “prompted the drafting of ‘Proximal Origins’ to disprove the lab leak theory” in 2020.
“The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2” was published in Nature magazine in March 2020 and written by Dr. Kristian Andersen of Scripps Research (Scripps), which advanced the natural transmission theory, at the behest of Dr. Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins, despite a February conference call where the two were “warned that COVID-19 may have leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China.”
