Dr. Anthony Fauci falsely claimed he’s “always” been open to the probability that COVID-19 began to spread as a result of a leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“People forget that, but if you go back then, even though you lean towards feeling that this is more likely a natural occurrence, we always felt that you’ve got to keep an open mind. All of us,” Fauci said on “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday. “We didn’t get up and start announcing it, but what we said, ‘keep an open mind and continue to look.’”

“If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what’s out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated. … Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species,” Fauci said at the time.

“Based on the scientific evidence, he also doesn’t entertain an alternate theory — that someone found the coronavirus in the wild, brought it to a lab, and then it accidentally escaped,” National Geographic reported.

In recently released emails between Fauci and other health officials, EcoHealth Alliance head Dr. Peter Daszak, who had ties to the Wuhan lab, thanked the COVID adviser for minimizing the lab leak theory in exchange for pushing a “natural origin” story.

“I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and
