The U.S. Senate this month confirmed Bertagnolli, a cancer researcher and recent breast cancer survivor. She succeeds Francis Collins, who retired. At her Senate nomination hearing October 18, National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Monica Bertagnolli was asked point-blank by Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) if she believes the federal government should “do everything it can to determine the cause of Covid-19.”NIH under Collins made research grants to the EcoHealth Alliance that assisted in gain of function research at the Wuhan, China facility, a June, 2023 General Accounting Office report found

“Do you believe the federal government should do everything it can to determine the cause of Covid-19, including the possibility that it emerged from a lab that was conducting gain of function research?,” Cassidy asked.

See video for her answer…perhaps best characterized as a mild ‘yes,’ showing little or no desire to initiate an investigation.

  1. We know where it came from and they know we know. So they might as well own up. What the NIH needs to admit is the real reason for the virus and the vaccine.

  2. Will the NIH, under new leadership, zealously seek answers to the cause of the Covid-19 virus, even if it leads back to the U.S.?
    I sure hope so. Someone needs to be held accountable, no matter what country they are from. And, I don’t think it is all China either.

  3. Congress and the Senate have no intention of getting around to holding anyone accountable for crimes against humanity. God will be doling out the judgement upon all involved and that day is coming down the line like a freight train.

  4. Dr. Peter Breggin at the Vermont Global Covid Summit, provided us with the yeoman’s work in unveiling the origins and how it evolved. If you would like to see a parsed version of that transcript or hear his comments – go to
