Next Generation host Steve Hilton has slammed Dr Anthony Fauci for ‘lying’ about his role in gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology after a newly resurfaced video shows him advocating the experiments.

The Fox News host claimed Dr Fauci has lied about his potential role in the development of Covid-19 and the alleged U.S. funding of gain of function at the Wuhan lab.

Hilton also claimed that the video of Dr Fauci will ‘put to rest any question’ that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) commissioned gain of function research on bat coronaviruses in Wuhan.

In the resurfaced video from 2012 at a gain of function conference, Dr Fauci, the head of the NIAID, said gain of function research has been ‘integral’ to basic research.

Gain of function research is a controversial field that involves collecting dangerous viruses and genetically modifying them to be more deadly, in order to study the risks of future outbreaks.

Hilton slammed Fauci after the resurfaced video emerged, arguing that the technique of reverse genetics used in gain of function research has been used in a number of projects which were partly funded by NIAID
