Fauci has been accused, especially by conservatives, of playing down the lab leak theory, in part to protect the reputation of NIAID, which helped to fund controversial bat research at Wuhan. "But we need to keep on investigating until a possibility is proven".

Paul is one of the most vocal Fauci critics who's pushing that Fauci's emails prove the doctor is lying about whether the Wuhan lab pursued what's called "gain of function" research - which would make a virus more contagious or deadly.

The emails, which were released to media organizations as part of a Freedom of Information Act request, show Fauci navigating the early days of the pandemic when he became a public face of the US government's response.

This May, Dr Fauci said he is "not convinced" the virus originated naturally and expressed support for an investigation.

'But in our experience with grantees, including Chinese grantees, which we have had interactions with for a very long period of time - they are very competent, trustworthy scientists, ' Fauci testified. The White House said two branches of the intelligence community believe the Sars-Cov-2 virus was transmitted naturally, but a third believes it came from the Wuhan Institute. Scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology subsequently visited the cave to take samples from the bats.

USA intelligence agencies are still investigating reports that researchers at the Chinese Virus Research Institute in Wuhan were seriously ill in 2019, a month before the first COVID-19 case was reported.

But in recent days, wit all di criticism and worldwide probe about di virus origin and new reports of Covid-related sickness for di region weeks before dem officially identify wetin e be, di theory don begin cause serious debate again.

Fauci responded, 'Many thanks for your kind note'.

A National Institutes of Health specialist with a career spanning seven United States presidents, Dr Fauci, 80, became the face of the nation's Covid-19 response and has since been the subject of both effusive praise and ferocious criticism.

Lionised on prayer candles and bobble-head toys, the emails show Dr Fauci professing discomfort with the adulation coming from many corners of the internet. 'Let me say clearly that as far as World Health Organization is concerned all hypotheses remain on the table'.

- And then given that there were some things that Fauci said privately that contracted- contrasted with what he said publicly, whether it was masks or whether or not someone who had the virus could have immunity, or you know, other questions as well.

Di emails also reveal Dr Fauci frequently and firmly shut down rumours say President Trump bin dey censor am.
