BIOWEAPONS SMOKING GUN: Chinese scientist who mapped SARS-CoV-2 two weeks before China told world about COVID received CASH from NIH
Documents unearthed last month by the U.S. House of Representatives Energy & Commerce Committee as part of an ongoing investigation into the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) reveal that a Chinese scientist receiving U.S. tax dollars from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) mapped SARS-CoV-2 just two weeks before China officially announced COVID and its sequence to the world.
Investigative journalist Paul D. Thacker uncovered the revelation from the documents, which were submitted to a United States government database in December 2019. They show that Dr. Lili Ren, who is affiliated with the Institute of Pathogen Biology in Beijing, is the scientist that did the deed in mapping SARS-CoV-2 right before China unveiled it on the world stage.
Dr. Ren not only has connections to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the People’s Liberation Army of China, she is also pals with Dr. Tony Fauci, one of the U.S.-based ringleaders of the COVID scam.
According to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the story on January 17, the Institute of Pathogen Biology in Beijing is part of the state-affiliated Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences.
The documents show that, in the days leading up to COVID’s unveiling on the world stage, Dr. Ren, who mapped it, was on the payroll of the NIH, the agency that oversees the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which was directed by Fauci at the time.
“The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has confirmed that Dr. Ren’s Dec. 28, 2019, sequence was nearly identical to the sequence later made public by the China CDC on Jan. 10, 2020, which at the time was the first known sequence,” the committee that obtained these incriminating documents said about them in a statement.
The WSJ also commented on the revelations, stating they raise “questions anew about what China knew in the pandemic’s crucial early days.”

NIH deleted Dr. Ren’s SARS-CoV-2 sequence following submission
Thacker, writing for The Disinformation Chronicle, also wrote that these disclosures are “calling into further question what officials at the [NIH] knew about research they were funding in China where the pandemic began.”
It was a grant awarded to none other than Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance that exposed Dr. Ren as being on the NIH’s payroll in December 2019. The grant came in 2014 and was purposed for a multi-year project called, “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.”
“The grant shows that taxpayers paid Ren a salary, although NIH redacted the amounts for salary and benefits,” Thacker writes.
The documents showing all this only came about after the committee threatened to subpoena the HHS, which reluctantly produced a letter on Dec. 21, 2023, confirming that Dr. Ren submitted the genetic sequence of SARS-CoV-2 to GenBank, a database operated by the NIH, on Dec. 28, 2019.
Interestingly, the nearly-completed COVID sequence that Dr. Ren submitted was never published, and was subsequently deleted from the database entirely.
“Dr. Ren’s submission was missing some of the technical (not scientific) information required for publication on GenBank,” the committee said. “She was notified by NIH staff on Dec. 31, 2019, that her submission would be deleted without the additional information.”
According to the New York Post, Dr. Ren’s SARS-CoV-2 submission to GenBank “was nearly identical to what Beijing eventually presented to the World Health Organization on January 11, 2020.” The HHS also confirmed that the sequence published on Jan. 12, 2020, “was nearly identical to the sequence that was submitted by Lili Ren” on Dec. 28, 2019.
