Why are we only now hearing about the “Anthony Fauci-run lab in MONTANA that experimented with a coronavirus strain shipped in from Wuhan a year BEFORE the Covid pandemic began”?!
Editor’s Note: What is quite astonishing about the following exposé is that the inimitably treacherous Dr. Fauci was able to keep his Montana biolab under wraps for so long. After nearly fours years of extensive investigations into the true origins of COVID-19, the following bombshell disclosures are being made only now. And the bioweapon laboratory is right here in our own back yard. Now that’s an impressive cover-up!
REVEALED: Anthony Fauci-run lab in MONTANA experimented with coronavirus strain shipped in from Wuhan a year BEFORE Covid pandemic began
- The NIH infected 12 bats with a SARS-like coronavirus in 2018
- The virus was shipped from Wuhan to an NIH lab in Montana

US taxpayer money was used to experiment with coronaviruses from the Chinese lab thought to be the source of the Covid pandemic more than a year before the global outbreak, an investigation has found.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), under Dr Anthony Fauci‘s leadership, infected 12 Egyptian fruit bats with a ‘SARS-like’ virus called WIV1 at a lab in Montana in 2018.
The WIV1-coronavirus was shipped from the Wuhan lab the FBI believes caused the Covid pandemic and was tested on bats acquired from a ‘roadside’ Maryland zoo.
The research – revealed this week by a campaign group – determined the novel virus could not cause a ‘robust infection’.
But the research is more evidence of ties between the US government and the Wuhan lab, as well as the funding of dangerous virus research across the globe.
Eight novel viruses, including one belonging to the same family as Covid, were found in labs across China
Between 2015 and 2023, at least seven US entities supplied NIH grant money to labs in China performing animal experiments, totaling $3,306,061
The paper – SARS-Like Coronavirus WIV1-CoV Does Not Replicate in Egyptian Fruit Bats – was published in the journal Viruses in 2018. The study was first flagged by DRASTIC, a group of internet activists who investigate the origins of Covid-19 and the lab leak theory.
The group White Coat Waste Project is now using the Freedom of Information Act to request more details about the experiment.
The White Coat Waste Project is a watchdog that has been fighting to stop sending American tax dollars overseas to fund dangerous virus research.
The 2018 experiment was carried out at the NIH’s Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Montana, which was overseen by Fauci, the former director of National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Scientists obtained 12 Egyptian fruit bats from a Maryland zoo and inoculated them with the WIV1-coronavirus, which was first detected in Chinese rufous horseshoe bats.
They performed exams on the animals daily and measured things like body weight and temperature. Scientists also took samples from the bats’ noses and throats.
On days three, seven and 28, four of the bats were euthanized and their heart, liver, kidney, spleen, bladder, reproductive organs, eyes and brain were collected for analysis. Scientists also analyzed white blood cell count and antibodies.
Researchers determined the WIV1-coronavirus did not cause ‘a robust infection’ and ‘observed very limited evidence of virus replication.’
The bats had been sent from a ‘roadside’ Maryland zoo to the Montana facility allegedly by the zoo’s curator and director of animal health, who had previously worked at the in-house animal testing labs at the NIH from 2003 to 2012, the WCW said.
Records show the preserve confined 523 federally-regulated animals as of April 2023, including 241 bats, of which 41 were Egyptian fruit bats.

The virus strain was obtained from the Wuhan lab experts believe caused the Covid-19 pandemic
Shi Zhengli – dubbed the ‘Bat Lady’ or ‘Bat Woman’ for her work on bat coronaviruses – investigated the possibility Covid could have emerged from her lab back in 2020, according to colleagues
A visitor left a review last month: ‘How is this place even legal?
‘I left heart broken and sad. The enclosures are so small and not well kept. This place is so unkept. It’s awful. It needs to be shut down. You can see the pain in these animals eyes. Something has to be done about this place.
‘This is not a preserve. It’s a place where animals are sent to suffer and be on display for humans. Disgusting.’
Despite the lack of transmission in the bats in 2018, similar dangerous research on viruses that could spark another pandemic have been ongoing across the globe for years.
And while there is debate over whether the pandemic began because a virus jumped from animals to humans or it was leaked from a lab in China, the lab-leak theory is what the FBI and other government agencies now subscribe to.
EXCLUSIVE: Virologist who funded Wuhan experiments admits lab leak is possible for first time — after years of squashing probes into Covid origins
A scientist at the center of the Covid lab leak theory has admitted he cannot rule out the possibility the virus escaped a Chinese research facility.
Most recently, Chinese virus hunters have been tinkering with novel pathogens that have a ‘high probability’ of infecting humans, despite concerns similar experiments led to the Covid outbreak.revealed last week
US taxpayer dollars are being sent to shady laboratories in China to fund cruel and dangerous experiments on animals.also reported in August that millions of
Despite the shipment of funds across the world, America actually performs the most gain-of-function virus research.
Gain-of-function experiments involve making pathogens more infectious or deadly.
Advocates say the tests help science get ahead of future outbreaks, but critics say the risks of a leak outweigh any potential benefits.
These fears prompted US officials to quietly shut down a taxpayer-funded $125million project last month that hunted for new viruses.
The program, DEEP VZN – pronounced deep vision – was launched in October 2021 with the aim of finding and studying novel pathogens in wildlife in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
While the research was meant to prevent human outbreaks and pandemics, critics, including Biden administration officials, were afraid it would do the opposite and voiced their fears about the potentially ‘catastrophic risks’ of virus hunting.
In a statement from the president and founder of WCW, Anthony Bellotti said: ‘Our investigation has uncovered the real-life horror story of how a shady roadside zoo whose curator was an NIH animal experimenter shipped off bats to a deadly government virus lab overseen by Dr. Fauci to be infected with a coronavirus obtained directly from the Wuhan lab that experts believe caused COVID.’
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
