Its would fair to say just because Dr. Fauci had a hand in sending grant money to the Virology lab in Wuhan, that doesn't mean he was directly behind in directing the creation of this Coivd virus. Just because you give money to a institution doesn't mean you know exactly whats going on there
But you would have a very direct incentive to promote the idea that they couldn't have anything todo with it, and it had to be another source.
Just one more reason not to listen to Fauci. He's in it for himself and he's demonstrated himself to be more than clueless and wrong on multiple occasions.
