Ex-CDC Director Says Fauci ‘Gave Terrorists A Recipe’ For Bird Flu, Predicts ‘Major Pandemic’

Robert Redfield, former CDC Director, said his biggest fear for a future pandemic is a genetically manipulated bird flu, given that NIH-funded scientists in 2012 published instructions for making such a pathogen cross the “species barrier” to humans, a highly unlikely result from viral evolution.
Redfield said that he argued to then-National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci —  his future antagonist on COVID origins and gain-of-function research — that the research should not be published.
“I think it’s a miracle that no one’s used that yet,” Redfield said. “But I do think we’re at high risk for laboratory-created bird flu that will have high pathogenicity for man,” given the “highly inadequate” biosecurity of dozens of labs handling dangerous pathogens.
